    I figured I could complain here.

    It's been 7 weeks since I've worked out. I've dropped around 10 pounds, all thanks to a 'minor' tricep tear. I'll find out the next mode of dealing with it on thursday, but they dont believe it is bad enough for surgery. This shit does NOT want to get any better.

    The injury occurred during a grappling/sparing session, and now I cant hit a god damn upper body weight. It's really interesting, I can still swing a bat, but I cant tricep extend 10 pounds.

    Venting....... Venting...... Venting........

    I'm DYING for a good 250x10 flat bench chest day followed by some mean deadlifts. I cant WAIT to get back.

    Of course. I've been keeping the leggies going, more cardio lately though. Figured I would take advantage of the situation and increase my gas tank before I get back to lifting and grappling.

    do dumbell shit with the other arm...

    i know a bunch of guys who have torn their biceps/triceps and in addition to hitting the legs hardcore they would do DB stuff with their good side and it alloweded them to maintain more of their strength...

    By doing weights with the good arm it helps the neurological pathways to speed the healing process of the injured arm.

    Then you have very poor understanding of physiology and do not want to retain as much muscle and strength as possible. Congrats.

    How about you send me a link to a useful doctoral study on the physiology of what you are suggesting, instead of your opinion.

    How about you listen to anecdotes of experienced lifters instead of look for doctoral studies of physiology? My post was in jest, but in reality you should listen to people who have gone through the same things. Working out one side of the body will help preserve the strength of the other, disabled side.

    Okay... I've been lifting for well over 6 years. I run around in single digit body fat most of the year and press well more than twice my weight on any meaningful exercise. (Or I should say any e-penis internet measureable lift) I have not heard of this suggestion and want more than the casual lifters opinion in OT.

    SORRY.

    And if that's the case I'd be happy to oblige, just show me something more than a poster's opinion in OT.

    I dont mean to discredit anyone, but Id like to read shit that has some basis.

    I did not post my opinion but instead what has worked for multiple Elite powerlifters I train with. Which is why i posted the following.



    If I had a link or an article I would post that but I don't. Just what I have seen work for other lifters. Give it a shot.

    The casual lifters opinion?

    BDR is an elite level nationally ranked powerlifter

    I'm a competitvie Strongman and can likely rep your max deadlift more than 10 times. I'd probably guess 15-20+. :big grin:

    GTLifter is a sensitive nerd but is an elite powerlifter.

    Several people I've trained with (who are all elite) have done the same thing and they are some of the strongest guys in the world.

    Please do not imply that you are somehow above any of the above posters. You did mean to discredit, don't kid yourself.

    Thank you.
