Body broken?

Recommended Posts

Ok br0s. This one of my few srs posts. Over last few years i have noticed that my body has become increasingly fucked which i attribute to lifting and possibly gear/rec drug use. Always sore and need way more sleep and tired way more. Soreness is tendons in fingers, hands, forarms, elbows as well as back and chest and knee pain. probably other sht too from time to time, but what i described is almost constant. Feel often like my lungs are being crushed. Im not a little bitch so dont let it affect me much in everyday life but its making lifting difficult which is somethiung i care about. Atm im not getting stronger and cbf going to the gym often when before i would go almost every day and hate missing it. Anyway br0s, what drugs do i need to take to fix this?

Just to quote you 9762291220 "Not enough information given" to give accurate advise but I'll put my two cents in anyway. All I can think is ‘oh your poor body’. Maybe you should actually lay off taking anything at all and let your body recover. Have you seen the Dr? Have you ruled out serious illness? Do you have other issues like stomach / digestion problems and IBS or anything? Are you having heart palpitations? It could be anything from what you have said but I don't think adding drugs on top of drugs will help you at this stage.

I am more inclined to think its joint/bone/connective tissue related. Organs probably fine. No heart palpitations atm but had before, drug induced. Havent been doctor in years as they are useless. Blood tests maybe good idea though...Idk anything about health care system in country I currently live either, but I imagine doctor visits would be prohibitively expensive. I am wondering if increasing gh with peptides will help?

Just wondering if anyone else has felt similar and fixed it, and if so, how?

Feeling same as you lol. Wrist sore today after close grip bench, knee been stuffed for months.

Sore shoulder took months to fix - ended up dropping weights down to 60kg and doing more reps, seemed to help heal it.

If into trying drugs Maybe some sort of peptides tb500 etc? Probably more likely need to take a week off weights and vege out (not that I listen to that advice either)

it's called old age, get use to it

Ha - was gonna say this. You're not a teenager any more - no more invincible body. It sucks I know. Shit gets broken and you have to take care of it. Can't just lift 24/7 and expect it to sort itself out. Find a really good physio - it's better to go through institutions like a university as the chain of responsibility and actually sorting shit out is much more present there than in private practices. Aware yourself of better biomechanics - do research, doesnt have to be reading heaps, watching videos of people who know their shit about training sustainably, and you can fix yourself. Not just internet personalities. You'll probably get even stronger than you are if that is even humanely possible. Foam roll, stretch. If you dont want to put any effort into this you can even just pay a massage therapist + physio + osteopath + acupuncturist + whoever the f*ck else you can find to do it for you. 

Unless they are a genetic freak (rare), anyone who is over 25 and has been lifting anything reasonable for 5+ years has encountered some form of tightness, twinge or injury and had to do stretching, rehab etc. Every bodybuilder and powerlifter I have personally know does it (not saying that everyone in the world does). It's just part of life. 

I've got a slipped disc and have had it for like a year or more. It took me a fucking a long time of not being able to train properly at all, but not really knowing what it was, going through a million people, and probably fucking it up more to figure it out. Now I'm gonna have to put in 6months+ if not to actually fix it and be able to lift properly again. It's just life and the hand you get delt. If I just kept lifting and/or took drugs it wouldn't do anything cos the disc would still be slipped. It would just get worse.

If you've spent however many years training with 100s of kgs of barbell resting on your wrist at 90 degrees and not stretching of course your forearms are going to be tight - roll them and stretch them - if you think that's boring then get them massaged, pay someone, or get your gf to do it - all you need is some lube and a rolling pin, even skip the lube and go in dry. Your hips are probably tight - stretch them. This will probably relieve tension on your lower back. I've experienced this first hand when I did f*ck loads of cardio + dieting for a comp, probably took me 4 months of stretching etc for lower back to recover. You probably train chest heavy more than you do heavy rhomboid movements - Stretch your chest and lats and do some more rhomboid movements. These are basic things you can do - there are a lot more complex things you could try which is all avail online or through physios.

Inb4 you say I don't know what I'm talking about and Im a chobber. Almost everyone who comes in the gym has some kinda issue and can't even do a movement like squat, bench or dead because of it. All of my clients Squat Bench and Deadlift.  I can't deadlift 200+ kgs but I've helped countless people with shoulder/lower back/hip/lower cross/upper cross issues. It may be lame and uncool but It's easy and you just need to put some time and effort into rehab/prehab. The information isn't hard to find. And like I said you're on like 80000000k now so if you're that disinterested in putting any time/effor into it you can even pay a physio, a massage therapist and f*ck knows who else to sort it for you. And take all the drugs you want but it's not gonna fix tight muscles (my only other recommendation is prescription muscle relaxants e.g. Norflex).

maybe you need to start listening to those deer velvet and circulation adds on the radio, make a few calls

gota an older mate who swears by the velvet stuff

I don't know if it works, but do have glucosamine myself, but it was upping the fish oil that seemed to make the difference, or was it being 20kg lighter

Ha 90210's getting old! Just like Kelly, Steve, David, Donna, Brandon and that character Luke Perry played, everyone eventually turns into a 45 year old wrinkly dude trying hard to act like a cool teenager.

Welcome to the "I'm too old for this shit" club.

Whenever I read ur log you're lifting heavy and maxing out. Every day without deloads. If you actually backed off when something started to hurt and not train thru the pain cos u think ur a hard c*nt then the injuries wouldn't have accumulated to the point where you can't even lift now.

I would say most serious lifters are more likely to be plateauing as a result of overtraining rather than undertraining. There are three variables in training; VOLUME (total reps/sets, workload etc), INTENSITY (RPE, % of 1RM, going to failure, supersets/dropsets etc) and FREQUENCY (how many sessions a week, rest days etc). General rule is that you can keep two of the variables high but you need to keep at least one of them low or medium in order to prevent injuries and burnout.

TLDR cliffs:

Narcotics are your answer

I imagine doctor visits would be prohibitively expensive. I am wondering if increasing gh with peptides will help?

You're talking about increasing your GH and peptides, but getting a checkup is too expensive?!

At least go and get a full blood test done. Surely Aussie has an equivalent to Lab Tests where you can get yourself checked, with or without a doctor's referral.

Get a medicare card free then doctor visits like 6 $? And can specialist referral from there.

Avoid the doctors that advertise that they bulk bill, they assume drug addict if you ask for anything more intense than panadol
