Workout/Lifting Thread and Health Thread

    Yeah, don't really do the protein anymore. Occasionally will make casein ice cream before bed but very infrequently. In fact, my supplement rotation is down to a pre-workout, which I drink on my commute home so I don't talk myself out of training for the evening, and BCAA's.

    This still a thing?

    Been injured for awhile.  Haven't lifted in awhile and it sucks. Slowly rehabbing and just doing cardio/yoga.

    Have a 5k coming up on Thanksgiving, have not done much in a month or too. Have a 4 week old baby (and a 20 month old) so finding 20 minutes to go run is becoming hard. It ends up having to be at 7:30 and it's pitch black outside. I would try mornings but so far sleeping 4-5 hours isn't enough to get my ass outta bed to do it.

    What happened if you don't mind me asking?

    Haven't lifted any weights in months, but have been golfing a ton, and since getting my Apple Watch I've been motivated to just move as much as possible. Lots of walking.

    Still climbing regularly. I can now dabble with v4s.

    I have the itch to get back to the gym now though. The one at the climbing gym is small and shitty. My job pays up to $200/month for “wellness” claims so I may join a cheaper place for the hell of it.

    Just joined a sports and wellness facility. Trying to get back into some better shape after my knee surgery.  I’m a member of Silver Sneakers, so it’s free.

    Slacked off this summer, then Mrs. Z and I started hitting the gym again two months ago.  Now we get up at 4:30 AM to go work out four days a week.  Wasn't fun at first, now it's just okay.

     I'll go legs-back-bi's on two days, chest, shoulders, tri's on the other two.  No rest between movements.  Moved to a high-rep (30 per set) approach and it seems to be working. 

    And I started bench-pressing again, after a 30-year hiatus.  I'm only using - don't laugh too hard - 95 lbs.  It's a start

    However, no more cardio for now.  My right hip failed on me this spring.  Can still do leg extensions and curls, but no leg presses or full cardio.   Planning on joint replacement maybe next spring.

    Core muscle injury (formerly known as a "sports hernia").  It takes a long time to rehab from it and it sucks.

    I had a sports hernia in 2009. Initially thought I had an STD. Lol

    Searing random pain in the groin area. Freaked me the fuck out. Took a few doctors visits to get an accurate diagnosis. It was minor but still took a while to heal, I wasn’t right for months.

     

    In other news. I just got a yoga mat.

    I started rehabbing near the end of July.  It has gotten better, but it definitely has some way to go.  How long did it take for you?  I inititally thought I had a real hernia.

    Discomfort wasn't completely gone until around 4 months. I didn't feel comfortable lifting weights until 6 months. I took it very easy though and changed the way I worked out completely.

    Still going 6 days a week or so, splitting between running 3-4 miles/day or doing an hour of push-pull lifting. No real goals in mind. Just something to do to kill time and stress. Too bad my diet isn't anything to brag about. I feel like I'm looking trimmer but the number on the scale stays the same.

    Yup, sounds like my life 3 months into rehabbing Smfh.
