Re: Torn Calf Muscle

Rest, ice, elevate, immobilize with a boot, cane/crutches as needed are common treatments. Plus anti-inflammatories/analgesics. No heat. No stretching yet. If you can't walk without a serious limp after 3-5 days, or if the pain is getting significantly worse instead of better, you need more medical ...

Re: Is this a problem?

I would say that your knees flare because your body is trying to get your knees backwards, and your body is trying to make things as easy as possible. It's possible the load is too heavy. Flaring your knees moves them posteriorly. You feel it more in your low back because your trunk is more inclined...

Re: Fiction books you've read multiple times

I don't tend to re-read books as there are so many good ones out there I haven't read yet. However, I like to re-read Stephen King's short stories (but not his full length novels). The earlier stuff he wrote, the better. Like the Bachman books already mentioned. The Long Walk FTW If you like Michael...

Re: Defranco's DL Tutorial.

I don't do 5 or 8 at all. Guess I've been reading too much Rippetoe.

I'm going to have to try that. I also need to find some stronger guys to train with.

Thanks for the link!

Re: Upper back pain after sleeping

Pain in the thoracic spine region is often referred from the lower cervical spine.

Often cervical spine retraction exercises can abolish this pain.

Re: Adductors

Balancing your pelvis. Not just pelvis (anterior) tilt, but also pelvis rotation (in transverse plane). Plus assessing ilium rotation (anterior/posterior) on each other/sacrum, and any ilium upslip. Unless you can feel hunks of scar tissue, I wouldn't focus on (1). I like (3), but you don't necessar...

Re: Hindu squats: Are they knee poison?

Depends on what kind of shape your knees are in.

For me 10+ years ago, no problem, but boring as heck over 100 reps.
