I need wraps

The only thing I know about having healthy knees is not letting quads overtake your hammies

2018-04-07 05:07:25 UTC  

so it doesn't pull your patella around out of place

2018-04-07 05:08:33 UTC  

I pretty much don't have a meniscus nor a good chunk of cartilage in my knee

2018-04-07 05:08:44 UTC  


2018-04-07 05:08:47 UTC  

Tends to cause a lot of stability issues

2018-04-07 05:09:02 UTC  

Plus a lot of inflammation there

2018-04-07 05:09:06 UTC  

mine clicks, cause I didn't treat it right for awhile

2018-04-07 05:09:22 UTC  

Yeah I've no advice to help you there haha

2018-04-07 05:10:12 UTC  

Just got a shitty surgeon to do my survey, lol

2018-04-07 05:10:26 UTC  

Told me it was going to be a minor fix prior

2018-04-07 05:11:14 UTC  

Next thing I know in the post op he's like "Yeah turns out it was a lot more damaged than we thought it was gonna be. But don't worry, it'll feel like new in 6 months!"

2018-04-07 05:11:26 UTC  

3 1/2 years later I'm still waiting

To be fair though, should've expected that it was bad. Most people when they tear their meniscus can often continue to compete and lift for quite some time, even up to the day of their surgery. I put any weight on it or if my knee twisted the slightest it was enough to put me on the ground.

2018-04-07 05:13:12 UTC  

that's shit

2018-04-07 05:13:47 UTC  

Making me really want to treat mine right now haha

2018-04-07 05:14:08 UTC  

Lol you should be fine. TRUST ME, you'll know when it's bad lol

2018-04-07 05:15:00 UTC  

Also, I think it got so bad because I tore it on a Monday pretty bad, but continued playing until the last few bits of the game on Friday where I was cut several times by a Tight End.

2018-04-07 05:15:12 UTC  

I used to use way to much quad and no posterior chain when squatting , that's what caused whatever little damage I have rn

2018-04-07 05:15:39 UTC  

right, gotta rest shit

2018-04-07 05:16:03 UTC  

when I fucked up my foot, I nursed the hell out of it for like a month

2018-04-07 05:16:20 UTC  

now I'm kicking harder than before with it :)

2018-04-07 05:16:30 UTC  

don't kick metal poles

2018-04-07 05:18:07 UTC  

I'll stick to getting my tongue frozen on them lol

the real suomi

2018-04-07 21:37:24 UTC  

I think I have lowbar down now. 4 weeks of 10x10 really helped. Pulled 455 sumo the other day so might make the switch (gasp) idk yet

2018-04-07 21:37:24 UTC  

Lots of volume lol

2018-04-07 21:37:28 UTC  

Damn wtf at those reps

2018-04-07 21:37:41 UTC  

Cardio for days

2018-04-07 21:37:50 UTC  

For a powerliftwr I do volume blocks so I don’t have to run

2018-04-07 21:38:23 UTC  

Or run as much*. Slowly building back down to strength. Hoping this helps me finally break 500 squat

2018-04-07 21:38:29 UTC  

Powerwalking crew checking in

2018-04-07 21:38:39 UTC  

If you're pushing those numbers you're doing something right obviously.

2018-04-07 21:38:41 UTC  

Nice numbers.

2018-04-07 21:39:24 UTC  

Thanks, next week I go to 5x10. Hoping to run that to 365 then deload and hit some strength blocks

2018-04-07 21:40:07 UTC  

>tfw want to lift heavy but also be cut
