The problem isn't the wight. It is the volume. This chronic pain is the a smptom of an overuse injury. Kind of like carpel tunnel. When are people going to realize that you can only do so many sets when you train natural? If you are in pain you need to cut back. People dammage their joints and tend...

Re: Pain in the inner elbow... suggestions for alternatives.

Ob wrote: I have had a sore inner elbow for the last year and a half almost. From time to time I've had elbow pain just as you describe. Mine seems always to come from doing chin ups. When it gets bad enuf I stop the chins. Once it got so bad I laid off all bicep work for a while, until it improved ...

Chins as a compound movement

Doing a full body workout at the gym today, I moved my chin up work to early in the session, before any other leg work. I was surprised to notice how the chins affected my legs, i.e., made them feel like I'd done a set of light wt. squats. Guess I'd never noticed it before because I've always done t...

Muscle Milk and lipids

Thanks for all the good input. I'm pretty clean insofar as diet. Hardly any refined (white flour), grind my own flax meal for my oatmeal. Eat sardines 1 x week, salmon or other fish 1-2 x week, also 2 fish oil capsules daily, very little red meat. Avoid fried stuff like the plague. Do the "lots of m...

Muscle Milk

When I got my lab numbers from a recent annual physical, I was disappointed to see that my LDL was up from 122 to 140 over the past year. Total jumped from 187 to 213. My diet and exercise routine has been pretty constant EXCEPT several months ago I began using Muscle Milk. Don't use it every day bu...

Midsection ?

Can someone tell me the correct name for the procedure in which you pull your abdomen in as if you're trying to make your belly button touch your spine and hold it for several seconds. I learned this first from a chiropractor, then later saw it mentioned on a weight training message board. It has a ...

Morning lifting

Re: Lifting early in the morning. When I started lifting eight years ago, I began on the floor of our bedroom. Soon I had too much stuff (i.e., dumbbells, a bar, a bench I mail ordered from J.C. Penneys) so I moved to a spare bedroom. I lifted every morning for a month or so until I discovered a mes...

No growth biceps

Hi JHS-Curious about your age. I've been lifting for eight years and have added no more than a quarter to a half inch to my bi's. Like you, they are hard and well-defined, but I've long ago given up on adding any thing significant to their size. Now, I'm a fairly ectomorphic kinda build to begin wit...

Dumbbell pullovers

I've wondered for a long time why it is that the recommended position for doing d.b. pullovers is lying across the bench rather than along the length of it. I find lying the length of the bench much more comfortable. Am I missing something, i.e., sacrificing some subtle benefit that lying across the...
