People want the result but don't want to put the hard work in.Ma dukes showed me her flabby tricep skin and asked me "what exercises can i do to get rid of this?"
Told her to stop eating ice cream and drinking iced tea and lemonade all the time. She got maaaad offended by that.
This.Man its crazy how people that don't understand this lifestyle almost get mad at you for eating clean everyday and **** like that. These people at my job just cant fathom it, they talk mad **** then wanna complain about having a gut
Seen an ortho.Advice...100% see a qualified ortho or PT (both ideally), if you haven't already. The shoulder girdle is a complicated complex.
I ALWAYS get the back in the day stories.My issue is they go out of their way to come and say sideways ****, its mainly about diet though, I don't hear many "back in my day" stories.
You’re losing weight so you’re doing something right.So guys, back in high school I played high school ball, and was very active and of course my metabolism was much higher than It is now. I weighed in at a lean 180 pounds back then. Had lean muscle and even saw my top abs. Fast forward to now..
I’m 26, not nearly as active. Weighed in at 220 at much heaviest and looked at myself in the mirror, saw my gut and said I need to make a lifestyle change. Started my cut on January 21 at 210 pounds. Today I weighed in at 184. So down 26 pounds, which isn’t too bad, but here’s the thing: As I’m approaching that weight of 180, my body composition isn’t nearly as similar to as it was in high school. My body fat percentage is way higher. I’m eating a substantial amount of protein everyday, counting all my macros, lifting and doing cardio 5 days a week. I want to get rid of all the possible body fat I can, before putting on muscle so should I continue losing to about 160, by continuing doing what I’m doing? Should I lower my carbs, up my protein and stick just to lifting? I’m stuck guys. Any help will be appreciated.
I see. If you can afford to pay the co-pay I'd definitely recommend getting the MRI. Usually an MRI with contrast injection is the most sensitive diagnostic test for shoulder injuries. If I were you and an ortho said small tear I'd want to know for sure.Seen an ortho.
I’d been having shoulder issues for months and finally went in. He sent me for X-Rays and everything was normal but for tissue injuries I’d really need an MRI but my insurance won’t pay for that out right. He signed me up for a month of PT.
He told me it’s most likely a small tear because i was still lifting relatively heavy weight.
Yea the doctor was bending me up like a pretzel Bent my arm in many positions.I see. If you can afford to pay the co-pay I'd definitely recommend getting the MRI.

Did the he/she just perform tests like tell you to rotate externally, internally, raise your arms with thumbs down, etc?
PT is good. They'll probably work on strengthening your rotator cuff and periscapular muscles. Most people don't know, but the rotator cuff is actually 4 muscles. Another reason I'd want to know if it's a tear. Could be any one of the 4.
I had a meeting last week and had to bring donuts for everyone, I didn't have any and everyone had a comment about it. “You’re too healthy” “lighten up live a little”"Hey, so and so brought donuts for everyone."
"He won't have any cause he's always healthy" *cornball stick up the *** laugh.
I'm just sitting there thinking **** off.
I would go to the PT, tell him what transpired with the ortho (he likely already has notes with a prescription and all that), and he'll tell you how you should proceed. They'll probably give you a full assessment which is great. In my experience doing PT is super helpful if you're 100% invested in it. Ask questions, do your own homework, follow the protocol. I learned a lot by doing PT and doing a ton of research. Eric Cressey, Tony Gentilcore, Brian Reddy, Mike Reinold are all great resources when it comes to the shoulder. Cressey trains MLB pitchers.Yea the doctor was bending me up like a pretzel Bent my arm in many positions.
Would you pause on the PT until I get an MRI or it doesn’t hurt to do PT no matter what the injury is?
Same dudes ask to hang out with me all the timeI dont take the comments from my coworkers to heart, just laugh it off and drink my protein shake during a pizza party...........
