Sticky Thread Sticky: Quit doing your own bench liftoffs!!!

I've been in and out of numerous ortho offices the past 6 months trying to rehab a myriad of shoulder issues. A posterior labral tear being the root issue. I was unsure of the exact cause of the tear until I saw a surgeon that really understood bench form and how it relates to shoulder health. I...

Slap tear in Shoulder

Hi all, So after gyms reopening and relieving me of some tough mental health issues, I've gone and got myself a slap tear in my shoulder. I require surgery which is 4-6 months out of action and probably longer to regain the same muscle/strength back. My question is, within reason, can I...

Sharp middle back when hyperextending back

Lately, when I bend backward, like for a full bridge, or the cow pose of cat-cow, I get a sharp pain in the middle of my spine. Not really lower or upper back, but right in the middle. I've recently started doing core work (hollow holds, jack-knifes, Russian twists, sit-ups, etc.) and I'm wondering...

Hernia Recovery and Post-Op Durability

Hey all, apparently I have a hernia. Not super uncommon, I know. What's frustrating is the fact that it's a hernia that I previously had repaired. (A hiatal hernia in my diaphragm, repaired via a laproscopic nissen fundoplication.) I can't speculate the reason it happened; no one has an internal...

Mid-back pain when squatting

Hey guys, I started working out 4 months ago after a long break. When I squat close to my 5RM, which is unfortunately only 85kg, I keep getting pain in middle back (thoracic region). It feels spinal to me. Any thoughts of the possible injury here? Maybe herniated disc? And what is the best...

Sub-scapular Impingement

I’ve had a sub-scapular impingement for 3 years. It’s mainly tight in the armpit/lat area and sometime radiates to the middle of my shoulder blade. Chest and shoulder exercises are iffy. I can do rows and it feels blah kind of in the moment but normally feels better after I’m done working out. ...

Wrap for Wrist Injury

I can no longer hold a barbell with my wrist position in the position it needs to be in order to do bench presses. After X-rays I was told that I have a torn Scapholunate ligament in my left wrist. (I assume that an injury incurred when I hit a heavy bag over 20 years ago has caught up to me). Can...

Lower Back Pain

I wanted to follow up on a thread I made here a few weeks ago under another account but it's gone. And I can't remember my old account. Anyway I hurt my lower back doing squats (I mistakenly thought it was weighted leg raises) and it didn't prevent me from squatting but it did prevent me from...

Thumbs down Dumbbell Press Internal Rotation/Proper Form?

I have a new fear and it's dumbbell presses. I've been practicing my form for at least 5+ months now and it's pretty solid. I push my chest out, arch my back and decompress my scapula with my shoulder blades pulled back. However I have a habit of my shoulders raising and not staying back when I...

Exclamation I can not extend my arms more than 90 Degrees without severe pain

I know I've looked this up on google and saw a couple of threads on this topic. But none of them seem to be the exact problem I am having. People say it could be DOMS. People say it can be a tendon problem. So I just started Working out after a 4 month break. I guess I might have went a little...

Fractured talus - replacement exercises needed

I've got four fractures in my talus, and two grade 2 tears in the ankle ligaments. I've been warned it's a potential 6-18 month recovery, if it recovers at all (they may need to replace my ankle joint, or fuse it). I've been moping around for the last 10 months, doing the odd bit in the gym, but...
