    I have a herniated disc in my L back (L5-S1), as well as my neck. I dealt with severe L back pain for years. I also have been dealing with SI joint pain on both sides, but now I have very little...
  • I have a SLAP tear in my left shoulder. Doctor...

    I have a SLAP tear in my left shoulder. Doctor suspects a minor one, but there is a possibility it is major. Anyhow, I opted the non-surgery route.

    I am currently benching 200 on it. Basically I...

    I have a garage gym due to the pandemic. My landmine is attached to a half rack. I might be able to do this, would need to elevate the back of the half rack.

    I also have bad wrists though lol. But...

    Wow you got it a lot worse than me. I also have an issue with my right SC joint, it protrudes when I retract my shoulders and is clearly visible. Only bothers me doing pull-ups, but if my form is...

    With the pandemic getting surgery done would be a lot harder, if not impossible. Plus surgery is risky, it needs to be done right and there are a lot of doctors who don't really know what they are...

    That's a good point, I can see how that would make it pretty similar.
  • That may be good enough for me. My guess is it...

    That may be good enough for me. My guess is it wouldn't work the lateral delts as well as OHP does, so maybe substituting it with not just landmine press, but also lateral raises? Maybe not a big...

    I've heard that is more like an alternative to incline bench press than it is an alternative to overhead press. Looking to get the same benefits as overhead press ideally. Or even just most of the...
  • Landmine press - Overhead Press alternative?

    Overhead press pretty much murders both my shoulders. I got diagnosed with torn labrums in both, though they are only minorly torn. Small SLAP tear in left, small posterior tear in right.

    Anyway...

    I've had costochondritis.

    I popped the rib doing unilateral rows with my torso crunched. Any crunching movement bothers it, so I avoid those.

    I've had many injuries. Rest rarely helped much. For the most part, you gotta try to stay active, but stop heavy lifting. Going back to square one, toning things down until there is no pain, and then...

    You might have a damaged disc, or on the path to damaging a disc. You should probably take it easy. If your lower back hurts every time you deadlift, you maybe should stop or stop pushing yourself so...

    I had pain behind the knee, with a small lump. Took me years to discover that it was due to a free floating fabella bone, which is a useless bone behind the knee that only a minority of people have....

    Probably go see a doc, especially if you have insurance.

    If people knew curls are worthless, that I was plateaued on curls for months until I started deadlifting and overhead pressing etc again when my curls went up, no one would be curling.

    Have you seen a doctor, have you been diagnosed? Or are you just guessing here?

    Is there pain under the kneecap? Or is it completely off to the medial side of the front of the knee?

    If these lifts are really bothering your knees then you either need to stop doing them or...

    What scares me about yoga are all the poses that put your spine in a flexion position, which is an absolutely no-no with herniated discs.

    How do you know it was the prolotherapy or the body just healed on its own?

    I think as long as you are making progress you should not go through with surgery. Surgery is something you do if you have basically made no progress for a very long time and are running out of...
