    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.

    There's all sorts of horrible things that can happen with the shoulder that can be extremely debilitating and difficult or even impossible...

    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...

    If you suspect you may have a torn labrum or other serious injury, then you should absolutely see a doctor and perhaps get an MRI.

    I suffered a labral tear years ago. I was stupid enough to...

    Yea don't listen to Alan Thrall on this. His advice for ALL back pain is basically take a short break and quickly work your way back, which is the most bro-science crap I've ever heard in my life. He...

    Unless you are training for a bodybuilding competition or for some reason unable to do many compound barbell exercises, I would suggest you just stop curling altogether. I did bicep/wrist curls for...

    I think McGill is a solid resource. Give that a try for a while. Everything he has said and I have read of his sounds consistent with my experience, and makes a lot of sense.

    Ankle weights? Now I've officially heard it all. All except the things you actually need to do.

    The only thing that's gonna help is progressive strengthening, mobility, and improving posture done...

    You want my opinion? Throw all that **** out the window. Find a routine and stick to it. By routine I don't mean come up with a meal plan and follow it to the letter. I mean just eat whatever...

    Metabolism grows with muscle and size. If you are active, lift weights, and eat enough, you will have a high metabolism period. If you are eating so few calories, you probably don't have much muscle...

    Doing nothing but push-ups is a recipe for disaster. Very likely this has lead to huge muscle imbalances between the front of your torso and the back.

    I think this belongs in the weight loss/nutrition forums?

    Anyway 1000 calories/day sounds terrifyingly low. That's well below starvation diet. I fear you may have done damage to your body. Given...
