    hey tank maybe you can help me with this. i'm trying this regimen done by most concussion clincs. exercise is apparently the #1 best way to get better. because of blood flow.

    basically it's a cardio extertion protocol.

    ex.

    week 1 - see how high you can get your heart rate up on 30 min of cardio without symptoms. everyday.

    week 2 - try to get your heart rate higher without aggravating symptoms

    week 3 - try to go higher

    week 4 - try weight lifting

    if it any point my symptoms get worse i have to back a week, meaning slower pace and intensity on cardio. (i'm doing incline treadmill as my choice)

    basically i won't be weight lifting for a total of 6 weeks now. i actually can do a REALLY light dumbbell workout at home. meaning only using my 15lb dumbbells without aggravating my symptoms. but for chest and back i don't really have much to do.

    so it'll be about 6 weeks without weight lifting in the gym. hoping at that point i can get someone to help me test myself in the gym. is there any way i can maximize not losing my muscle or strength? the dumbell workouts i only have enough energy for maybe once or twice a week. i was told not to exert myself to a point where i'm really tired. maybe that can improve over weeks. but i only have 15lb dumbbells at home unfortunately.

    should i just maximize my protein intake and hope for the best? i'm 170lbs right now. so about 120grams of protein a day. i can do body workouts. but for chest i'm limited to just pushups, and back i'm limited to just 15lb dumbell rows.



    i'll rep u so hard in ur dreams if u can help me get through this ****ing awful nightmare. i'm convinced concussion is the worst injury anyone can get. aside from the ****ed up injuries like 3rd degree burn on the face. rather have broken my arm or leg. i was my ****ing brain man. my quick thinking, memory, analyzing, tactical ability... and my athletic ability. i don't have any of it anymore. i was the ****in beast in my gym.

    they say most of the recovery gets done within 3 months. so i have 6 weeks left i think to maximize recovery. it's been 6 weeks for me since the concussion. 42 and 102 days are the average recovery times apparently. i think i will be one of those that has symptoms forever lol

    As for the imbalance, i can definitely relate. Mine is from nerve damage though. I'm doing good just to keep my left leg from shrivelling up. Anyway, uniliateral training is the best way to bring up a weak arm of leg. I cant do any squatting (well, i can, but it aggravates my arthritis so i just dont do it anymore) so I do leg press (one leg at a time so i dont have to load tons of plates and i can keep track of how my left leg strength is progressing) and bulgarian split squats.

    Take a look at this video for some ideas on how to bring up your weaker leg. The idea is to strengthen your weak leg up to match your strong leg, not to weaken your strong leg. The only way to weaken your strong leg would be to not use. But you'd have to not use your other leg, so it would get weaker too
    [youtube]skqExjx6AUA[ /youtube]

    Once you get both legs to be close to the same strength (i doubt they'll be in equal strength because they never really are), i cant say that that will fix the angle problem you see when sky diving though. It may help.
    Sorry to hear about the nerve damage and arthritis. Are the two related? Also I forgot to mention I was talking about my leg circumference not length. Thanks for the tips btw, hopefully they balance out

    Honestly, it sounds like a good plan. But really, i have no clue what to recommend in your situation. But starting low and slow and gradually pushing the envelope seems like an all around save method for a HUUUUUUUGE portion of scenarios

    Do you have any other symptoms? Anything out of the ordinary or random that sprung up after your injury that, at first glance, seems unrelated?

    Do you have any recommendations on what exercises I can do that target the upper body without putting too much stress on my leg? I know most cable work, anything standing, etc is out the window. But if I can still do some basic resistance sitting down I wanna at least keep some strength training going.
    Just do what I do. Move your exercises to the seated position. Put yourself in the mindset of someone in a wheelchair. Cables are a good idea (if your gym has them) because you dont have to lug around DBs but you can always roll them to your area if need be. Cables need to be incorporated into ALL workouts because of the constant tension anyway.

    There is also a little known Exercise Physiology "mind trick" (well, its kind of a psychological trick) where you continue to train the "good" limb. This helps to keep the injured limb from losing strength and mass. If you are feeling up to it (or maybe a few weeks down the recovery road) Try doing reverse hyper extensions to to keep your bad leg somewhat active. Just take it slow and approach with caution just to be sure you dont re-injure anything

    Nah they are independent. I am riddled with several types of arthritis. In my neck, mid back, low back, hips and knees. I also think i have it in the distal joint of my right pointer finger because i feel it when i use the scrolling wheel on my mouse too much. lol

    And lol at me confusing the leg length with quad circumference. How big is the size difference? I'm not positive, but i think the acceptable range on difference is 3-4 inches. Everyone is gonna have SOME size difference. I myself have an almost 2 in difference between my strong leg and the one with the nerve damage.

    But like i mentioned before, unilateral exercises are the best way to identify strength imbalances and bring one limb up to par with the other one. I do:
    -single leg leg press
    - bulgarian split squats
    -reverse lunges
    -side lunges
    I dont always do them all because my left leg tends to cramp VERY easily these days but when i feel good, i do what I can. If you can turn any leg exercise into a single leg exercise, then go for it and squeeze out an extra set with your weak leg and that should help bring it up to par after a few months. Just dont NOT work your strong leg

    hey tank, do you know any effective back muscle flexbilty exercises?

    i've been seeing a massage therapist for stress. and she says my right shoulder is rounded forward, while my left shoulder is fine, and my back has a **** ton of knots, and all my back muscles are too tight, like there is no flexibility to it or it's too tight.

    i do dynamic stretching, i did foam rolling before, not sure what effective back stretches there are.

    really dry mouth, i've had it for 2 months now. some yellowness on the tongue. an acupurtist same my tongue is paler for most young people. she said to eat beef, not sure why.

    recovery is not going good lol. HOWEVER, i worked my way up, and i'm able to almost lift as strong as i could in the gym, and I can workout for 2 hours everyday. an hour of lifting and hour of cardio, everyday. aside from that everything cognitive, memory, sleep, and visual is...... doesn't seem to be recovering. i'm guessing several months or years to feel "normal" again.

    taking a ton of nootropics, spent like $500 on supplements lol... they don't seem to be doing anything. but i guess we never know what supplements do.

    Your right shoulder is rounded you say? Just an assumption but you must be right handed and you spend a LOT of time on your computer (right hand constantly on the mouse i'm guessing?) Shoulders rounded forward is VERY common these days with jobs becoming more and more sedentary and computer centered. We are constantly reaching for things in front of us but rarely pulling things toward us (so the chest and delts dont necessarily get stronger but the muscle fibers shorten in length and cause the rounded effect.

    Assuming this is true, then its likely you just need to strengthen your upper back and that should fix your problem. But a physio or maybe a PT would need to take a look at you to say for sure that no fiber shortening hasnt occured for sure though

    yellow pallor tongue can have a few different causes.
    -jaundice is one, but you'd see it in your eyes and/or nail beds before your tongue i'm sure.
    -geographic tongue. harmless inflammation of the tongue. looks like you have red islands usually on the sides near the back of the tongue
    -build up of dead/dying enlarged skin cells. in this case REALLy brush your tongue or get a tongue scraper. Not too sure why she mentioned eat meat though

    Its good that you are back strength/endurance wise. No clue about everything else though. Did your doc say that it could take a long time to cognitively recover?

    that's... true I spent most of my time on the computer and I am right-handed. i'll try seeing a physical therapist... would a chiropractor be good too? rather just do the one trip.

    she mentioned beef specifically because it has iron? i think i can't remember what she said. she said beef is better than chicken because of a nutrient, i think it was iron. she said it would help my tongue become less pale.

    yeah... my doctor thinks it's going to be at least several months. there's no telling how long though. hoping for the best... i read the average concussion recovery times are either 42 days or 102 days or something like that. so i've still got 4 weeks left. but lol i'm pretty damn sure i'm not going to recover in another month...

    i've got INSANE visual problems. memory problems, sleep problems... it's been hell man. the gym is literally the only thing that makes me feel again.

    beef for the iron was a thought but i dont know that low iron and yellow tongue pallor are connected.

    also, a single visit to a chiro wont fix your shoulder. Its going to take multiple visits, depending on the cause of the issue also

    Ok brah I have been to doctors and basically let us see if you can help.

    Herniated cervical disc, C6 left side. They say basically I have to live with the pain cause the tingling in my hands are not worth the surgery...constant pain but manageble with stretching but cannot sit for long periods of time.

    Hamstring tear, I try rest, I haven't done legs in about 12 weeks now (just light) but it keeps re-tearing (been like this for about 1 year now). I am lost for words, I am trying stretching, bands, warm-ups, and been doing crossfit strangely enough has help. I am stable now but I am really scared to go above two plates as that was the last tear that happened. Strange thing is that it is in different sides of the leg and last one was in the qaud...

    Help...pls

    Hamstring tear, I try rest, I haven't done legs in about 12 weeks now (just light) but it keeps re-tearing (been like this for about 1 year now). I am lost for words, I am trying stretching, bands, warm-ups, and been doing crossfit strangely enough has help. I am stable now but I am really scared to go above two plates as that was the last tear that happened. Strange thing is that it is in different sides of the leg and last one was in the qaud...

    Help...pls
    What kind of doctors have you seen? Have you seen a physical/physiotherap[ist? Or how about a chiropractor? I would wager that a PT/chiro is your best bet because your problem possibly is due to a structural/muscle related issue. A lot of times in the neck, tight muscle can pull the neck wayyyyy out of alignment. So can sleeping with the wrong pillow, too many pillows, th wrong kind of matress. Muscle fibers can even shorten and cause TONS of havoc

    How do you know you have a ham tear? Did a Dr Dx it for you? It doesnt make much since that you rested for 3 months and it didnt heal (at least for the most part).

    Thanks for the reply, I went for a MRI and the herniated disc was confirmed and then went to a physio who shows me some stretches and basically stretched my neck out every time. It didn't help at all (granted I haven't done the exercises she prescribed as much as I should, basically making your neck like a pigeon when it walks and using a band whilst doing it. Neck muscle strengthening exercises).

    Hamstring was definitely a tear since I heard the pop going down, went to an sports physician who looked at me and said I have no imbalances but I have no ligaments on my right lateral foot, he prescribed a ankle brace which I wore but it sucks so much I cannot use it and had a subsequent pop whilst using it, so I said fk that.

    No we are were we are.

    i don't have the credibility in saying this tank but i think chiropractor should never be recommended. i went to one for my neck and it seems to have made it really annoyingly achy sore. it seems to be more flexible, but one of the worst decisions i've made in my life. but the fact that i'm dealing with tbi, migraines, depression, and anxiety, probably makes it 10,000% worse.

    went to one because all my brain injured buddies in my tbi support group are going to one, they said it helps a lot, and i thought it'd help me as well, but now i've got this annoying achy soreness.

    that's cool. Chiro's arent actually doctors and its fine with me to have a healthy concern over them. The thing about adjustments are, especially in your hip and upper back, they are literally and physically moving your bones and joints through the thick muscles where they have been for (in some cases) decades. Often times, there is scar tissue, bone spurs and fibrotic projections that are in the way that have to get broken up and will make you hella sore. In my experience, the more muscular you are, and the more adjustments you need, the more sore you will be ESPECIALLY after your first adjustment. Also, its always recommended that you finish your treatment plan and not attend one or two appointments and then quit. at the very least, tell your chiro about how you feel and if you are thinking about not continuing. He/she can probably ease your anxiousness about the visits. But if they seem like they arent taking no for an answer then i'd def leave and find another.

    I'm not trying persuade you to do something against your better judgement or anything but I will say that I have seen a chiro almost all my life (with the exception of the past 6 years. Chitty insurance). It helped me growing up with asthma and I REALLY wish i kept going to my chiro when I started having disk problem. She probably could have helped me rehab my disc and not have had to have surgery.

    That being said, there are risks to chiro care. Here is what the Mayo Clinic says:
    Chiropractic adjustment is safe when it's performed by someone trained and licensed to deliver chiropractic care. Serious complications associated with chiropractic adjustment are overall rare, but may include:

    A herniated disk or a worsening of an existing disk herniation
    Compression of nerves in the lower spinal column (cauda equina syndrome)
    A certain type of stroke (vertebral artery dissection) after neck manipulation
    Don't seek chiropractic adjustment if you have:

    Severe osteoporosis
    Numbness, tingling or loss of strength in an arm or leg
    Cancer in your spine
    An increased risk of stroke
    A known bone abnormality in the upper neck

    After the procedure
    Some people experience minor side effects for a few days after chiropractic adjustment. These may include headache, fatigue or pain in the parts of the body that were treated.

    Results
    Chiropractic adjustment can be effective in treating low back pain, although much of the research done shows only a modest benefit โ€” similar to the results of more conventional treatments. Some studies suggest that spinal manipulation also may be effective for headaches and other spine-related conditions, such as neck pain.

    Not everyone responds to chiropractic adjustments. A lot depends on your particular situation. If your symptoms don't begin to improve after several weeks of treatments, chiropractic adjustment might not be the best option for you.
    Personally, i think you should give it a shot, but DEFINITELY only do it if you get the clearance from a QUALIFIED neuro. So far, it seems like you've seen amateurs. But if you see a GOOD chiro, they'll know when and when not to do any adjustments

    I think it's just my anxiety lol. I specifically went to one of the top 3 rated chiropractors in the city, 42 5 star google reviews, 24 years of experience, maybe i wasn't really sure of how it would work. i wasn't expecting to be sore. my tbi buddies say it's normal to be sore, but the soreness has been a week so far, they also tell me that's normal. yeah they basically told me the same thing you told me lol.

    literally like all of them are doing chiropractors. my tbi support group. which is reassuring, it's also reassuring for you to tell me that you've done it too.

    the soreness and achyness has just been such a bother ON TOP of the insane tbi symptoms. but one of the guys in my tbi group says he's been sore for a week as well. which is reassuring.

    well, like i said, YOU are the one who should ultimately decide whether to go or not. However, if i were you, i'd go back to one of those chiros, and before any adjustments are made, spill your guts on how you feel and let him/her ease your mind. But if they seem like they are pressuring you, walk the fuk away and do they same with the next one.

    Also, i know ive referenced athlean x a chit ton of times on the isc and in here, but i just found out that jessie, the guy he features in a lot of his videos, is a post concussive patient. Maybe following him can get you some more info https://www.instagram.com/p/BvkiyNJFdJs/

    (You have probably been asked this several times. Sorry if thats the case link me to the page in your thread. )

    What is your take on muscle recovery for both strength and growth.
    I have always thought 48hrs was the minimum rest period for growth.. yet training programs like smolov squat can have you squatting several days in a row. And boast 100lb increase in lift. i'm not keen on starting a program like this for fear of injury. But i supposed with proper dynamic stretching and warm up, form, ect. Should be able to avoid injury.

    In your opinion is it in ones interest to train a single muscle group 2 days in a row. What are the pros/cons.

    The common consensus is that if soreness carries into the 2nd day of training the same muscle group, then the likelihood of injury/overtraining/etc is increased. If you dont do this often then I cant imagine it would be a HUGE deal, but still not ideal, ESPECIALLY if you train with high intensity each session.

    Personally, i'm a little weary of training the same muscle group 2 days in a row I'm not sure there is a lot of studies that really look into and analyze the results. I could be wrong though. I would imagine that if you wanted to at least try it, you'd need to start easy and work your way up in intensity as well as make sure you are staying very well hydrated and fed. Those are about the only tips I can think of at the moment to ensure risks are minimized. Oh, also, save your stretching for AFTER your workouts. Stretching can reduce power and strength output. Warm ups are much better. Its also ok to do ROM exercises to though.

    I'm not familiar with smolov because i've never done it so i cant really comment on it. I do know that the russians cleaned fukking house when the technique was put into wide spread use though

    Most of what i have read online I'm not really sure the qualifications of the person or persons writing the articles. Because it isn't cited for some reason and i don't know the source company releasing the article to be reputable.so i can't assume the statements are factual

    i'm not a professional athelete and i'm not really aiming for a huge temporary strength gain for no reason than to brag to myself. So training without rest just doesn't make sense to me. I do want to obviously increase the weights i'm lifting.. but like you said i'm also weary of training one muscle group consecutive days. I do train high intensity and high volume but i'm always changing and adapting to various methods of training to improve where i'm at.

    I was actually curious because i posted in another thread where a pt had a beginner train glutes 5ร—15 hip thrusts consecutive days.. just seemed strange even though she's a beginner and probably lifting lighter weights and you see a lot of girls in the gym training only for that booty. But i'm thinking training consecutive days would be counterproductive for growth. My thinking has always been to allow 48 hours before training the same muscle again. Because the growth happens during periods of rest not while actually training right? Someone who i guess is a pt chimed in and said basically ignore me and train consecutive days is fine so now i'm confused thinking maybe i'm not pushing myself hard enough.

    i'm not a professional athlete and i'm not really aiming for a huge temporary strength gain for no reason than to brag to myself. So training without rest just doesn't make sense to me. I do want to obviously increase the weights i'm lifting.. but like you said i'm also weary of training one muscle group consecutive days. I do train high intensity and high volume but i'm always changing and adapting to various methods of training to improve where i'm at.

    I was actually curious because i posted in another thread where a pt had a beginner train glutes 5ร—15 hip thrusts consecutive days.. just seemed strange even though she's a beginner and probably lifting lighter weights and you see a lot of girls in the gym training only for that booty. But i'm thinking training consecutive days would be counterproductive for growth. My thinking has always been to allow 48 hours before training the same muscle again. Because the growth happens during periods of rest not while actually training right? Someone who i guess is a pt chimed in and said basically ignore me and train consecutive days is fine so now i'm confused thinking maybe i'm not pushing myself hard enough.
    only YOU can really know if you are pushing yourself hard enough. That being said:
    1. You wont know if you are pushing yourself TOO hard unless you are constantly testing your limits
    2. I learned a chit ton of things in the army and one thing that stands out is that you will surprise the absolute CHIT out of yourself with what you can make yourself do when you 1.) Really want it 2.) Say fuk it and go for it (but still place personal safety as a high priority. Educating yourself on what you are doing is paramount. Never stop learning and educating yourself)

    I say give it a shot and try it out for a month or so See how it feels. If its not for you then its not for you. Move on to the next thing that catches your eye

    I did find this Case Study (though its not a REAL case study) but the guy has a BS and a MS in exercise phys)

    Well, nutrition is my weak spot but my guess is:
    4A. Sugar
    4B. Sugar (coffee), Pepsi, Jerky/Tortilla/Dressing/Granola (all have added sugar in them if you dont make them yourself), Sourdough bread too. Its just all purpose flour, no whole grains or anything

    5. 1 package of beef jerky (because of the sugar and preservatives), 2 eggs instead of 3 (depending on his LBM), Substituting whole grain bread for sourdough, Replacing sugar free drinks with the pepsi (or just water), switch the granola bar and banana time with the beef jerky time (the oats in the granola bar would probably suit him much better for a 1.5 hour conditioning session)

    Well, get a 2nd opinion if you can. Like i said, nutrition isnt my forte'

    Edit: ignore the 2 eggs instead of 3. I think question 5 is geared more toward your answer on #4 so eggs woudnt have anything to do with it

    biceps are 1/3 of your upper arm and triceps make up the other 2/3rds. Most people neglect their triceps in order to work the biceps because its a vanity muscle and they probably just dont understand exercise physiology.

    With both the biceps AND triceps, they each have a long head which crosses the shoulder and elbow, which makes it a little tricky to train sometimes. In all exercises, not just in bi/trieps, to get the most efficient/forceful contraction, you start by lacing the muscle(s) and joint(s) on a full stretch (or as stretched as you can manage. some people just dont have as much ROM as others but its something you can work on in most cases). Then you go through the full ROM with a full squeeze (this is very simplified because each join may require a specific set of instructions
    -To adequately work the long head of the triceps, you need to incorporate OVERHEAD movements (i.e. overhead extensions, french curls, skull crushers ect)
    -When it comes to the biceps, there are a few factors. You already mentioned hammer curls (which target the brachialis muscle. sits under the biceps and pushes them up and out. I do both DB and cable hammer curls). Another thing to remember is the long head of the biceps. Its the "outter" portion of the bicep peak. The bicep muscle itself is divided right down the middle, the long head is the muscle on the outside and the short head is on the inside. The long head is what gives you the peak and is harder to work. To target the peak, you had to do things like preacher curls. Here, i'll just link some videos
