    Adventure Time with Turkey

    So....I had to start another new journal Here are the pics I just posted in my last journal. Hopefully this one will be full of training and adventure pictures as well!!!! I don't have the time for it like I used to but I will certainly try to put in the effort

    Copying & Pasting my last post from my previous journal:

    So this is where I am right now:





    Not much of a difference from before. I am just maintaining muscle and my muscles have deflated from lack of use so no pump anywhere. With a good, solid couple months of consistent training I'm hoping they will be more juicy We were looking at an oly bench today that's on sale for $200! Might pick it up tomorrow Won't take it out of the box and set it up until we move (cause it's only a few weeks away) but I'm planning on making a pretty sweet gym room and getting a bench and some other fun things!!!!


    Annnnddddd GO!

    I’ve been having some really bad butt pain and it feels like my right butt cheek is completely numb. I can feel the muscle and it seems inflamed or tight and hard. It’s making my whole leg fall asleep!!! I’ve been reading about it and I’m 100% positive the sciatic feeling I’m getting is not coming from my back but my piriformis.

    I sit ALL day at work except for walking/running (I mix it up depending on how I feel. Some days I walk and run intermittently) at lunch for an hour and I read that sitting + running without stretching or warming up first is a common cause. Which totally adds up. Because by the glutes are not firing because they are ‘dead’ all day long…and that strengthening the glutes will help (as well as stretching and foam rolling the glutes/hips/IT bands)

    So I am definitely going to focus more on my butt and do some glute bridges and stuff twice a week. But now I’m wondering should I work legs or not? lol. I was just reading through a few glute activating articles for this condition and every time I squeeze my glutes my legs quiver. So not sure what to do about my leg workout!!! I may try some butt rehab type exercises lightly and see if they help? :S

    Could also be a small tear though, from overuse? From running/walking during the weeks, hiking on the weekends, and lifting + overstretching??? It could be a tendon thing...

    You probably need to stretch out your hamstrings as well.

    If you can do your leg workout tomorrow, do some stretches afterwards.

    Even if you can't do your normal leg workout, I would do bodyweight leg and glute exercises to warm your body up and then do the stretches, bodyweight forward/diagonal lunges, glute bridges, etc. If you have access to a resistance band, then I would try x-band walks, banded glute bridges, and clamshells.
    You can't help the hopeless.

    Yes!! That's what I was thinking! Get the blood flowing and stretch it out + some light mobility/strength work. I feel like doing nothing would be worse than anything!!!!

    I will wait until the evening to do it too, rather than just waking up and lifting, just to ensure I'm properly warmed up first and can spend extra time foam rolling and stretching afterwards!

    We are going to buy our bench today I really miss benching!!!! And other BB movements with a rack. It'll be hard waiting for another 2 weeks to set it up in our new place!

    FightingGenetics sent me a yogavideo with hipopeners that alleviated my piriformis syndrome somewhat (took me a while to really get rid of it) in addition to dryneedling, orthotics, a podomanual therapist (turns out my left foot was the culprit, with the huge increase in hours sitting down when I wrote my thesis), psoas work, and loads of core work and stretches and acupuncture.

    This is a very effective RD exercise and it's nice to see someone doing it.

    P.S. About the butt pain: do you foam roll? If not, start immediately. I use a hard ball to roll the glutes due to the nature of the muscle. For everything else I use my regular foam roller. I bet it'll help alleviate the pain. You can work your legs if the pain subsides.

    Oh my god that's a lot of work! I was sitting on the couch last night after supper for about 15 minutes straight and both of my legs fell asleep. I stood up and walked and jumped up and down and stretched and foam rolled and it took about 10 minutes for the tingling to go away I'm considering going to a massage therapist or something because it's getting bad!

    I'm just wondering at this point....Is it inflamed due to being strained and it's compressing the sciatic nerve, or is it just really tight and compressing the nerve? Does it need ice/heat/rest or just some loosening up...

    I fell in love with it! I didn't know it existed until the other day and I was like "I HAVE to do that!"

    I use a golf ball and a foam roller and Stephen mashes his elbows into nightly it if I'm too lazy to foam roll. I need to do it more though. I'm also going to make the effort to stand more at work while I'm working (but my desk is so low I end up bending over and it's awkward) or getting up and doing sets of backwards legs raises every 5 minutes or something. This chair is brutal

    It's not really pain though, it's numbness and tingling all down my legs. It hurts to touch but it's more of a relieving pain. More of a weak/quivering/tingling/numbing type of feeling...

    As far as I know, piriformis syndrome means a tight, thickened piriformis muscle (limiting internal rotation of the femur as it is an overly tight external rotator, you can check that pretty easily, look online for tests. Here 's one: http://www.ericcressey.com/measuring...ernal-rotation). It pinches on the sciatic nerve, IF it's piriformis syndrome.

    CAn you stand on one foot for 30secs without falling or major corrections?

    1.) You're the Queen of Journals!

    2.) Obliques looking sooooo pretty in that pic.

    3.) Look into strengthening/activating your glute medius to help with the piriformis pain. A few years ago when I pinpointed the issues I was having to having a comparatively weak glute medius, I started doing those very high-box stepups (unweighted) and I feel like they helped A LOT.

    Yup! That ^, and see how your psoas is doing as well.

    High step ups, or heel touched from a low box, but find out where limitations are as well. If needed, shoot me a pm.

    This carrying on from your other journal. Maybe start taking a sammich to work and sacrificing a couple minutes from your lunch break to scarf it down? It would be a good way to get some protien, fat and carbs in if you get quality lunch meat, cheese and some veggies on there. The protein bars might be some of the issue with the tummy pain, those damn alcohol sugars that most are made with can cause gas and stomach pain. I know if I do more than a couple quest bars a week they get me bad.

    Awesome find on the bench! Floor pressing sounds like PITA.
    If this were easy, everyone would walk around ripped.

    I like eating, it helps with the not dying.

    Interesting, thank you I can stand on one foot for minutes on end without wavering, lol!!!! I will check out that link for sure! Must learn everything I can about this! It definitely hurts the more I sit. I've been standing up more regularly and doing lunges behind my desk every 20 minutes or so and it's helping for sure. I'm going to attempt legs tonight, I rested them on the weekend and went for walks and did lots of stretching and foam rolling!

    I have a super high box! I will start doing high step ups and make my glutes stronger for sure. I'm pretty sure they are the cause of all my problems!!! I feel like my hips are stronger and they are taking a beating for it.

    True on the protein bars!!! I have noticed they don't settle well with me. But I have also felt great these past few days and I have eaten two over the weekend, lol! Wondering too if it might have something to do with my posture/how I sit in my chair. It's so weird...I'm fine at home but work days suck for tummy pain! Food choices don't vary much, but I do chew a lot of gum at work and sit in an uncomfortable chair all day. Wondering if it's a combination of things. I feel great at home!!

    Hoy! I've been afflicted with a sinus infection so I didn't get any workouts in after that last one! But I've also been super busy. We are moving next weekend so yesterday we had to show the apartment we are in now. We cleaned and gutted and boxed stuff up all weekend, took the tree down, de-Christmased the place, etc. And got out for a few walks. Cleared out a place to put the bench (I think it will be easier to move if it's constructed since the box it was falling apart) and we are going to put it together this week

    I'm still gonna lift, but for this week only I'm thinking of evening workouts (cause I need the extra sleep) and just one exercise per day, just working up to one heavy set to keep volume down and not stress my body too much. So RDL today, maybe some pull-ups, bench press hopefully in a few days, some OH presses maybe tomorrow, etc. Keep it simple until I'm feeling better. Stephen caught it first! He made me sick, it's his fault! Happy Monday!

    Oh, no, maybe not. Lots of foot movement involuntarily. I also read that having your knees in an outward position places extra stress on the hips (as in wearing high heels?) I wear high heels a lot! And you could very well be right about the feet. When I look down at my feel my knees don't looks like they are quite lined up right. My knees kind of turn in a bit. Having problems with my hips my whole life leads me to believe it's probably because of the alignment of everything!

    Legs!!! Monday, Jan. 11th

    Single Leg BB RDL:
    70x15 (both legs)
    70x10 each leg
    100x5 each
    120x5 each
    135x5 each (PR!)

    High Step-Ups: (using a crappy fold-put chair)
    Bwx10
    35lbs x2 (chair started creaking and freaked me out)

    Pistol Squats (Super deep…butt to the ground)
    x10 ea
    x9 ea
    x8 ea

    Romanian Deadlifts:
    135x17

    Goblet Squats w/weighted backpack:
    25lb backpack + 35lb DBx10
    45lb backpack + 35lb DBx10

    This went waaay better than expected. As soon as I started lifting I felt 10x better and then I figured I’d do an entire leg day but was flopping around for exercises. I didn’t want to unload the BB to make DB’s for lunges and I had no plates left so I was limited! I can’t wait to get the rack set up!!!! Need to buy a few more plates too.

    More lifting later Also going to start on that bench, lol!!!! I feel so much better today! No more pressure in my sinuses My eyes were puffy yesterday it was so bad.

    all this foam roller talk makes me think I need to start looking into getting myself one. My old gym had them there, I dont think my new gym has them

    *back to lurking*
    Hahaha Thanks!!! The butt thing still hurts...it's so crampy! Sitting less and walking and stretching is helping to ease it so hopefully it'll settle down Usually flares up now and again and then goes away eventually.

    Super excited about the bench but I'm hesitant about building it because I'm not sure where we are actually going to be able to fit it, lol. It'll be fine in the new place but the space we were hoping to put it in is not that big.

    Foam rollers are AWESOME. I really like them...I want to buy a few more varieties!!!

    Morning workout today! I sort of ran out of time with this one! I forgot how lifting heavier requires more rest time between sets, lol!!!! Supersetted the last two exercises so I could fit them in.

    Not sure what kind of routine I should be doing. I guess this is fine but supersetting saves on time and I really don’t have longer than 40-45 minutes in the morning so maybe even just do one power exercise per workout and superset the rest. I forgot that's why I was training like that to being with

    There’s a big training room at my work that no one uses unless it’s for a dinner or something and it’s been cleared out now so we can work out in there at lunch time!

    There’s a t.v in there that the girls have been watching workout dvd’s on these past few days but they are on early lunch and I am on late lunch (Booo!) but I did bring my yoga mat so I could go out there and do push-ups and other bodyweight exercises and stretch at lunch if it’s crappy outside I might go out there today and just do some tricep push-ups regular push ups, and abs

    Still didn’t put the bench together! It will most likely take multiple evenings so we’ll start tonight Happy Wednesday!!!!!

    Lots of things you can do!

    There are plenty of remedy-drills for wearing high heels, active foot stuff etc. Shoot me a message, maybe we can figure a few things out. Wearing high heels puts the hip in extension quite a bit, and makes your feet a lot less 'springy', the quad over active and your hips and ankles stiffer. Pigeon toed-ness also can (!) indicate weak external rotators in the hip, weak tibialis posterior (which helps a lot with the arch) or an alignment issue in the feet.
    First time order at iHerb.com? I got this discount code: EKE466. Will give you 10,- off on any order over 40$, 5 on any order under..

    Wow, that's so interesting! Thank you I feel like I don't know enough about anything to make it right! But wearing heels definitely makes it worse and I wear high heels, like, super high heels, lol! I need to buy some flat boots!!!!

    Well, we put the bench together! It’s more like a rack WITH a bench rather than a rack and bench set though :S I guess you get what you pay for. But the last one we bought for that price was sweet! You can’t actually reach the barbell when it’s on the rack because you need to have 5 foot arms.

    The rack is not adjustable It’s a sweet squat rack, but it doesn’t make any sense! I guess I could use the safeties for benching on but they are kind of long and slanted. It’s awkward and I can only do it on an incline. The bench doesn’t actually lie flat.

    Now it’s all put together and I really don’t want to disassemble it and bring it back and try to find a new one. Sigh! But it’s a great squat rack. lol. Super sturdy and the perfect height. I can’t even believe they can get away with selling it like that. The physics just do not make sense! The bench does not fit it at ALL. Terrible bench.

    In other news, we are starting to move on the weekend! Pull day will be tomorrow. I had to wait because my shoulders were brutally sore form the push day I had And I was planning on doing it tonight but I think we are going out for supper Happy Friday

    Ok, after doing a little reading, I think I have an external hip rotation issue. The picture in this link here: http://www.fixflatfeet.com/hip-weakness/looks like my hip/leg structure. Knees inward. Running aggravates it real bad and I always noticed when I'm running, my knees are not lined up with my feet and they look like they are pointing inward. Hmm....!!!!
