Its been telling me that for two years is the problem.Take a few days off and go walk/bike outside instead
Sounds like your body is subconsciously telling you something
Steroids made it to Reddit front page so there's a bunch of reddit nerds discussing them lol
Anyone who spends 5 days a week in the gym eating with a purpose for 2,3,4 years focused on hypertrophy is a bodybuilder.Can hardly call you a bodybuilder tho
Ok man thank you! I just have too much on my plate with my mom and work. But i will reach out to you asap when its time hopefully a month or two. I agree.
They do video call therapy these days.. you don't have to commit hours of your day. Just have to hop on a call for 45 minutes or whatever instead of shitposting. But yeah, let me know.Ok man thank you! I just have too much on my plate with my mom and work. But i will reach out to you asap when its time hopefully a month or two. I agree.
When I was in college (at c. 175) I used to do standing calf raises off a box with a camber bar working up to over 500.I just don’t do it cause anything over 3 plates I start to feel spine compression
@Patrick Bateman thoughts on standing calf raises? Feels like there’s a lot of unnecessary stress on back and legs doing these versus seatedWhen I was in college (at c. 175) I used to do standing calf raises off a box with a camber bar working up to over 500.
500 straight down on my measly back
I'm sure that had nothing to do with my present back problems
What setup you using for standing?
I literally have a standing calf raise machine and do both legs at the same time, what do you mean setup ?What setup you using for standing?
I usually do one leg at a time off the edge of a raised platform, hold a heavy kettlebell at my side, and stabilize myself with the other arm by grabbing a pole or wall or whatever
I quoted @aloe, not you. I don't know how he was loading them.. machine, barbell on his back, etc. Maybe changing the way he loads them will resolve his pain.I literally have a standing calf raise machine and do both legs at the same time, what do you mean setup ?
Oh my bad im still a retard sometimes when it comes to forums. Took me a week to figure out how to post a pic. My bad.
Listen there are some serious rewards from dirty bulking and holding a certain weight for 2-3 years, thats really how you get big.fwiw, I went on a dreamer bulk as a young teen and walked around as a lard ass for a couple years before cutting down ~85 lbs. My calves have been great ever since. Little tip for you.
Standing calf machine with shoulder pads (no bar). It’s not really my back, but I start to feel it behind my knee at times. Part of me thinks it’s using more body recruitment versus actually focusing on calves (much like I see when people do calves on a leg press machine)
