oh man for the last couple of days ive been having to go to the toilet to pee like twice an hour and its really annoying affecting my training anyone know what this could be ? and ive got a doctors appointment later

Could be all sorts of things, your best bet is to ask your doctor, not internet anons. Think about what you’ve been eating/drinking/any changes to diet or supplementation as that can be affect you kidneys and bladder and expect to be asked for blood (to test sugar levels for diabetes is my main thought, but bloods can tell you a lot).

Peeing frequently isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially if you’re staying hydrated, so don’t get too worried.

Strong lifts BTW

#13

got to be honest with myself cant see 250kg deadlift by the end of the month now :confused:


#14

wondered whether it was just my gym or elsewhere that olympic lifters dont really like people that have different training programs for example powerlifting as today i got some really snide comments off some olympic lifters in my gym like powerlifting is pointless and powerlifting is bad compared to weightlifting etc and no disrespect to olympic lifters as i used to be one , but on the plus side i am stronger than all who commented so haha :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

Thought I’d check in. Try not to sound so pessimistic! 250 is yours if you make it yours, consistent effort and specific training are key.
With regard to the comments, perhaps some weightlifters are like that, but as long as you respect their sport I’m sure most will be supportive. Regardless, just ignore any criticism and win.

Good luck.
