I actually don’t feel beat up in the upper body as I normally would this morning.


#3178

Now that sounds like a good day. Maybe you have found that sweet spot where to work just hard enough to stimulate a response but your body doesn’t get beat up.


#3179

Actually .i Am thinking it is from the additional support provided from the new pad myself.

Yeah … About two solid cycles is my limit. Especially if I have some fairly good sessions during them.


#3190

I have sorta been lying regarding having a abdominal strain. I know It’s worse than that. I am just waiting on my doctor to confirms my suspensions Friday.

Sorry to hear that. Every once in awhile we get a pleasant surprise regarding injury. For example, last year I thought for sure I blew a disc out in my lower back during some trap bar deads. Long story short, after a night of agony I went to the emergency room and found out the muscles had just seized up. A few nights of muscle relaxers and I was fine.
Here’s to hoping it’s less than you think and a speedy recovery.


#3192

Thanks… unfortunately I got confirmation from my Doc and its what I expected.

Well got confirmation this morning… Will need to go under the knife. I assume in a very short amount of time for a repair job on something I have known about for over 5 years. Tear in my upper abdominal wall that became a hernia… which now has decided to say “Hi how are you?”


#3194

Sorry to hear.
Speedy recovery.
