Need a little help! Preferable opinions with a little substance.
Back ground first reason for advice second.
I am 33 currently around 6’4 200lb 10-11%bf (calipers) I am doing mainly functional or powerlift type movements plus Chins and dips. I used to lift a lot heavier and be a lot bigger 250lb 13%bf 375lb bench 410lbsquat 550deadlift, I did aprox 8 cycles between the age of 19-25. Then stopped all that and discovered life outside the gym. I have been riding national level moto cross for a tuning firm the last 5 years. Just retired from that too (bit on the tall side for that anyway). I want to progress on my lifting and general physical comp and health. Not looking to repeat my lifts from before or becoming huge just fit and healthy. The reason for this post is the following: I have bursitis in my shoulder due to one of my many crashes Had it for 2years). Done a lot of PT which didn’t help much. I take two servings of Lee Labradas joint formula and 10g pharmaceutical epa/dha. Eat clean and good and take a good selections of antioxidants etc. I have four routes available to me.
2/continue like this but will not be able to increase loads in my lifts and it will still be painful
3/ Cortisone injections (F**cking hate that shit as it wrecks my system) + The last specialist advised against it due to the effect is have on tendons.
4/ I thought perhaps/maybe/hopefully a well thought out cycle with some joint friendly components e.g. deca/prim/anavar/test could help. Perhaps getting my strenght up through training could help alleviating the joint and help healing.
Thing is I dont want to do the whole steroid thing again (no real need) so if you guys think this couldnt get sorted permanently through 1 or 2 cycles this route is not going to work for me.
I thank you for reading this and hope to get some response. As you might have guessed my recommendations have been to do the surgery and I am trying to see if there is another way.
