I’ve got a great deal of longstanding niggles which easily re-injure, so much so, I took a long time away from weight lifting, thinking I was done.
My plan for my return to the gym which was 10 weeks ago was to get a solid year of physiotherapy (ART), work hard on the prescribed exercises, foam rolling & stretches + progress very slowly with high rep very light weights.
I currently do De Franco’s Agile 8 & Simple 6 every day & also do 40 minutes of Tai Chi every day (which has helped a great deal)
Supplement wise - I think I take all of the joint health supplements haha. Cissus, collagen, glucosamine etc.
I also started eating only organic food, 6 months ago, to stop putting toxins in me.
Re the year of physio - I’ve not started that… Cash emergencies came up, but I’m now in a position to do the year of physio (and afford HGH )
I wondered if HGH was as miraculous for healing & strengthening connective tissue as I hear, or if that’s a myth.
I’m using very light weights & lots of niggles are flaring up & muscles are pulling already. It’s very frustrating! I’ve surprised myself how patient I’ve been with taking it easy.
2ndly & very important - if I did do a long cycle of HGH, how problematic is it re-starting your pituitary to restart natural HGH?
I don’t want to end up with a life long HGH deficiency that’d damage my health.
