thanks for the encouragement tony and patricia! i am going to need it, especiallly now(see my last post). goldie, "jump right in" remember, i am not a young buck like you, and here is a total of the injuries i am dealing with.
march-herniated 3 lumbar discs doing squats, 2 of those disks have anular tears(partial ruptures)
june-doing "high" box squats to take pressure of my low back, tore a muscle in my right quad.
august-sever strain of right pec muscle doing a 275lb close grip incline press.
for as long as i can remember: tendonitis left elbow.
ART has helped the thigh, no treatment besides active recovery for the chest injury, ART did NOTHING for my back and elbow. elbow feels a little better latley, but i can do NO tricept extensions, for tricepts, i use close grip partial ROM pressing movements, dips, and LIGHT pushdowns with bands. just one workout with even light tricept extensions or JM presses, and my elbow is back to square one!!!
point is, i cant just "jump-in". i really want to, but i have to be careful, as i have a family to support. louie once told me that westside training can make you or break you...i wonder if it broke me,LOL!
