Xen started this off last year with this post, it was a good read.
So this is what I learned in 2010 I was kind of busy
you need to respect them,
spending the right amount of time or money or both
to get them diagnosed and healing is worth the effort
tendonitis is mostly cleared up in both biceps and elbows
Neck is well - as good as its likely to get.
while not good is allot better then where it was at.
I have a new chiropractor- seems I always have a new chiropractor,
who actually said that my perennially low bodyfat was holding up some healing
while never in single digit land- staying lean actually 'hurt' my recovery
More on body fat- with just a few pounds of additional body weight of fat
strength levels go up fast.
I had an enforced de-load of 5 months
just body weight training very minimal conditioning
Moving , starting a family, and finally giving broken shit the time it needed.
spent great time with new baby who is already shrimping and little squats
and came back to training feeling fresh and feeling ready to learn
Other Random shit
531 was good but boring as fuck but might be the most sound method for average Joes.
Built like a Badass from DeFranco far more fun.
Inactivity breeds immobility
I really feel move it or loose it more then any year before
while inactivity helped some things heal- it really slowed down lots of stuff
and made me feel stiff and feeble
trap bar jump squats are my new favorite thing.
more direct calf work cleared up some problems in my ankle, knee hip.
getting shots in your elbow sucks ass
getting shots in your neck sucks stank ass
cat scans are shitty
found that my upper body responds better to rep in the 15 to 30 range
last found out I can function without judo/wrestling/BJJ
that I can find pleasure in what training is possible
I might never 'ramp down' being competitive or working hard,
but realized that I did well, that there its ok to have unanswered questions
about you're own personal athletics.
