yeah if you aren't exercising thats a great idea, plus you can burn some bf too over a weeks time... nothing crazy but better than adding it

This sucks dude. Did you do anything bad to hurt your back?

Today after I finished F/B squats, I started Romanian DLs, even with light weights I felt my lower back hurting, so I stopped after the first set. I foam rolled, the pain went away.

Maybe some light foam rolling (use less body weight) and get one of those cold/hot patches for lower back. I use them for such injuries and they help me a lot.

Pulled muscle. Ice it all damn day for three days and than apply heat. Take ibuprofen, it will heal completely in 6 days.

Another question lol..

I marinated 2.5lbs of chicken breasts with some teriyaki sauce and was wondering how you guesstimate how many calories to add?

Do you just add one to two table spoons towards an 8-10 ounce serving? Can't imagine it will absorb more than a few tablespoons, plus I'm cooking on the Foreman.

Pain was so unbearable too I pretty much couldn't get out of bed for 4-5 days. That was last June. I still have nerve problems in my lower left leg. Just got back in the gym Monday for the first time since last summer (fractured my right heel about a month after the back problems).

Hopefully you just tweaked it or lightly pulled something.
Unfortunately herniated discs rarely "heal". You can minimize pain but it'll likely never go back. Keep stretched out, and go to a chiropractor. It'll give you a world of difference!

Nope! He is nowhere near his natural max potential. Just because he is no longer in the new lifter's gains category doesn't mean that it's time to start cycling. What it means is that now the "real" work begins.

I did last year. Didn't gain much at all from it which seems weird. More discomfort than anything. It may work for you though.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

The only thing I miss are heavy dumbbells. I really don't miss anything else a traditional gym has. I was never a fan of machines so I don't miss them. Maybe the burn from the peck deck every now and then would be nice too I guess.

reason i asked is i recently moved into a place in manhattan that has a gym in the building. it's not fully stocked, but it has about 80% of everything i'd want in a gym. right now, i'm mildly annoyed by what's missing. i'm trying to figure out whether this mild annoyance will eventually turn into major annoyance, which would force me to pay $80-90 a month for an expensive ass nyc gym.
