MN5s muscle maintaining musings....

    @mn5 getting older is a motherfucker. I currently have something called Wry Neck (and i wish it was just a shit NZ beer) caused by sleeping funny! WTF? I have had to change how i sleep, and can't move my head properly because one of my traps is tight as a motherfucker. Swimming is fun right now.

    Fuck getting older.

    Ha, shit beer. I like what you did there.

    Just read up on some warm ups to do before rope climbs, apparently they are very tough on the CNS.

    Pilates helps too but I've had a case of CBF in the last week.



  • Hopefully the missus hasn't implemented her own CBF status due to you missing pilates!!

    oh and @mariner4life that is quality banter bro.

    It's always an option on these cold nights bro 😉



  • Yeah bro science isn't too far off the mark. Have you had a sudden increase in load (not from the missing implementing the CBF stuff). As in gone from not doing a lot of a particular exercise to doing a lot.

    Tendons like load but don't like overload eg significant increases in weight, changes in grip techniques, or significant increases in frequency of exercises. Commonly called tennis elbow because they will get it after changing grip or massively ramping up training.

    Thing is tendons don't like deload either which is usually peoples go to. They decide to take a week off (in that time tendon gets no better and starts to weaken) go back and its still sore then rest another couple of weeks again no change. Then they either have a bigger rest or just try push through it. Result is always the same they turn up to physio after 2-3 months.

    Google Lateral Episcondylitis and tell me if thats where you are feeling your pain?

    A little bit higher to be honest Doc.

    So you reckon stretching thoroughly beforehand will help then?

    I've changed from chins to doing rope climbing so probably more intense, I think that might be a potential issue.



  • Im pretty meh to stretching.

    What are the exercises or day to day things you notice it with?

    How long does the pain stay around? Are you controlling yourself on the way down or just sliding? Do you have any general fatigue for the following days (like whole body kind of stuff). Diagnosed a chick once who did crazy amount of diamond pushups and slow lower eccentric pullups one day. I treated her foot. Rung her the next day she said she was fatigued etc etc asked if the acupuncture would have caused that...

    I said no but lets try a long shot go ask your doctor to test you for Rhabdomyolysis. Doctor laughed her away but gave her a referral for the tests. Rung back 4 hours later asked her to rush to hospital. Was in there for the next 4-6 weeks. Kidney and liver function was about 1000x normal.

    unlikely but worth clearing.

    Any tingling pins and needles numbness (not the type of numbness I currently feel when watching the warriors).

    Neck and shoulder movement full?

    Bloody hell what a terrifying post!

    I try and control myself on the way down but sometimes this depends on the level of fatigue.

    Rest of the body feels ok. Managed to persuade the other half to rub the arms last night and that worked wonders.

    Probably just old age then. If pain persists go see a physio (and say you injured it at a very specific point in time so ACC jump on board).

    Unfortunately Aussie aren't on ACC so just PM me your address to send my invoice.

    On it's way.

    Reformer session with the mrs this avo. Range of motion has improved on the AB exercises. Sweet!



  • Have added one armed push ups into the routine for ultimate wankness. I'm enjoying them and once you get the balance spot on they're not too bad.
