How about I just call you while I'm there and you can feel kinda jealous since I'm at a metal show and you're not? Even though there's no Static X or Rammstein, it's still metal!

Left wrist is fucked....hurts just to type this.

From the cleans yesterday where you kept training after you hurt it?

Jerk off w/ the other hand...kinda sucks, but still...if you gotta do it, you'll find a way.
I still do the same shit though man...feel a little pain somewhere while you're training and just keep going, then the next day you can't move. Think I did that this morning while I was squatting. I can already hardly turn my head.

yeah i guess the pushing through this kind of pain makes us men. love that feeling when the neck hurts from heavy squats.
think i know the cause of this pain. i wrapped my wrist too high and when i snapped my wrist back for the clean i basically jammed my wrist.
06-16-2011, 03:48 PM #2124
Where in your wrist is the pain? When I did push presses the other day, my wrist started hurting on the top at the base of my hand basically right in the middle, where the bones of your forearm attach.
06-16-2011, 04:11 PM #2125
pinky side right on the bone you see protruding from the wrist...cleans always make my wrists hurt. push presses are a close second for that.
06-16-2011, 04:19 PM #2126
Oh yeah I've had that pain before...mainly get it when I curl heavy or do super heavy forearm work or bar end holds.
06-16-2011, 04:56 PM #2127
yeah curls bother me there too

06-20-2011, 04:10 PM #2134
Yeah...505! My goal was 500, but it was just easier to load 505 on there. I think 515 was attainable today, but I was very satisfied with 505. I was all smiles after that!

LOL You must've seen J's fb status...hey man, I can't knock Steve for that. He is crazy about J and it's so obvious they're perfect for each other.
06-21-2011, 03:53 PM #2150
i did and i know they are...but a pink rose. and Steve was the one instigating the gay jokes...oh he is lucky he removed his FB and doesn't post here anymore.
06-21-2011, 03:54 PM #2151
Speaking of Steve, I didn't punch him in the bag like you asked me to. Instead, I just told him you wanted me to. It was much less painful for him...he actually laughed instead of doubling over in pain.
06-21-2011, 03:56 PM #2152
nice....i miss that fucker, not in a gay way.
06-21-2011, 03:57 PM #2153
Yeah...everyone has been asking about him. It'd be nice if he decided to come back.
06-21-2011, 03:59 PM #2154
