This is what has been causing the problem with the sciatic nerve...the MRI will determine if the nerve is being pinched or pressed up against. Looks like the follow up treatment will be a procedure where they stick a needle in there as close as possible to the nerve and inject cortisone. Long term, the doc said it probably is as bad as it's gonna be...shouldn't get worse, so it's more a matter of pain management and calming down the nerve.... I do really well with pain so no biggie. Wants me to stay away form heavy squatting and DL, and "suggested" I take 4 weeks off from training legs......especially after he got a look at my other leg .... I also have a partial tear in my left hamstring...did it last week.... that has my whole leg black and blue and swollen up from the bleeding from the top of the thigh and hamstring down to the ankle. Because of the swelling and associated tightness that leg actually hurts more than the other one! Says it might take another 10 days for all the blood to be reabsorbed. Just another little detour down Bodybuilding Blvd!
    Holy Crap, that sux! Goes without sayin take it easy on that hammie.

    Sorry bout your lower back and your ham Keith! I've had serious lower back L5/S1 problems for many years and have had numerous cortizone injections and it does relieve the pain and inflammation some. My Osteopath has told me NEVER to do squats, leg press, deadlifts, etc again. Same Osteopath that's worked on my knees too. She is a triathlete so she get why we do this to our bodies to an extent but not why we go back to doing the same thing that brought us in there in the first place.

    Bottom line is knock on wood but I'm doing squats again with no serious pain so I think you'll bounce back quickly and it won't derail your plans to get on stage pretty soon!! Hang in there and rest it, let the cortizone shots take affect.....

    Heal fast bro!

    Thanks, Mike.......definitely going to back off on the leg training for the next month. Not real happy about it but I'd be even more pissed if I totally screwed things up by being stubborn and trying to work through it. I know it's what I HAVE to do....in the long run I'll be better off for doing so.

    Thanks, Kevin

    My doc always makes "suggestions" as to training....he says that as a group, we, (athletes), are the most stubborn people he's ever seen, but he too, understands that's a big part of why we succeed. He's always been really honest with me about when I can keep going or when I need to back off. I think when he wants me to back off for 4 weeks he tells me 6, cause he knows I will be back "ahead of schedule" LOL! I'll give it a little rest and be hitting the legs hard again soon....like you said I don't plan on letting this interfere with any competition plans. Besides, if taking a little time off from leg training had anything to do with the way your legs are looking now, I'd be happy with half the results!!

    This just keeps getting better!! Went back to Ortho yesterday to go over the MRI results and found out I have 3 ruptured discs down there too!! WTF!!! Stress fracture, Spondyalosis?, 3 ruptured discs, and a touch of arthritis...other than that everything is just fine!
    He was really surprised that I was dealing with things so well...told him that I was always able to deal with pain...his reply was "apparently"
    Not even going to do the cortisone thing now....Good news was he said that if am dealing with all of this so well, even though he can't see how, then just keep doing what I have been in the gym...I am still having some of my best ever training sessions. He still advised me to stay away ffrm training legs for at least 3 more weeks...more because of the hammie tear than anything, and he said he'd still like me to stay away from squats and deads when I start hitting legs again. Said be careful and he'll see me in two more weeks to see how things are going.
    In all honesty, no matter what he said, nothing was going to keep me out of the gym and training to compete. I am sure evryone here can relate to that mindset.

    Keith really sorry to hear about MRI results...that sucks! You must have a really high tolerance for pain!! You're right on the cortizone shot if you can deal with the pain without it then not much point in getting it because it doesn't fix your injuries just reduces the pain and inflamation. I would say let your pain be your judge as to when you can start doing legs again but in your case?? Pain is not a deterent! Hope you begin to heal soon and I'm sure you're gonna still be doing all other bodyparts so you can use this time to blast them!!

    Can totally relate Keith. Stay to what you know about your body. We know our bodies a hella of lot more than the Docs do. Just train smart. You know what to do. Train around the pains. Find what works without hurting the ham.
    Stimulate not annilate. I have to remind myself of this everyday.

    I can't squat heavy anymore, sure I guess it would be heavy to the average guy but my squat weights are irrevelevant anymore. We just make sure we blast our wheels from all angles and be creative!! I've learned from Steve (MacTech) that unilateral quad work can induce serious development, been doing more and more of single leg presses, extensions! The single leg leg presses are especially important for me because I was doing Leg presses last September when I BLEW and my CNS out because I was bringing down so deep it ruptured my disc. Now I do them unilaterally and it doesn't strain my lower back at all!

    Thanks, Kevin..........it is ironic that I am having such good upper body sessions with all this back and leg stuff going on. Like you said...I'll just blast the hell of what I can train!

    Well said Mike....that's another advantage we ( masters) have in this game. The years have taught us how to get around just about anything that comes our way.

    That's one hell of a workout Keith. Lot's of volume.

    Your legs aren't going to fade away in a couple of weeks, in fact, you may end up with more gains.

    I'm hoping that's the way it works out...but it's hard as hell to stay out of the gym on leg day. A couple of more weeks .......

    Nice! I really like the one arm curls at the end, really flushes ever bit of blood left into the muscle and you can twist the handles to hit all of the different areas.

    Wow Keith! Just got caught up with your journal. Sorry to hear about all the problems! I know you will overcome because thats the kinda stuff you're made of! You have been a tremendous inspiration to me over the years! You keep a great attitude no matter what comes your way.

    Mike,
    That has actually become one of my favorite biceps exercises. Totally flushes the bis...great finishing movement on my regular biceps day as well.

    Thanks, Joel
    That's what life is all about isn't it? Besides...like I have said before...I look at my son in that wheelchair and quickly realize I don't have a DAMN thing to ever complain about compared to what he endures every day.

    Keith,
    Looks like your weights are increasing in your workouts and your bodyweight now at 194. You're about five foot seven right? You shooting for middleweights when you get back on stage?

    Keep up the great workouts and try not to worry about your quads I've been in your shoes last fall. Whatever size you lose it will be minimal and they will come back bigger and stronger once you heal.

    Kevin.......5"7" is right. Yeah...I'll be going in as a middleweight...I'll let my weight creep up a bit more as long as I am staying pretty tight...think I could get to 205, and still be tight.

    Hearing from you about your experience in having to back off legs for a little bit makes it easier for me to deal with. THX

    Hey guys,
    Been really busy the last couple of days...........end of school year, birthday on Monday, and some other things that just eat up the time. Finished a great week of training on Friday and am excited about hitting legs for the first time in 4 weeks this coming Saturday. Had a growth ( basal cell....my fourth one in 10 years...just another part of the game) removed from my right lower biceps yesterday morning...not a big deal...only 6 stitches. Anyway it stated to ooze blood yesterday while training...finally managed to stick enough band aids on there to stop it...and none of the stitches popped so that was a good thing! Should have seen the funny looks while the blood was running down my arm across my neck during pulldowns....my brother heard some lady nearby say "all those freakin bodybuilders are crazy" AMEN!! LOL!!!!

Had a growth ( basal cell....my fourth one in 10 years...just another part of the game) removed from my right lower biceps yesterday morning...not a big deal...only 6 stitches. Anyway it stated to ooze blood yesterday while training...finally managed to stick enough band aids on there to stop it...and none of the stitches popped so that was a good thing! Should have seen the funny looks while the blood was running down my arm across my neck during pulldowns....my brother heard some lady nearby say "all those freakin bodybuilders are crazy" AMEN!! LOL!!!!

    Thanks,Rick.........I have tried lower volume, but it didn't work for me.........high volume training just seems to be what my body thrives on. I think my body and mind just became conditioned to it years ago when I started out with Johnny D

    Great to hear Keith. Getting bigger and tighter now. Now seems like you're in the groove. Keep it going bro! Train those quads smart tomorrow.
