Lots of walking yesterday around Manhattan. Too much cardio for my liking. Did some backsquats, snatching, cleans, and some accessory lifts at the gym laters. Hip is really bothering me on my backsquat. I have a couple upcoming appointments for some soft tissue work to clean it up. Considering Accupuncture but hate the feeling of it.

I've considered acupuncture for my shoulder and neck, you have to let me know if you do it and if it's effective, Son.

I'm also interested in your feed back about acupuncture. I'm scared of needles!

This was my reward for over indulgence in LA :r

1hr10min on a 4.5 mile course incline and decline grade but nothing extreme. I use to do that when I was 300lbs. I think it's a good start considering I haven't really hit the pavement in almost 4+ years.

The course is basically moon light with the occasional car passing by. The few times there were street lights it was nice to up the pace a bit and not feel too winded.

Everything felt good till after the shower and some stretching, legs are a bit wobbly :r

Good deal, Greg, and it will only get better (hopefully!). :D

It depends. I’ve gotten it done a few times. First time, I was competing and hurt my wrist and forearm. Went to the Dr. and he told me not to do Accupuncture because the injury most likely took place due to high stress environment rather than dysfunction. He was probably right. I was drinking lots of caffeine and I was stressed out. Didn’t take his advice, did the Accupuncture, and it actually made my arm worse. I almost puked during the treatment, had the guy stop in the middle and swore it off.

Next couple times I did it was for my lower back and legs. Only tried it again because my friend had some good results. I was much more relaxed going in and felt really good after with better range of motion.

Why were my experiences different? The way it was explained to me is that since Accupuncture is actual trauma to your body (needle piercing your skin and foreign object to your body) that could affect your response. I do think it is effective but you need to almost prepare for the treatment. Also i think it depends on who is doing it.

Pops I would see if some ART or soft tissue work will help first. Then look to add in Accupuncture.

Re: Pumping Iron with Adriftpanda and Icehog3 II
 
Son, thank you for the insight. I'll look into the other options first.

Not a lot of gas at the gym today after a hockey game with 9 guys vs 14 last night. Trained relatively light for high reps on most sets, could tell the strength would be low right from the get-go. Still trying to make sure my lower back is still progressing...no tweaks today, that's a plus.

Barbell rows x 3 sets
Cable rows x 3 sets
Stiff-legged deadlifts x 3 sets
Pullups x 2 sets

Did you have ask you to do a lot of stuff before you went in for the acupuncture treatment? I just booked for Sunday and I need to collect my morning urine for some reason :confused:, no coffee (f-that) and vitamins the day of and before, no hot shower the morning of and don't brush my teeth (f-that too), among other things.

Do you think all that is hokey or will it actually better the treatment if followed?

I need to work Sunday morning so if I don't have my coffee and brush my teeth I'm going to be pretty grumpy. And big grumpy Greg at the shooting range is not a good thing :r
