Journey of Joshua
It has been some time since my last training log. I'm hoping that this will give me an opportunity to discuss some lifestyle ideas from a more egocentric perspective, get some feedback and suggestions of improvements.
Publishing Latency - There maybe a lag between the days in question and the publishing. This is for various reasons, including the demands of external commitments. I hope to be able to respond to all posts raised, and I will certainly read them all, however this also is subject to time commitments, and there may also be some lag in responding ( I often like to think about points for some time before responding ).
Work in progress - Just as my physical form is work in progress, so is this journal. Formatting may change. SitRep
The latter part of last year was focused on reforming some movements, drills and lower intensity work, This extended into January to some extent as the gym was a little busy, and some testing I did showed there were still some niggles.
I am now looking at stepping up the intensity, reintroducing some limited pushing work, and moving back towards more micromanagement of my dietary macros. Ailments
Elbow Bursa [Affected <1yr ]: Latter part of last year was dealing with a bursa issue, which was quite painful even out of the gym at rest. I have had to work around it, but many capacity for pressing motions has been lowered significantly
Malpositioned scapular [Affected: c10yr]: Scapular on one side does not sit in its correct position when at rest, causing rounding of that shoulder. I identified this as a contributing factor to my poor pec development. I have been working on fixing this for c3yr through a combination of activation drills, resistance band work, electric stimulation and mindfulness when in the gym.
Sleep problems [ Affected: Life ]: I have had sleep problems since as long as I can remember, and two periods when they got substantially worse. This is an ongoing challenge for me to unravel what is going on, and whilst may seem a little random for a BB forum, and self indulgent, I may muse about sleep issues and physiology from time to time.
Idiopathic Quad Tremors [ Affected: c5yr ]: I have had unusual unilateral tremors in the quad at certain points in the ROM during exercise, and at times outside the gym. I suspect it is a localised neuromuscular issue, but all roads of enquiry have been fruitless. Declaration of interests
