RE: Training Logs
Johnnyfive: Why am I prone to injuries? I suppose part of it is genetics but when I was a young kid I used to do some crazy things.... like once I was skiiving off school and some teachers spotted me in a housing estate near the school - they chased me into a broken down house and I jumped out of the second floor window to get away from them. I didn't hurt myself then but i think I did alot of damage to my body doing stuff like that and its caught up with me. I have had ops on both my knees, I think the docs really messed up my left knee as it swells up real fast if I put undue pressure on it.
I have also ripped my left shoulder blade ligaments clean off my neck joint. I don't know how that happened but the specialist has said that the shoulder blade is always rubbing against my body causing me severe spasms and pain. They have said they can't do much with it (but I am sure if I put £10,000 on the table they would fix it the next day). Oh, and I broke my lower back in a car accident a few years ago (not my fault). If I don't warm up correctly I seem to get pain in my right chest, shoulder arm joint.
My left wrist is playing up at the moment - I think there is an abormal growth in it.
I have fine tuned my bodybuilding over the years to the point where I rarely get injuries during training. The real odd thing is once I get 2 - 3 months of solid, steady training under my belt everything clears up.
I wanted to make a real go of my bodybuilding this year so I had six weeks complete rest. I have sorted out my routines, my diet, my whole lifestyle. My current strength levels are pretty weak, especially since I have sort of started from scratch 2 weeks ago but I know from experience my strength and size shoots up quite fast over a period of 8 weeks.
