Sup /fit/, thoughts on tattoos? I'm partially thinking about getting one (it would be fairly simple), but honestly I'm not sure.

Also, share any tattoos if you got em.

By the same token, shouldn't you also want to stuff your face with as much food as possible? This place shits on obese people because they control their urges when it comes to food, but not on """players""" who can't control their urges when it comes to sex. I don't get it.

Is distance or weight more important for farmer walks. I was doing 45lb farmer walks, but I had to stop way more since I was losing grip strength like a college slut does her clothes after a bit of liquor. With 25lbs I was able to do a lap around the track reliably.

>>40509245

Not after a back injury no, I did lose 100lbs though.
If it makes any difference my measurements was a 200m walk (lap around the uni gyms four side by side basketball courts, the gyms on the second floor looking over them)

Anyone else here currently suffering from a /fit/ related injury or just recovered from one? Come in and commisserate.

For me I just recently pulled my back on of all things a 150lb warmup squat. Just suddenly couldn't go any deeper and it's been moderately hurting for a few weeks now. Doctor told me it was minor and would probably recover even without physical therapy in a few weeks with just basic stretches and postures but no lifting allowed. Fuck everything.

I definitely have some sciatic involvement. I think I do actually have a herniated disc, although my case may certainly be more similar to yours. Either way my doctor was fairly dismissive of it having long term effects after he felt me for reactions etc despite me being the only one that ever used the actual term 'herniated disk'.

I had made considerable squat and deadlift gains fast recently and I have actually noticed that my left side is stronger than my right, and the right was initially the part that felt tight but now it is the left that is bugging me after 2 weeks now that the sciatic has kind of faded.

But knowing my luck it probably is a disk and it's going to be a pain in the ass for the next few weeks at least, and since my work is physical no rest for the wicked etc.
>>
>>40506402
Jesus Christ you got fucked up
Sorry man. Hope you manage to recover.
>>
>>40509004

Yeah I had sciatic involvement for a two week stretch before I even knew I had injured anything which makes it hard to tell if it was a minor issue or if was indicative of a longer-issue. Been doing weighted cable crunches which I think has helped.

If you aren't experiencing pain, and dont have loss of sensation or weakness in your limbs you should be alright. Mine would just make my muscles quiver in my right ass cheek and my right thigh. Then it went away as the injury healed.
>>
>>40509214
Unfortunately there's moderate pain in my lower back in the last few days. A lot of that is I think because I'm working and on my feet for 10 hours a day with no way to not be, which is probably not helping things.

Fortunately I'll be off and able to not do that starting Monday, so it'll be rest time.

I think where I'm at is that I started off with something lesser, didn't realize I had it since it was *only* while squatting, then I did like 20 sit ups and it lit my back on fire.
>>
I feel a shoulder injury coming on, taking 5 days rest using biofreeze and rolling it/doing mobility work.

Are people serious about this? I read online it helps strengthen the glutes and allows one to lift more. I don't understand the reasoning though. Help?

Right next to the squat rack, bro. Nobody will think it's weird. The pros do it all the time.

In Greece this lift is very common

>>40508527
It stops your hips from dropping below where your glutes can squeeze and helps you squeeze your glutes on your way up. It only needs to go in like 1.5-2 inches in your ass it's not like a fucking dildo....
>>
>>40508890
If you're worried about it falling out you can get special harnesses that help keep it inside.

Alternatively you can get squat plugs which use an air pump system to inflate, so it starts out small for insertion but expands once inside for retention.
