Just re-read a bit of the power-building book and yeeaaaah, I probably don't need that advanced stuff yet. Though I am tempted to move to the push/pull setup.

What treatment are you having for your tendonitis? Where is it?

About 7 years ago I managed to give myself ulnar nerve entrapment doing a shitload of dips (crossfit). Since then, every year I get tendonitis in my elbows. And it's getting worse and worse so now even paracetemol and ibuprofen dont stop it, which isnt great considering my job.

So im seeing the doctor a week on monday.

Im also guna ask if he can do my bloodwork. Interested to know my cholesterol and T levels.

I would say seeing a doctor is a waste of time for tendonitis, you need to manage it through physiotherapy. All doctors want to do is give you pills and tell you to rest. There are plenty of exercise you can do to help with elbow tendonitis, you just have to be willing to put in the time and effort. I say this from experience after getting tendonitis in my shoulders, elbows and knee in the last 2 years.

Anyway, I hope you get it sorted soon, I know what a bastard it can be.

Its just one of those things that comes into my life for a week or two and then fucks off again for a year. Cocodamol definitely helped yesterday. Felt like i was floating while digging ha..

What kinda physio did you have to do. That sounds pretty rough. I sometimes wonder if my elbow tendonitis is linked to shoulders / neck issues.

Thanks man.

Most of the time the area where you experience the pain isn't what's causing the problem. Your elbow pain could definitely be caused by shoulder/neck/upper back issues.

Check Youtube for some physio exercises if you can't see someone, but I'd definitely recommend seeing a physio if you can, they are very good at spotting issues that are less obvious.

If you don't have a foam roller, get one! Spend at least 15-20 minutes a day rolling your legs, glutes and back.

Squat 100kg - 5 5 5
CGBP 60kg - 5 5 12

Shit terrible reps in the first squat set. I've had another week out and maybe that's what's done it.. maybe its from all the eating and drinking this past weekend in London.. all in all was pretty cruddy and felt out of wack.

Opted to go lighter on bench too.

Been looking at my log. It looks like I've gone no where. Got stronger, got weaker, repeat.

Should focus on positives though I guess. 12 reps on the bench is pretty good considering my fatigue

Smacked my shin badly on something like 2 weeks ago and it still hurts deadlifting, as occasionally I graze it.

Dead 110kg - 11? 12?
Chins - 10, 5, 4, 4, 4
Curls 20kg - 10, 10, 10, 10, 10

Happy with the deadlift reps considering..
Chins were weak shit. I expect better next time. I'll also rest more between sets.
Curls were a good pump. Go heavier next time.

I may go with Wendlers suggestion and not time rests. Just go on feel, rest enough to get at it again but not too much to go cold. It'll probs average 3-10 mins on bug lifts, and less than 3 on smaller stuff.
