» Training advice needed urgently. (Go to post)27-07-2012 @ 08:04 
Heres a little about myself before i start, My name is Stephen i have been training on and off since i was 16 (im 26 now) but alot of that was cardio as i was in the Army. I have always been intrigued in doing strongman and have recently started to train for strength and have even got my name down for my first comp (currently on reserve).

So to the problem at hand all my lifts were coming along great working on alot of pressing and overhead work but as per usual when things are going to well something has to give and a couple of weeks ago i was in a head on car accident and its kind of knocked me for 6 im having a few problems with my right elbow its still swollen and pressing of any kind is out of the window for now i can train really light on arms and shoulders.

Iv had 2 weeks off from the gym but i have to get back to training before i go nuts so have decided to work my legs and do cardio and abs but i need advice on a routine i was hoping to do legs 3 times a week Mon - Wed - Fri and doing core work and cardio Tue - Thur.

Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

Think iv finally had to admit defeat and realise i need a bit more time to recover, couldnt even make it through the first rep let alone the first set so going to take the rest of this week off to recover and see how things feel Monday.

Fingers crossed any swelling and pain has gone down by then.

Had a very poor training session today my elbow hasnt healed enough to over head press any kind of weight without it causing severe pain, this is what i managed today:

TUESDAY - SHOULDERS - 24/07/2012

MACHINE SHOULDER PRESS - Fail (Cant press without being to painful)

SEATED MACHINE SHOULDER PRESS - 5 X 6: 30kg, 30kg, 30kg, 30kg, 30kg.

SIDE RAISES - 3 X 12: 10kg, 10kg, 10kg.

FRONT RAISES - 3 X 12: 10kg, 10kg, 10kg.

UPRIGHT ROWS - 3 X 12: 40kg, 40kg, 40kg.



After this point morale was to low and the pain was to much.

Im going to re-evaluate my routine and change it round so i can keep training im going to lower the weight and make the reps a lot higher and keep the leg training heavy until my elbow is a lot better.

Thanks mate will put down the weights tomorrow that i use after my chest routine, today was just a gentle session just to see how my elbow would feel.

Done a very light workout to see how pressing would feel on my elbow, still slightly tender but got alot more movement back and alot of the swelling has gone.

Chest session tomorrow and some light cardio.

Yeah best to get it checked early iv ended up leaving mine for 2 years, now im having to deal with it but with it being a lot more severe.
» Ulner Nerve Injury (Go to post)21-07-2012 @ 00:38 
Yeah i keep it light on EZ bar depending how the nerve feels.

Fingers crossed that the injury dont stop me before iv even started my attempt at strongman lol

Good luck with the recovery and with your training and thannks for the advice.

Yeah i got checked for carpel tunnel and had physio on the wrist but because of the nerve when i done the physio on the wrist it would cause the nerve to flair up.

Iv had an MRI done on the wrist but they dont tell you anything until its gone to a radiographer and i had nerve testing done which is no fun at all sending loads of electric shocks through your arm and hands by a woman who i think only spoke a couple words of english and just smiled every time she shocked me lol.

Im hoping to find out in september what course of treatment they are going to take im just a little concerned as iv put my name down for my first comp and im on the reserve list for October.

Do you compete or did you have surgery done and if so what kind of impact has it had on your training also length of recovery before you were more or less back to full training.

I was wondering if anyone has suffered from an ulner nerve injury and if so what kind of treatment did you receive, length of time out of training and if it causes any problems now.

I have the problem with my left wrist its on the out side of my wrist between my hand and the wrist bone, iv also been informed that iv lost about 10 percent rotation.

It makes gripping a flat bar more or less impossible which can be a problem training bi's even using an EZ bar can be painfull more or less like an electric shock through my hand but i dont have this problem hammer curling. Iv also had to change my deadlift grip to both overhand.

Im back at the docs in September and hopefully they can finally give me the full diagnosis and form of treatment required but as expected its been a very long drawn out process.

Sorry for the rant but any information would be greatly appreciated
