I don't need the honorary doctorate It is not that severe but can be at times. I was going by your brief synopsis of your injury.

Severity is a relative term. Some people have a higher pain threshold. If you've been lifting, I suspect you have a higher threshold for pain.

Perhaps. I'm just going by past rib injury experience....painful haha.

Just contacted a Chiropractor, gonna see if my insurance covers it.

I have decided to do all three of my main lifts (squat, deadlift,0 bench) on the same day every 5 days and then do assistance work on the other

days. I did the deadlift the other day so I did squats and bench today. My weights are low because I am in the 1st week of cycle 1 of the 531.

Bench

85x5x1

95x5x1

115x8x1

Squat

95x5x1

115x5x1

135x8x1

Chiropractor appt tomorrow at 10. We'll see if you're right haha.

Never been to one before, not sure what to expect. Fortunately my insurance covers it...but it says 90% after deductible. Which is worthless since my deductible is like $1,600 lol

I have been to several Chiropractors in my life. I believe there are two types. Good and bad. The good one will diagnose you problems and have a plan to

correct them in 1 to 3 visits and tell you to return when if your problem reoccur. He will also tell you if he cannot fix it with his skills.

The bad will diagnose your problems and set you up on a program where you will be coming in for an adjustment a couple times a week for the

rest of your life. No kidding I got hook into one of those plans once. Too much cracking of the back loosen your joint connections and is not good.

Good luck. It is a crap shoot as to which one you find.

Sorry but you couldn't be more wrong. Facts are that you can decide how often you want to go and there is nothing wrong with multiple adjustments, no damage occurs with proper technique. You don't need them daily the rest of your life but consistency heals faster. This case should not need much since he is active but it depends on a few factors besides this. Effectiveness of the doctor and patient compliance are big in treatment. I agree that there are some guys out there that use a cookie cutter treatment plan and I doubt you need this. Simple fact is that your body gets continually stressed and you will be able to tell the difference of what is working and what isn't. I always say, once you know what helps, why not keep using it when you need it.

I've heard his story from multiple people. In fact, my roommate just told me pretty much the same thing.

Yep. It's a story.

It's not an unbelievable story. I can buy it...just like any other profession. I wouldn't doubt similar stories about medical doctors, attorneys, mechanics, contractors...etc.,

There are good ones, and bad ones.

You wouldn't happen to be a chiropractor, would you? ;-)

Warmed up with deadlift, 5 reps at 135, then  1 rep at 225, then went for a new PR. Failed 3 times at 305 but was able to pull 285, 10lbs more than my last PR.

Then 5x5 power cleans at 115

5x10 bent over rows 115

Crazy 8's, 65lbs

20 presses 115

    • Mucked around for years playing every few years. Busted my knee and was told golf was OK so went down to a social comp. First round 118 with (somehow) a birdie on 18.
    • I think about 130, I have good hand eye coordination so improved quite quickly as I was a good Hockey player. 
    • Shot an 80 Saturday. This upcoming Wednesday would make a month since playing last. New job and change in the routine and golf has taken a back seat. I was streaky. Had some really good stretches and a couple mental breaks. Short game wasn’t good which is expected.   opened up double at one and a bogey at 2. No surprise there. 3 i blistered one off the tee and hit my wedge to 6 inches for a tap in. At 4 I blister another and hit another pretty good approach to 6 feet. Tried to Kevin Na the putt since I did think I made it. Stayed out on the high side tho. Still after a 2 putt par at 5 I’m 2 over after that awful start. Heard some really mediocre cursing while I was addressing my tee shot at 6. Was laughable that some guy yelled Jesus Christmas or something like that and I should have backed off. Ended up worm burning a short drive and hybrid layup to awkward yardage led to double at 6 then another double at 8 hurt. Ho hum par at 8 and 9 for a 6 over front: 3 doubles. I usually don’t make doubles. Seldom 3 in 9. Back was nothing spectacular: pars at 10-11. Bogeys at 12-13. Par at 14. 15-16 I was tired and could feel it. Still doesn’t excuse a 3 putt and then a bogey from a tee shot that left me 70 in. Pars at 17-18. There is some positive things to take from that round given the layoff I guess/
    • Day 49: Worked on priority piece, mostly slow rehearsals, and hit 6 balls with 7-iron. Also did short game COVID-19 day 6/7 drills. 
    • Things I learned on my first 18... If there's a group playing behind you and you feel like your rushing because of it, it's better to let them play through.  [After I did that, I landed my next 3 tee shots on the green (3 chances for birdie and 3 chances at par... missed all six shots 🤪). I need to work on my putting and chipping.  This is where I can really lower my score.
