I have given up lifting heavy poundages. I have given up, “so called” high risk exercises, such as heavy bench (shoulder risk), dead lifts from the floor, I use a smith and pull from the knees. Squatting heavy poundages.. .. I use more machines and dumbbells, and value cardio more than anything else. My shoulders are fucked, my back can’t take the abuse from deadlifting and squatting heavy and my elbows needs WD40. Any one else have these type of revelations? Honestly, it feels fucking amazing. I’m loving basic pushups, and pull-ups more than ever as well. I don’t feel like a train ran over me in the morning. I have more energy, and feel great. I mean look at Ronnie Coleman, the amount of injuries that happens.. torn biceps, torn Acl, mcl, ripped pecs, torn rotator cuffs, not to mention the crippling back injuries that happens across the globe. Christ. I feel like I discovered gold. I honestly don’t care if I only put 135 on the bar and rep away.. super set with pushups and pull-ups. Damn. I wish I trained like this in the beginning.
