Re: Arm pain

After doing my regimen for many weeks now, I'm still not sure why I'm getting the arm pain. One adjustment I made was to do pushups first before the pull-ups and squats, and that's helped a lot. It's as if either the pull-ups get my arms all tired so by the time I do pushups, they're weak or more li...

Re: Arm pain

Makes sense. I continued with my routine doing stuff slowly, which I think promotes the 'clenching' from start to finish as you said. I'm having little pain right now but tomorrow will be the true test after I sleep. I'll update if anything goes wrong but your rubber band visualization seems to make...

Re: Arm pain

I think I've ignored controlling my descent as well. I did Day 3 today and kept things slow, along with improving my technique from watching some videos (I was doing some things wrong with pullups). I think my pain is less but I'll follow up if not. Thanks a lot of your input--I have a feeling thing...

Re: Maddog's Log

L4, W6, D1 - Today was a little problematic. I got through 21 full rounds with a consistent pace and good form, but on the last few a small twinge at the outside of my right elbow during push-ups turned into a very concerning sudden pain/popping that kept me from doing any more push-ups, even on my...

Arm pain

Hi all, I think it's my tricep that's sore to the touch (area just above my elbow on the back side), and has been since my last workout which was 3 days ago. I've gotten sufficient rest and nutrition since then. I think I might have overexerted myself. Does anyone know which exercise caused this pai...

Re: How often should you rest muscles?

Hey Kevin,

I tried it out and yeah, it does seem better. I'm progressing and my muscles don't feel crappy when I start my workout.

Also, I kinda feel like I've been graced by a celebrity, lol. Great site!

How often should you rest muscles?

Hi,

I've read that you should give your muscles a day to rest, but should you do that even if you 'feel' good enough to complete another simplefit circuit the next day?


Thanks,

One arm stronger than the other

Hey all,

First post, hello everyone. If one arm is stronger than your other, should I try to strengthen the weaker one for pull-ups? I'm afraid that in the long run my weaker arm won't catch up and my stronger one will just get stronger.


Thanks,
k
