Wall climbing or whatever it is called .

A climbing wall is a great workout. Pretty much every muscle gets turned on when doing something like that. Doing intricate moves like that also strengthens the nervous system and overall makes the body "move" better. Another example is swimming. I'd give it a try and see how you like it.

I don't even own a jeep anymore

I used to rock climb back in my army days. We have a place here called Stonehenge that is a three story warehouse with all the walls lined with rock board. I was even looking at my own harness recently.

I was belay certified back in 2001. I think I need a refresher course.

I've never had a place charge for belay training. Down here they just ask and send us off with a grigri instead of an atc.

I too have been looking at harnesses. Amazon has them for $50 or so but I was told REI does packages every once in a while that includes the harness, a chalk bag, an atc and a couple biners or something.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

I pulled an intercostal muscle in the left side of my rib cage and it hurts to do anything. Think my gym time will be limited to the bike. Wish me luck.

You can do it. A solid half hour is all I can manage. I'm sure you can do more.

Did everything but abs and quads last night to see if I would injure myself further and I am good to go with the exception of lat pull downs. Those hurt after the first rep so I stopped.

Gonna be a long road of healing but I should stay on top of it.

Dude! Keep up the great work! Just came across your thread and read the whole thing!! Couple things I noticed:

BCAAs and any individual amino acids should be taken on an empty stomach between meals and/or preworkout. Your protein will compete and interfere with free form amino acid absorption.

3-5g Creatine, 7-10g BCAAs(many times combined w glutamine) with 3 grams arginine in some Simply Apple juice or other natural fruit juice is a great preworkout.

Make sure your taking in some carbs with your post workout shake or you don't fully absorb your protein, and even less will make it to the muscle. The small insulin spike from the carbs dramatically increases protein synthesis in the muscle. Again I like some natural apple juice or cranberry juice mixed w my vanilla shake.

Most experts prefer at least 2:1 carb to protein for hypertrophy. 80gcarb:40gprotein is alot of caloriespost workout (480kcal) for weight loss/toning. So shoot for at least 1:1 unless you decrease your post workout protein to 25g.

My .02 anyway... Carry on and keep up the progress!

I'd listen to him. That sounded really scientific.


As for me, I eat like a horse and I don't know nothing about them bcaas that feller speaks of.

Lol that's the trick to muscle gains as long as you keep that horse feed to good clean sources!!

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are 3 particular essential amino acids our bodies need to acquire from proteins in order to maintain muscle, immune system, and some hormones as well as many other body functions.

Whey protein is naturally very high in BCAAs and it has an overall fast and high protein absorption rating which is why it's preferred for recovery and muscle growth.

Sorry for the detail Nick.

Hopefully in the next year I will be a Registered Dietitian and get to charge for my knowledge! just kidding, I really enjoy helping people understand good nutrition and how important it is for what ever goals you may have. I also had a personal training background previously, although I let my cert expire because I decided that it was not for me.

Thanks for the insight!

I haven't been to the gym since Friday. I have been nursing this pulled muscle and trying to not injure myself further. I went Sunday evening but got sick three minutes into my cardio warmup and left and last night I was suckered into going to the bar at 3 in the afternoon by a few friends and didn't feel like any workout would be beneficial with that much alcohol in my system.

Tonight is the night to get back on track!

First day in a couple months back on the treadmill. I thought I would be able to do a half mile before I was winded but surprised myself by finishing out the mile without stopping or being out of breath. Ten minute mile isn't fast but its something. I may end up at the gym tonight or just take it easy. I hit it really hard last night.
