Been taking it easy lately and spent the last week at home on the treadmill instead of going to the gym and hitting weights. The intercostal muscle is healing slowly and sometimes it feels like broken ribs it hurts so badly. Tonight I hit the leg press and got another 45# plate on to hit 540 overall. I just want to break 700 by the end of the year. I think I'll make it at this rate. I've been eating like crap and shot up to 235 when I weigh myself so cutting the oatmeal and going back to strawberry smoothies for breakfast. I'm gonna get serious about this again since I'm not making any headway.

Stayed at home Monday and ran 5k on the treadmill. I was shooting for a mile and just kept going. Last night I walked into the gym and walked back out to grab something from the jeep. I found myself at the bar next door doing some liver dead lifts.

Best gym night in a while.

Good on your for going more than a mile. Especially because it's such high impact. My ankle swells like a ballon, I can only imagine how crappy yours just be.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

In the middle of irrigating and I decided to hit the free weights. At 0100. I like the option of a 24 hour gym.

Did you pull that muscle during leg presses? Lots of people experience a pop/crack doing huge leg presses. What happened is they pulled a rib out of an costal cartilage socket. Usually in the lower ribs. Usually on the left. Usually not a muscle at all, lots of pain, especially when coughing or sneezing, and it takes several weeks to heal. I have gathered that this injury is far more common with leg presses than barbell squats, too.

Yep. Incline leg press. It smarts a little. I moved the pivot down a little more so its more of a vertical press similar to a squat than a 90* press to continue. Any more info on this injury?

Changing the angle of the back rest should make it less likely for this to happen. People have reported it happening during other exercises, but leg presses are mentioned frequently. Happened to my father a long time ago. He was doing leg presses, too. He described it as a "pop!" and being rather painful. That's about all I know though. You can google for "leg press rib injury." Googling for "squat rib injury" still turns up lots of people complaining about getting injured doing leg presses. I checked with my little brother, who is presently doing classes and clinicals on his way to being a DPT. Said he's learning about this subject right now, as a matter of fact. Look up "subluxated rib." Not quite the same as a "dislocated rib," which is more severe.

It was Dr. Google that diagnosed me with the intercostal muscle pull. It was a close guess but I thought it was a Lyle more than just a pulled muscle. Oh well, its healing nicely and I'm gonna try lat pull downs again to see if its fully healed.

Running is helping drop some of the fat but I think I'm losing a bit of muscle mass as well. I'm officially in the best shape of my life as a civilian and I feel great. However I need to get my diet back on track after this weekend. I've been drinking way too much for my liking.

There's always Monday to start over.

Branched chain amino acids during your workout are anti-catabolic and will decrease muscle losses during extended cardio and dieting. They are anabolic when weightlifting. Win-win

Cardio decreases gains. I read it on the internet once.

What he said.

Where do you get those branches to connect your amino acids?
