So blah blah blah it’s lactic acid build up, blah blah blah however…
I notice that my biceps and shoulders never get sore, but just about every where else does. Yet I work both those muscles groups just as hard if not harder than everything else and I still get sore every where else (especially my triceps).

The inside of my elbow’s been hurting whenever i lift (especially biceps), yesterday I had to just shut it down and go home. And my left elbow was starting to hurt as well . I’ve read about golfer’s elbow and think this might be it, it feels like the tendon aching.
Any suggestions on what to do outside of icing the hell out of it. Its been hurting 4 about a month now. I’m going elbow brace and ice. Ne time frame on recovery? Am I the only one this is happening to?

Was military pressing and I went to drop the weight backwards onto the high pins, but my arms are so long it went back over my head and I had to drop it before it tore my arms off. Nothing popped, nothing really hurt that bad at the time, just a tad soreness in both shoulders from overextending, but I had a bit of soreness in my left shoulder after that.
It hasn’t affected my strength or range of motion, doesn’t hurt if if press down, sideways or up, but I felt a deep pain, almost like insane muscle soreness.

Evidently, 15-20% of all males do. I made a similar thread in OT, but I thought I’d post in here because I found that it can decrease testosterone.
I found this study, which says:
In later studies, using microsurgical varicocelectomy techniques, Su et al. (1995) demonstrated a significant (28%) improvement in serum testosterone concentrations (from 319 ± 12 to 409 ± 23 ng/dl) in 53 infertile men with varicocele. Cayan et al. (1999) demonstrated a 48% increase in serum testosterone (5.63 ng/ml to 8.37 ng/ml) and 42% increase in free testosterone (23.1 pg/ml to 32.8 pg/ml) in 78 infertile patients, and Younes (2003) reported a similar significant increase in serum testosterone levels in 48 patients with impotence and infertility. These findings agree with the significant rates of improvement in the present study of 43% for serum testosterone and 72% in free testosterone in 83 infertile men after embolization. The measured increases in both serum and free testosterone after the procedure support the concept that ISV embolization can improve Leydig cell function in men with varicocele. In one contrasting study, Fujisawa et al. (1994) performed high ligation in 25 adolescents with varicocele and noted an improvement in sperm quality in 17 patients but no significant differences in serum testosterone levels.

Henry Rollins – Iron, at least I think thats what you’re talking about.
“Iron and the Soul”
I believe that the definition of definition is reinvention. To not be like you parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. Completely.
When I was young I had no sense of myself. All I was, was a product of all the fear and humiliation I suffered. Fear of my parents. The humiliation of teachers calling me “garbage can” and telling me I’d be mowing lawns for a living. And the very real terror of my fellow students. I was threatened and beaten up for the color of my skin and my size. I was skinny and clumsy, and when others would tease me I didn’t run home crying, wondering why. I knew all too well. I was there to be antagonized. In sports I was laughed at. A spaz. I was pretty good at boxing but only because the rage that filled my every waking moment made me wild and unpredictable. I fought with some strange fury. The other boys thought I was crazy. Continue reading quote needed
I’m wondering if any of you have any ideas on an issue I’ve been having.
When my arms are getting worked out (in this case, on a rowing machine), I sometimes – maybe once every 30 min workout – get an odd shooting pain stemming from my wrist, and travelling slightly up my arm. This happens when I’m pulling the rowing handle towards me. It’s not like a normal muscle pain or ache where you can push through it, because it’s just so random in its occurrence. Also, the pain is – I wouldn’t go as far as to say frightening – but it’s a really unnerving feeling that makes me want to stop immediately.
