No posts today, so I thought I'd make one Where do you hurt ? For me it's: Right delt (bursitus) Low back (cronic case) Right side of neck (sometimes it get pulled) Elbows (ache, but now pretty much healed thanks to flexplus) Right Quad (pulled it before while on creatine. Better now) Luckly not all at the same time. Still wouldn't change a thing except maybe lifting smarter when I was younger.

I hurt in my left shoulder. I think it's the begining of a rotator cuff injury coming on. My right hand hurts after lifing due to broken bones in it(boxers injury.........LOL)and I think thats all.Oh! My left elbow hurts when I do skullcrushers.Gota love the game though.

Left heel-plantar faciitis right lateral knee ligament-probably as a result of compensating for heel pain

I don't mean to sound like a pussy, but I am finding myself not wanting to train as heavy as I once did. To be blunt, I just don't like the trauma or the impact that heavy weights have on my body. Jesus, I did a leg workout with a M.D. Friend of mine a few weeks back and we did 405 for three sets of ten (no belts, no wraps, no nothing) and they were deep reps. I thought I was going to die, as I'm a one set kinda wonder. Anyway, we went on to do about fifteen other sets of insane crap for legs and I was so sore I couldn't but hobble for almost four days. I can remember doing a similar workout ten or so years earlier, getting up the next day and going running or doing something else stupid. My, how the body adjusts as we age. Being a pussy isn't what it's cracked up to be. It's fun though. I wouldn't trade it for the world. Later, Pinus Strobus aka the Big Tree

Intelligent training is essential for effective development, to prevent injury, and to maintain results. HGH for 6-12 mos will likely fix soft tissue injuries (connective tissue) that won't heal otherwise for years. Can't do anything for blown joints, though. Unless you have very specific competitive or athletic goals that require you to push your body in directions it does not naturally (with AAS help) want to go, (and those goals become less realistic with advancing age), you want to achieve maximum contractile stress in each muscle group for 30-45 seconds per workout. This usually equates to either a few heavy, very slow reps ranging up to a weight you can handle (barely) for 20-30 reps, possibly broken into smaller sets, but not spaced very far apart (15-60 seconds?). What it does not equate to is overloading yourself with too many sets or too many reps. This is not cardio. This has NOTHING TO DO WITH CARDIO. Don't even think cardio when lifting. Think 15-20 SETS (not 3-set groups) per week. Think training 3-4 days per week. Killing yourself in one session is worthless. You risk injury and all those stimulated muscles will compete for the protein your body can provide and NONE will grow well. You will lose more from injury, scarring, and time off recovering than you could possibly gain from doing a lot more reps or working out more frequently. This is not just advice for us old farts, although it is probably most important to us, with our impaired recovery, even using AAS. And remember that it's easy with some AAS, once you're fairly developed, to push muscle strength higher than tendons and ligaments can tolerate, since they adapt much more slowly, especially as we get older. Which is another way HGH helps. Just my advice. The stronger you are, the less you should train, while maintaining adequate intensity. Feel free to flame this as sissy chickenshit advice. It works for me and many others very well.

Richard, good points. I also believe that periodizing your training can help as well. I've found that going heavy/light/medium etc. works really well in getting through times of joint pain. My periodization normally goes on instinct. For example, when I'm feeling really sore from a heavy workout or just like shit because I've abused my body too much, instead of delaying the workout, I'll go light or do some form of rest/pause. Shaking it up is wonderful. Getting old rocks. I love it. Later, Pinus Strobus aka the Big Tree

i'll be 45 next month and feel really good now, but have had several serious injuries over the last 4 years: a torn tricep tendon in 2000, 2 torn quad tendons in 2002, and a broken ankle in 2002...the repaired quad tendons are still not totally smooth, but the elbow healed fine...guys, don't ignore your elbow pain...i did and the left tricep tendon snapped in the middle of a 325 incline bench set...i agree with RP about training methods and gh for connective tissue...i just returned to it, in part, to help get more more knee function back...train smart...

That is one of the main reasons I'm running GH for a 5 month course. Fix up some nagging connective tissue pain. I am on week 12 of 20 and most everything has cleared up except the one I am most concerned with. That is plantar faciitis of the left foot. But it has improved and hopefully be good to go at the end. Plan on doing another course starting early next summer. I think the stuff is very beneficial to older guys even at low doses.

After running GH for >9mos I found the nerves regenerating in the center of my left foot, which had been injured by badly fitted ski boots about 12 years ago (and seemed to have healed up as much as it ever would). It's not all recovered yet, but seems promising. Most everything else (except very recent minor injuries) has cleared up. I'm beginning to think this is the most amazing stuff. Don't give up, even the plantar fasciitis may clear up. I've almost completely eliminated old fungus infections of the toenails. It's like the GH has them getting healthier and growing faster than the fungus can keep up. Of course, "your experience may vary."

Richard, I agree smart training is essential as we age. I haven't yet reached the point where my muscles are stronger then my tendons, but am curious as to what type of training would increase my tendon's strenth. High rep ?, Low reps ?, isometrics ?, does anyone have a clue ? I have been researching HGH as well, for I have various soft tissue injuries. I hope I'm not out of line asking what brand you use. Genentech has their Nutropin, but I'm sure it's next to impossible to acquire.

The HGH will help with the tendon and ligament stregth.
