Goddammit. I thought life was shit before but now i feel even worse. If i cant lift soon i swear i am Going to kill myself.
Anyone got chronic injuries? How do you deal with this shit?
I'm confused...Why can't you go to the gym again?
I've popped my kneecap out of place on two separate occasions (pain so intense I've literally whited out. Not black out, WHITE out).
Both times, I've rested at home for a week, then gone back to the gym. Doc says I have weak tendons or some shit. To this day I have to basically be conscious of how I walk, because if I misstep turn too sharply or something my kneecap will wiggle and it hurts like a bitch.
I can still do all my usual exercises, except leg day is basically biking with moderate resistance, as suggested by my doctor. Also stopped doing deadlifts because I just don't trust my knee enough to support all that weight and the jerking motions.
So why exactly are you being a pussy and staying home losing your gains?
I know that feel OP.

I have shitty wrists
Sometimes, when I'm starting my OHP, my wrists give me shit.
I normally start my OHP like a squat, lift the bar over my head, then do the lift.
How do you guys start your OHP?
Keep rack at same height as squat.
Unrack bar and and hold at neck height or in an approximation of the rack position from a power clean.
Lift bar over head.
