Thread: Maybe I’m just getting old...

    Question Maybe I’m just getting old...

    Seriously though 34yr male, 190lb, 5’9” bf around 20%. I have been powerlifting for a couple years now. I’m not really looking to get crazy cut, just looking to recover from small injuries a little faster without loosing 4 months of training. I’ve had a bad back since my early 20s and I feel it every few months. I’ve spent a lot of time reading about gear and talking about it with my wife. She is fine with me doing what I need to, just nothing crazy.

    I had a conversation with a bro about mk677 and he said he had amazing results rebounding from injuries. I did a little research and it seems like there is a lot of big promises and bad info out there.

    I’m curious, anyone else out there starting to feel their age and have a light cycle or experience with good SARMs that have helped them rebound? I wouldn’t mind gaining mass either, but not a priority. Priority is maintaining/gaining strength. I also have a rocking head of hair and I am scared to death of loosing it, thus my interest in SARMs.

    Also I’m a garage gymer, so I’m a little sheltered. Haha. Basically the homeschoolers of the gear world.

    Any input would be really appreciated.

    Mk 677 & mk 2866(ostarine) should help with your goals

    Age ain't a thing Bro. By constantly challenging yourself with training and diet (and spirituality; you knew that was coming, I am the Buddha) you can remain youthful indefinitely. I'm wondering what triggers the back pain. Have you taken video of your squat and DL to tweak your form? Like BPak says, progressive overload is useless if your form is weak. Unless you are considering competition powerlifting may not be the way to go at this point as you can get better results with less risk of injury in the 10-12 rep range than heavy 1's. Stick with Dylan for your SARMs info and introduce things one at a time in order to assess their effectiveness for you. The foundation is your training and diet, we use gear to push past natural limits and plateaus.

    I have had back pains for 30 years. Just a few months ago I was told to look at my hip flexors and flutes.
    Sounds crazy but I followed som advice of an on line guy and fixed my problem.
    Still have some broken stuff in the lower back but my pain is reduced huge. I was more sway backed because of my imbalance. That has reduced and my posture is also better. I do my ab work differently because of it.
    Sounds crazy but look into it

    Buddha is also on the right track. What I am saying follows and adds to what he is saying. Form is everything! Using the right muscle at the right time is everything.
    I am currently changing a lot of my lifts cause I have been trying to man handle the weight. Now I am pushing and pulling it correctly. Defiantly finding my week spots and trying to fix them to be better balanced.
    Good luck

    There is a lot of truth in this. My back issues stem from serious trauma 12 years ago. I was lucky enough to just end up with a really jacked up L4 L5. I lived 10 years in pain and lost my sense of physical wellness. It came down to two years ago barely being able to get out of bed and I chose to pick up a barebell instead of surgery and see what I could do. Powerlifting has changed my life. I can go 6months sometimes with zero pain. My general well-being is massively elevated from where I was. I have had some serious form issues to work through and have been really lucky to get great coaching from a handful of current world record holders. The worst thing is that I usually hurt my back with little things like picking up a 45 at a weird angle. I generally stay away from 1 rep stuff since I don’t compete and don’t plan too. In so many ways I do feel younger than I did a decade ago (though my 2 year old son is really trying to age me I’ve come to accept my natural limits in some regard but want to push them for recovery if I can, that’s what’s led me here.

    Rally appreciate your thoughts man.

    There is so much truth to this. My back pain comes from trauma 12 years ago. I was lucky enough to just end up with a jacked up L4-L5. I hit a tipping point two years ago when I could Barely get out of bed. Doctor was saying I needed surgery and instead I chose to go a different route and pick up a barebell and see what I could do. Powerlifting has changed my life. I can go 6 months now with zero pain. My mental and physical wellness are miles ahead of anywhere I was in the last decade. In a way I feel much younger than I am. I have had to work through some serious form issues. Pain can cause a lot of imbalance that needs to be slowly corrected. I’ve been super blessed to have befriended a world record holder (he has the same back issue as me) and he has really helped me clean up my form. But it’s always a work in progress. I don’t compete and don’t plan to. I stay away from 1 rep stuff for the most part, but probably should spend a little more time in the ‘body building’ range. I’ve come to accept my limits in some regards, but really want to push them when it comes to recovery.
    Thanks man, I really appreciate your thoughts.

    If you decide to try something to aid you effort and or recovery. Let us know how it works. I for one am interested in the results since I have the same issue.
    Good luck

    For sure I will update. Do you have disc issues? The reason I ask is I have had great results with Dr Stuart McGill’s methods. He has a book, the gift of injury, that is amazing. I also added a reverse hyper to my gym and do it one leg at a time every day. Not sure if that has helped yet, but I’ll let you know as I progress with it.

    I was in similar situation as you about two years ago. I have L5-S1 disk issue from college sports injury. I’ve had 5 injections there with moderate improvement. Was taking tramadol every night to sleep.
    My final remedy was getting on TRT with lose dose nandrolone 100mg a week. I realize this not for everyone but it radically changed my life. I’m virtually pain free with occasional flare up.
    I’m a huge proponent of the therapeutic effects of low dose nandrolone.

    I’m able to lift heavy 4 days a week with cardio and play sports with my kids. That was my goal....
