I read the tendonitis is usually caused due to a muscle in-balance, and to fix it, you have to find out where the inbalance is or whatever. I've tried numerous things, mostly ice & rest, but I start getting a bit active again, like a slow jog or whatever, and immediately after I stop, I can feel it flaring up again.

Start doing front squats. And trust me when I say this, start light. I'm talking ridiculously light. I started squatting a quarter of the weight on front squats that I usually would on back squats. It'll target all your weak spots and help immensely with your posture. By the 4th week you'll start noticing a few changes in your strength distribution when playing sports.

Thanks for both replies. I'll def. look in to both. Never considered either ankle weights or front squats, so ill look in to both and try incorporate them in to some routine. I try to ice a couple times a day, and stretch before a game or workout. Usually stretch the calves/hamstrings and that's it. Prob be a good idea to google some stretches and start doing them every day I guess.

Moving along nicely.

Knocked down 12 chins with +45, and 5 dips with +115. Sprints are progressing as well. It takes a lot to get fatigued.
Did 42 reps of 135 @ 161 lbs earlier with no food. Not full range of motion though lol. Probably half that then.


Road race coming up November.


Right now I remind myself of:

Vernon Davis
Nate Robinson
Ashton Eaton
David Goggins
Michael Jai White
George St. Pierre

and the greatness they were capable of.

WORK THAT ASS. Literally.

Most people have knee problems that are partly due to their inability to fire thei glutes. I suggest doing some glute bridges, bowler squats (basically a one-legged deadlift), and planks with maximum bodily tension (i front properly, you'll feel it even in your quads and glutes). The previous suggestions should also do you good.

Good to see Front Squats getting some recognition. This is my favorite squat (mainly coz it's the only squat I can do hahaha) and it teaches you a lot of good habits needed for pretty much all lifts.

Also be sure to get on some whey protein, drink one shake a day with milk and that should be around 28-40grams of protein alone.

Tuna is good, but I am not sure about adding mayo, kinda adds alll the fats you don't need into it...

Do not exaggerate with tuna. Sure it's high in protein but it also contains a lot of heavy metals. All bigger fish usually contain more heavy metals than smaller fish. So I would pick sardines or similar fish over tuna anyday(I still eat tuna but in smaller quantities)

Been training for 3 years straight now (body building) seeing some good gains.

When I need motivation I always look to Arnold Schwarzenegger (old school body building Arnie)

Just finished up my first 10K. I had just gotten off of work at 7 AM, the race was at 9 AM and I hadn't had anything to eat in about 14 hours but I still felt pretty good up until the finish when I sprinted at the end and felt like I was going to throw up for a second

Ran a Tough Mudder in August, finished in the top 5% and qualified for 'world's toughest mudder'. Not gonna do it, though, don't have the time.
