  1. Last week
  2. This forum looks dead, so I'll add something. I torn my ACL, probably 20 years ago playing rugby. If it wasn't a complete tear, I suspect I finished it off roughly 10 years ago playing squash. Then about 3 years ago, my right knee became unbelievably painful after kneeling on a bed. At the time, I was doing SL5x5 and squatting 255lbs with no regular knee pain. This led to a trip to the doc and an MRI finally diagnosed the full ACL tear and bucket handle meniscus tear. I had surgery to remove the meniscus tear and opted NOT to do ACL tear. My doc said that my knee was doing really well and ACL surgery would lead to a year of recovery. So far I'm opting NOT to do anything about the ACL I also have some lower back issues, nothing major. I think better braising on squats and DL will prevent further injury hear. I'll update this IF something bad happens.

    Cheers guys. Good to be among you again. Started with just the bar (except for deadlift). Let's see how far I go. Have also lost a little BW - standing now at 55 kg. Hoping to touch 60 again soon (hopefully all muscle too hehe).

  10. Hi, It has been quite some time since I fell off the bandwagon. Started again last week with 5x5 (my version). Let's see if I can get back to where I was. Can see quite a few familiar names. Don't know if any of you remember me.....

  14. extremely small homegym

  15. extremely small homegym

    That sounds amazing man.. I understand that you like to live like this. I would do so to... it is sort of a dream but in my country it is to difficult±) Where do you train if i may ask you== EVerytime in another fitness centra or what=
  16. extremely small homegym

    I can pull it with any full size pickup, it's only about 21 feet long Actually a small pickup, like a Ford ranger will pull it, but not up anything steep, it weighs I think 3160 lb from the factory, and My ranger is rated to pull 4000 My van will pull closer to 6500 (light 3/4 ton), or I can use it for a camper if i don't want to pull the TT I actually wanted a Micro camper, but it's hard to live full time in one of those lol I'm just trying to live as cheap and free as i can
  17. extremely small homegym

    wow,, i'd like to live in a travel trailer. But this things are very ucommon in my country. Only gipsy's can ''do'' that or so... But it is great i think, is it easy movable to???
  18. extremely small homegym

    no, had one when I lived in an apartment, now I live in a travel trailer, definitely no room for a home gym unless outside
  19. extremely small homegym

    uhave a setup now to???
  20. extremely small homegym

    Hahaha I live in Texas, summer afternoons sometime 113f, I'd be a sweaty mess untill i acclimated...if i ever did Hell, I might heatstroke
  21. extremely small homegym

    Yeah u'r blessed. All the cool brands around there. We pay ways more for less quality. Outside would be way to warm for me!!! I'm Always sweating like a pig.. But Lucky me have a good ventilator hangin on the wall now:)
  22. extremely small homegym

    If I set up a home gym now, it'd have to be an outside gym, lol but the US does have good access to equipment, that's for sure
  23. extremely small homegym

    thanx men,, no it isn't at least for me. Pretty happy after all how it all worked out.. It is Always sort a gamble if you have so less space. After all i work out very good here in my home. It is a pitty that in Europe it is much more expensive and difficult to find cool fitness-equipment.....
  24. extremely small homegym

    Not a bad setup
  25. extremely small homegym

    This is my extremely small gym.. It is obviously a very very very small ground. But i live on a 60m2 appartment in a city( this is the smallest room.) I can do anything here. Plus i am not distracted anytime by all the bastards around in the gym)) So thats a big pluspunt to me!!! I use the Deadeners for lifting as the people beneath the floor will start crying when i don't so... I will buy more stuff in the future, a Swiss bar and another bar and also more weights, i will hang them on the wall behind the rack.
  26. Breaking 90 Degree In Squat Problem

    Hi for me worked feets wider. I had a to narrow stance. Also bar positioning. Before i did higher bar placement now i place it lower. But on the lower side it also give me more discomfort in my elbow.... So... Yes.. I don't have to problem with front squats in anyway although i use a harness for them. Maybe buy Nike Romaleos? Helped me out also quite anbit
