Fazc - I love you and your friends man, I just fucking love you like a brother. That thread has now given me hope and the will to rehab it no matter how long it takes.
JB is coming up with a plan that focuses on Bench and will include light squats and leg press and will not include pulls or related lifts for now. I will follow that while I get my second and third opinions. The second opinion will not be coming until April tho. I do have an appt. booked with Chiro on Monday.
In the meantime, I just want to make double sure you and your friends there are suggesting I do some light pulls and SLDL or RDL's. In the past I have preferred RDL's.
My preference is to continue powerlifting of course and I fully trust you and your friends advice. If you also endorse this I will have faith and proceed.
I have been doing dead hangs quite often for quite some time, but I will do more and work some chins in. I also foam roll often with a rumble roller.
I did bookmark this thread and was going to look at it later today, but your post made me look right away this AM
I thank you from the bottom of my big old emotional heart Fazc.
