Soreness: quads

Condition: Nice warm and dry day. Came in early hoping for a good sled session, but the damn gym locked up the smaller shed with the sleds. so they have basically locked up all their porta-cabins and sheds just for use by club members. But luckily I bought a sled so will use that and then take a rubber weight plate from their gym and use it outside, even though i'm not allowed as they are restricting my use on track equipment.  :ninja:

it was a good session until the quad pain from thursday returned when I was doing my a skips, it gets painful when i apply force to the ground with leg straight with slight knee bend and I can feel it in my quads. the starts were good. sleds locked in shed, which is getting ridiculous that I have bring my own stuff, but if it's unlocked you know I'm using it. couldn't get good runs so thought atleast get 1 run in for 10m and 30m, the quad pain it starts painful and slowly reaches throbbing stage and stays there, don't know if I sprained the quad on thursday or something else. 1 hour in the gym and didn't know what to do so did some core stuff, with lots of rest between as I had to be somewhere at 1:15pm. left the gym 12:45pm.

I love stairs, so much use for training, box jumps increasing the number steps every time till you reach your limit. stair runs.

I right now use it as to increase explosiveness in my sprint start by placing my front leg in a sprint start on the step and as quickly and as powerful as possible explode up using the front leg and reach a certain step.

Soreness: quad was literally throbbing in pain internally and externally

Condition: It was a good day, got to the gym 2 hours before women's session.

Warm up
   ankle mobility
   calf stretch
   seated hamstring stretch
   bench quad stretch
   sitting on the floor single leg hamstring stretch
   single leg glute bridges and double leg
   high knee holds with feet strap @50kg shoe was coming off lol x 10 seconds each leg
   back stretch

Workout
   BSS jumps
      - 1 x 5 each leg @bw
      - 2 x 5 each leg @5kg dumbbells
      Note: have to try minimize using my arms in the jumps, which lightens the load
   
   BSS with front leg elevated
      - 1 x 5 each leg @bw
      - 1 x 3 each leg @12.5kg dumbbells in each hand
      - 2 x 7 each leg @22.5kg dumbbells in each hand

   single leg seated calf raises
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 2 x 10 @60kg

   single leg stiff leg RDL variation - basically stiff leg deadlift but don't rest bar on the floor
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 2 x 7 @60kg
      Note: The quad throbbing pain started here, because of the knee bent and when lowering the bar I can feel it in the lower quads of my right leg and this workout might have worked out the quads after it was killed in the BSS and this just triggered a quad/tendon pain, throbbing, 7-8/10 pain, very painful. the stiff deadlift less painful cos the tension is not maintained at the bottom of the lift I just place it on the floor. but later when my legs feel good when lowering the bar and stronger I can bring it back in.

   front shoulder press elbow facing forward
      - 2 x 5 @17.5kg dumbbells in each hand

   elbow reverse pulls - arm hanging at the side and pushing elbows backwards and lift weight
      - 2 x 10 @17.5kg dumbbells in each hand

      - 2 x 5 @bw : meh

   cable bend overs for core - trying to experiment core workout with cables

It was a good session, the bss jumps felt comfortable and powerful but the reason may be use of the arms, bss felt comfortable too not a lot struggle. deadlift caused major quad pains, the pain wouldn't go away no matter what I did. stiff leg deadlifts feel weird awkward on my lower quad on my left leg, I maintain a slight knee bend.

Edit: measured my wingspan at 71" and my height is at around 5'7-5'8. Long arms.

It was a good session, 22.5kg is the right struggle, left leg slightly weaker then right leg, still have congested chest so I did only 2 sets I don't want to set of chains of coughs and stuff. RDL's more difficult because of the constant time under tension instead of resting the bar on the floor. rusty with the single leg calf raises seated but getting the hang of it. Then was kicked out due to woman's session.

A good first session, 22.5kg is a good weight to start with on the BSS. other lifts were fine.

It was an alright session, the doms were still there and the 10m sprints were good , first one (sled run) was bad and slow but second one was better. but a lot of energy used up in this session that the 30m sprints were not that fast. 50m sprints slow especially the last 20m. Technique still there. Meh.

Warm ups were ok except for the glute bridge, glutes and hamstring too painful to lift and nearly impossible to descend as it was even more painful even with double legs so did 2 reps only. BSS jumps were good no trouble same with elevated bss. rest same. 

EDIT: Also forgot to mention that the blood test confirms that I have gilbert's syndrome. dr said it's nothing serious just continue living your life like normal as yellowness of the eye is normal with someone with this genetic thing. but if yellowness of the eye stays longer than normal then the that specific problem is something else.

Major DOMS, can't walk, sit or anything without my entire lower body paining.
Not looking forward to training through it.

don't, recover instead. then dial it back a bit for your next session.

pc!
It wasn't even a hard session.but will go lighter tomorrow

Soreness: lower legs were shaking after the bss hard to continue, now I can't even contract my glutes, they are dead.
BW: scale not workin

Condition: It was raining and got to the gym at 4pm. Did a get back to work session. It was difficult but it's the start so it's expected.

Warm up
   ankle mobility stretch
   calf stretch
   seated hamstring stretch
   quad stretch on edge of bench
   single leg seated bending over hamstring stretch
   single leg glute bridges
   16kg kettlebell raise (place feet under handle and lift up and hold for 20 seconds) for hips
   back stretch

Treadmill run
   - will prob stop this - felt awkward like my feet was all over the place started running from 0 to 23km/h stayed for 2 seconds then stopped. feet felt awkward running.

Workout
   BSS jump - bss stance descend and then explode up and jump lift knees up and then land in the lower position of the bss and then repeat
      - 3 x 5 @bw

   BSS on raised platform (5 inch) - more stretch and more muscles targetted
      - 1 x 5 each leg @ bw
      - 2 x 7 each leg @20kg dumbbells in each hand - mediocre comfortable but the exhaustion made it hard

   Single leg stiff deadlifts
      - 1 x 5 each leg @20kg
      - 2 x 5 each leg @40kg

   Single leg calf raise on leg press
      - 3 x 10 - (I thought it was 80kg but didn't take the weight of the sled, that's why it was a little heavy but I realized once I started)

   shoulder press dumbbell front and side
      - 2 x 10 each side @8kg dumbbells - tiring

   anti rotations using cables
      - 1 x 4 @15kg
      - 1 x 3 each side @30kg
      - Note: the core work I try to do everyday non workout session really helps with making this easier.

Cool down

It was a good start session, tired, legs shaking because of the BSS but the raised platform will help with the hamstring strength at larger rom. hamstring stretch helps with the single leg deadlift in terms of flexibility.

It was an ok session, obv explosiveness was not there but the strength and base power was there. first run was horrible 10 steps were slipping and then my thumb got caught in my trouser pocket. but the following runs were better. strong and controlled just lacked the elastic and explosiveness. Only had 1 hour before gym closes as it is a weekend it closes early.

After visiting the doctor to get insight into the jaundice thing, the doctor read from the diagnosis from 2009, which I had not received information about till now that I have Gilbert syndrome.

Quote
Gilbert syndrome is a relatively mild condition characterized by periods of elevated levels of a toxic substance called bilirubin in the blood (hyperbilirubinemia). Bilirubin, which has an orange-yellow tint, is produced when red blood cells are broken down. This substance is removed from the body only after it undergoes a chemical reaction in the liver, which converts the toxic form of bilirubin (unconjugated bilirubin) to a nontoxic form called conjugated bilirubin. People with Gilbert syndrome have a buildup of unconjugated bilirubin in their blood (unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia). In affected individuals, bilirubin levels fluctuate and very rarely increase to levels that cause jaundice, which is yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes.

Gilbert syndrome is usually recognized in adolescence. If people with this condition have episodes of hyperbilirubinemia, these episodes are generally mild and typically occur when the body is under stress, for instance because of dehydration, prolonged periods without food (fasting), illness, vigorous exercise, or menstruation. Some people with Gilbert syndrome also experience abdominal discomfort or tiredness.

damn weird :/

where'd you get that diagnosis? you got blood tests etc? get a second opinion eventually.

i guess from that description, try to also make sure you're hydrating properly. if you're not, start forcing yourself to drink glasses of water every few hours - or do like i do, finish two 1.5L bottles every day. makes it easy to know how much you're drinking.

pc!

So around 2008-2009 I had yellowing of the eyes and slight abdominal pains, I went to the doctor, which they originally diagnosed me with jaundice because of the yellowing of the eyes, blood test and yellow urine. They said it was a liver infection later on.

Later on they carried out a ultra sound, which they found that there was nothing wrong with my liver and it was clear. But the symptoms of jaundice was there.

After some time they came to a conclusion and probably told my parents about it, but I was never aware of what was wrong with me.

A few years ago when fasting I had the same yellowing of the eyes quite a bit, because of fasting, when the days were the longest of the year.

Recent I had a stomach infection and went to the doctors in India and they said Jaundice but after some tests said it was mild effects of jaundice and I never did another ultra sound there to confirm as it was already confirmed but also didn't have the money. There I did blood test and urine test.

I went to the doctors here in the UK because of the remaining effects of the stomach infection was there but also explanation of the yellowing of the eyes, which was mild. So the doctor gave the diagnosis they gave in 2009, only that I was unaware of it and this is the first time I am hearing it, but it's good to have an explanation of what it is and why it is happening.

I will get a blood test tomorrow and see what that says.

I get thirsty more quicker than hungry so I will try and drink plenty of water. Also don't want to get self conscious and let it effect my training. What about mixing glucose with water than drinking water on it's own.

Thanks.
I will have to be more careful during training from now on because of Gilbert syndrome.
