    I am stiff in the low back and hips when I wake up. Luckily after I walk around a few minutes it clears up.
    I've been using lighter weights and trying to build back slowly while maintaining my BW. You still are doing a great job in your training 👏

    Well that's kind of you Jerry.

    But me getting up after a sit is like an old time 3 master getting underway. Shoulders, hips, muscles all tight and sore. Seems to be gradually easing, but today's workout was spastic again.

    I hope things get better. A few times over the years when I was sick I did get the chills, no matter how many blankets I had I couldn't get warm. Are you taking any meds? I've been taking ibuprofen and acetametafin for the last 2 days and today I'm just about normal. Do you have any access to Ivermectin, they say it is an anti inflammatory. Hope things ease up.

    Thank you so much Jerry.
    I don't take any medications, but with this debilitating joint and muscle pain, i have been taking aspirin, which is anti -inflamatory.
    Things just not getting better. I'm booked in for testing next Monday.

    Thurs 14-9-2023.

    Again joint and muscle pain. Hard to get around.

    At gym, pathetic warmups.

    squat (30 k) 10. (40 k) 10.
    seated calf (44.75 k) 17. -- doesn't seem to be affected.
    ab crunch (95 k) 18. (86 k) 12.
    and that was it.

    I hope it passes. My Mom was a big believer in Bayer aspirin. I started feeling sick Wednesday morning, so did my GF. She took a covid test, was positive, mine negative. I felt worse today took test and it was positive. Feels like a bad head cold along with the chills. Good luck with the tests

    Hi Jerry, sounds like we are both falling to pieces.
    Looks like my target improvements this year aren't gunna happen. Well, have to put myself back together, and see what can be done. At the moment, massive pain in both shoulders, and legs that hurt just getting myself out of a chair, and getting around like an old man.

    Today did seated calf, which don't hurt, and crunch machine, which hurts but i can do it, and squats rather like an old grandma.

    seated calf (44.75 k) 18. (42.25) 13 peak contraction.
    ab crunch (95 k) 19. (86 k) 13.
    squat. (20 k) 10. (30 k) 10. (40 k) 10.

    31 minutes.

    Went to the doc i last saw 9 years ago, to get the physical to drive at my age.
    He was surprised i had no doctors visit since this time. My blood pressure was exactly the same as back then.
    He checked my shoulders, and said they need to be checked first, and wrote a referral for x-rays and and ultra scan.
    Told me to take panadol osteo , 2 tablets 3 times a day, which he said were safe and helpful.
    I can get in to have the scans done on 9/10/2023.
