    I saw the new chiropractor for the second time yesterday, and he's given me a lot of relief already. He says he's optimistic now that he can help me considerably. The X-rays he took last week showed more damage than I imagined, but the improvement already has me hopeful. I do think it's probably best that I forget about heavy squatting and deadlifting in the future, so I'm considering alternatives. I was able to get a pretty decent workout in today, and though I got through halting deadlifts, chances are I'll be dropping them, perhaps for reverse hypers.

    I have been catching up on some reading and noticed this. It's a shame but I have noticed several folks on here are having issues lately . I guess we are lucky to be as healthy as we are at our ages. Hopefully between your chiro and some program changes you will feel better soon.

    A quick update... after having to skip Sunday's workout due to the pain, I saw the chiropractor Monday. After that visit, I was feeling considerably better. In addition, yesterday I started the low back rehab program Starr wrote about many years ago. High reps (75 - 100) of good morning and halting deadlifts with just a broomstick to start. I'm already noticing the improvement in my hip and low back, so I'm feeling more optimistic now. Planning to go to the gym tomorrow, for mainly OHP, chins and dips.

    Glad to hear you feeling better.I guess when you have the will we find ways to work around our pain and injuries.

    That's what it really comes down to Jerry, where there's a WILL, there's a WAY!

    I've had three workouts over the last week, after taking the previous two weeks off. It's been tough trying to work around the pain, while still trying to get some decent work in. I've been getting regular adjustments from the chiropractor, while also doing the exercises PT gave me. I also had my thumb x-rayed last week, after falling mid-January. No fractures, but considerable arthritis in two joints. This makes it tough on some of my exercises, but I do what I can. I'm at my mom's for a few days, and worked out in the cold (32 degrees) garage today... out of propane for my heater.

    Back in Vermont now, and despite the hip and back troubles, I had a good workout today. I'm gonna be rotating the rep ranges on some of my exercises for awhile, I think it will be a little easier to handle, and maybe help my progress.

    My friend and I tried a new gym in Burlington today, on the recommendation of her ex, Crunch Fitness. It's not bad... numerous lifting platforms and and racks, and plenty of Olympic sets. Also a large number of benches, machines and cardio equipment. Best of all, it's half the price of the gym I currently go to. I still have a couple months on my current membership, but may switch after that.

    It's been almost two months since I last squatted, and my hip and SI joint is doing much better now, so I decided to give the squats a go today. I seemed to get through them with no aggravation, but I know I still have to be careful.
