    Overload by the longest of long shots.

    My guy I was also dealing with this. Went to an ortho and he gave me a steroid shot in the elbow and one week later it’s all good. Also gave me exercises like wrist curls and wrist extensions to do. He said that sometimes in bad cases he would also recommend a wrist brace to wear especially while you sleep. Sorry I don’t have a fix for you but find yourself an ortho.

    John I’m going out on a limb and guessing you have a Rep rack since you’re looking for a belt squat attachment. I remember there being some issue with range of motion when they first launched that product but I THINK they fixed it. If you go that route I’d take a minute to research and be sure that I’m correct about it having been fixed. It’s on my gym acquisition list, too actually.

    Thanks Joe, that makes sense now that you say it. I will get back after my appointment.

    Hey Braxton, to add some anecdote to Bryce and Joe’s great advice I will tell you that years ago when I was fighting this same battle I started using Versa Gripps for all of my pulling movements and it seemed to help with wrist pain a lot. Just takes your grip out of movements where you handle a lot of weight.

    Hey Tom, I have the Titan SSB V2 and it’s everything I could really want in a non-adjustable bar. Reasonably priced, too.

    I did that too. Just email support.

    Hey Dave!
    So I ran into the same problem, just with presses. I’ll give you what Bryce suggested for me: use techniques that make the set harder with the existing weight. Slower negatives, pause at the bottom or the top of the moment for a couple second (with a row, I would go eith the top/contracted position), use “stops” during the movement, or use 1-1,5 reps as “1 rep”.
    For a substitute, I would either go with a good machine row, or lie on a low inc. Bench face down and row from there. Or maybe switch to 2 arm db row/bb row. If I may, my personal favorite instead of a db row is one arm, standing row on a plate loaded/hammer strenght machine. If you set it up nicely, the weight will get a slight easier on top contraction, so you can really squeeze the lats.
    Also, a while back, I watched Dorian Yates explain his form/style on rowing, tried to implement it…and it cut my working weights in half 😁 maybe it was just me 😁

    This is perfect advice.

    Take a stim free pump product. Redcon1 Big Noise, Hosstile Bloodshot or something like this.

    If it were me, I would hire an experienced coach for 1-on-1 PED management along with bloodwork. Guessing is a good way to f*** yourself up.

    Bryce is right on as usual. The only other thing I thought of is that if you have changed or added new foods into your diet maybe you have a sensitivity to one of the new foods. Less likely than what Bryce said, though.

    I’m liking Hosstility from Hosstile Supplements and Pre from Raw Nutrition.

    I had an issue with this a few months ago. Lasted about a week and then stopped happening. My BP was fine. Doc said I was just stressed tf out even if I didn’t realize it and told me to try Tai Chi 🤷🏻‍♂️

    If you have a rack and a barbell, you can set it up something like this https://youtu.be/7KXsFvooId0

    Thanks! It had occurred to me that I could maybe rig something up and this should be perfect.

    If it’s a preworkout then the container should have recommended dosage.
