    they is it GPs always use a 2.5" Green for every cortisone jabs? I had a Green in my shoulder which was fine, but they stuck a 2.5" Green in the side of my foot too?! Felt horrible. Foot still isnt right, so might ask for another shot as its been probably 6 months now. I know youve only allowed so many per year.

    I'm 47 in a couple of months. Mad to think we've all been on forums together since our 20s

    Training most days, thru lockdown I've also done 5k every morning (apart from today as we had the dentist).

    Currently have Hams/Chest/Quads/Pull system I have a A and B session for each, so 4 days of A then 4 days of B. Basically Hams A will be GM and curls, Hams B will be SL and curls, chest A will be flat, chest B will be Inc etc. I take days off as they come and when I need but usually do 5 or 6 days a week. I run it all progressively for 4 cycles (which takes about 6 weeks as I have an 8 day training cycle), each 8 day cycle is bettered the following week using a RIR system. Then deload for a cycle before restarting and amending as I feel necessary.

    Hams A
    Push A
    Quads A
    Pull A
    Hams B
    Push B
    Quads B
    Pull B.... random days off. Usually 1x PW but have been known to get 20 days straight in too

    First cycle will be 3 sets with 3 RIR as a rule, last cycle will have increased to 4 sets to failure. High volume/reps and lower intensity right now. Generally 2 exercises per muscle altho sometimes chuck in a few biceps on chest day and a few metabolite sets for chest on a pull day. Mix of compound and isolates, some myorep and rest pause work.

    I actually did “train” tonight.
    3 sets of squats
    3 sets of db bp
    3 sets Pull ups
    1 set of ohp

    I say “train” cos there was practically nothing on the bar. Took me 10 mins. Just wanted to move through the movements
