  1. Train with a broken forearm?

    Hi, Two weeks ago I fractured my radius and chipped the end of the ulnar on my dominant arm (left). I have a soft cast on for 6 weeks, that I can remove myself. For the past two weeks, all I have done is the odd bit of mobility and bodyweight squats. I have asked around, some people advise...

  3. Torn Meniscus

    Just read Brett Jones' most recent article about his knee injury and recovery. I recently tore my meniscus for a second time, this time a bucket handle tear, full length tear where the meniscus has flipped over and is now M.I.A. Sounds like it may have been similar for Brett. Because of the...

    Hi all, I've posted on here once before for a form check and it was very helpful. I have recently been trying to graduate to single arm swings with a 24kg bell. I felt like my two-arm swings were going well for a while. In the last week or two I have noticed tennis elbow starting to flare up...
  7. Progression to swings

    On the 12/27/2018 StrongFirst podcast, Dr. McGill explains (41:45-42:06) that not everyone can do swings. He said some people need to "build [a] stiffened foundation first." Have any of you worked with students who you realized had to do other training before starting swings? If so, what...
  8. Is the increase in pull up volume causing my wrist and forearm pain?

    I used to do 10 sets of pull ups a week in the 6-8 reps range over two sessions. I've been doing this for four months up until December 2018, and never had any lingering forearm pain. In the past 5 weeks, I've found myself with more time, and have decided to do 5-7 sets of pull ups everyday (at...

  12. Making a comeback after injury... with restrictions :-(

    I had a disappointing October this year. Had a surgery for a cyst (in my upper middle back) on the 10th. Was asked not to do any lifting for a couple of weeks. I didn't.
