Multiple muscle pulls
I'm concered about the many muscle pulls i'm experiencing. I've pulled both of my traps and my neck feels like its constantly getting little minor tears. I get these alot when i'm working trap, shouders and tris for some reason. i've tried supplementing potassium to no avail. I eat healthy, warm up and stretch properly and I find myself constantly paranoid during my workouts of the chance of re-pulling something. I'm only 28; this shouldn't be happening at my age. Any ideas what may be causing this?

no.... i finished a cycle of sust 300/anavar in September and am all "geared up" to start the next, consisting of cyp/eq/IGF-1/winny but am very hesitent due to what I discribed. I also pulled a muscle in my right forearm, which you discussed with me in a separate post. That has not fully recovered either, although it is much better. Funny thing is, when i was "on", my forearm was always rock hard and it never hurt. It seems once i came off PCT is when it started huring like hell. What do you think, Doc?

takng anything like clen , or creatine? also have you tried to supplement calcium? it very well may do the trick. i recomend coral calcium., if not it may be your posture, your neck may be in a more fwd flexed position. are you doing military press behind the neck? i t may be how you are training as well, whats your routine like?

i have clen and planned on doing it after PCT on this next cycle but have not done it yet..... no creatine. I supplement the following daily: Multi-V's, ALA, Potassium, flax seed oil, L-Glutamine, and currently on an ECA stack with Yohimbe. i've not supplemented calcuim at all and, in fact, I may be depleting myself of it since i've been avoiding dairy. Could that be it? my posture is great, not a lot of behind the neck presses at all. the routine i switch up from time to time... currently in the gym three/four days per week.. i stay pretty intense but properly warm up/stretch before each workout. I will most definetely get some coral calcium though.

i used to lift in the mornings before work and had similar problems. when i switched to lifting in the evenings after work, i never had a problem again. are muscles are warmer and more relaxed later in the day. if you workout in the mornings try switching to the evenings.

no i do workout in the evenings typically.
Hey Doc... the calcium was the key i believe. i started taking doses of calcuim and doubling up my potassium and started tauring as well. pulls in shoulders and traps completely subsided. still pain in forearm though.
Thanks though bro -
