Running is not for me. Messed up my MCL. My brother-in-law is a marathon runner and thinks the reason is due to heal strikes. I had no idea WTF that was until I looked it up and sure enough I could see my feet way ahead of me when I would run. Bad juju for a 240lb fat fuck. Didn't realize there was technique to running.

Not in regards to training or cardio, but I do the elliptical because of the lower impact to the knees and such. I have run plenty in the past though, and didn't have any problems with the broken leg, even as a 255lb fat fuck.

What's killing me these past few years is my lower back, it's constantly at some level of sore, and I haven't done squats or leg sled in a while. It's worse after working around the house all weekend than it ever was after leg day.

Not anymore, heavy squats and deadlifts used to be a staple, but I've stopped them completely as not to do any further damage. I'm stuck doing extra sets of relatively light extensions and curls.

You don't think doing them for reps instead of weight would help?

I found good mornings and straight leg deadlifts helped my lower back pains go away when doing squats and regular deadlifts.

It very well may be an issue of weak supporting muscles, but I've honestly not been wanting to push anything lately with those movements, thinking it's something more permanent. The other side of the coin is that I know what I'm able to do to keep up strength, but then again, what's that worth if my core is being neglected almost completely.

I've spent several decades in one frame of mind (get big and strong), and it's hard to think away for that. Even my dieting plan is in line with that, it's hard to let go, until the body forces it, as apparently it has.

Currently I'm sitting at 237, slowly leaning out and getting more vascular. Still chasing my beginning of year goals. I haven't had the desire to go heavier than 500 on deads, bench is coming along, still far away from my goal by year end. Just been progressing slowly to avoid injury.
