    I do hip thrusts during pretty much every meso. Started with barbell and now it's all machine. I think they're equally effective but the machine is just so much more convenient.

    And for any guy that doesn't think hip thrusts are important... 😂

    Guys I am so excited. I worked with my PT and we figured out ways to work around my back injury (we still think it’s a bulging disc/pinched nerve). No more squats but will try goblet squats next time. If it’s a no go, sticking w Bulgarian split squats. No DLs. Hip thrusts! Thrust is a must. No RDLs or lying leg curls. Going to try seated curls. Anyone have any other hamstring exercises?

    No OHP. Sticking w upright rows and lat raises. Any other shoulder exercises?

    Can you leg press, glute ham raise, still leg dumbbell deadlifts, single leg hip thrust?

    Also,.look into bodyweight exercises.

    We are avoiding hip hinge. Ah I haven’t tried leg press or glute ham raise yet but I’ll give it a while!

    Good news! No OHP at all, even DBs with neutral grip? Only other thoughts I had for shoulders were front raises and face pulls.

    yes! I just thought of facepulls and i guess rear delt pulls from the seated row machine. we are just going to leave OHP out for now.....don't want to risk it. It doesn't hurt but we are avoiding loading my spine for now.

    Rant I’m sorry: ARG!! I am getting hit w all the medical issues. Back injury is either pinched nerve, herniated disc, MS, or all three. I have flu-like symptoms so getting tested. I JUST WANT TO TRAIN but I know taking some time off to reset is ok.
