    stretching works but not over night

    you need to do it consistantly for a few weeks to get results

    When you say you have mobility issues do you mean you experience pain doing certain motions? Or just can't bend as far as you ought to?

    The first. Im actually pretty flexible in some areas. Straight leg deadlifts have made it where I can nearly put my palms flat on the floor from a standing position. My shoulders are the worst of it

    I spent several months working up to getting under a squat bar. I did a lot of work on them and it helped some but I never got to where I could get my delts rotated that far back without pain.

    Anything can be a gay sex position if you are creative enough.

I do a ton of hunting and I find that getting under low branches and stuff has gotten harder, legs dont want to lift as high as they used to either. Sometimes trip over stuff that seems like I really shouldnt. Anyway, I tried some yoga briefly and Im going to get back into it this time more seriously. Does anyone do anything on a regular basis that they feel has really helped with this?
    Are you a drinker, may sound like a dumb question in regards to your post. But...I have found alcohol sucks for the joints and mobility. When I dont drink I can touch my toes, when I do ( bloat) I can barely wash my ass.

    Chances are if you busting a nut, you're having a good time!

    Sorry, thought is was worth a try. When I dont drink for a week I feel dramatically better. Congrats on the 3 months. Did your weight go down?

    Well, it did but I cant pin a root cause as just "no more alcohol" because my last run was when I crossed the line from functional alcoholic to cannot stop drinking. I went for about 8 days straight because every time I began to sober up the withdrawals would start. I didnt eat much in that time and didnt eat at all for the last three days. Then I couldnt eat much through withdrawals and when I did get "normal" again I got a stomach virus a few days later and couldnt really eat for a few days. I went from like 235 down to 216. I looked very good because I had lost a ton of fat and alcohol water weight but I felt tiny. Im at about 233 right now and holding so much less water than I used to so I have no idea really what Ive gained/lost. Currently I need about 4500 cals a day just to maintain and getting much bigger has been trying to say the least.

    I had bad mobility when I was heavier. got better as I lost weight. my old joints need stretching daily to keep on my path. if I don't stretch real good my workouts suffer and my pain the following day is far worse. I do have a hard time reaching the bar when squatting from my old sketchy shoulders haha...

    Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence!
