    Is the American Economy Dying?

    Semi-political post. Please, forgive me :raritycry::rainbowlaugh:

    I'd post this on Twitter or Reddit, but:
    1) I don't want endless comments from insane people (cuz Reddit/Twitter :rainbowlaugh: )

    2) I'd rather blog it here as a sort of diary post for myself

    YEEEEEES!!!! MORE AWESOME GENETICS NEWS!!!!!!!

    Consider this blog a sequel to this one.

    I'm FINALLY able to do full squats and deadlifts on both legs through a relatively full range of motion, no inflammation, and very minimal pain. Meaning, I can finally get a gym membership for the first time since 2014!!!!!

    Over 8 fucking years haha.

    YES!!! Awesome Genetics News!

    Okay, how do I explain this haha?

    Raise your arm up towards the sky/ceiling. Like, actually extend it as much as you can. Is it straight? If so, then congrats, it took me over 8 years to do that :rainbowlaugh:

    Bleh, Genetics Are Winning (For Now)

    Since my Elhers-Danlos affects my shoulders most of all, upper body pressing exercises are beyond difficult to progress on. Which is saying something considering my Elhers-Danlos led to a labrum tear in each of my hips lol. Training hard works on everything except pressing, leading to hilarious strength discrepancies. My shoulders, chest and triceps might be 5x weaker than they should be

Bleh, Genetics Are Winning (For Now) · 6:02am September 15th

Since my Elhers-Danlos affects my shoulders most of all, upper body pressing exercises are beyond difficult to progress on. Which is saying something considering my Elhers-Danlos led to a labrum tear in each of my hips lol. Training hard works on everything except pressing, leading to hilarious strength discrepancies. My shoulders, chest and triceps might be 5x weaker than they should be compared to the rest of my body. And that's not an exaggeration haha.

Still, any improvement is a great middle finger to nature haha. Repeating this for the 20th time by now, but my original orthopedic surgeon was clear that I'd never do a push up again, and that even machine pressing exercises were a no-go to me. And considering I way past the point, I'd like to think I can get to my goals... eventually haha. I've pretty much accepted that pressing movements are going to take the longest for me to progress on. I have to think 3 - 5 years on these, which is fine. It's not like I can ever let my genetics win :pinkiecrazy:

Cheers. Good tidings on your path.

Deep, you'll get there. How do I know this? Because you see it as your moral duty to stick your middle finger up to your genetics and you're too stubborn to give up on that. :rainbowlaugh: :derpytongue2: But seriously, keep at it and I have full confidence that you'll end up smashing every single one of your goals. :twilightsmile:

Well, duh. Of course I'm never gonna give up haha.

If it takes me 10 years instead of 3, does it really matter in the long run?
