sore a$$

Postby bisqeet » July 20th, 2015, 3:29 am

Hi,

need another couple of ks to finish my first million on a club machine, but have decided to buy my own model D (with a PM5) for home use, as the club will be becoming non available in the newar future.
Quite addicted to the workouts..

uptill now I have used a towel as padding, which eleviates the pain, but moves a bit.
I spotted this in amazon.

http://www.skwoosh.com/product/M3204.html

it seems a bit pricey (~€48) , but (i know, but you have to like the pun) pain is a good motivator in giving out money.

Anyone have hands on (or butts on) experiences or alternative reccomendations, thanks!

The best thing is building glutes, build more muscle and the soreness will go away. Everything else is ignoring the real problem.

Check this out, but even more expensive: https://www.facebook.com/pages/CitiusRe ... 78?fref=ts.
I don´t have any experience with either models though. I am using the pad from c2 as well as special sport shorts with paddings and that works out well.

Bubble wrap- it's cheap, comes in many different configurations to try and it's easy to swap in or out on the fly.....C2JonW

I agree. I prefer to use wrap with the larger one inch bubbles. I fold a 24 X 24 inch sheet twice, making a 12 x 12 pad. I close the open ends with duct tape. It's an inexpensive pad which lasts a surprisingly long time. I make several of these at one time so when one starts to lose its cushioning (which in time it will), I have another one to replace it.

You can also use a pad made of one inch thick medium density foam rubber, another cheap solution.

Erging longer distances will not build glutes.

What you now say it like saying, I don,t want to become a bodybuilder, what woman do when they lift a weight.

Nomatter what you do, you will never get a kard. Ass.

Ergers should work the muscle they don,t use.

Especially pectorals and triceps and push-ups are effective for those. I can't think of any others but I am sure that there must be some. Do you have any suggestions, Henry? I am guessing that the trapsius and deltoids could use extra work, but I am not much up on anatomy.

Yes bob, push work, which will work the chest, shoulders and triceps, but also like I said, the glutes, only sprinting on the erg will work those, since most ergers do that, you should work them.

some people can't do "whatever" that would give them more muscular glutes. Some infirmity or something prevents them from squatting, sprinting, lunging or whatever. This may be temporary or permanent. I don't know their issue or level of pain or tolerance so to those people, after exhausting the usual suggested activities, I'd suggest the following:
-bubble wrap as mentioned. ( never thought of that myself- good idea )
-those 10 buck inflatable rubber ankle/stability disc- don't pump it up though as it would raise you up too much. unless you want that. and don't sit on the plug.
- those interlocking children's washable colorful matts. you get 4 of them for 9.99 at department stores. Cut them to suit you.
- cut up foam pads.
Maybe at some future point, they can get better so that they can do the other stuff. and then they may get rid of the cushion.

I am certainly among the 5/10% of ergers with the most injurees and things I can,t do. The point is don,t look at what you can,t do, but what you can.

Re sore Ass. Sitting still on the couch is a very good remedy, gives a nice thick layerbof softness under a bony ass. :wink:
