I followed the PB diet for 2 years whilst continuing with a typical endurance training program for road cycling. My cycling improved significantly mainly as a result of additional weight loss.
I never suffered any injuries previously as a cyclist, however, since excising in a PB way I have suffered 2 injuries. The problem is the heavy lifting parts. I have a permanent sore back from and dead lifting and my shoulder hurts most of the time.
I am 43 years old, 5ft 10" and 144 lbs. I have managed to gain some muscle following the strong lifts program but I feel the risk of injury is too high and I do not feel good with all these aches and pains.
Once my injuries are improved, is there any way I can gain muscle without squatting and dead lifting.
In the meantime, I am stopping lifting and returning to my chronic _ cardio training until my injuries have healed.
