This is more so an injury question & if anyone has experience with it...

So I have flat feet, and that puts a more than normal amount of stress on the Plantar Calcaneonavicular Ligament. It's been aggravated for about a month or two and I feel it hurting the morning after I run (2-3 miles) or especially the day after I jump rope (20-30 minutes).

I'm mainly concerned because I go to Marine Corps boot camp on December 9th (a little over a month away). I want to know my treatment options now to get it back to normal (or close to it). I'm in excellent physical shape right now so I'm not concerned about that, I just don't want to partially tear or fully tear that ligament while in basic.

Any treatment options? I stay off of it as much as possible (no running, body weight lower body exercises, etc). Ice is my friend and I do an ice bath for 10 mins and then stick the foot in the hot tub for 10 mins for probably 2-3 rounds.

My Dad said something about a cortizone shot...?

Opinions please?

Hey guys wondering if you could give me a few ideas/tips.

6' 150lbs never been to a gym in my life really. I have access to an awesome gym here on base. Id like to put on a few lbs of muscle. Last week or so I've been trying to go mon/weds/fri. Is that enough, too much too little? I have to do cardio (I know thats not good for gaining mass but I have to for time being). Im kind of just learning how to do the machines (Mostly because I dont have too many ideas on how to use the free weights). Im doing roughly 10-12x3. Today I used a chest fly machine a chest press machine and a bicep machine. Also a 1.5 mile run throw in there. Was there for about an hour. I know everyone stresses diet I dont eat terrible, but I dont eat great either. I work wierd hours but usually eat some cereal or an omlette (9pm) then turkey sandwich water and chips for lunch (2:30am) Then cereal oatmeal omlette or something crazy(8am) Then bed around noon.

Any kinda tips would be helpful should I be taking some kind of protein drink? lol Thanks again

If you are a beginner i would stick with learning the basics first, it'll be the foundation of your muscle building. and that is compound movements, i know free weight seems intimidating but it's the best you can do for your body and muscle building. ask someone in the gym to show you, or watch youtube and practice for yourself, form is most important when if comes to lifting. as for diet, make sure you eat enough to gain muscle but not too much you gain fat. if you havent gain a single pound after a week of eating, eat more, gain more than 2lbs after a wekk eat less.

Don't kill yourself in the gym the first 2 weeks, when you first start the soreness is the worst. so pace your self and don't get burnt out.

Looking for a little advice. I'm mid 30's 185lbs and 5'6". My current routine is run 30 mins(approx 5k) three times per week and on the other three days do 2 exercises for bi's, tri's, chest and shoulders (3 sets of 12 for each). Not sure I am writing that clear, but I do 6 sets for each body part above in the entire workout.

Will this get me anywhere? I have been doing this for months and notice no weight loss. I am not trying to bulk up as I am already quite stocky. Any advice would be appreciated. I realize diet is an important factor, but would like advice on my workout for now. My goal is a little weight loss and muscle defining.

W/O me having to read all the way through this thread...What do you recommend for the 55+ crowd besides checking with the doc or digging a hole?

I am 55 but my brain says I'm 21. Muscles and joints don't bounce back like they use to & soreness seems like the onset of a heart attack . PKIM...I've searched for advise from several and although my bod is older my mind is still in a time warp...make sense wiper snapper.

Oh ya...& why does it seem like your head is stuck on that body in the 1st post???

Can anyone recommend a weight/mass gainer that doesn't have 9 billion grams of sugar in it?
Ideally, it'd be pretty rich in vitamins/minerals/all-that-jazz too

Thanks
