We can rebuild him...we have the technology
|Black blocks provided for modesty|
I did my upper body workout earlier in the day because I knew he wasn't going to be able to. Then I borrowed one of his contraptions because my shoulder is still feeling pretty bad. I thought I'd share some of the things he's invested in the past week to help him on his road to recovery in case any of you should need them at some point.

Tens Machine for Pain Management.
He read up on TENS units which stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation and wanted to give it a try. I told him to ask the chiro first because I knew they had a unit at the office and he said it would aid in recovery and while the at home ones aren't as strong as the pro units, it could definitely help. I think he's used it once after watching a YouTube video about where to place the electrodes. He said it provided a little relief for him. I used it on my knee to see if it would help my knee pain after these brutal leg days but I didn't really feel much difference. It just feels a little tingly but I didn't jack up the volts because I'm a chicken. I'll try it a few more times to see if it works better for me. I won't dismiss it yet as they say electrode placement is hit or miss until you find what works for you. We'll see if this ends up being a permanent aid in either of our recovery.

Good Lord man, the crap you need to help your body heal when you're out of your 20's!
We had our 2nd batch of chili and prayed.
Between the onions, peppers and black beans I'm surprised I wasn't skywriting Surrender Dorothy above the house. Then again, the wind was blowing so hard yesterday, I was surprised a house didn't fall on someone. It made me want to watch Wizard of Oz but I knew the Mr wouldn't have it...or at least not pay attention to it whilst I quoted the entire movie along with the characters. I'm sure that's not annoying at all.
What products do you use to aid in injury recovery? What movie can you recite line for line?
