Congrats on the two-wheel bench...nice milestone. Now be a gentleman to the young lady.
Just started wearing a mouth guard last week.
Went to the dentist with a sensitive tooth -- she said it wasn't a cavity, but asked me if I "clinch." I said 'yes, sometimes when lifting.' She said to get a cheap boil-and-bite mouth guard and that should help. Made sense. I'll have to give it a little more time to know if it helps my sore tooth.
The stance you describe is where mine has ended up as well. Also feels easier on the knees. I'll probably still use a wider, knees out stance if I ever go back to wraps.
Hi Whitley, Reverse hyper machine seemed to have helped Louis Simmons from what I heard. Also, have you tried physio or chiro? I know some are overrated but maybe worth a shot?
I am also an older lifter and also took martial arts for a number of years. I feel that stretching, messaging and focusing on techniques as well as getting lots of rest (not overtraining) are really useful for older people.
I have also stopped posting on this site for a long time.
Probably couldn't hurt. I grit my teeth during lifts quite a bit too, I'm actually more annoyed by the fact that my jaw muscles are always tight than my teeth.
