Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Inversion table for my back 3 x week

Interesting, what does this do for your back? Just stretching it seems?

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

Much more like decompressing the spine you can google and find plenty of material like that:





I am quite tall and always had problems with my back (many hours sitting on a chair with a bad posture). Since I 've been using the table no more problems it's really beneficial

Thanks. I am googling. I've always had low back pain that refuses to go away, I have a herniated disc and some nerve pressure that makes me "aware" of the pain 24/7, it is always there, a dull sensation 24/7. Some times of day or certain days it is much worse than others.

Back when I had insurance, before I started trading full time and opted to not pay ridiculous amounts of money for insurance, I was getting routine injections and had a couple Lumbar Radiofrequency Rhizotomy (RFR) procedures, all of which only provided temporary relief.

It has been a few years now that I've been without insurance, and without these treatments.

So, thanks - I am looking into this

And also, a product called Nubax looks quite interesting.

That reminds me. @Gary, whatever happened to you getting your black belt?

Mike

I only did Jui Jitsu a few times, and it happened to be with Carlos Machado in Farmer's Branch many years ago.

Hapkido is/was my thing; unfortunately, after moving, I stopped attending the class I had been going to for a few years due to the drive time.

I'll get back to it, eventually.

Gary

Same problem here, spent many hours with a physiotherapist (too expensive and too much time for each session). The Table will not solve your herniatic disc but it will release pain. The good thing it is not expensive (any brand will do the work just check the weight compliance according to your own weight, some cheap tables are built with cheap material and you want to make sure it is enough resistant), and you can use it whenever you need it.

Back Pain

BM,

My mom suffers from joint pain in her back, knee and hip. She started doing Tai Chi and her pain completely disappeared. Tai Chi also offers many other health benefits as well.

A little bit of casual bike riding

30 mile round trip from N Tabor area of NE Portland OR to Troutdale via I-205 bike path and Marine Drive 2 to 5 times per week at average speed of about 17 mph with cruising speed on Marine Drive generally between 19 and 24 mph depending on wind. Strong Columbia River Gorge headwinds can lower cruising speed to 14 mph and make it feel like one long hill climb. Will increase distance on weekends to as long as 70 miles with warmer weather. Long slow distance is out and intervals and close to LT workouts are IN. You do know what LT means, DON'T YOU?

Impedance scale says body fat is now 18.5% so I will need to increase the intensity and stay on the calorie restriction to get it down to around 12%. Getting there... I have a 200 mile ride coming up in July.

Next month I might put the PowerTap hub back in service so I can start monitoring real time power output and recording power vs time curves once again.
