Luckily it ended up being a bad pull. After giving it a week of rest i was able to throw midranges and some light fairway discs. After 2 weeks i was back to about 90%

I think the problem was i tended to fall into the dg marketing hype and was using too many high speed drivers. I was putting way too much muscle into them. I now realize my arm speed fits more 9-10 speed discs and i been throwing them much more comfortably and about the same distance

Yeah, that's my style. I once hurt my shoulder and tried everything to avoid the ortho -- GP (muscle relaxants), PT, chiro, rest, playing through the pain....before giving in, getting the MRI, and finding it was something that nothing but surgery would solve. Lost 2 years playing that game.

Pulled a muscle like our O.P. and the problem with that is, there's no meter that tells you when it's healed. Feels good at rest, play, hurt it again. Feels good at rest, wait a week, play, hurt it again. They kept telling me to lay off for 6 weeks, and I kept trying to renegotiate. The final cure was when I got an invite to go to Flyboy in 6 weeks, and figured that was worth following instructions, this time.

Put a little time in the form thread, I wish I had been more fluid younger. Might have stopped me from smashing myself up so bad trying to overthrow everthing.

When you find the right swing it's amazing, so easy and smooth with zero (low haha) pain.

You can only muscle a disc 200' maybe 300' after that you are limited by lower body mechanics
