I had a small molar extracted Wednesday. I asked the dentist how long before lifting again. The dentist said 24 hours which seemed a bit fast , and her assistant said a week . Now i am really confused. It was very small tooth and there was no problems with the extraction.
i'm tall as well and was an avid lifter for over 10 year i found i struggled to excel in benching but i did very well in deadlifting rows military presses and curls i've had set backs in the last 6 years but i still belive i can benefit from lifting although i'm not as strong as before i hope someday to be but back on the subject my shorter friends around 5"4 can press 50 lbs more then me but i keep pointing it out at 6ft43/4 i push it twice as far in my reps then him so i seem to do better with doing 6-8 reps instead of 10 but i've tried everything even chains which helped alot
