So, I’m 17. I started training with weights in Dec 2013 with absolutely no knowlege/experiece. I got my squat from 80 to now 145lbs. I can deadlift 160lbs easily. Bench press on and off since my bench is broke. So would you say my beginner gains are gone and I need to use creatine? I am going to buy some whey soon. I am also trying to gain weight. I’m 147 right now. Trying to be 155 by mid-June. Any suggestions to add on to this. I did 5×5 training for almost 10 weeks a few months ago (got me to that heavy squat lol 😉 )
There are three phases to fracture healing: 1) Reactive, 2) Reparative, and 3) Remodeling. The reactive phase is characterized by inflammation and granulation tissue formation. The reparative phase is marked by cartilage callus formation and bone deposition. Finally, the bone deposited during the reparative phase is remodeled during the remodeling phase. Type X collagen is a homotrimeric collagen found in hypertrophic cartilage expressed during the cartilage callus calcification phase of fracture healing. After fracture, inflammation and clot formation occurs where type I and II collagen are found. Type III collagen is expressed by fibroblasts and type V is found in areas of fibrous tissue formation. In the soft tissue callus/chondroid phase, types II and IX predominate, with type II being deposited in areas of mature cartilage production and type IX stabilizing the fibrils of type II. In the callus calcification phase type X collagen is expressed by proliferating chondrocytes as the extracellular matrix undergoes calcification. In the osteogenic bone deposition phase, there is a progressive shift from primary to secondary spongiosa and type I collagen predominates.
