post #23401 of 49493
Thread Starter 
I thought I did everything right: warming up and ramping up the weights, stretching, rolling out.

Well today, I felt/heard a nice pop in my right hip, just like before, only this time while warming up with 185. I am furious right now, not just because I got the same injury again but because not being able to squat is going to hurt my progress.

I estimate after about 2 weeks of staying off it, it will be okay to recruit that muscle again as an assistance muscle in other exercises that shouldn't use it, such as front squats and leg presses. I think that back squats are out of the question for me now, so my questions are:

1. Anything I can do to work my legs heavy for the next 2-3 weeks while I stay off it?

2. After the inflammation has cooled off, what can I do instead of back squats to work my lower body with heavy weights?

why people want to go heavy after popping something in the name of short-term progress is beyond me... if its minor and you can work around it then sure but if you're having recurring issues then i think you need to re-evaluate why you are doing what you're doing.

fix yoself, you should be focused on enjoying the process not some arbitrary number on the bar

Do you know what popped or are you just self doctoring? Go see a sports therapist who can actually figure out whats going on and help you.

Cressey advocates NB MR00. Will buy when VFFs break down.

I would imagine the simple issue is that a shoe which is designed to "return force" from foot strikes cannot be designed for use in the weightroom.

You surely know at this point that no one in this thread has the expertise to answer these questions. However, most of us have to rehab our shitty injuries with only guesswork by doctors and our own pains to sort out. I simply thought I would mention that split squats were all over the blogs this Summer and trap bar deadlifts are this season's holiday rage. The TBDL should have a bit more carry over to your squat than a conventional DL and the dead stop at the bottom might avoid your issue.

Eason seems like you are always injuring yourself. How's your form? Does your accessory work correctly match your weaknesses?

I was doing box squats to work on my weakness (tucking tailbone and general weakness out of the hole) and it worked wonders. But then this came out of the blue using warm-up weight.

I'm going to buy some oly shoes and narrow my stance, but I'll also have someone take video next time.

Eason if possible try prowler pushes / sled drags. Strength, conditioning and fat loss all in one.

Box squats with a narrow stance, is such a thing even possible? Acquire a pair of briefs and train around the injury.

Eason in that picture you posted recently your legs were small and yet you squat good numbers. Is it possible that squats are not working for you.


My workouts last 2 days have trashed me. Not sure what happened, went in the gym feeling good both days, but after a couple of sets really had to drag myself through it to finish everything rather than feeling energetic. Not lackign sleep or anything. Might have to have a few days off or go light for a week or somehting because this felt really shitty.
