Yea injuries suck and if you want to lift again 100% you don't go and see a general public or even some "sport" PT. They will tell you to not go to the gym but that's the complete opposite you should do, when you injure yourself it's all about movement movement movement to prevent it from scaring and being fucked up forever.

I saw this video a long time ago and though it was interesting..

I didn't really think about it again until this guy who had won multiple world strongman competition tore his quad. In Two days he was in the gym and I was like wtf what are you doing. A week later he was squatting with heavy wraps around his injury. Now three months later he finished sheiko on squat progression and now is fine.

I've managed to work around my groin pain but I think my days of heavy lifting are behind me. I can no longer back squat or deadlift, and can only front squat and Stiff-legged-deadlift. FS+Leg Curl (can't leg press) and SLDL + hamstring curl are how I'm going to keep my legs joocy.

That being said i'm the most aesthetic i've ever been. I've dropped the gym to 2 days a week and I'm focusing on other persuits--I started taking a hip hop dance class that's 75% Asian chicks. I try and do more yoga (though it's hard). I'm about to buy new running shoes to start running more.

Do any of you guys do isolation core/ab work. I hate doing it, but I figure for aesthetics I need to incorporate it. So far I've been depending on compound lifts for abs, but meh.

What should I do/how many times a week?

I do ab work at the end of each session.

Been doing it for a while now and it's thickening and strengthening my core. So it's working.

I do planks/side planks/side plank lifts. I'm up to 90 seconds now. Once i get to 2 minutes i'll start weighting it.

I've upped my core work too and it had helped my squats a lot. Have an easier time keeping that tightness when the weights get heavy.
post #31852 of 46469
Looks like i'll be doing some of that as well then! I think i'll do Ab wheel, hanging leg raises, planks, Dragon Flags and whatever its called when you grab a V rope, hook it all the way at the top, and do kneeling weighted crunches?
post #31853 of 46469
Yeah I do Ab wheel too. Always try a few standing ones but I'm too weak for full ROM so I just go as far as i can. Still tougher than the kneeling ones which I do afterwards.


Just tried some light high bar squats for the first time in ages (for DL warm-up). Will take some getting used to but it was fun, gonna try and switch to high bar in due time.

IDK man. It def depends on the injury which in itself prompts a visit to someone trained in treating injuries. I have had injuries ranging from foot breaks to dislocated shoulders. Lots of lumbar, shoulder and elbow sprains as well. Time off hasn't steered me wrong. Lifting is a marathon not a sprint... a couple of weeks or even months off to let shit heal won't kill you.


Letting go of my fear of getting fat has opened me up to eating enough to trigger gains. I love it. I can see the growth on the bar and in the mirror. I can damn near feel it. If you are a hardgainer you have to force yourself to eat a little more than your body wants to. Otherwise you won't grow. It seems simple but I'm only just now getting to see it firsthand beyond noob gains.

What do you think, mobility or strength issue? Last one was 90% 1RM.
Sorry to keep bothering you guys with this.

 

Even at the low weight, you get some low-back flexion. Mobilizing hips/hamstrings might help a bit. My major feedback from this video is that you should slow down a bit. You drop into the bottom of the squat very quickly, and in doing so, make it harder on yourself to keep core tension.
