It makes me think some people are just not meant to squat, or maybe I have not found my sweet spot. I thought I had things figured out, but last squat sesh that right hip kept acting up again. Think it's a trapped nerve, but no amount of flossing, foaming, stretching seems to free it up, and if it does it's only a temporary fix. Really getting annoying. What're your thoughts?

Ah, that sucks. I don't know much about hip pain, luckily I've always had healthy hips. Couch stretch daily and GHRs 2x a week have kept my hips pretty happy. I can't recommend gentle hip distractions enough too, it's low impact and hella easy but it completely cleared up some fierce hip popping I was having when sitting around the house. Maybe it will clear up an impingement you have -

You just haven't found your sweet spot for sure, give it some time and your hips will eventually open up. Mechanically speaking everyone should be able to hit depth in squat with good form.

Charly sent me some pants today. They look like this on the model:

They are damn near slim fit on me lmao.

Also wifey's squat rack came in today. $150 shipped, fits in the closet and is rated for 300lbs. I think it was a good buy. Maiden session tomorrow, can't wait

I usually just reset if something starts hurting, especially with squats.  Much better than breaking something and being unable to lift for weeks +

 

You could just see a doc, too.  I was having mild lower back pain and ended up uncovering a bunch of issues I didn't know about.

Whatever I pulled in my groin isn't getting better. Still can't sumo deadlift, have stopped doing squats now as well frown.gif
post #37686 of 57265

I'm pleasantly surprised by how many people in here are squatting and pulling regularly. I normally post on Sherdog, where the S&C section is really into strength training. I recently just started lifting again after a yearlong layoff (grade 2 ankle sprain and torn rotator cuff almost at the same time, and then as soon as I got cleared to lift I perforated an ulcer that almost resulted in my death), and my numbers are terrible. I went from 365/310/455 (s/b/dl) @ 160 to 215x5x3/165x5x3/300x5 @ 154. It's going to take me at least six months to get back to where I was before.

If you'd like my opinion, I'd suggest posting form check videos to see if there are any minor problems with your form first. I have ankylosing spondylitis, and I've found that I get the strangest nerve twinges running through my legs if I even slightly favor one side (I'm a wrestler, so that happened a lot in the early days). Advanced lifters can even gain a significant amount of knowledge by filming their reps every now and then because a lot of rep failures/discomforts can arise due to minor form errors as you become more experienced.

 

Otherwise, it might be a good idea to see a doctor who specializes in sports medicine.

Slim is fine I think. As long as they're not "tight." That material has stretch so it's still very comfy with a slim fit.

Yea they are fine. Damn near perfect actually. It was a good buy.

I already miss peaking for a meet. My deadlift felt SO much better at the meet as opposed to being beat up during a training cycle. I should have attempted 405 at the meet given the bar speed and how solid my back stayed, oh well.

You pulled 330 at the meet right? have you done 405 in the gym?
post #37692 of 57265
Yea. It was 340+ something at the meet. Oh well, nothing wrong with being a bit cautious with attempts and going 9/9 and being ininjured through the whole process.

What are gentle hip distractions?

I film my squats every session usually, and I have posted here. Even with the advice I get still feels off. This was from one of the last sessions, not going any deeper because if I do the pain uncomforted is exacerbated

It's in the youtube link I posted.

Watching you're video I can understand that you have hip problems. First thing to notice is you're a good 12" high of depth, like you pointed out.. Even at that height your lumbar spine (lower back) is immediately rounding, it hurts more to go lower because those tight hip flexors are pulled tighter by your lumbar spine. The hips and lower spine are all related, all those external and internal rotators connect to it. My guess is you have really tight hip flexors that are also weak along with bad bracing mechanics. You really need to understand what lumbar extension and lumbar flexion feels like, so you can stay in extension and avoid flexion. I'd practice lying supermans to sort of build a minds eye to what proper extension feels like:

http://www.criticalbench.com/exercises/supermans-exercise.htm

As for the tight hips I'd continue to sit on a lacross ball and release the hips. You're main goal should be to squat lower and lower each week while staying in lumbar extension, this will increase your hip mobility too as the weight pushes you under.

I know I get pegged for being crazy with this stuff, but it should be an easy fix if you stay on top of it and it's better than not squatting.

You might want to take a look at your lower back on deadlifts too.
