Pretty much everyone has rotated hips, so don't feel too bad :P

APT is a mug... gotta hit the hammies, glutes and abs. Most people forget about the first two

That's true.

 

The frustration of not being able to train properly or enter the meet took over. Being injured just sucks so bad, and its bugs me that it has struck me despite that I'm pretty much doing everything "the right way". It would be one thing if I had trained like an idiot, but I don't think that has been the case.

You can still develop imbalances or 'overtrain' even if your technique is right. That's one of the issues of high volume stuff.

I'm also proper fucked up in terms of body alignment. My hip is tilted and rotated, right shoulder tilts forward causing the right side of my upper back to "point out" (aka minor scapular winging) and my spine has a small sideway curve.

The man has worked with most of the powerlifters in my club. He even used to set up a table there and massage during training sessions. He basically told me that every tall lifter he knows has been injured, mostly due to worse leverages and relatively smaller wrists and joints. Every somewhat good powerlifter is short and thicker built. Told me I've "chosen the wrong sport", lol.

He is about as tall as me, same build but 40 pounds heavier, suffers from chronic elbow pain and had to give up his PL training.

Feels like a bright future.

Welcome to my world. Look on the bright side - you have the resources available to you to ensure you are properly informed. It would be much worse if you were self-training at a globo-gym, sustained an acute injury requiring a full-stop in training and didn't have access to someone with an informed perspective, let alone the someone with same body type and experience.

Fix your perspective right quick, though – it is easy to be depressed about this stuff, I know I was/still am – but you literally don’t have any other choice other than to suck it up and deal with it. Your rehab will progress much better if you are relentlessly positive about it… and you don’t really have any other choice. Being miserable sucks and it happens but you have to get your mind in the right place, otherwise it’ll sink you. I spent months being a bitch about my elbow before I changed my mind, and I still have days where I feel like I’ll never lift again, but it gets better.

Ultimately, training is a privilege, so stuff like “no squats/deadlifts for one month = all gains lost” is a) untrue and b) self-defeating. Only being able to do super-light pump training on machines sounds like a curse to you, but it sounds fucking fantastic coming from a guy who hasn’t experienced loaded elbow flexion in months – it is all about perspective. With that being said, I know you just got the diagnosis and had your sights set on a meet so you absolutely should take a few days to let the feels flow so you can get back to fixing it ASAP.

Feels, man. Feels.

Just do what is in your ability training-wise and take any improvement as a blessing. Longevity is more important than rapid gains.

Kinda feel like a whiny bitch looking back at my post now, but thanks for the support guys.

I've already accepted the situation and I am aware that if you look at it in the long term, small hick-ups like this don't matter.

 

At least I can bench like usual and the upside to no taxing leg training is that I have more time and energy to bring up my lagging arms.

I'm sorry to hear this. I can't say I understand how you feel but I used to over train at guitar playing. I used to play for at least 3 to 4 hours a day and sometimes up to 10 hours which caused me to burn out and quit. I just hope you will heal soon.

That's not over training.

Damn, that's my PhD advisor in a nut-shell. I've never seen someone spend so much time at work, seem so exhausted, and yet get so little real work done.

Lifting and learning about how important recovery is has made me feel much less guilty about sleeping 8 or 9 hours a night.

I know you guys are into bulking, but I'm more of a lean type of guy. that said, I want some definition, but at the same time to fit into skinny suits, etc.

anyway, i'm 5'6" about 126 lbs give or take a couple.

based on the photos below, what is my bf% estimate? curious, as i'm realizing that that might be the best barometer vs. pounds, alone:
