The ability to abduct the legs is a mobility/flexibility (don't know which is which) issue. 

The ability to maintain the "knees out" position under a heavy weight is strength issue. It is the glutes function to keep the knees tracking correctly.

IIRC its the medial glute. 

 

I've had this issue. I stand pretty wide when I squat and half a year ago my knees would buckly in slightly in the bottom of squats. I suspect this had a role in my knee problems.

 

What I did to fix it:

- Activate glutes before squats so they fire properly in the bottom: band X-walks, have a rubber band between the knees on squat warm ups (so I have to actively force the knees out), wide stance box squats (done without rocking off the box - just stand straight up with power from the legs and glutes)

- Do lots of hypertrophy work for the glutes and hips: reverse hypers, glute bridges, lunges, deadlifts, RDLs, etc....

- only squat with a weight that I can maintain good position in. That is, start over with perfect technique.

This is very good advice, I had the same issue and had to drop the weight on my squat by like 75 pounds. In the long run it was much better, since I also added a lot more depth and probably fixed other form problems I didn't even know about.

 

I wouldn't squat in dress shoes. What if you slip? What if the cheap heel shatters under load?

@ridethecliche

 

Fix your anterior pelvic tilt. Full extend your hips and knees by flexing your glutes/VMO and twist your feet outwards before beginning your first rep. Repeat this when you come out of the hole. Consider squatting with a light band around your knees to learn glute activation. And either you're really skinny or your breathing/bracing is for shit.

fixing my anterior tilt / lordosis took me 2 years. best of luck

So much for being an optimist confused.gif

Can disc problems manifest themselves as pain in muscles on the side? I did SLDLs yesterday for the first time in months and my back feels sore in a different way than the DOMS in my hamstrings. And my back has been semi-weird since I got back from Mexico in mid January

Re to the people that are asking why I'm even doing these lifts:

 

I saw a surgeon on the other side of town. He knows my surgeon and we all share a fellowship so we all meet weekly. Nothing but respect.

His verdict to me after a post op MRI at 1.5 years was that I still have some 'stuff' so it's not unsurprising that I have some tingling/issues from time to time, but if I was an athlete playing a contact sport, that he would have cleared me for full activity.


I'm doing pretty well and I'm trying to determine if the issues I have are minor flare-ups or if they're actually bothering things in there. So I'm testing the waters. If I do it a few times and the issues crop up. I'll give it up.

If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. Such is life. Like. I'd be pretty disappointed, but I'm sure I'd get over it.

I'm just having a hard time how to do stuff that I can make progress in and keep up my enjoyment of exercise without having more issues. I think getting back to cycling and maybe starting swimming will be good, but if you guys have other suggestions I'd be all ears.

 

Thanks y'all!

If you have another activity or two it makes life a lot easier when you realize you can't lift heavy for a couple weeks. We've got a pretty good climbing scene; BKB is close to you and an awesome gym. The downside is it's $100/month but they do have a weightroom.

Wish I feel nearly as good as this guy does when I'm 70.
