Looking to see if anyone has any advise and/or experience with my problem.
I have flat feet (plantar fasciitis) so I wear inserts in my shoes. They go from my heels to just below the balls of my feet. To top it off I am also bow legged.
I squat and dead without shoes but I'm beginning to notice that my hips are tightening up quite a bit the heavier I'm able to go (up to 375 for 8 reps on squats).
Should I wear my shoes so that I have the proper arch support or is it meaningless with that amount of weight since I'll be flattening them out. (They are made of some poly-carbonate blah blah blah....basically plastic).
The pain is very similar to the time before I had the arch supports and as the doctor explained back when I got them, my foot is out of alignment so it throws off everything else.
Or, should I just stop complaining and continue stretching?
