Palm on onee knee and push up against it, hand behind the other knee and push down against it. Switch sides 3-4 times 5 second hold each time, then squeeze a med ball or something between your knees. You'll feel it set.

Thanks fella's. I'll give these a try in the morning. My hip feels absolutely fine. I don't know if I would necessarily feel it in my hip if it is out of place though.

Haha, a little hgh would be nice. I'm hoping this Is a quick fix. I can't afford any lingering problems. 1 bad week of mobility work and my body goes to sh1t. There is a lesson to be learned here.Originally Posted by Sean1332

Cat-back lat pull
Banded ez bar curl
IT band feels much improved today. I tried popping my hips back in, but nothing happened. I think it flared up from my aggressive negative portion of my squat and knees caving in a bit. I did a pretty thorough foam roll session today on it and plan on doing another one tonight.

Yup, I believe that's where my problem is. I was just dropping down and getting my eagle on without staying tight. Rookie mistake.Originally Posted by herderdude

Week 2: Day 2- Explosive Bench
Bench: 3x8- 205
Speed felt good and paused last rep. Also, was experimenting w/ different grips.
Incline bench: 5x3- 205
First time doing incline BB in awhile. Need to work on it more.
Used buckets w/ 60+ chains in them. Made me stay extremely tight. I had too much wobble.
Banded press down: onx mini
DB fly: Rest pause- 40's
Went back to my roots and did DC style. I did the extreme stretch at the end as well. Very painful.
DB shoulder press: 8x3- 50's
Solid workout. Lasted about 80 min. Now I'm going to eat until I feel sick.

Interesting. I see you toro and Sean pause last rep, but not all. I'll have to go all pinky and the brain and ponder that.
Solid workout buddy. I feel you in the incline. I have so much trouble not making it 80% shoulders and triceps through the whole lift.

First time pausing last rep was today. I got the idea from them. I like the idea of it. Either way, that's one more pause per set I'm doing than 3 months ago, HA.Originally Posted by rob112

Week 2: Day 3- Heavy Deadlift
As I was warming up I could tell my lower back was not cooperating. Wasn't a crippling pain, but enough for me to call it on DL's. Not to mention 405 felt like 500.
Oly Squats: 8x3
Good news is my IT bands are back to normal.
I did 10 wide, 10 medium, and 10 close grip. That's 1 set and 3 total sets.
Banded GM: 60x1- average EFS band
Plank: 2 min 30 sec.
Sh1tty week of lifting and life in general. Body is beat up and I feel like a old a$$ man. Lifting and my job is taking a toll on me. I literally spend all day picking up 80-90lbs of concrete, bundles of shingles, 8-12 ft pieces of dry wall, and big a$$ pieces of lumber/plywood. Good news is I won't be working there much longer.
Worst week of lifting I can remember. Going to let my back heal up and I guarantee I will be killing it everyday the coming weeks.

Is it possible a belt that's too tight can tweak your back? My belts a lever and when I originally set it the belt was tight and now that I put on 8lbs it's extremely tight. I have to suck in my belly to even close the lever. I'm going to adjust it, but I was just wondering if that could be part of the problem. I've never had issues before.
07-26-2013, 11:59 AM
Yes, it is possible. I actually leave mine a little looser now that I am doing even heavier weights as well. If you gained weight I would definitely loosen it.
07-26-2013, 12:01 PM
Cool, def going to loosen it a notch or two. I weighed in at 212.5 yesterday, so I think it's time. Lol.Originally Posted by CountryLiftin

I'm able to spin my belt around fully. You can bruise ribs if its tight. I just use it as surface to push my stomach against
07-26-2013, 12:03 PM
Tighten your core(with air in stomach), pull the belt tight, then cinch it just barely.
07-26-2013, 12:05 PM
Nice. Mines way too tight. I can't even suck air into my stomach with it. I'm 90% sure the belt is the culprit to my back pain.Originally Posted by Sean1332

Fair enough. I'm not saying I do the most work. Certainly not close to the work a AD grunt puts in. Just saying my bodies hurting.Originally Posted by jimbuick
