  1. Once my hip was out and that was keeping my glute med and psoas from firing, I felt a strong pain similar to what you were describing.

    Eek that doesn't sound good. I'm hoping it heals soon through some mobility work. How did you get your hip back in?

  3. 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.

    This should do it unless it's really bad. You can also lay in a door way with one foot on the frame and push and both hands on the other pulling up. Same concept.

  5. 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.

    It was recommended in BASL to do it after you tweak your back. Pain often radiates downstream or upstream of where the actual problem lies. It could help, it may not. Just give it a try.

    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.

  10. Today:

    Cat-back lat pull
    Pendlay row.
    Pull-up's
    DB row
    Shrugs
    Face-pulls
    DB curl
    Banded ez bar curl
    Calves
    Foam roll
    Static stretching

    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.

    That could be. It's good to have a fast negative to conserve energy and get your stretch reflex, but you have to be especially dilligent to remain tight while you do so.

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

  13. 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.

    Bench+buckets: 8x3

    Used buckets w/ 60+ chains in them. Made me stay extremely tight. I had too much wobble.

    Banded press down: onx mini
    X35
    X35
    X25

    DB fly: Rest pause- 40's
    20/6/6

    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.

  14. 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.

  16. Week 2: Day 3- Heavy Deadlift

    Deadlift: 405x2

    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
    225x8x2
    235x8

    Good news is my IT bands are back to normal.

    Shrugs: 225
    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

    Cool, def going to loosen it a notch or two. I weighed in at 212.5 yesterday, so I think it's time. Lol.

  20. 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

  21. Tighten your core(with air in stomach), pull the belt tight, then cinch it just barely.

    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.

    I'm hearing a lot of whining in the group recently. I did the same work when I weighed 145 pounds and still lifted, and loved that job.

    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.

    Don't let Jim bully you!
