I’ve been fine until then, just got lazy and I’m now paying for it. Will really knuckle down on them when I get back to doing them.This is why my back was/is ******. I don't understand leg drive. I just can't do it.
I am ditching deadlifts (over 50kg) until i am sure its ok
If anything it sounds like you’re too reliant on your legs.See, my legs and hips defo don't feel like they're doing that.
I feel like i am squatting it on the up
The mechanics of it all intrigue me, because I really don't understand how its done right.If anything it sounds like you’re too reliant on your legs.
I picked out KK as he basically does a stiff leg deadlift but he’s adapted to tolerate and be strong in that position.
“Right” is highly variable between individuals and even amongst any given individual depending on what’s going on with them at any given point in time.The mechanics of it all intrigue me, because I really don't understand how its done right.
I am going to reach out to a friend who knows whats up and try getting a few lessons in
Not sure if this helps but the last 6-8 weeks i've been battling with pain in my glute tendion - basically when standing upright where your hip protrudes out the side of your leg. My phyiso mate told me to do glute strengthening exercises;I’ve got a slight left side gluteus medius strain (possibly gluteus minimus)
I strained it while deadlifting
I’ve been stretching, foam rolling and using a therapy ball as well as doing low intensity lower body work (deads, squat, front squat, good mornings, lunge)
Any other ideas to expedite recovery?
Pretty sure it's 100% now but I'm only easing myself into the lower body stuff to make sure I don't get another flare upGlute is a million times better
Did a bit of walking around my in laws place on the weekend (2 x 6 km walks) which seemed to help.
Then on Sunday night I was laying in bed with legs crossed and my left hip joint cracked and since then it’s felt like I’m back to 100%
Doing a light weight legs session after work today
If I'm experiencing no tendon soreness, the whole 2.5km before the pain kicks in, the gait change comes in response to the pain.How far can you run without any change to your gait?
Best to discuss with the physio but short term you could potentially use a brace to limit your “healthy” knee’s hypertension while continuing to work on the extension of the operated knee.If I'm experiencing no tendon soreness, the whole 2.5km before the pain kicks in, the gait change comes in response to the pain.
If I'm sore from either weights or running, virtually straight away.
My physio has said the hips issue comes from my good knee actually hyperextension too far, and so even though my operated knee is at full extension, there's a slight imbalance there in the height of my legs when I walk. Not sure how we are gonna tackle this.
