I was wondering what I should do in regards to my hip pain when I go too low on squats or do any activity that requires bringing my knee high up, such as biking or sprinting. I’m a 17 year-old boy, 6 feet 2, lifting for 7 months now using SL5x5 and getting some decent results so far. If I don’t go back to squats and deadlifts soon enough, I’ll go crazy. The pain only occurs when I do some sort of effort, when I don’t, it just calms down. So I guessed it was just some tightness in the hip flexors or something like that. It’s not a stabbing pain, so I guess I know for a fact that it’s not a joint pain… I dunno, you tell me, you’re the expert.
You’re probably right about your hip flexors being tight. Add the following “posture stretches” to your routine (see video) AND work to strengthen core stabilization with exercises like “the plank”, etc.
yes, it can but I promise you that the stretch will not nearly as severe an effective as when done on the stool. You can have a stool set up like the one in my video for about the same price that it would cost to buy a foam roller. I would suggest making one and using it daily. In fact I use it 3 to 5 times a day.
At what age do you stop growing the reason i ask is i am 62 years young but find it hard to put size on
Muscle growth is intrinsically tied to hormones. As your body begins to produce less anabolic hormones, your capacity for muscular growth diminishes. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t get stronger.
Strength is a function of the nervous system, and you can always increase the efficiency of your nervous system.
Yo Elliot! After standing still for even short amounts of time (doing dishes or brushing my teeth) I catch myself standing on the outsides of my feet and need to actively correct it repeatedly. I’ve been more aware of this more so in the last 2 years and wonder what this could be doing to my ankles/feet and how I might be able to correct it?
Thanks for your time and keep up the amazing work, really love… Read more…
