Well it is back to the gym tomorrow. It is a leg day. It has been three weeks since doing legs. I won't be able to do squats but leg presses, lunges and step ups do not bother my hip flexor so I will do those and stiff legged deads till it heals.

aw :cry:

Was the reason for dislocating your shoulders caused by accident?
the sun is the only vitamin that's for free and unlimited.

It'd be weird if he did it on purpose.

So I took some time off and the pain subsided. I went to squat last night and the pain came back....deep in the right thigh near my hip. I can do heavy leg press and have no problem. I guess there goes my weight gain plan. :( :( :(

Does it happen with hack squats or sissy squats?
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

Back off from anything lower body for another week or two. Regular, full lower body foam rolls & some mobility work. General rule is joints need movement, muscles stretches. Take a few cold showers & ice the area maybe.

Don't go subbing squats, just back off. Subbing squats for easier "versions" is no good, rest up.

If its still bad after a week or two seek advice. I'd only ever sub squats with hacks ect if a gun was held to my head

Also, if you don't already take glucosamine (veggie/vegan version)

Getting out of the car is painful, I have to use my arms to lift my leg out of the car!

This pain in my right thigh does not want to go away. I still have to lift my right leg out of the car when I exit the car. Sometimes it is hard to put on socks and shoes because of the pain. The pain will be back strong if I squat tomorrow. Not sure what to do tomorrow at the gym. :(
Stiff Legged deadlifts, lunges and leg press do not aggravate the injury at all though. Maybe I will do those....but I feel like a poser, not doing squats any longer. :(

I would think a trip to the doctor is in order....

I do too, but our health insurance changes and can't be spending that money...because if he wants an MRI it will cost me!!!!!!!!!!

I have no insurance and an in the hole 12k for my 2 er trips with 2 ct scans. Do you have a teaching hospital close by? Even just working out payment arrangements works. Neglecting it can lead to issues later. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and do something you can't afford to stay string and healthy
