View Full Version : Hamstring problem PLEASE HELP

12-10-2010, 08:14 PM
I am getting a sharp pain in my glute ham tie in, on one side, at the top of squats, GM's and sometimes deadlifts. I've had this pain for a while now (at least 6 months) off and on and it really worries me. Sometimes it hurts pretty bad. It deffinitly feels weak in that area and a wide stance GM really aggrivates it (to help describe where it is) I've gone through a full meet prep with this problem, did the meet, and am now pretty close to meet prep again with this same problem. Im not sure if this is a nerve thing like sciatica, but I've never had a problem like this and know people injure their hamstrings pretty easily. Any insight on this wouild be great, and I'll provide more info if it helps.

I'm not sure what's wrong, but have you tried any rehab work on it like foam rolling or stretching?

I foam roll almost daily and stretch also. That an icing has fixed any problem I've previously had

Some time off (REST) and then getting back into it with some light one-legged DLs, GHRs, and hills might be worth a try.
