Deadlift/Power Clean (alternate the two) 5x5 pyramid up for deadlifts, 5x3 for powercleans

And 2. Squat 3x5

Awesome workout today, I was kinda of suprised because I weighed the same as last week but still made PR on everything which is awesome. My leg was still hurting on squats. But I felt really strong today even though I havent gained a lb. I am working on increasing my calories from 2950 to 3400-3500 on workout days, 3000 on cardio days, and 2800 on non workout days. And see how that goes.

Good and bad workout today, The good part is I got a PR on each lift, The bad part is my leg is done with, it just kills me everytime I squat, the only time it hurts is when I squat, its the top of my leg, its not my quad but the top of the leg. It hurts like a monther trucker and this time it hurt even worse. If feels like its going to tear, So what do you guys recommend I do? Take a week off from squats and continue with deadlifts and everything else and see if the leg heals in a week, or do you think I should just work through it? Because I know I can, but Im just scared of it not getting better because I dont give it time to heal? Im just afraid if I take time off for the squat that the weight I can handle for it will go down, and I dont want that.

Cardio: Elipitical
Time: 30 Minutes
Distance:3.45 miles
Calories: 430

Stretching for my leg.


My leg was really sore this morning, I no that I did more damage to it then I should have by lifting on it when it was hurt. The cardio made it suprisingly feel a lot better, dont know why but it did. Now I am just trying to find out what my workout tomorrow and next week is going to look like without legs.

from your other thread where you were pointing in that diagram...it looked like it was pointing to your groin. if that is the case you need to be careful so you dont tear it

edit: forgot what i just said it was to high to be your groin

Rest. Don't risk a serious injury - it's not worth it. You can choose to be out of the game now for a week or two, or you can choose to be out for a few months.

Thanks guys,

Yeah im taking next week off of legs so that my leg recovers, I will be stretching it through out the week to try and make it better.

I hope by monday november 15 I will be able to squat again.

do bodyweight squats hurt or only once you hit a certain weight on the barbell?

Bodyweight squats dont hurt, It just makes it so I can feel that I do have pain there, But when I do put weights on it just brings the pain out full throttle.

damn bro, i don't even know how to go about addressing that. have you seen a physical therapist or had any imaging work done to see what the cause problem is?

moving your body weight around shouldnt cause pain i dont think

Yeah I know, Ive had this type of problem a few years go from playing football, I just hope it recovers in a week so I can get right back into squatting.

Great workout today, Military Press was heavy but I get into a good mind set and set PR. I didnt do chins today because after barbell rows my biceps were fatigued so I tried chins and could not do them so I replaced them with lat pulldowns. The weighted Hypers were pretty heavy also, I barley got all three sets for 8 reps but I did and my back felt really tight after. But good workout.

Overall this was a good workout, My bench press still sucks, for some reason it is my hardest lift to get up, I dont know why. Barbell Rows felt great in the back, when I do these my body does go up like 5 degrees which I hope is ok. Deadlifts were awesome, Im so glad I got 255, and it felt light, These did make my leg a little sore so I might no do them friday because I cant have anything make my leg sore. On Dumbell presses I used a less weight then usual because my body is not use to the movement anymore, and also I layed my notebook and pen under where I was doing these and I dropped the weight on the pen and it blew up, INK went everywhere, So I tried to hurry up and clean it up but it was stained, so I just played it cool. :omg:

My leg was not sour this morning so I decided to try squats, I felt really good on the warm up sets, but right when I went heavy the sorness came right back so I stopped right there, I didnt want to agravate it. I wont be squatting again until next saturday and I hope by then that I am fully healed, that will be 17 days off of squats, I hope that I dont lose anything on my squat or legs, that will depress me greatly. CGBP felt light, my triceps are really coming up. It felt like I could get 115x6 but didnt want to push it today, I am just trying to take it easy this week. :eek:
