    Thanks man. I widened my stance today which seemited to help. I'm pretty sure it was the Reverse band squats that hurt my hip because that was the most weight I ever locked out. First time I used knee wraps on squats I hurt my hip flexor as well.

    Thanks Guys. Yea I have a tenancy to always go too low I didn't even mean to bury it. Better than Squatting to high right? My sumo is finally starting to move, I hope to surpass my conventional any week now!

    Yup a bikini competitor, she'll be lots of fun. I'd love to get a first place girl on stage as well. Would do a lot for my career. She has an excellent frame 5'10 she's just too skinny. Aslo pretty smart and knowledgeable with training but she said she was doing her training split from a magazine. O boy just wait till what I have up my sleeve for her.

    Hope your hips heals up, mate. I found the best thing for my hips (which are toight as hell) was med ball rolling. Eternally better than any foam rolling IMHO.

    sorry to hear about the hip man, hope it heels up quick. id agree with flynn, however ive had a lot of success with a lacrosse or softball. also taking ice baths a few times a week has helped make my hips feel tons better

    Sorry to hear, dude. I always feel the worst all around when I can't train for whatever reason. It's all part of training I guess. Heal up and get back to SFW!

    Thanks for the encouragement everyone, I'm sure its the squats not sumos that hurt my hip flexor. And keith no way I could do the chins maybe the dips. I suck so bad at chins no matter how much or little I weigh.

    Hip was feeling ok this morning so with high hopes I set off to the gym.

    Thoroughly warmed up, ok time to squat

    Squat
    45x10
    135x2-Nope, felt pain in my hip flexor ended it. So tempted to just push through. I'm a grown ass man and nothing wanted to make me cry more than not being able to squat, again!!!

    SLDL-I wanted to pull heavy soooooo bad!
    135x5
    185x5
    225x10
    225x15x2

    Ghetto GHR's
    2x8

    ABS
    Band knee crunches2x15
    Standing band crunches2x15


    The gym I train at on sundays got a bunch of new benches and ****, so I was like o hey this is kinda cool then I go where the power racks SHOULD BE and they're gone!!!!! I went an complained and told them that they're fuking ******ed, srs. The guy told me that they are bringing one back because of all the complaints, but I doubt that. He probably just told me that to get me to go away. I say that because I work in the fitness industry I know how things work.

    Good news yesterday I was able to get some light squatting in!!!

    225x6-this bugged my hip flexor a little so I back it down
    185x10x2

    These actually kicked my ass big time lol. I almost forgot how badass squats are. Its really discouraging to be using such little weights but I'm just happy to be back squatting again. O and I'm sore as fuk today.
