Hey guys, I need some help. I have tried many different methods to get to competition depth on my squat, but nothing has helped. I have stretched, weighted stretched, yoga type stuff ect. and nothing has worked. I have partial tears in my knees, and the worst is a pinched nerve in my groin area. I have been studying everything to do with lifting for a couple years, but due to health issues I have only been lifting for roughly 8 months. I was wondering if anyone knew a method to gain flexibility for pinched nerves? The only way i can make depth is to do this weird tip toe dance. The 2 things that have helped me the most are front squat and bear complex (power clean type stuff).
Stats: 22 years old, been training for 8 months, 6', 175 LBs., 215 Bench, 320 DL, 140 MP, and squat to depth .......maybe 85 or so. These maxes are estimates (I haven't maxed in a while). My big problem is my strength is my legs. I can squat maybe 90, but yet i can squat roughly 300 just 2"s or so above depth. Any help is appreciated, as I want to compete in full comps, not just Push & Pull. Thanks guys.
