Currently doing a power lifting program for the first time ever! I found this program from one of the top lifters in my weight class in the world. I am not however following it verbatim I have added some exercise that I find more beneficial and fit me better. I am currently 4 weeks in and everything was looking good until yesterday. I had done all the work for the week I was supposed to do and went in yesterday. That was not the problem. Extra work is never a problem, I did however not warm up properly and them decided to squat. In the middle of one of my sets I also had taken unusually long to begin my next set.
I begin my next set, going for a set of three. First squat: good, Second squat: grinder, but good, Third squat: misgrooved, tight hip flexor. I should have fell with the weight but grinded it up anyways and felt extreme discomfort in tendons around the top of my femur. On a day off I get injured for pure stupidity. Hopefully this does not hurt me going into the Monster Bash this Halloween.
TO FIX IT:
I am a YouTube self help fanatic. I have already found multiple videos that can help relieve this issue within a week. Elliot Hulse videos to the rescue. I have found hip flexor routines as well as multiple foam roller stretches that should put me back on track. However, I’m not going to push it to try to get a certain weight for this meet on squats just to do well and it hurt me down the line.
