Suspected Psoas Muscle Injury

Over the last few months, I’ve been having tenderness in the area around my left-side psoas (most notably when doing leg lifts/flutter kicks it would feel tender before warming up). I believe this is...

Re: Popping Knee

No, I can't see a military physical therapist because I'm not part of the military yet.

Like I said before, I went to my doctor when I first injured it back in February and she felt it but found...

Re: Popping Knee

Also, I've located exactly what it is that causes the discomfort.

Whatever it is runs from the back of my thigh (near the inside/inboard side of my thigh) and runs down my leg and wraps around and...

Re: Popping Knee

Thanks for replying, Brent.

Yeah, I definitely know that's a problem, however, what's strange to me is that the discomfort/pain only occurs on the INSIDE or inboard side of my knee, which is on...

Re: Popping Knee

So my knee had been doing fine, I was running faster than ever before, and running a few times a week in boots with no pain whatsoever. Until last Saturday, I had a physical fitness test and a three...

Re: breathe restriction

I used to run a lot in boots and a weight vest before I injured my knee.

I noticed VAST improvements in my breathing both with my ability to breath well with the weight, and when I would run...

Re: Popping Knee

Alright, I'll give it a try.

I've also heard that they sell knee bands or something that correct the tracking of the patella, is that worth trying as well?

Re: Popping Knee

Thanks a lot Brent, great information.

Can the tracking of the patella manifest itself into something worse? Because I really don't have a problem with it (because it doesn't hurt), but it does...

Re: Popping Knee

I think I failed to make this clear in my post.

That the popping actually comes from the OPPOSITE side of the knee where I experience pain.

The popping occurs on the outside of my leg slightly...

Popping Knee

I injured my knee two months ago from over training (running with weight). I went to the doctor about three weeks after the injury (it obviously wasn't very painful) and explained to her where my...

Re: Collarbone pain while doing dips

It's definitely right around the clavicle (collarbone). I usually feel it near the bottom of the dip, and as I push up out of the dip. It doesn't feel like a rotator cuff/shoulder pain, more isolated...

Collarbone pain while doing dips

I was doing dips last week and noticed that my collarbone area was hurting a little while doing the dips. I finished my workout and the next day the area was a bit sore. It's not really bad pain at...

Re: Knee/leg pain

Alright, thanks for trying Steven. I'll see if it improves and if it doesn't then I'll go to the doctor in a few days.

Re: Knee/leg pain

The pain is acute, it just started two days ago and ONLY flares up while running at certain times

I did a slow mile today and it didn't hurt bad at all, but I felt it beginning to become irritated...

Knee/leg pain

Hello crossfitters, I'm back again with another injury.

So I was running last night and I was on about mile two out of three and I began to feel pain in my left knee area. I just pushed through...

Hip stretching

I've been doing a lot more air squats and kettlebell exercises lately and I've noticed a problem with my hips/legs.

I always do these exercises after a good run so I'm quite warmed up by the time...

Re: Lower back trouble when lifting

I don't think so Brian. I think my core's in pretty good shape. I score 255 on the Marine corps PFT(14, 100, 20.00). By far the easiest part of the PFT is the crunches for me, I can bust out the 100...

Re: Lower back trouble when lifting

I think it's more of a form issue combined with perhaps a lack of flexibility. I started paleo again about two weeks ago. Outside of that I don't eat unhealthy (relatively speaking) food, just a lot...

Re: Lower back trouble when lifting

What exactly do you mean by something missing Mike?

How would I increase lower back stability? I definitely think it's a problem like you're suggesting.

Lower back trouble when lifting

I am prone to back injury, I don't know why. When I was in high school I hurt it while doing cleans.

About six/seven months ago I hurt it again doing cleans. I have been hesitant to begin lifting...

Re: Weight gain

Just posting an update. I went paleo about two weeks ago when I created this thread. I've been pretty strict and I'm down to 208. I'm going to remain strict on paleo until I get around 200. Thanks...

Re: Weight gain

Alright, I'll look into that Eric, thanks for the advice.

I ate paleo for while about a year ago but gave it up for monetary reasons.

I'm going to begin eating paleo again due to the fact that...
