Re: Athletic Pubalgia (Sports Hernia)

It's turned out very well. I'm about 5 months out from the surgery and apart from some adductor weakness and a little soreness around the scar, am pretty much back to normal. There is no lingering...

Re: Back Squat: Back into spasm.

I've had the same thing happen but everyone's different so this advice may not apply:

- agree to get your technique checked out by someone who really knows how to look for rounding (you won't be...

Re: Working out after cervical disc herniation

Agree completely with Mike. Did you not go through physical therapy?

I had/have 2 cervical disk herniations (search here and I think you'll find some info) at C5/6 and C6/7. You need to figure...

Re: Athletic Pubalgia (Sports Hernia)

Fair point, Frank. Sports Hernia is not a common diagnosis and there are those who either feel it is not a separate condition or should not be operated on. In addition, there is a debate as to...

Re: Using belts for the Olympic Lifts?

Lincoln has a lot more experience than I but a good 2nd pull is going to be so close to your stomach that it can lift your t-shirt. You also want to maximize the arch which I think a belt would...

Re: clean vs. High pull

May not be an issue with young athletes but I find that the high pull can provoke impingement in the shoulders. The clean, properly done, should not.

Re: Using Grip Tape on Oly Bar

The wheel has been invented already. It's called chalk. That will soak up the sweat.

Re: Forearm Building & Crossfit

Sounds like you really want to describe some exercises for the forearm so why not go ahead? People who feel the need can then use them.

You may be right that there are sports (or people) where...

Re: Shoulder Press

Push presses (dip before you push in order to get some momentum) then really focus on the negative movement.

Re: Squats/Starting Strength

Posting a vid is ideal. Could be that you are not pushing your knees forward as far as you can, forcing you into an artificial position that requires your back to go forward. There is a debate...

Re: Why are my squat weights so low?

I'm guessing that you have never before squatted that low with weights. It's perfectly natural, when you put your body into a new ROM, for your weights to be low. The muscle has to develop and the...

Re: Training people without the flexibility to do a full squat

While I don't disagree with Brian's prescription, I don't agree that everyone is flexible enough to squat deep (at least at first). After 20-30 years of life in front of a computer screen, the hip...

Re: Good Orthopedist in NYC

shoulder in this case, although I tend to need various body parts at different times. Ideally someone within an orthopedic practice would be best so I could stick with them for different injuries.

Re: Squat flexibility and knee direction

As someone with similar issues, I'll give you my take on it:

if the knees are tracking in, it's probably because of abductor weakness. This should improve over time but make sure they make a...

Re: Shoulder/elbow pain

It is possible as I have two cervical disk herniations on that side. On the other hand, it seems to have started with snatches and the herniations are no more painful than usual.

Re: Weird, sharp pain in my abdomen

Hernias usually do not hurt very much (I've had 3). That doesn't mean you have one. If the pain continues, you just need to see a doctor. Diagnosis via the web is not recommended.

It's probably a common beginning pain but that doesn't mean that you should disregard it. Simple answer: avoid things that create the pain for a few weeks.
