Re: Pulled Oblique and Strengthening core for squats

Steven, thanks for the link. Don't know why I didn't remember the Starr recovery method(it was linked further down, I'm already doing everything else besides heat), I'll start doing situps/side lifts to target the area and get proper blood flow and activity to promote healing. I would only rate my as a tier 1/2 since there's no bruising, but I have noticed some amount of swelling, and it hasn't gone away over a week.

Apparently lifting max weights several days after you strain isn't suggested. Oh well, I really wanted that squat pr! (getting close to 400).
