GHD Pain

When I do the GHD situps with full ROM, there is a point as I'm nearing fully inverted where I get a pain high on the back of my right hip, a small point that seems much like it would be the ilias. It only hurts when I go down, not when I'm coming up. It doesn't affect my sit-up except that I get gun-shy on the reclining motion. I normally don't start feeling it until I'm 8-10 reps into my first warm-up set (but I'll feel it for ever rep after it starts), and I don't feel that pain doing anything else. Thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: GHD Pain

I guess this one's sinking into the Suck it up, Buttercup category.

FWIW, by keeping my hip flexors as tight as possible on the recline, I seem to be doing better. Today no pain until late second set.

No, what hurt much worse was energetically jumping up onto the rounded pads--and right over the rounded pads, with nothing to grab onto all the way down to the tile floor. Some bruised thigh, just laughed and got back on again.

Re: GHD Pain

Are your legs straight on the way down?

Re: GHD Pain

Chris, I thought so, but when I refocused on that, the pain seemed to get much better, as noted above, no pain until late the second set, and less pain throughout afterwards. So yes, they are straighter now than when I first posted.

There's another thread on the same topic in Exercises, I should have seen it first, but per that thread I'm also going to be very certain of where my hips/thighs are relative to the pad next time up.

Re: GHD Pain

Well you actually want your knees bent, and straighten them to pull yourself out of the bottom. Keeping them locked straight will put more stress on your back.

Re: GHD Pain

Success, three warm-up sets of 15, no sharp pain. I moved the leg plate one notch further away, moving my haunch right up to the pad, and I reclined with relaxed, curled leg, came up with straight leg. Don't know which did it, if not both, but it was a good day. Thanks!
