Hey, I’m new to lifting and selected Stronglifts. I’m 49, 5’8", 170. Always been fairly trim despite many sedentary office job years. Ran in college but not much exercise since.
After 8 weeks, my squat is 180, BP and rows 130, DL 225, and OHP 100 (feels like I’m stuck here). Not great stats, but I’m seeing muscle gain and overall feel much better than 2 months ago.
Question is, when walking up stairs, my knees are super sore. I would think the squats would be helping. I’ve had my form checked, and the font feel sore any other time. That seem normal?
Also, I have chronic back pain on one side. Doctors say my right leg is a big longer than my left, causing compression in my iliosacral area. When I move around a lot or lift, it feels fine. Laying around or sitting a lot makes it worse. Anyone have experience with this? Should I keep pushing through it, trying to stay more mobile?
