For most people a pull is more annoying then motion limiting. As you get lower you would feel more like “I don’t want to do this” rather then my body wont’ let me go any lower. A tear of course would be more painful.
Yes, this sounds like a description of it. I could go lower but I dont want to. I just now tried to squat and while not really painful, it feels like my body is just saying “Dont go there” I just know tried to go into a squat and it is feeling better than it did yesterday. I dont know what to make of that. I keep hoping that it’s not a real pull but just a sore that will recover in a few days.
Well, I can feel it a little bit even when I am not lifting. It is not painful but sort of sore and noticeable.
I had in mind doing power cleans or snatches…in other words, practice the moves but without going into anything more than, say, a quarter squat at most (if that).
Adductor and abductor machines, eh? Never used them but I guess there is a first-time for everything. Hey, I dont mind if it will help me get over this more quickly.
I guess that it is possible that they are super tight. As I said before, until my recent foray into Olympic Lifting, my squats went pretty low, well below parallel, but not “ass to the grass”. So it could be the case that the muscles on the top of the thigh were not being fully played before.
Posted on here and youtube is an excellent assortment of squat warmups and accessory exercises. I think its Squat RX something maybe about 10 clips try going though that and you should be ok. [/quote]
Thanks for all of your kind and valuable advice. I will be sure to check out that article.
