I don't currently have much problems with my hips however my father was a long time powerlifter squatting well over 600 pounds but he had to have his right hip replaced at 40 years old. Supposedly, he had a genetic defect with his hips but I'm thinking squatting over six hunderd pounds didn't help much either. I'm afraid I've inherited the genetic defect and the love of powerlifting. So I want to achieve similar powerlifting goals without the fake hip in the future. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas to help me out so I don't get stopped at the airport metal detector because of a fake hip.
My current thinking is to invest in some good squat briefs to help my hips but any other suggestions or ideas on hip health would be greatly appreciated.
