So my left hip has been a bit dodgey for a while, but recently (last 4-5 weeks or so) seems to have got a hell of a lot worse. Few thoughts on this, thinking maybe my quads are pulling it out of position and hamstrings are too weak. This is due to things that have changed in the past few weeks, which may be the cause of the sudden increase in pain/problems;
Moved squatting from low bar to mid bar, by this I mean mid bar is probably what most peoples low bar is, but when I do low bar for me it's even lower. This means more quad work and less glutes and hamstrings
Tweaked my lower back a while back, stopped doing my defecit stiff legged deadlifts on Saturdays for 3 sessions which equates to essentially 4 weeks without them, meaning less glutes and hamstrings once again. Back is better now (I hope/think) so back to doing them.
Today I did some hamsting curls, did 6 sets of 10 on 50kg, whereas on leg extensions in the past I've managed 90kg (maxed out machine) for 20 reps in a row. Major strength defecit in hamstrings?
Doing deadlifts I've been finding more and more I've been pulling quite far forward, so once more using quads more.
I know that this somewhat of a hard question but could this be the reason or a contributor to hip problems? Anyone else experienced something like this? I am hopefully seeing a physio in a weeks time but just thought I'd throw my thoughts out there.
