About me : I have been working out more or less continuously for close to 2 years, and may be called an recent intermediate trainee. I squat close to 1.5 times my bodyweight, reaching my bodyweight in Bench press and powerclean. Dint quite measure up conventional deadlift lately.
The problem : I have ITBS on my right leg on the outer side of the knee. How do I know it — I had it on my left leg late July. Took about 2 months off from lower body work ( actually did not work out at all for a lot of days)
Did a lot of stretches and other rehab work, and I was back to squatting my previous max by early October.
The condition I have now is exactly the same as I had before, so hopefully I can get out of the injury soon.
The question : While squats and conventional deadlifts are out of question, can I still train my glutes and hams with hip thrusts, DB RDLs( where DB stays above the knees), good mornings etc ? I did not feel the stiffness or the pain when I tried these movements, but is it advisable to still keep doing them ?
My posterior chain anyway needs work, and I am not particularly fond of working only upper body for 2 months.
