First thread on T-Nation.
bodyfat- unsure but my skinfold was 8 on stomach and 8 on back a year ago wrestling 152, a little more skin now but not a whole lot.
been a lifter since my freshman year of highschool…cant really count the first 2 years…so about 2 intelligently…
Squat - Unsure…have gotten 315 for reps in the past, not even close right now
Deadlift - 315
Barbell Row - 200 for 3
Chinups/Pullups - 15+/8 w/ 30lbs
Military Press - 165
Incline bench - 205 for 3
Bench - 245
For the past 6 months my goals have been to basically fix my muscles imbalances (delts/rear delts…chest/back…bis/tris…hams/quads) along with fixing my form in general and especially the big lifts. For the most part fix most of them but my chest is still lagging because shoulders are so dominant. Still working on it.
Currently suffering from what i believe is a strained bicep (idiotically attempted a one handed pullup and almost succeeded) and my left leg is acting up, hence the no actual squat numbers…I’m not blessed with anatomical nomenclature but its the lower inner thigh/knee area…if i had to guess i would say hamstring and/or groin? Unsure how it actually occured but it is somewhat uncomfortable to walk and i have to change my stride ive noticed…Ive attempted to let the leg heal without lifting but that causes it to hurt more so ive been doing relatively lift weight squats with 95lbs(i know) with parallel stance toes slightly outward i descend ass out first sit into it blah blah and it just feels off…Done static stretches and foam rolling of whole leg area hips hams quads glutes groin calves…its still bothering me attempted very light lying leg curls but the stretch was not comfortable at all almost felt unsafe…
My leg is clearly not unbearable but i just havent seen any progress. Any thoughts?
I’ve been rather down lately with my leg hurting and just upset with myself for no particular reason. I seem to never be satisfied with any progress I make with lifting or any of my goals for that matter. Of course that mindset is good to have in the longrun with this shit but no not sometimes. So I’m just curious if i downplay myself?
