I don’t have a coach to ask, and I have searched on here and google, so I decided that someone on here probably had the same problem as me, so maybe you guys can help me out.
I am getting this sharp pain that is located on the outside of my calves. It only happens when I go completely ATG when squatting, and only while squatting. I first got the pain a few weeks ago when I was in the middle of the Smolov routine. I have tried icing it and stretching all the time but nothing seems to help.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about “No pain, no gain,” but it is getting to the point that I just can’t tolerate it anymore.
I attached an image (not of me) with a red line showing you were I get the pain, and I hope it uploads correctly.
Some statistics that might help diagnose the issues: I use a low bar position with Adidas Olympic shoes, and I rarely exercise my calf muscles on there own.
So, has anyone else experienced this pain? Are my calves just too weak?
Thanks a lot.
