I am not going to try and diagnose your injury but rather give you some things to try. Since I am somewhat familiar with your training, these are some simple suggestions:
- Knowing you, there is no way on Gods green earth you are going to stop squatting so try to modify it. Run your hands all the way out and hold onto the collar, keeping your hands against the weights.
- Try riding the bar on your traps rather then in the trap grove.
- If you are not doing it, stretch your shoulders out during your warm up and under the bar prior to each set.
- I think this one is important regardless of your situation; make sure you take the day off before squatting.
- For now, it wont hurt to avoid sticking anything in your delt area.
- This is a last resort, short of the â??Just don’t do thatâ?? advice, and it sucks. Try to reverse your grip when you squat. I know, NFW but it may still let your put weight on your back.
Sorry to see you posting here bro, things were going well for you. Trust me on this, the hardest part of dealing with an injury goes on in your head. I seriously think this is just an overuse situation and it will slowly fade away if you figure out what caused it. You did take some time off after that meet a few weeks back, right?
Every boxer has a plan until he’s hit. It’s how you deal with being hit that will determine the outcome.
