Last evening, during my first set of power cleans, I got this incredible pain on both sides of my butt, right where the curvy part meets the back of my legs (I am a female, if it helps with the visual).
It was a fairly light weight, about 60% of my 1RM, and I had done a decent warmup prior to this set.
I could barely move at first, but after about five minutes the pain was gone, and replaced by a mild stinging sensation, still on both sides.
I lowered the weight some and was eventually able to continue my workout, but this incident scared the hell out of me.
Can anyone help diagnose what this may be? I am thinking it was just a muscle spasm, but I am scheduled to try a new personal record in the deadlift on Saturday, and now I am kind of hesitant.
Thanks for any input
