I’ve got two issues to throw out to people here to see if anyone has had or heard of anything similar.
Right hamstring: For some reason, during the eccentric portion of a deadlift, even when getting into position, about halfway down, my right hamstring almost feels like it catches. I’m not really sure how else to describe it. The feeling’s right in the middle of the hamstring, so not near any joints, and really localized. It doesn’t really hurt, but is more of a weird feeling. I’ve had it for years and have deadlifted mid-400’s with it and it doesn’t affect the concentric at all. The main issue, apart from being a little disconcerting, is that I tend to shift to the left when lowering the weight, which isn’t great.
Left hip: Starting about two weeks ago, I’ve been getting a sharp pain/pinching in my hip. It doesn’t feel like a muscle strain. I immediately thought about an impingement, but there’s no pain during flexion. Rather, it occurs mainly with extension and with weight bearing. It’s also only occasional and a movement may be good 10 times, but cause pain the 11th, then be good again. I’m thinking this doesn’t rule out an impingement, but most things I read point to flexion based pain.
I’m going to work on some mobility for my hips over the next couple of weeks to see if that improves my hip before getting it checked out. For my hamstring, because it’s so specific, it’s really easy to work around, if I really want to.
Does anyone have any thoughts about either?
