I recently discovered I have a muscle imbalance near my spinal
erectors after throwing a disc out of place deadlifting. The right
side has slightly more mass on one side.
So I've recovered and decided to take it a bit easier with squats and
barbell deadlifting by replacing them with single leg squats/pistols
and single leg dumbbell deadlifting. I'm getting good workouts, but
looking to improve.
Been doing high volume goblet squats, looking in the mirror I have
somewhat imperfect form where I'm inclined to place the load greater
on one leg than the other, and one side of the hip is inclined to go
lower probably has to do with muscular imbalance.
I was able to correct the form visually with the mirror only when
doing goblet squats. I sure as hell can't correct the form with the
poundage of a full barbell and back squats though
Here are my questions:
What do you guys think about front squatting or OH squats with this
prior condition? How would you rectify evening out the muscle mass and
I just moved to a high-rise condo, they have their own gym downstairs
(this is hardcore as I don't have to go to another gym, but they don't
have a power rack, and only the shorter 5ft, 25lb barbells & a smith
Should I buy a full Olympic barbell lug it out, and do some squats out
in the grass? I've been thinking it's worth the purchase.
