I started doing Sumo Deadlifts to try to increase my posterior chain strength and correct my anterior pelvic tilt, as recommended in Mike Robertson’s recent “Hips Don’t Lie” article. (Thanks, Mike.)
I did 2 sumo deadlift sessions in 2 weeks with pretty heavy weight (for me) and then some sprinting last weekend.
Since then, I’ve developed some pain in my left leg/hip joint. If I stand straight up with toes pointing forward and really push my hips forward by flexing my glutes, I don’t have any pain. But if I point my toes at a diagonal angle away from each other and do the same thing, the pain shows up.
Anyone know what I hurt and how I can make it better?
Also, is there something I’m doing wrong that is causing this? Maybe my sumo stance is too open?
Thanks a lot.
