So, quick overview, I have spondylolithesis and a shorter left leg (very minor)/visually my hips are uneven heights. I was front squatting/trap bar deadlifting for a while without issues but really wanted to try a routine where I could really load the weights.
Started Stronglifts 5x5 and as the back squat weight increases my lower left back (shorter leg side) is very painful and my left glute/hamstring have been so tight I can barely bend over unless I warm up and foam roll. Feels similar to sciatica I'd assume. When I get out of bed it's bad enough that I can barely extend my whole leg for the first minute being awake.
My question is, are backsquats just never going to be right with uneven legs? Or is there some specific prehab movements I can do to augment this? I have access to foam rollers/lacrosse ball on 2 breaks during work that I can work on this. I do have very tight hamstrings and overall poor flexibility but have made some strides in last few weeks.
Let me know if you can suggest anything!
Thanks a lot
