Exactly 2 months ago I strained a ligament or something in my right hip. After a DE chain squat workout, the next day I could not walk. It took about a week to walk without severe pain. I did no leg work for 2 weeks and slowly started up again. Today I full squatted 275 for 4 reps and 315 for 2 reps with no belt, wraps, etc. Last month I was squatting the bar in pain. Now, I would say I’m about 75% recovered (my squat before was 405 or so). I still lack flexibility in my hips but I’m working on it (thanks Coach Davies for the hip mobility movements).
I’d also like to mention that I tried Coach’s “Bear” complex and it is quite intense. I managed 95 lbs. for 3 x 5. My goal is 135 in 8 weeks. I’m also now able to do glute ham raises w/out assistance. Meaning, I can almost lower myself completely to the ground without bracing w/ my hands. I hope to have this mastered in 8 weeks as well.
