Since the start of my new Westside cycle about 6 weeks ago things have been going well. My lifts haven’t improved a ton, but that is mostly to do with my attempts to focus on fixing form, plus Im trying to cut flab right now also. Okay, so today I went to ME Squat, and my hips were so sore I had absolutely zero power out of the bottom. I probably don’t cycle excersizes as much as I should, but I feel because I lift so much less than the guys at westside and because my form is bad I could get away with it. I did ME squat for 2 weeks then ME deadlift the third, last week ME squat and tried ME squat today and it didnt go so well.
A typical week for lower body would look like this:
Tues: ME squat (max 350, have been working up to max set of 3), 3x3 @135 clean, 2 movements of 3x8-15 (dimels, back raises, pullthroughs or goodmornings), abs
Sat: DE Squat 10x2 @205, Dead 6x1 @205, clean 3x3 @135, 1 movement 3x8-15 of aforementioned movements, abs
So, anyone have any thoughts on why my hips hurt? Should I scale back volume, and if so where? How bout stance, would moving it in help? The problem with rotation occurs with the fact that next year at college and D3 football, the team doesn’t dead, they clean instead. I know i should dead some still as it is such a good strength builder, but I want my numbers up in the clean and squat as much as possible. (which is also a problem as my clean form is horrendous)
Sorry for the length of the post, but any tips would be greatly appreciated.
