    Today wasn’t a good day. I’m walking like I’ve had too much to drink. Can’t even walk a straight line. Won’t find much motivation here ugh.

    If anyone knows a really smart, experienced strength coach who is willing to think outside the box AND work for pennies, have them DM me.

    I’m putting up the white flag. Out of ideas

    Thanks, Curt. It appears I need to find a different approach. I just don’t know what else to try at this point. Stem cell grafting for the spine AND hip? An MD, PT, or strength coach who has already made it in their career and doesn’t need the money, who could coach me through this, would be great at this point.

    Perhaps a step away from powerlifting? Olympic lifts, cross fit, a return to hypertrophy training?

    Thanks for the ideas, Curt.

    If I could do any sort of Olympic lift that’d be a feat! LOL! Sitting and walking are the two biggest culprits. If I could stop doing those I’d probably be ok. Overhead pressing is out of the question (I do it seated and very light, for me) and I have yet to find a squat variation that I can do consistently. Leg extensions, leg curls, and weighted calf training all feel awful because of the position - ANY position- and my trashed knees don’t help matters. Plus it’s hard to train lower body when all you feel in your legs and feet is numbness and tingling.

    I’m still doing hypertrophy training for body parts other than legs and low back

    Tuesday 6/11 - upper body thangs

    Mobility work & dynamic stretches

    DB external rotation, elbow on knee:
    4 x 25 x 8 each side - PR!
    ^someone started using the 20s as I walked up and in my condition I wasn’t about to go walk to the other DB rack and grab another pair of 20s so naturally it was an excuse to PR LOL

    Cable external rotation:
    4 x 10 x 10

    Bench press (competition style): all reps paused with a 2 count
    bar x 10
    2 x 77 x 5
    99 x 5
    116 x 5
    4 x 121 x 4 - these went BEAUTIFULLY! Very pleased! Check out the video on Instagram if you want it looks great!

    Wide grip pullups:
    4 x BW x 5

    Seated “Y” press:
    4 x 20s x 8

    Incline DB press ss chest supported DB row:
    30s x 8 ss 30s x 8 (4 rounds)

    Incline DB fly ss reverse DB fly ss seated DB lateral raise:
    15s x 12 ss 15s x 12 ss 10s x 12 (4 rounds)[/QUOTE]

    So yeah walking and sitting are awful these days. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the pain or numbness or tingling in my lower half. Walking and sitting seem to set it off. Lifting in any rep range doesn’t. I have to strategically plan my trips to the bathroom far more than I’ve ever had to consider a max squat attempt. Go figure

    I had similar issues with my hip where I could hardly bend over and going to the bathroom was a painful ordeal just to sit down and get up.

    My only cure was to stop doing the things that aggravated it which included squats and doing too much running/walking

    I do light leg work on the machines and have not had an issue since. I am tempted to try light squats but why ruin a good thing.

    Hang in there Sunny, saying prayers you'll find the answer. The tingling is something I didn't suffer from in my legs but had that issue in my right arm. It's gone now but I can totally understand trying to exercise a body part when you can't feel it working.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Mac

    Once I figure out what IS aggravating it I’ll definitely stop doing that. So frustrating when I can’t pinpoint it. I’ll get there eventually

    Wednesday 6/12 - lower body stuff

    looooong thorough warmup but it went well

    Bulgarians:
    4 x BW x 10/leg holding onto rack for help with balance

    Squats:
    3 x bar x 5
    3 x 77 x 5
    3 x 99 x 5 - video posted on Instagram. Looked good
    not a lot of weight but I squatted so there’s that. The walkout sucked butt though. Just a few moments ago I came up with a way to modify the walkout so I’ll be trying it on Friday. Fingers crossed

    Sumo deads:
    these sucked butt too, just couldn’t get a good feel until the very last pull and then I ran out of time. At least SOMETHING got moved
    10 x 138 x 1 - with whatever time I needed to get my head back together for the next pull

    would have done more but ran out of time
