So, since my left leg and hip pain seemed to be gone this weekend, I decided to get back into heavy deadlifting today and did real good, btw. I ended my deadlift session with a 290 lb. heavy single finally. My left leg and hip pain came back a little bit after this but not as bad as it was before. Maybe I should have waited to let it heal fully before jumping right back into heavy lifting again. I’m proud of the lift but I think my deadlift startup might be off a little and I gotta figure out a way to make the hips to stop rising first. Maybe that’s why I got the hip pain ’cause of that?
I’m still proud of today, though and was glad I was able to smash a 290 lb. single finally. It made me realize that I didn’t lose any strength at all. I guess it was the minor leg injury that was holding me back.
Welp… back to settling down on the lower body work until everything heals completely. I thought it was all fully healed ’cause it felt like it. Guess I should have given it more time. Oh well, I killed it today on deadlift and was still proud of the session either way.
