I'm on Ed Coan week 4 now, and everything is fine (even the top set) until speed deadlifts.
It's somewhat of a sharp pain at the end of the set, in which I would have to quickly move out of the sumo position.
depending on what stage of pain you're at, I would back off the intensity and allow the inflammation ample time to recover.
prehabilitation is only purposeful before you actually strain a muscle, once you've strained that muscle, it needs to rest. Again, depending on the level of pain or stage of inflammation, i'd give it a day or two to rest.
After those few days of recovery, mobilize the muscle, lots of adductor stretching to ensure the muscle does not seize up and tear again. Play by ear on your first day back at training, perform an overwarm-up with your warm-up sets. What I like to do is do two sets of each warmup weight. The point of the warm-up is partly to increase blood flow to your muscle, but also to activate the muscle again after not having done it for several hours. It also primes your nervous system to fire efficiently before you work with heavier weights.
The faster you catch your injury before it gets worse, the shorter the recovery time. for future reference, i'd advise backing off intensity when you feel the slightest tweak in a muscle or joint. That way, you can hold of injuries and keep up with your training cycle for as long as you can. I'd stay away from "toughing out" an injury till it gets to a point of "sharp pain".
Weight training is very different from running a marathon - you can still run with lactic acid in your muscle and tough it out, but you theres no way in hell you're gonna deadlift several hundred pounds without a leg.
PS. speaking of injuries, i tweaked my shoulder from bench the other day, so I'm letting it rest up before i continue, and i'm following the same protocol as well.
This is a rough outline of the plan that helped Josh Morris bench 635 lbs raw at SHW, Mark Miller bench 510 lbs raw at 270 lbs, Ryan Sams bench 510 lbs at 266 lbs, and Weston Riddle bench 420 lbs raw at 219 lbs. This is also the bench plan I have been using since I have come back from my knee surgeries, and it has helped me bench an all time best 540 lbs raw weighing 284 lbs.
So I got told by the people i work with at my gym that i have "Chicken Legs" BUT I THINK MY LEGS ARE FINE .
Was just wondering if anyone has any tips on how to grow my legs bigger. I Do hit legs every week in my schedule and i have been seeing significant strength increases but no mass has been added. I Squat, leg press, calf raises Etc.. But cant seem to get any growth.
Was wondering if anyone has any experience with certain exercises that they could share. And ive also been told to switch up my routine and do different exercises such as Box jumps, Good Mornings and front squats.
