So, as I mentioned a few posts ago I injured myself recently.
I pulled or strained either part or the whole upper left glute. Right near my tailbone. It started as a twinge and moved on to PAIN. I think it started a few days prior: I was working out doing hip thrusts as I was at the end of week ten (10) of a twelve (12) week program: Strong Curves: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Better Butt and Body. I will have a review up for this book/program up shortly. This program is focused on women’s aesthetics in general and on the glute muscles in specific while still maintaining strength. Which is what I was looking for.
So, back to my injury. I am not *certain* what exactly happened but while finishing up week 10 (doing hip thrusts, 135 pounds) I got a horrible cramp running from my lower left waistline down to my left knee. I had to put the bar down and stretch and foam roll out the pain for more than five minutes before I could continue. Ouch! At the beginning of week 11 I noticed a twinge in my upper left glute. By the next day when working out it started to become pain. I finished up that workout…barely. Continue reading →
I *think* I sprained my upper left glute. *facepalm* How does this crap happen to me???
I hurt my wrist (now wearing a support wrap during workouts).
My left side IT Band has a knot from Hell in it.
My left neck hurts.
And I sprained a frickkin’ ass muscle. Da fuck? I didn’t even know you could do that.
It’s my left side riiight near the tailbone. It hurts every time I clench the muscle and/or I do a squat-like motion.
You can imagine what my 135lb parallel squat felt like this morning. Or the Barbell Hip Thrust. Acck!
My Physical Therapist (PT) wanted to smack me with something, lol. She was like, “You keep hurting yourself with these pelvic thrusts. Why can’t you do something less dangerous like bodyweight bridging or something?!”
I’ll just be the chick over here in the corner with an ice pack on her ass.
