Damn sorry about the hip pain Ron! I had a piriformis injury a few years back for around 6 months. John had me try a very slight deliberate knee cave coming out of the hole. I did this for about a month of squats and my pain disappeared and was able to go back to normal squatting driving the knees out with no pain at all. Give it a try, may work for you.

Hope the pain goes away quickly. You this is an "old" forum cause it seems that every journal is filled with "I lifted this but something else hurts"  :-\ although the maturity level is somewhat better.

Your bench and other lifts are looking good for sure. How are you liking tsa so far?

thanks guys.  I have to force my knees out in order to make depth and I did find myself caving that knee to reduce the pain coming out of the hole.

I'm feeling better about the bench pressing lately and more confident I'll make all the reps down the line with the program.

Another strong session Ron. Looks like you'll be passing me in the next couple days. I like the every other day though. Plenty of rest in between.

Played around with some goblet squats and bar-only high bar squats just to move the hips.  My mobility sucks and I have trouble hitting depth even with my Adidas powerlift2 shoes for highbar.  Good news is my hip didn't hurt today.  I'm going to give it until next week and then back track a bit before squatting again.  I"m considering doing highbar for the next go round.  The weights will be considerably lower than my low bar, but that should be more room for improvement and maybe I'll even make my chicken legs grow.
