Yesterday I did the buttwink routine with some banded hip stretches and it clonked a few times slightly, and after the workout I had this deep glute pain.
Let’s assume I have hypermobile hip joint, maybe I should stop working with bands on my hips completly?
So what can I do? Taking the muscle to endrange in a static Fashion should also be avoided right?
Yesterday I trained legs again after a almost 2 months period of stretching and resting and I couldn’t even low-bar sumo squat 135 Pounds. This adductor/hamstring interfere is so weak, maybe that’s why it’s so tight?
After that I did rear-leg elevated deep lunge isometrics. In the back leg it felt like my femur is pushing against the front of my hip pocket, even when flexing the glute.
And the third point is, when I try to reach my toes cold sometimes I miss 6 inches, but then I contract my glutes hard for a few seconds and I can touch my toes without much of a problem.
So maybe I should stop working with bands and stop stretching into endrange statically. But work on strength in end-range and do only dynamic stretching and smashing?
