    No, did not feel the hamstring all that much while rowing, though there certainly are movements that bring out the hurt.

But, I was too close to the rack and one of the plates banged off the rack, sending the bar flying back at my shins. Luckily, I hopped over it and it crashed into the bench behind me. Unluckily, I tore a left hamstring with that hop and it's now in pretty shit shape. But this, of course, did not stop me from continuing on.
    No video??

    Don't do shit that threatens to derail the deadlift train.

    Right away, on the first empty bar rep, there was a sharp pain in my right hip joint right where the adductor tendons are. Thinking it was just a weird thing & would go away, I kept going. Nope, not today. I don't know what the hell's going on there, but it sure does suck.

    Started doing bunches of light RDL to work on the hamstring yesterday. I really could use a knee flexion machine thing, but don't have access to one.

    Tweaked my back stripping the bar. Guess I'll see how it goes from here. Several hurt things adding up seem to be telling me I should take it lighter for a little while.

    Back was sore here, but not super bad. Prolly should have rested though.

    Had no idea if these would go. Right hip was fine, so I don't know what the hell was going on the other day. The back started to get twitchy at 195 so I just stayed there instead of going up another 20. Overall my back still hurts, but it feels better than it did before lifting, so maybe that's a plus.
