    This has been added in attempt to deal with appears to be bicep tendonitis according to my coach.

    For any older gent following this thread some back ground detail is important.

    On March 3 2021 I injured my left hamstring during the squat. I was programmed @ 220 3s x 5r. My coach programmed me down to 45lbs 3s x 25 reps for my next workout - March 5. I believe what he was doing was implementing the "Starr Protocol". We continued to let the leg heal gradually adding weight and by May 24 (about 12 weeks) I was at 245lbs 5s x 3r when I noticed extreme pain in my right hamstring and glute. I was nervous about repeating the injury to the left hamstring and requiring another 12 weeks of healing so my coach dropped the weight back down to 210lbs 3s x 3r for the May 26 workout and as the leg was not healing we dropped down to 190lbs 5s x 3r for the June 2 session. But unfortunately the leg was not responding so for my next workout - June 4 we found a weight that we felt we could rebuild from: 115lbs 3s x 5r. I should also note that my DL went down as well during these injuries.

    Now the point of all this is that here on Sep 6 2021 the leg continues to cause trouble and seems to be stubbornly stuck which is why my routine is changing. After the Aug 30 workout, I commented to my coach that the leg was not coming along and pain was intensifying again. On that date I was back up to 220lbs on the squat.

    Injuries are part of this I guess. Frustrating to be sure, but at this point all I can do is continue to press forward as best I can. My coach has moved me to a 4 day split routine. Another issue I am working through is what appears to be tendonitis in my shoulders and biceps.

    Box Squat: 100lbs 3s x 3r
    Rack Pull: 255lbs 1s x 3r

    For sure, I don't like the setbacks but there isn't much I can do but to work through them. I noticed in your posts you sleep in your recliner. I do same. My reason is osteoarthritis in neck. I assume you have arthritic issues as well?

    No luckily, just I seem to tweak my ribs/torso real good with heavy squats. Into the recliner I go until I can sleep in the bed again.

    Until a person begins its difficult to appreciate how much we use this area in the squat. Hopefully you heal up soon.
