Left hip is really bothering me since Friday’s session – chiro, yesterday, said my IT band is strained where it connects to my hip. Deads felt ok but could tell I didn’t have a new 1rm in me – hip was holding me back, more mentally than anything. Did hit some PRs on the elevated SLDLs though. They seem to hit that IT band more than anything so either I have to dial back the intensity on them, or drop them for a while. Started doing weighted ab/adduction work to correct any muscular imbalances my hips might have, in the meantime.
