Well I went to my natural health doc/chiro yesterday and he said my sacroiliac joint on my left side is just inflamed/strained a bit. He said it’s due to my left leg being a bit shorter than the right as well as the constant heavy usage I put my hips through in lifting. He gave me a wedge to put under my left heel, and I will say it makes quite a difference just walking around. My hips feel more ’square’ and level. That all being said, the joint is healing up quickly and I am not in much pain and more mobile today, but I still would not even think of benching with an arch, let alone squatting.

Today I just wanted to get in the gym and see if I could get some reps in on bench, despite the joint issue and tendonitis. I did all sets with a flat back, and most with my feet up. With my feet down I naturally cock my hips and my back doesn’t like that yet. I was pleased in that I was able to crank out the target goal of 5 doubles with 300 without my tendonitis flaring up all while using a flat-back, feet-up posture. After bench I did some back assistance, then some inclines. The inclines felt very solid and I did not have any shoulder irritation. Good salvaged workout overall despite not being able to squat.
