I have had this on and off for a couple months and I was hoping some of you could give some insight/advice on some pain I’m experiencing. Here goes:
My right hamstring (which is also my weaker leg) constantly hurts when doing squats, lunges, one legged leg press…The pain is in the area where my glute and hamstring meet and the pain feels really sharp (different from the cramps of DOMS). I only feel it in my right leg when I do certain leg exercises, i.e. doing lunges (right knee down). There is no pain when I do lunges with my left knee down and the pain doesn’t radiate to any other part of my body. It usually occurs when I try to straighten from a lunge/squat and I only feel it intermittently. I asked my PT about this b/c I thought I might be doing something wrong but he said he liked my form.
I was doing stationary lunges the other day and the pain made it nearly impossible for me to continue and this pain prevents me from doing various exercises as effectively as if the pain was not there. I’ve never really injured this part of my body before.
I would just like the pain to go away so that I can continue on with my training without this at the back of my mind.
What do you think is the problem and how can I fix it? Also, what do you think caused it? I always warm up with cardio first for 10-15 minutes so my body is already warm…
Your help/advice is much appreciated!!!
