So I received my MRI results from the other day, and it appears that I do indeed have femoroacetabular impingement with two tears in my labrum as well as a small focus of chondral breakdown on my acetabulum. Not good. My goal right now is to avoid hip flexion activities as much as possible while preserving as much muscle as I can. So no good mornings, romanian deadlifts or squats/leg presses even close to depth until I have a surgical intervention on my labrum and femoral head. I do not want to damage my articular cartilage any more than I already have. In a lot of chronic pain right now. Hoping that the triamcinolone injection kicks in soon.

Steroid shot has worked wonders this past week. My pain is greatly reduced, though I will not let this lull me into a false sense of security. I know the damage is there. Happy to have some relief, but I am not going to introduce any hip flexion movements until I have the surgery.

Good week of work here at home since I last logged. Job has kept me pretty busy. Hip is still in bad shape, and some days are worse than others. Doing everything I can to work around it. I have no GHR machine at home so I have been doing seated leg curls with some reverse hyperextensions to supplement in order to get a proper stimulus. Using isolation exercises has led to some pretty outlandish set volumes for each session.
