: You were given bad advice. believe me, I'm not perfect, but weight machines are WORTHLESS for this
: kind of problem. 4 walls and gravity are all you need (actually, forget the 4 walls). You need RANGE
: of MOTION, which come from stretch and strengthening.
: 1)butterfuly (adducter stretch)
: 2) two kness over (rock side to side).
: 3) Pretzle stretch
: 4) Pirformis stretch (hard)
: 5) knees to chest
: 6) One knee to chest, one flat
: 7) push ups (back)
: 8) standing hamstring
: 9) standing inner thigh stretch
: 10) chair lunge (down on one knee like I am proposing - raise back leg,
: slightly bent, and push forward)
: 11) calf stretch
: 12) standing piriformis stretch
: 13) trunk rotation using broomstck behind neck, knees bent like a hockey player.
: Then, i do exercise (5) that work on strength and range of motion.
: Sounds like your pain is really bad - I think the biggest thing with Hip problems is that
: pretty much you're condemmed to joint replacement unless you can reverse your symptoms.
: Two books and a coach (web master, I have no vested interest except to help this guy out) that
: are great:
: "Heal your Hips" Amazon and "On being Hip" Amazon. You MUST make an effort to do these EVERYDAY
: to see results.
: If you commit to a program, progress will be slow, but just remember..you're like me..we have no
: choicce to fight this. It pains me to think that you think doing squats will benefit you -at least
: right now. If you can't even put your shoes on, you have to start doing the right things right away.
