    my physio says i shouldn't squat or deadlift or military press until i get my SI joint issue sorted. basically any exercise that puts stress on the SI joint is a no-no. i was on week 5 of a 9wk Bill Starr program so this sucks. routine calls for squatting, DL and benching 3 times a week. i guess i'm wondering what my options are. for back i guess i could do pull/chin ups, chest supported and/or seated rows. instead of standing military i suppose seated will have to do. what about legs? would leg presses and NGHR put pressure on the SI joint?

    i suppose so. it's just that the doctors i talk to don't seem to know much about lifting weights and what not. i've tried to locate a decent sports doctor in my area but we fail at sports around here.

    What happened to your SI joint? Without knowing much about it, what kind of issues are you having?

    Talk to a physical therapist. They most likely have an answer for you + a routine for good recovery.

    the right side of my hip isn't moving the way it's supposed to. i get a sharp pain in the middle of my right thigh everytime i kick a ball when i play soccer. before this everyone suspected my PSOAS so i static stretched it as much as i could. didn't seem to help so i tracked down the physio of (supposedly) one of the better soccer clubs where i am and yeah, he says SI joint and no deads or squats until it's sorted out.

    here lifting is limited to bodybuilders. i don't know any other soccer players where i am that actually lift. it's pretty homo.

    where are you from that finess and nutrition is considered "homo"? Soccer players should always be doing some sort of lower body workout.

    i'd say leg presses are probably ok depending on how bad it is, leg extensions and curls you can do.

    one of my instructors mentioned the soccer players get SI joint problems from kicking balls, nice to see maybe he isn't a moron

    well i think the USA is different in regards to that. I know it's a strict no-no in European countries for a soccer player to be lifting.

    I wouldn't do leg extensions. They put too much stress on the knee. I haven't been able to squat for years because leg extensions messed up my right knee. FML
