Thread: hamstring weakness
8/18/2008 9:17pm, #1
Here's an odd one. I noticed a few weeks ago that my left hamstring is extremely weak, as in even light exercise will make it quiver and the lack of strength is noticeable for a couple of days after. At the Kuoshu tournament in Baltimore, I had to drop out of my last four divisions because I pulled a groin muscle trying to compensate. It's never sore, it's just weak. Unless I'm moving upwards, as in stairs or pushing up after kneeling, I don't notice it.
My concern is this. Had I pulled it, I would remember the injury. My fear is that it's a nerve problem, because it cropped up after the five hour plane ride to Baltimore. I've got an appointment with my doctor, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and, if so, what was it and how long did it last?
So far folks, middle age sucks.

Middle age is only old if your age starts with a 1. Or maybe a 2.......

Damnit. You were too slow, and they removed the two spam threads for viagra and erectile disfunction.

My main concern is that it's never done this before and it's been a month, and is only marginally better. We did some low key rope rescue training yesterday, and the only physical part of the exercise for me was climbing up and down a 40' rock face once. My leg shook all the way back to the rig.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

He's old, he won't know what's going on anyway.
