johnny5, help2001 and other OHsquatters

i am writing this post for 2 reasons:

#1 since 01/01/04 my back squat has gone from 80-100kg depending on how form was that day, to squatting 137.5kg yeasterday as a progress monitering session, and a new DL 1RM of 155kg. which is nice.

but
#2 i have started to get what i can only describe as a "shin splint" style pain running down the front of my lower tibia a couple of days after, this ceases after my active recovery swimm session. is it just doms? or should i put my feet wider apart??

my form on the OH+back squat has improved tenfold over te past 1+1/2 months but my stance is still very narrow, prolly shoulder width....could this be the cause???

thanks in advnce
rob

    usually running. sometimes rowing, and some swimming. althought the last 2 weeks have just been hill sprints. not been doing it with enough frequency to casue shin splints, never had them before and always take the necessary precautions [stretching, cooldown, strength training etc etc]. been running with a weighted bergen for years, so if i ain't got them by now i doubt i'll ever get them.

    but good suggestion. oddly enough though, i don't notice the pain when i'm running. only now and again when i'm sat down for a while and go to get up, oh, and straight after a set of OHsquats. itsnot very intense pain, more of a dull twinge.

    cool+thanks. well i'm glad that can be sorted. last thing, do i turn my feet out wide, or not? [the wider my stance the more i want to turn out my feet, to quite a large degree].

    it's probably the sprints if you havn't been doing them long, no amount of running will prepare you for the loading on the ankle stabilers involved in sprinting.

    Johnny: If you point your feet forward aren't you putting a lot of stress on your knees?
