Hey Vag, I've been IT band rolling as well although not as consistent because mine is going away or rather the pain/soreness is diminishing. I found a YouTube vid that suggested to actually find a tender spot and kind of stay there but without rolling just staying still for 20 or so seconds for the myofascia to release then rolling over back and forth. So thats kinda what I been doing, I also think that the mag-10 I bought from t-nation has helped with recovery as well, but that's probably a personal preference. Too bad it's expensive as ****... Hope it goes away for ya.
Goal

windmill consistently/ touch top of the square consistently



weight= 193
height= 6'3 1/2
highest touch= top of the square, which is 11'4

Lance , what would be a 'typical' IT band foam rolling sets/reps/duration scheme?

I am doing 3x10 slow back and forth rolls each side. That would be slowly roll from hip to knee, then slowly roll back to hip ( slowing down where i feel more sensitivity ) , repeat 10 times.
Then the other side, then 2-3 mins rest, repeat 2 more times.


I would stick with what youre doing, thats pretty good as is.  On days when youre not as "tight", you can cut the volume in half.
Relax.

Lance/adarqui, what is your opinion about using the leg press for quad strain rehab? Currently i am doing single leg extensions, 4x15 with a 2:2:2 tempo.
Current plan is:
Monday : back squat
Wednesday : RDL + rehab
Friday : front squat
I was thinking i could possibly replace one of the 2 weekly squatting days with leg press until i am at 100% , currently it feels like i am at 90-95%. It feels like i am trapped in a never ending cycle that  i  squat, go down to 90%, recover to 95% until next squat session and all over again.

 Try it and see how it goes.  Ive had the most luck using single leg pistols to a box when it came to quad issues with squatting, its usually a weakness in one leg at the root of the issue.  Use it one leg at a time for sure, if it feels like its healing stay with it.
Relax.

Now that's interesting. I use box pistols as a recovery evaluation, when they don't hurt at all i consider quad is above 95%.
I will use box pistols to evaluate if i should squat from now on. Pain in pistol => replace squat with SL leg press.
Thanks!

Are the quads really that active during pistols? I swear I get very little quad activity when I pistol squat on my left leg (using good technique) and a ton of quad activity when I pistol squat on my right leg, with bad technique.

^^^ how is that possible? your knee should be in greater flexion during a pistol than it'd be during a squat.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

try doing some RDL's to get that left quad active then.






 In all seriousness what youre saying is your left glute fires more during the pistol, and that gives the impression the quad isnt working that much (it is) only not as much as it would require had the glute not done its part.
Relax.

Yeah I know, but my knee really doesn't travel all that much when I do them. I does travel forwad obviously but not that much. I think it travels more in a high bar squat.
