So I've been reading through my March edition of RW and on pages 62-63 there are 5 gym exercised which apparently can help with various body chemistry issues, such as boosting testosterone for muscle building etc.
Anyway, I was about to attempt the Dumbbell Deadlift and deciding I should get my form correct before I get started and have found I cannot squat. As I lower myself making sure there is plenty of flexibility in my hips and trying to keep my back straight, I just cannot keep my heels on the ground. Not good.
I have a feeling this may be because I have tight hamstrings and calves, would this be a reasonable assumption? Baring in mind my osteopath has historically told me that I do tend to get very tight hamstrings and so should focus on these quite a bit.
What does everyone else think? Is this likely to be my main cause? I'm doing the whole solid not soft sole shoes and feet at roughly 40 degree angle pointing outwards. Until I figure this out i'm going to stay away from the actual lifting, the last thing I need right now is unneccessary injury.
