Bummed to hear about your hip pain. Will you or have you sought medical attention or physiotherapy for it?
I work at a prison, and I use the prison gym, very old equipment, but right now, all I have access to. 2 olympic bars with way too many miles on them, one is bent about 2 inches in the middle. There were no dumbells, only barbells and plates, but 1 guy brought some DB's in from his home, 20, 25, 30, and 40, oh yeah, there is ONE 50 lb and ONE 55 lb.....
The hip pain is arthritis, right hip joint and lower back. the lower back hurts most of the time, but is manageable. USUALLY the hip pain is also, meaning I can still squat pretty decent, and it hurts later, but last night....just hurt too much while actually doing them.
