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.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
