Please can someone help me. I have been looking into the 5x5 stronglifts, and I am keen to get started as I need to get in shape, and I like the look of the results. I have difficulty doing squats because I was born with half dislocated hip joints. I have had surgeries to deepen the sockets, and recently found out that I need a hip replacement because the top of my bone 'has died and worn away'. I can do a few easy ones, but definitely struggle with lunges. Should i just start with light squats and build up, or should I just avoid these altogether? I am worried about using heavy weights with squats in case my hip dislocates. They already click and pop. Is there anything else I can do to get the same results without doing squats? I know the squats are an important part of the routine, but want the results and the strength. Thanks for any advice.
