i’ll ask my 3 questions straight up before i start ranting
- what are the warning signs that one might slip a disk
- anybody else feel it in their lower back squatting 3x a week and dling? not pain or even pressure, but just feel it?
- if i worked up to 87.5% of my 5rm on deadlift, chickened out at the last second before doing 100% cause of a lil back pain, how long should i give it to heal?
yea so wed i was warming up, and 135, one thirty frickin five felt tough on my back, like my back was stiff and didn’t wanna cooperate. at 162, i have no problem squatting 265 for reps and did that on mon. i check my form like CRAZY all thes fuckin morons out there i see, none of em do it right, either cause they quartersquat, bend the hell out of their knees without going paralell, or round their back.
I do NONE of these; in fact sometimes im extra paranoid and think im using too much weight cause i dont feel im going deep enough when i go below paralell. deadlifting… i do that on wed (bill starr 5x5 just ended the 4week warmup). I do em sumo style. again, i was taught the correct way to do those, and i’ve had old lifters come up and TELL me (and then recommend wrist wraps, no ty).
I do a sumo stance particulary cause i feel it puts less pressure on the lower back and i never had a problem with it. i had the form right and everything, 135 came up like air, no problem. 265 however, started causing a lil pain. now i dont know if i screwed up my form that one time, though i KNOW i screwed it up last week.
some one got too close to the bar so i leaned to the right a lil away from them and readjusted my feet. obviously leaning is bad, but im pretty sure i realigned myself right or i woulda felt it right then and there.
today, the day after my back feels fine now… no lifting till omorrow of course heavy squats and powercleans. i just grabbed the soles of my toes straightlegged; no problems. i stretch a lot btw, in order to prevent injury. story’s over; questions are on the top of the page.
i just really hope with all the idiots in my gym and their apathy and lethargy and shoddy form and wuss techniques, that IM not the one that gets called on bad form or whatever the **** that was.
