I just started block 1 week 1 of BTA part 2.
Monday: high density
A1) squat hold to parallel
A2) bodyweight squat
This superset literally annihilates my lower back before my legs get properly fatigued. I tried holding my backpack zercher style or wear it like a baby backpack (on the chest). Still the long TUT of this superset leads to an excruciating burning sensation in my lower back, forcing me to stop the exercise prematurely.
I’m a long legged/short torso lifter and I use a squat board to stay relatively upright during squats. Any suggestions for making this exercise less painful and more leg effective?
I fill my backpack with bricks (4kg each) to achieve proper intensity for the exercise. Wearing it on my back would force me to lean forward, which puts the tension on my glutes/lower back. Otherwise I would just fall backward.
BTA part 1 was amazing (especially the isometric days, I love those burns!). I want to make part 2 even better
