So after a less than stellar visit with the orthopedic doctor yesterday to address some severe back pain, the result of which turned out to be a pinched sciatic nerve (could be worse I suppose), I have been instructed to lay off deadlifting for awhile until I get my core strength up and let my back heal. I was prescribed a steroid and told to lose some belly fat.
I am now on a new mission to lose weight. I am going to clean up my diet and eat a little less and focus heavily on core strength and conditioning to get in better shape as i am overweight.
My question is: what would be the best way to go about this in terms of my 5/3/1 template? I am currently working my way through a 6 week BBB template. Should i stick with that and substitute deads for something else or switch to a different perhaps more applicable template?
Thanks for the help, guys.
