First off, I want to say thanks to all the people on here. I've never really posted here before, but I've been reading the articles and posts for the past 6 months or so, and I have gotten a shitload bigger and stronger. I can't believe i never knew about face pulls. Anyway...
I squat ass to the grass with about 245 for my 4 sets of 6-8. I dont feel very stable while unracking the bar, i shuffle a lot. Once i get situated, I'm fine. Also I have a lot of lower back pain when I do good mornings and SLDL.
My form is good, my problem is (i think) that I don't really work out abs. My abs got really big when I worked out when I was younger, so I have left them alone. They are really strong, but I have never done any oblique work or anything like that. The articles I read are calling for like 15 sets of core exercises. I do an upper/lower split twice a week with all heavy compund lifts, and by the time I'm done abs are far from my mind.
So my question is if you guys could choose 1 or 2 exercises that i could use to complement my workout what would they be? I have also read that lifting heavy will build your core without extra work. Thanks.
