Was I not ready, sick, or just got my ass kicked?
Up to now I’ve ramped up to a set of “5RM”. Yesterday I did the advanced version of this:
I’ve been doing the intermediate version. However yesterday not only was my back completely fried (previous muscle pull years ago from drunken shennanigans, may or may not have a slip disc) after 3 sets but during one I was falling forward for a rep or two.
Now this is the first time I’ve ever done this much volume and using Thibaudeau’s suggestions for warming up I feel I could of finished the sets but I was out of it from this cold.
Am I not ready for this much volume? Is my lower back/core not strong enough? Should I start using a belt?
