I’m currently doing King’s Limping, and I’m in week 8. I have very good form doing squats and DLs (I’ve had numerous serious lifters watch me and give comments and all have been positive). In Phase III of this program I find that my back has been really sore after both squat and DL days. Is this natural when doing these lifts approaching your 1RM? I stretch for 15-20 mins prior to doing the workouts, and during I concentrate hard on keeping my abs tight, using my glutes/hams to do the lifting in DLs, and using the form described by King. Could it just be pulling from my hamstrings?
Any other suggestions?
Btw: in case it helps, all my squats and DLs during this phase have been 1 RM personal bests…I’m still pretty low in terms of what I can DL (285 lbs today with ease) compared to my squat (I dumped 360 lbs Tues because I lost concentration).
I appologize if this seems like a silly thread, I’m just trying to make sure that I’m not inviting injury.
