I’m extremely inconsistent on these forums, but I thought this would be worth mentioning.
Long story short, I messed up my back pretty bad about 5 years ago, through trial and error I managed to get back into training, and be able to maintain physical labor jobs. However no matter what I do, I always seem to have a nagging lower back pain after heavy deadlifts, pretty much right in my cheek, and directly on my tail bone. (And I love deadlifts, so that kind of sucks)
I kind of just muscled though my last routine, never got worse, but consistently had the same pain afterwards.
Well I just started my new program, and today was:
Back Hyper 2 x 12
Deadlift 4 x 8
Incline Bench 4 x 8
Single Leg Glute Bridge 2 x 12
DB Flys 3 x 10
And after deadlift (4 x 8 x 305, huge accomplishment for me by itself) my back had that same ache. It lingered until I did the glute bridges. Then the pain completely subsided, and has been 100% since.
Considering I pretty much always have some sort of ass pain, I’m assuming there is some notable imbalance in my posterior chain, but this seemed to hit the spot. Or maybe the hypers just prepared my back for the abuse, idk.
Thought I’d throw it out there for anyone with a similar issue. Now to just find the magic cure for my shoulder. (Jokes)
