Hi again. I've started BBB now and recovered from injury. I visited therapist today and we found some classic problems when doing squats and DL's: such as anterior rotation in pelvis and weakness in the abs.
I did my first day of BBB (DL +5 and squat 5x10) yesterday, did not feel too rough. My dl sets we're all stopped but done with relatively poor form (I also managed pull only 5 reps at the final set). Also the squatting felt unstable, specially in the last sets. This was yesterday, so I probably used quite ugly form in squats too when I got tired.
So, how much I should drop weights in these movements compared to pre-injury now when I'm:
(1) re-learning the techniques in both movements,
(2) learning to use my abs correctly,
(3) have been avoiding heavy squatting/deadlifting for a month?
PS. And hey Jim? In the forum you said that you don't recommend BBB for beginners. If I drop my weights significantly I'll be doing close to novice level weights? Would just some FSL work suit me better then for a half a year or so when I'm catching up my old strength levels?
