So I’ve been going to the physiotherapist recently because I have a lower back that has been hurting on and off for the last couple of years. She told me (and I already figured as much from reading this site) that it probably has to do with bad hip mobility.
Anyway, after a couple of sessions of doing stretch exercises this morning she created a workout schedule for me. Thing is, her schedule and the one I have been doing are very different.
While I have been doing a 4-day split with 3-4 sets of 8 reps working up to a max effort set, she wants me to start out with 3 sets of 30 reps with a really low weight so I learn how to keep my hips stable and my form perfect before proceeding to heavier weights.
My question is whether you think I should focus only on her schedule for now, which means limiting my progression for a couple of weeks as far as weight/strength increases go, or whether I should do a combination of her schedule and mine. I think WS4SB combines days of lighter weights and more/faster reps with max effort days with fewer reps and more weight.
