Today was my leg day in the gym, and on the second set of squats, rep 3 my back decides to say no more. Not bad enough so I couldn’t do other things like leg press and leg extensions, but bad enough that I had to stop squatting (it was 1 1/4 squats actually). I imagine I’ll be fine soon, but what frustrates me is that it came out of no where. Maybe it was because I had done deadlifts yesterday, but I have done that combo on back to back days plenty of times. No warning, set one went perfectly, set two reps 1 and 2 went fine as well, but rep 3 did not and I had to cut out the rest of the sets and go on to other things.
This is more of a rant then anything, I have had back problems in the past but they haven’t acted up for about a year now. For about two years now, squats have been in every one of my routines, deadlifts in most as well, and my workout usually starts with them, just seems annoying that it decides to get stiff today.
Any experiences with this kind of thing, something decides to not work without any real warning? I’m sure I’ll be full squatting in no time, but now it’ll be on my mind and I’ll be worried it’ll happen again.
