the thing is I just deloaded like 3 weeks ago, by just going lighter on the new program I’m doing right now. Also, I have to pick up and lift boxes around at work, could this be also contributing to the increased stiffness in my lower back??
This is my program right now I’m doing, tell me what I should switch around.
squats-5x5 (ramp weight to a top set of 5)
push press-5x5 (same thing)
t-bar rows-5x5 (same thing)
accessory work-weighted behind the head situps 4 sets 8-10, good mornings 2 sets 5-8 reps
squats-4x5 (same as monday except same weight from the 3rd set is used for the last set)
incline bench-4x5 (top set of 5)
deadlifts-4x5 (top set of 5)
accessory work- leg curl 3 sets 5-8 reps, 2 sets of flat dumbbell bench 5-8 reps, 4 sets of situps
squats-4x5,1x3,1x8 (first 4 sets is same as mondays, the triple is 2.5 lbs greater then my max, last set is repeating the third set for 8 reps)
push press-4x5,1x3,1x8 (same thing)
t-bar rows- 4x5,1x3,1x8 (same thing)
acces. work- close grip weighted chinups 3 sets 5-8 reps, weighted dips 3 sets 5-8 reps[/quote]
Just about everything in your program is hitting your back and then you’re lifting at work. Take a week off.
