My Fucking Lower Back keeps blowing out! Every 4-5 months...BOOM In the middle of a squat or a deadlift I am on my way up and suddenly I feel it blow, and I rack the weight and leave the gym. Keeps totally derailing my progress. After having my Squat and Deadlift analyzed, it appears I overarch my back in both of these.
Now I have also been told I push out of my toes instead of heels on squats. I think both of these come from strength imbalances and also keeping my legs too close together. I will be widening my stance and point my toes out but I wanted to hear from other people who have this problem and am curious if I should switch to a trap bar, start using a lifting belt (I know...) or try and correct the imbalance in my lower back with rack pulls?
I have been doing a standard Squat and regular Deadlift, and I cannot get any freaking stronger because my lower back keeps fucking going out!!!! I am also a 10 year veteran to the iron game.
