Hello! so currently I am starting my bulking phase, I’m like 2 weeks in and things are going well.
My workout split currently is Legs - Chest/tris - Back/bi’s - Shoulders, repeat.
The problem I am having is that my lower back is shot. I get enough sleep, and I eat enough (following my macros to a tee usually).
I use shoulders as my off day where I don’t really go hardcore in the gym, still train shoulders hard, but its obviously not as intense as a leg workout. Anyway my workouts start with the big three, Legs start with 6 sets of squats 2-6 reps, then after those I change my sets to 4-5 and and reps of 8-12. I’ve had people tell me that I’m overtraining but I feel great, the only problem is is that my lower back is having a hard time squatting/deadlifting heavy every other day to the point where I tried to squat and my lower back couldn’t handle is so I couldnt even do one rep. How can I fit Legs chest and tris and back and bis twice in one week. If I have to I’ll put one rest day in there but I’d rather not. Is there any other options?
P.S. I don’t have a belt, and no my form isn’t bad. I’m at a home gym so ego lifting doesn’t really matter to me
