The problem is recurring lower back (very lower back, where the spine hits the hip area) tightness and discomfort. It all started after a set of back squats a month ago where I almost missed but kind of muscled the weight up. What happens is after I do back squats, for 1-3 days my lower back will be very tight, it becomes uncomfortable to sit in certain positions. I have tried stretching, and while it has helped, the problem continues to occur.
I also DO NOT get this from doing front squats, or SLDL. I however do get it from doing deadlifts, conventional or sumo.
What does this sound like to you veterans? A strain, pull, torn muscle, slipped disk, misshifted hips? I want to seek some kind of medical treatment if it’s needed, but I don’t know whether to start at a chiropractor, osteopath, deep tissue masuse, or accupuncturist.
As far as the weight being moved -
the afformention almost missed but muscled up squat was only 170lbs. I’m posting this in beginners for a reason.
I can comfortably work SLDLs @ 205, front squats usually 145-155, and when I pull it’s usually 225-255, PR being 285.
