Looking for a strategy for new onset low back pain radiating occasionally into right glute
Im a46year old intermediate lifter. Squat is just shy of 400 deadlift about the same. 2 years ago i had a l5 herniation which required an epidural steriod injection and 4 months of regaining strength in my right leg. Went from squatting 360 to the bar almost overnight. Now ive built back up and have been doing a 5/3/1 plan for about a year making steady improvements.
Last thursday i have some back pain on the right that felt like i slept wrong. Nothing big. Obvious spinoerector involvement but on fei i started having sharp pains into my glute but not into my thigh or lower leg. No obvious loss of strength
Was going to lay off compound lower extremity stuff for a week and see. But was wondering what others do for low back pains like this. Ive onky had the two episodes in my life and am a little gunshy since my firat episode was a pretty big deal for me
