  • Lower body day, sore lower back

    Hi fello DCers

    If you read one of my threads the other day I said that I "butchered" the order of the exercises on legs/lower day so as lower back pain (muscle achiness) wouldnt effect my squats.

    So today I did the order of exercises as Dante prescribes, but couldnt help thinking that my back was fatiguing 1st (and it was front squats!)(Ham exericse was SLDL---hence fatiguing my lower back)

    I dont really want to go back to my own order as its recommended that you follow the program to the T---I got no problem with that.

    Therefore my question is:

    If I continue as I am doing, and just ride the pain a few weeks/months, will my lower back build up a certain tolerance to a degree that it no longer is the limiting factor on legs day?? (aka increase its short term recovery abilty)

    Any help MUCH appreciated

    Front squats have ALWAYS worn out my lower back, FAST. Combined with SLDL's it makes for a very tired day.
    Is there a reason you selected this exercise?

      Here's my quote from your previous exercise order question that you obviously ignored.

      FH:Agreed, that's a tough one.SLDL's get hit on Hack Squat day for me (after hack squats....but this is the exception and only time that quads get hit prior to hams)

      Rackitup, some of your questions are getting a real RockyIIIish vibe about them IMO....let's try to get it together

        Personally I'd alter your pairings too...pairing front squats with lying leg curls on one day and Hacks with SLDL's on another

          be cautious of lower back injuries bro, I know usually when I have hurt my lower back it has been due to fatigue problems so keep that one in mind.

            Well, you can always just do the fronts first when you combine your session with straight legs. I wouldn't worry about it. Also, give it time. Maybe your back will get stronger and be able to handle it eventually.

            Do what you gotta do to get you workouts in. I lover SLDL's.

              maybe you should try pairing sldl with leg press if it bothers you that much. personnally i do sldl then front squats on the smith machine and i have no problems.
