17/4 Making high volume my bitch

Comments: Very happy about this session. One week ago I could barely walk, litteraly, from retearing the glute medius. Very good recovery and today I felt OK, I will not max on squats or deads until its looked on my a medical or atleast physio though, to play it safe this time. I also got a theory about what affects this injury and makes it retear all the time: I have been using a very thin (5mm / 6cm) leatherbelt at occasion and since im pretty tall,
it might have cut in to the soft-tissue of my lowerback creating a reverse effect. Just a thought but will avoid using it further. Did not use a belt for any of the sets today.

Cut my 5 sets of 10 short on the squat, my upperback cramped up like crazy so lost stability and leaned forward a bit on the last reps when fatique kicked in. Did a tripple and some fronties instead. Deadlifts were lightweight but challenged my conditioning a bit.
