It would look as though I'm back... again! Re-injured my hip/lower back 2-3 months ago; minor tear in my left quadratus lumborum and a whole mess of hip issues. The QL tear pretty much forced my hand - zero lifting. Spent the time just stretching and watching WL video when I normally would be lifting. It was depressing.
Picked things up last week. Lost a whole lot of strength, but than again, held onto some too. Some issues are still present but only when it comes to the back squat. Lower back pretty much shuts down with anything over 340lbs. So for the time being, the back squat doesn't exist.
Template will be my typical work up to a 1-2RM and drop down for 3-5 down sets on overhead and front squats, 5 days a week. Two of those days will be some higher volume work for overhead instead of the RM/down sets. Try to stay as consistent as possible, but with work/overtime being very unpredictable, missed sessions are likely. Plan to shift to the Olympic lifts once my strength is back at respectable levels.
Current strength @ 170lbs
