Lower back fatigue
Less than 8 weeks to my meet and I am struggling with some lower back fatigue. Squats don't bother my back but 90% deadlifts are the making things worse right now.
2.5 to 3 months ago I hit a triple with 605. 5 weeks ago I hit a 675 raw PR.
I started to pick up lower back fatigue about 4 weeks ago. Right now I am feeling generally weaker. I did 5 singles at 605 this week and I don't think I could have safely attempted a 6th rep. This is 10 pounds lighter than the 5 singles work I was doing 3 months ago, but feeling much heavier.
Bottom line is this...if I had to compete right now I would be lucky to hit 650.
I am trying to decide how to train deads for the next 4-7 weeks. Not sure if I should drop down to 75% and just do a volume of singles, doubles or triples, or keep working at 90% but limit things to 1-2 heavy pulls per week.
I welcome all thoughts and ideas.
