    My lower back has been killing me in a bad way. I wake up an it feels fine but when its time for bed its killing me. Even on the days I don't workout. So im trying a break from deadlifts, squats, powercleans. I think my main problem is I round my back at the bottom of a squat. Any advise?

    Chest

    Bench Press:3x?
    160lbs 5-/150lbs 5-/140lbs 9/115lbs 11
    Incline Dumbbell Press:3x14
    50lbs @ 30* 14-14-12

    The fourth set of benching was to work on my form. My left hasn't been going as low as my right. Causing my left arm to move up quicker and my right arm to push most of the weight. So I put two strings on each side on the barbell and attached washers on them at the bottom. I measured both side to make them even. I had it set so that the washers would hit the ground and make a noise at the bottom of the bench press. In turn this told me if both sides were coming down at same speed and depth.

    * means degrees of incline
