Hi everyone, been mostly lurking around these forums. Thanks everyone for the very informative posts, they have helped me a great deal.
Now about my back...Last Thursday was my deadlift day and I was doing 220lb with 25lb plates to work on my grip and ROM. I've read Tate's article on doing deads with low reps so my set/rep scheme for this exercise was 10x3. Toward the latter sets I was getting fatigued which hampered my form but I continued to go on. Bad idea. The next couple of days my lower back, more specifically my tail bone region, have been getting really odd sensations and soreness. It has been almost a week and the pains are getting stronger.
My question is, what kind of recovery exercises can I do to help to speed up my recovery. My gym does not have a reverse hyper machine, but i do find ways to do regular reverse hypers. Will partial deadlifts help the area? Am I going to have to just lay off the lower back exercises for a while? Does anyone have any similar experiences?
I really love deadlifts and I hope I can reach my goal of 385 by the end of the year
