    I think i hurt myself

    I was doing squats the yesterday and Today my lower back is not well. I am still moving fine but i notice a dull pain (not the muscle soreness i am used to) Its in the lumbar region. I have been lifiting 6 days a week with 3 day split. My question is, would you suggest cutting the leg day out for a bit and taking a rest, or doing leg day minus the squats (the real reason to have a leg day in the first place), or some other option?

    I would take a hot bath, do some serious stretching, and go easy until you feel 100%. I'd also consider changing your split ... 6 days a week will catch up with you eventually.

    What he^ said. Sounds like your body is saying ease up before you get hurt for real.

    you could also try 3 on, 1 off

    that rest day every 4th day helps a lot

    creatine can also help you deal with the volume, if not the low back pain

    and put some Epsom Salts in that hot bath.

    I apologize for laughing out loud at the thread title. Sorry. That was rude.
