    Week 4

    Day 4 [ Saturday ] Squat Day – Did this on Sunday, Sept. 17/06

    Warm up – Front Squat 90 lbs. x 10

    Front Squat – 125 lbs. 3rd set at 140 lbs.
    Set 1 x 8 reps –
    Set 2 x 8 reps –
    Set 3 x 8 reps – (140 lbs.) Pretty hard…sweating a lot, heart pumping.

    Notes: Keep the same for next week.

    Back Squat (Below Parallel)– 5 x 3 (work up to 5 x 5)

    5x3 all sets at 200 lbs. I wonder how much easier these would feel if my lower back problems went back to normal.

    Notes: Lower back still hurting; hurts the most when I unrack. Seems like the more I arch it the more it amplifies the discomfortness. Oh man it feels like I could REALLY ROCK THE SQUATS if these BACK PAINS WENT AWAY!!!!!!!!

    Romanian Deadlift – 200 lbs.

    Set 1 x 6 reps –
    Set 2 x 6 reps –
    Set 3 x 6 reps –

    Notes: Freaking lower back is still hurting. Perhaps I could of did 4 sets or 3 x 8 but everytime I think about how that... (ermmm I've said it many times already).... LOWER BACK is going to hurt makes me want to back off.

    Week 5

    Deadlift today, but since my lwoer back just hurts even when only doing the first warm up sets of deadlift; 140 lbs. I just stopped.

    Instead I did:

    SHOULDERS:

    5 x 3 Military press - 120 lbs.

    NOTES: I think my left wrist got messed up. 2 months ago I started learning guitar; perhaps it's the lousy attempt at forming "Barre chords".

    Lateral Raise - 25 lbs. dumbells for 1 set of 8

    NOTES: A bit too heavy I swinged the dumbell.

    Front Raise - 20 lbs. dumbell for 1 set of 10

    NOTES: Feeling a bit too heavy.

    BACK:

    Barbell Good mornings -

    130 lbs. x 5

    150 lbs. x 1.... naaaahhhh I'm going to stop.

    Massage therapist appointment on Friday.

    Well I haven't worked out for 2 weeks.

    Anyways about 10 days have passed since I went for my massage. My lower back doesn't hurt anymore when I bend over like romanian deadlifts or good mornings.

    I will have to try and pull Sumo-style deads instead of conventional this time aswell.
