I'm not quite sure how it happened. I just started noticing a pain in my back, not even within a few days after a leg or back day.
So I gave it two weeks rest with no back or leg exercises that would strain the back. Yesterday I did squats and yeah, on my warmup sets doing 140 lbs less than I would normally do, I noticed a very distinct pain there. So I just dropped the sets and moved on to safter pastures.
Today I woke up and am definitely sore.
I noramlly pride myself on good form on squats and deads, and if I can't keep good technique, I'll terminate a set and move down the weight.
I know this can be variable, but any idea how long I should rest this?
Anything that's worked for others?
