    last wednesday, on the 2nd rep of the 2nd set of deadlifts, I experienced pain in my lower back. It was the first time it happened to me, and I've been performing deadlifts for 2 years. Today, my lower back feels near normal and should be %100 by wednesday. Should I take a break from DLing or go light?

    I only do em every other week, your lower back is the slowest muscle to heal or so arnold says. Do a light set one week, off next, go heavy, then off again. Just rock you legs with heavy squats :)

    qft.

    i learned this the hard way today :wtc:
    i will still continue doing deads once a week though, every other week, ill switch off heavy then lightweight.


    Offtopic question, but would it be ok to perform squats/bench once a week or even more?
