Then started doing light squats. Then I started deadlifting and squatting heavy. I'm fine now...just start slow and you will probably surprise yourself. It seems like you're on the right track though.
ya just have to emphasize form and start light and work my way back up.

My back problems are actually from golf when i played in high school it got really bad my senior season.
Equipment issues and flexibility were the cause of it. I have been stretching a lot so its gotten better and with the new clubs I can actually move after hitting balls at the range now and not have the terrible pain in lower back.

Thanks for the info, any stretches that you do or did for it would be helpful. I am always looking for more stretches and things I can do to improve it.
Hopefully by the end of this semester(may 13th) I am able to squat and deadlift decent weights and start getting those up and bench #s be respectable.
It really sucks about my lower back becuase I was naturally strong at deadlifting and squatting especially compared to bench and enjoy the deadlift the most.

I just stretched my hamstrings. A lot. Every day or every other day. It made a world of different. Spend some time with it. And hold your stretches. I heard that stretching a muscle for either 15 or 20 seconds (can't remember) will stretch a muscle temporarily, but holding it longer will increase flexibility. I'm sure someone else knows the 'exact' time it takes.

2/3/08

Floor Press-185,195,205,225-8,8,6,1
DB seated press-70,75,70-6,3,5
Tri Ext-90,90,90-8,6,5
Front lateral Raises-40,40,40-8,8,8
DB Shrugs-100,100,120-18,15,6
Squat-225,255,275-5,3,2
2 sets of 10 box jumps and 10 quick reps of 135 squatting

Felt pretty good today, did the work out after the super bowl. I had been drinking but felt fine.
Still trying to get used to floor press since it was only 2nd time doing it.
The squating was a lot better than last time I tried the 225 for 5 was very easy and my back did not hurt at all, felt fine. So added some weight and the 255 n 275 felt fine also.
Short term squat goal is 315 should come quickly as long as back continues to be fine. Longer term goal is 365 and 405.

2/6/08

Bench-200-5x5 PR
Incline DB-80,80,80-8,6,6
Lat-in-190,200-8,8
-out-160-8,7
DB Row-80,80-8,8
Fast Bench-135-13
Played bball for 1-2 hrs after

Going to finish up some school work and than get a couple subs and sammies from Quiznos.

Body didnt feel great today but the 5x5 with 200 wasn't too hard, about 2 min of rest or so in between each set.

Original goal from starting lifting in November was 200 for 3x8 I figure 5x5 is pretty equivalant so hopefully my next goal comes soon of 3x8 225
