I'm just catching a quick update tonight, but I'll get into the link more thoroughly in the morning. I found a lot of success with SS in years previous, but it's time to get away from it. I'm not ready to say that programming coupled with form is the reason for what's going on, because a) upper body workouts began to fail as well, and b) deadlifts were still progressing fine. I've fixed my form since that DL video with 225, which wasn't too hard once I began to concentrate on it. Before looking too much into the posted links, there are already several changes I'm already going to make:
1) first off, I'm taking a few days of rest. Even if I didn't need that physically, I do to clear my head. I'm having severe motivational issues right now due to the pain and progress problems. I'm the type that is going to make myself go to the gym regardless, but I'd rather not hate it. And my body needs some time to recollect itself.
2) I'm going to start doing mobility exercises every day, not just lifting days. Additionally, I'm going to look into getting re-evaluated by my PT. Ideally I'll be given some things to work on without returning to therapy several days a week, but we'll see.
3) new program.
4) new program.
5) new program.
thanks for the link, I'll be reading it in the morning.
