I took the day off today because my back was aching, so i wanted to let it rest, I should have been eating a lot more than what I did but I did have quite a bit of fruit and still had breakfast because I can't go without it.
The pains in my back got a lot better and I did treat it with an icepack.
Does anyone else tend to get pains in their back the next day from deadlifts?
I want to know if it is a sign that I am overdoing it or a sign that I am challenging my body.
Please let me know
I think I am going to keep track and write a Blog on how everything goes in the gym and a bit of outside the gym to look back on and so other people get to know what i do.
Well today I did back, mostly was dead lifting day. Did 235lbs quite a few times even if I put it down and went back to it in a minute, I also wanted to step it up so I added a ten on each side and I did that about 4 times (did put it down and went back to it.)
What I also know works very well for my back is weighed chins, and wide ones really give my lats an amazing pump, I would highly recommend doing weighed chins.
When doing back I use to do a lot of pull downs and various machines for back but I'm more sticking to the compound movements and doing as heavy as I can and really pushing myself to the limit. I also did some behind the neck pull downs and some shrugs for my traps :P
Overall a great day, very proud of myself for upping the weight and packed down a nice protein shake after my work out with L-Glutamine and had some strawberries on the side. I find that fruit really boosts your energy back up to normal after a vigorous workout.
Any tips, suggestions or comments will be gladly appreciated
