I set my 1RMs yesterday and right after the squat received a little jolt in my lower back. It wasn’t terrible so I did my first hypertrophy day today but, by the last set of squats, was trying to figure out a novel way to get the bar up onto my back .
I finished the other exercises w/o issue but I noticed my back kinda lit up putting the plates back.
Skip squats a day or two? Lower the squat weight? Both? Weight belt?
I watched ~20 videos on squat form so I think I’m sorted there.
