    Grab a hard ball and roll we’re it hurts.

    Could just be your IT band.

    for myself over the years I’ve noticed if I have knee pain or low back pain pushing on muscle spasm in their respective areas of the it band fixed it instantly.

    Of course, everyone is different though.

    Hey Coach,

    Whats an EP?

    I saw a sports doctor... does work for the reds rugby and qld state of origin team. He said my hip flexors and hamstrings were tight and to work on those.

    Also seen a powerlifting coach, yourself... who worked on my form and said while not great it was passable... that i should do rack pull or deadlift from mats.

    Duno... after my last squat session on 31st dec my lower back has been achey... i did a fairly big squat session... 3 working sets then 5x5 fsl. Usually only deadlifts fire up my back like this.

    I do mobility work before each lifting session.

    What is FSL?


    EP is an exercise physiologist, we have 2 here.
    They get people moving pain free, then refer to us for coaching and programming.

    Your issue is that you cant get to a standard height bar without being in spinal flexion.
    That's why I had trap bars and rack pulls in your program instead, until the issues were resolved.

    Ahhh wait on. I remember this bloke...hires a coach (a fucken great one too), and the first thing he does is come on here looking for other advice...

    Chances are all of these questions have been answered right there in Valhalla Strength too.

    Trust issues?

    That said, a belt is also not something you use to "support your back". That's not, contrary to bro science, what a belt is for. A belt is used to brace against, not support your lower back.

    A belt should start out a touch loose and then, prior to lifting the weight off the floor or off a stand, you push out into the belt. You should, if you are doing it right, feel not just your belly pushing out but your sides as well.

    That said, I'm not saying to not get a belt and use one. They will make lifting safer just from having your torso braced to avoid spinal shift. But if you don't use it properly you can do some damage.

    Best belts to use are powerlifting belts, because they are designed for heavy bracing. Lever belt is so much easier and faster to use, once you get your lever fitted to the right holes in the belt. Some use prong belts, which are a pain to put on and take off, as they say they can make them tighter or looser just by choosing a different notch in the belt. But if you are using it looser or tighter in a workout, you aren't using it properly anyway. Just get a lever belt. End of story.

    To fix your lower back, your back needs to get stronger. Try paused hypers for the lower back. Seated rows for upper back.
    Prong belts are a pain to put on. Haha. Ok, better not lift heavy weights either because thatís such hard work as well. .
