Awesome workout bro!!! I would think the reasons for your lower back cramps was dehydration from activities earlier in the day with out re-hydrating. You could use some heat cream on your lower back to see if that helps. I know it does for me, especially at nite if my legs start cramping and I don't want to spend an hr, stretching to get them loose I put some generic stuff I get from walmart and I'M good to go the rest of the nite.
Yea good advice matey, j didn't think about the dehydration part. Proper makes sense. And yea ill give those creams a go, I've used them before over aching muscles (normally just in little tugs and pulls) and they have always worked a treat but never thought about using them like this :) thanks for the advice buddy :)

Highlights from yesterday's deadlift

Did a brutal 2 hour session with every set of deadlift supersetted with leg extensions and prone hypers. The pump was seriously unreal

My main working sets were

2 sets of 7reps on 180kg

20reps on 100kg

And 3 sets of 10 on 100kg with additional Bands 11.5kg - 36.4kg ( 25lb - 80lb)

I then finished on a blast set of leg extensions to give some real nasty bite into the quads and of course the compulsory hyperextension also.

Could barely stay standing by the end

Living my motto of

Walk into the gym - crawl out!

Strength is returning whilst rehabing both a cruciate ligament and hip/lower back injury. To compensate I've started to learn sumo and it feels smooooth. Every cloud has a silver lining and all that

Zero momentum = Maximum Muscle and Overwhealming Power


No better way to develop power off the chest than Static rack press

Knee is healing well after my cruciate ligament injury, still hurts but handling 200kg now with ease.

loving my new style, sumo deadlift feels so smooth and seems to function well with my skeleton and build.

here is to the journey for my 350kg target
