Adam Driggers Back Training, 8-6-2014

So I tried squatting Saturday and it didn’t go so well. After some soul searching I came to the realization I had come to the point in this particular programming that would require some changes. I knew it was coming. I was just waiting for it to be evident. Basically my pulls on Wednesdays are effecting my squats on Saturdays. Last week, Wednesday’s rep goal was 3 sets for 8 with 470. All was good and I completed the sets; however, I knew I had strained my right lower back and hip. It wasn’t clear as to how bad until Saturday when I bowed out of squats at 455 when my prescribed weight was 545 for sets of 3. So the time has come to adjust my program and make the necessary changes. That started this week as I dropped the pulls from the session all together this week to increase the healing that could take place before Saturday.

Here is what last night’s session looked like.

Pull ups:

3 sets of 6


225 x 12

275 x 10

315 x 8

365 x 6

405 x 4 Pin rows


Close Grip PDs:


175 x 12 for 3 sets




315 x 15 for 3 sets


Wide Grip PDs:


175 x 12 for 3 sets [share title=”Share this Article” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true”][author title=”About the Author”]
