Squats felt very heavy today and i really struggled on the final set, i almost failed the final rep. press felt much better then last week. but on pendlay rows my lower back began to ache and after doing 2 sets i called it a day to prevent injury as it was beginning to twinge on each rep.
Im a bit worried that the 5lb increases on squats aren't going to be attainable for much longer as i have already trained squats with correct form for 4 months now, and i can see a plateux coming along within the next few workouts.
As for pendlay rows my 2 workouts of 5 rep sets is over, next time i'll be doing 8 reps, the heavy weight is too much of a strain on my back at the angle required, im hoping my increased strength in deadlifts will fix this weakness otherwise i'll be changing pendlay rows for chins.
sorry to hear about the problems with the pendlay rows mate, why not take a bit of weight off and try to build it up slowly?
