Get sharp pain in my tailbone and upper left ass cheek when I squat. But im fine when I deadlift. So what if i cut squats all together and just exclusively deadlifted?
fix your problem then, something is wrong. try other squat variants.
3x a week deadlifting heavy is pushing it, but you can get away with deadlifting heavy 2x a week if you structure your training around it i think. minimize low back stress, chest support rows, stuff like that.
you will just have underdeveloped quads is all.. probably really underdeveloped, but at least you'll get a big ass
>fix your problem then
Ive had this problem for like 3 months now. Ive tried taking weeks off. Ive tried deloading, even when I do it with correct form I run into the same issue, only less more with less weight.
What if I substitute squats with a hack lift variant? (deadlift from behind)
that's fine. you could even do leg extensions if you can (keep them high reps thiugh, you should not go heavy)
i dont think your issue with squat is form then. maybe its some nerve issue or flexibility or some shit. i have no idea, but i imagine there has to be some solution?
Then get a gym membership you fucking jew faggot.
You cant intentionally paint yourself into a corner and then whine about your options. No, deadlifting is not a substitute for squats. Now STFU.
i can already tell by the thumbnail what this is and ill never watch it again
this is the ultimate nightmare
fuck that noise i aint pushing play fuaaaaaaaaaaaaccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
>maybe its some nerve issue or flexibility or some shit.
almost definitely this. also, as someone who has basically stopped squatting to exclusively deadlift, it has been wonderful. I love deadlifting, and I had kind of overdeveloped quads, so I've never worried about them lagging behind, but they've continued to grow as I deadlift more and more weight. I'd say go for it, but this anon is right
you'll probably want to cut it to twice a week. I go hard one day, like say max out or heavy triples, then have two days without deadlifts, and on the third do a light day, then two days rest, then maybe 5x5 for a few three day "cycles", then a light day before I decide to max or go heavy. If you're relatively new to lifting or maxing under 405 you can probably take one of those rest days out in between some of your sets though, it should be fine. just go based on how you feel in the gym and you'll figure it out fine! good luck
Do bulgarian split squats, lunges, steps ups, goblet squats and so forth. DL two times a week is fine.Do 1x5 until you hit 1x5 with 110-130 kg. Then try this:
Heavy day: (do lunges after dl, 4x8-12)
