    Just a quick one this afternoon to get back into it.

    Squats:

    100 x 5/5/5

    Low bar. Felt awkward as I expected, but hopefully I'll a) get used to them fairly quick and b) have no back problems when doing them.

    Bench:

    75 x 5/5/5

    First time I've barbell benched in a while.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5/5/5

    Then home.

    Have you tried working on your core muscles? I found doing this (every other session for about 5-6min) + foam rolling your back works absolute wonders for back pain.

    Had quite bad back pain for ages to the point I would just have to stop whatever I was doing but as soon as I started doing those two things every week n stretching before lifts it went away gradually.

    Yes, although I do admit I should probably do more ab work.

    Okay, but quick session tonight, even though gym was really busy.

    Squats:

    105 x 5/5/5

    Not much trouble at all.

    Press:

    55 x 5/5/5

    Same as above.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5/5/5

    Same as above, save for maybe the last few reps on the last set.

    Then home.
