Thanks Quad. I'm going to have to sort out a homespun reverse-hyper. That should help. Low back was much better when squatting last night after missing deads on Wednesday. I have a tendency to be a little round-backed when deadlifting heavy stuff which I don't think is particularly a bad thing, but it does place more strain on the old erectors. For some reason they seem to take longer to recover than my quads, glutes and hams. Warming up thoroughly and starting light has helped my left shoulder to recover while I've been benching regularly. It actually feels pretty good these days so I may yet have a shot at a 200lb press and a 300lb bench (I'm on track for that at least). Enjoy your break.
