ATHLETES OVER-LAP

Hi guys,

I just thought I would run this by you guys to see what you think I have been training on the athletes routine for some time now and made some good progress but I have started to notice that my lower back is having trouble recovering from the workout′s I believe its down to the effects of over-lapping from the deadlifts and the squats as the both hit the lower back very hard especially as I have been using 190kg on the squat for 6 reps and 210kg on the deadlift for 6 reps have any of you guys experienced the same problem if so how have remedied it? I was thinking along these lines.

squats rest benchpres rest deadlifts rest pulldowns rest

leg ext peck-deck leg curls pullovers repeat

If you decrease frequency it should be ok ! Your split look good to me ! Arthur Jones often said how long it can takes for the lower back to recover, sometimes he said it could take 3 weeks.

Another option, as I′ve posted somewhere else before, is to change the order of the exercises from the Atlethe′s Routine. For example:

Workout A

1. Chin-Ups or Pulldowns

2. Dips

Workout B

1. Squats

2. Deadlifts

That way there′s less overlapping between the two workouts. Combining Squats and Deadlifts in one workout can be hard though.

Vincent_B-WINE,

thanks for the replies. Vincent I have to agree with Arthur Jones on that one my lower-back is having a hard time recovering from deadlifts and squast in back to back workouts I have been having 10-14 days between workouts so I′m hitting my lower-back hard every 20-28 days but everything else seems to be doing fine at this frequency what do you guys think of this split.

benchpress

rows

rest

squats

rest

pulldowns

dips

rest

deadlifts swapped periodically with legpress.

any thoughts on this one .

Cheers…………….HIT
