For the past week I have been having alot of pain in my legs. Specifically the hips and quads. After workouts I can barley walk and my physiotherapist and massage therapist have been telling me for a while "Lay off teh squats" To which I of course replied "GTFO I need to squat as much weight as I can ofr a 5x5" I did a google search and have alot of teh symptoms of over training. •Decreased performance (strength, power, muscle endurance, cardiovascular endurance) •Decreased training tolerance and increased recovery requirements •Decreased motor coordination •Increased technical faults http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f49/my-quest-sanity-strength-1280737/ this is my trainin glog for the past 5-6 weeks. I have added 45lbs to my squat but felt once I hit 225lbs it got very hard and I thought that a plateau may be comming on, but I have never had a plateau being a novice. I was thinking maybe having wed/ a lighter day of squats maybe doing 3x5 instead of 5x5. Any suggestions on what I can do? Im certainly not going to squat for teh next week or so I feel like a 80 year old man. Thank you in advance.
