How sure are you that you're 10-13% BF?

If it's just an estimate, it may be that you're underestimating true BF and you're just dieting down to a better hormonal profile and insulin sensitivity.

Take a short time off from all training and let things heal up some. This might not be necessary but I think it's smart to be cautious with lower back injuries.

Try it and let us know how it goes. At 10x5, I think you'd have to start with something in the 12-15RM range.

It's usually an excessive number of sets but with the adjustment in intensity, you...
