Thank you all for the replies (and video).

The pain is not from an injury, it is from wear. The hiking season started a month ago and, being of a certain age (~50), adding relatively long hikes has...

Lower back pain recovery program/approach?

I've developed some lower back pain that won't go away.

Still, I can do my entire routine except for heavy rack pulls (3x6) which are becoming too painful.

Since I want to recover asap and get back...

I fail to understand your position on this, Lyle, as very little information has been shared. Why can we not talk about it?

I've come across similar data, although some studies on the elderly spin some benefits.

And yet, there is a certain mystique to this type of training. Is it just bro-science? It is there that most...

Forced & negative reps

I would appreciate comments/links from anyone with experience using forced and negative reps. Workouts too, sets/reps per body part, etc.

Thank you all.

There are other factors, like sleep, that will have a more marked impact. It is unclear how to identify which is which outside of experimental settings and, even there, it would be problematic.

I think I understand now. My bad.

Lyle comment was, please correct me if wrong, that SETS of only eccentric reps do very little.

If so, eccentric reps could make sense at the end of a heavy set, to...

Weird case of miscommunication.

All sets I am currently doing are normal, with a concentric and an eccentric motion.

I'm interested in adding an eccentric set to the normal sets. The question is...

Not only eccentric. Like I said. It's about how to program them in.

At present, 1 warm-up long set, 3 short heavies, 3 pyramid down increasingly longer.

I figure, 1 warm-up long set, 3 short...

When to do negative sets

I'm doing some isolation work, heavy first, then pyramid down. The machine allows me to do negative sets. It seems to make sense to do these after the heavy sets. Correct?

You are still trying to reinvent the wheel with all that weird programming. It's too much, too ineffective, and too variable. Just do the GBR or the "big 5" or some such and stick to it for a few...

I know what you mean about the baby carrots. They seem like a different species. I don't buy them anymore and only eat them if they are served.

Monotony does the trick easy. Just think how many raw carrots you can eat before you give up. But don't do the same with processed food. Anyone can eat more pringles than carrots.

I also have problems hitting the lats, no matter which exercise. My arms give up first. I'm forced to use straps to release a bit of the load from my forearms.

The first thing you need to understand is that you are overdoing it.

Doing something simple like the so-called "Big 5" routine beats all the weird programming you've come up with.

Good for you. Now keep at it, easy does it. Don't burn out trying to do too much too soon. Progressive overload is your friend. Take the long view as you did with your weight.

Ignore the nonsense and go for it.

I mean, come on, you only have to go up-down EIGHT times and that's a set. Repeat THREE times and you are done.
