I'm currently about to start week 4 in Bill Starr's 5x5 and my back pain from about 8 months ago has been re-aggrivated due to something unrelated to weight lifting or the actual lifts I am doing.
I was unable to do a single rep of deadlifts on wed. then on friday I couldn't get one rep on the squat, though I could still row and press. I was wondering what I should do if anyone has any advice for me here. The best solution I can think of is just waiting for the pain to go away then start the program over. I was told this pain will always be on and off for the rest of my life I beleive its a torn muscle near my left hip joint.
