After thinking yesterday I might have to lose a week, a long soak in the bath (with salts and olbus oil) and plenty of deep heat sorted me out sufficiently to deadlift this morning. Hurrah!
On the subject of deep heat. Careful where you get that stuff. Especially the max strength version.
Deadlifted today with my Oly shoes on, I can’t remember exactly why I’m doing it; only that Brandon Lilly said to (when doing the explosive day) in a video. Something about hamstring recruitment. Which probably actually makes it a bad idea when your hamstring tweaked the day before.
The sore point wasn’t any problems today, a little tight at times which made me cautious and I probably didn’t rip a the bar as much I could have because of it.
I do worry that maybe my explosive days aren’t explosive enough and I may consider lowering the % on explosive days in a future cycle.
