    Question Low back muscles fatigue - normal?

    Hi, I've started classic Starting Strength program for 2 weeks already and currently I feel my low back muscles get fatigued so yesterday I could not even finish the targeted deadlift set. I go to gym once in 2 days, could it be that those muscles just have not enough time to recover or could it be problem with the technique of squats & deadlifts? Or could it be that those muscles are the weakest in my body so the get the most load?

    What does the book say: read the chapter with the heading "muscles and soreness".

    "Soreness and injuries" doh.

    Hi, there is no need for "classic" adjective before Starting Strength. There is only one program that can be referd to as SS program - the Starting Strength Program.

    If you are looking for help you need to give us some basic info about yourself. Age, weight, how much you lift, etc. I believe it is all written in one of the stickies.

    If yours erectors are the weakest muscles in your body then you have some serious problem.

    Thanks for all answers. I concluded two things:

    * I miscalculated the weight increment: I'm in Europe and I read and converted the 5 lbs several times but somehow landed doing 5 Kg increment (11 lbs?) which should be way too much
    * I also think I did not allow enough rest between the sets

    Going to skip at least one planned training now, may be just do only upper body exercises and try to double check the squat technique once again.

    If your lower back is sore, your technique is off.
