    Iím having reoccurring back pain when my squat gets around 300 lbs. Iíve reset multiple times and Iíd like to make sure itís not form related. I have known back issues and if itís just the hand Iíve been dealt then I will deal with it accordingly. Iím not trying to be a competitive lifter but it would be nice to prolong my progress. I lift for fun and general fitness but this is starting to become an issue. If you listen closely around the 38 second mark, you can hear my lower back pop and the subsequent pain followed shortly after. Below is the link to my back pain thread:

    Thank you for all you do!

    Form looks good. Where is the pain? What is your deadlift?

    Thank You, Rip.

    The pain feels like its originating from my L-5 at my sacrum. On the right side. It has gotten progressively better with doses of 440 mg Naproxen or 800 mg Ibuprofen. The Naproxen seems to last longer, but the initial relief from the Ibuprofen is substantially more noticeable. As of today, I can squat down and bend over with full ROM and minimal pain. I plan on doing some light deadlifts tonight, just to test the waters. My last deadlift was 390 for 4 reps. I failed the 5th rep.

    Thanks again!

    Sounds like typical SI-joint pain. Train through it.
