    Lower back pump?

    Never experienced this before. Currently running tren ace @50ed, 250tc/wk.

    Felt like both kidneys were going to explode during squats today. Is this lower back pump or something else?

    If it is LBP: remedy? Taurine?

    thanks

    Sounds like lower back pumps. They are god awful. Taurine and lots of water help mine. I get them pretty bad on tren as well.

    Taurine never did shit for me but I get them pretty bad, we'll used to, ever since I first started lifting when I was 15. For me I have to keep my hanstrings, glutes and hips loose and the pumps will stay away for the most part.

    Worst case scenario you may have to dial it back but.... Then again you never really know..

    Your QL is weak and your hips are tight. Stretch the hips to stop the pump and start strengthening the QL to improve things. Over time if you don't address this you will have major quality of life issues. At one point doing simple shit like leaning over a sink to shave would set it off.

    Thank you.
    Definitely just had to google QL.
    What exercises would you recommend for strengthening?
