I started a LHT routine around 6-7 weeks ago, and all was going fine until recently. In my last few workouts I've got a headache as soon as I start doing squats. It's quite an intense headache at the back of the head on the left side, and increases with intensity with every rep. It's happened the last 3 times I've tried to squat, having previously had no issues with this. I haven't jumped up a huge amount in weight on the bar, only adding about 5lb each week, and currently only squat a very modest 60lb. I don't get the headache with any other exercise. Today I've done deadlifts, bench, chin ups and shoulder press with no issues. Has anyone else experienced this, or know what might be causing it? I've now removed squats from my routine, but don't want to do this permanently as they're such a great movement.
No announcement yet.
