|Need some help. My lower back has been very fatigued/ tired lately. Maybe overtraining it? Just always sore. Mornings it feels alright, but as the day goes on, it eventually gets tired. I work 5 days 40 hours doing construction work. Before work, I do my lifting. Current workout is PPL/PPL rest repeat. I’ve been lifting for about 5-6 years. Always have had an active job. Just started doing PPL 6 days a week about 3 months now? Usually I did upper lower but was liking going to the gym more with little quicker workouts. Just trying to seek some advice on what I should do? Thanks|

|Haven't checked this site in away, hence the delay...Do direct work on your hips, glutes, hamstrings religiously. I'm the only guy in the gym who uses the adductor / abductor machines as well as the glute/hamstring kickback machine (where the cable is around your ankle), in addition to my normal leg day stuff (squats, split squats, ham stuff, unfortunately I don't do deads anymore, etc). Throw in some glute bridges - one leg and two - and eventually you should start feeling better. Your spine is doing the work that those muscles should be doing because they're weak or essentially asleep.
I've had 3 herniated discs for 15+ years and just last year added this work, as well as an inversion table, to my PPL routine. Back feels better now than it has in a decade.
