    Lower back pump fix?

    Is there any experienced aas user or a trainer of some kind that knows how to either mitigate the back pump that comes from certain aas while squatting or deadlifting (for myself the problem area lies with dbol and eq mostly) Iíve heard taurine helps, and with use Iíve noticed a very slight lessening or the pump, but it still presents itself after going for 10+ reps with any weight whether it be a warmup with 135 or a working set with 585 the pump stays and makes finishing the workout damn near impossible, anyways any help or advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    5,000 mg pre-wo Taurine, best thing that works for me
    Pretty hard to completely get rid of the pumps, just embrace them

    I get that shit with anadrol. I used taurine at first now I just ride with it and embrace the pumps. But they did lessen in time from doing a cycle more than once thru the year. I usually just run 25mg of anadrol because at 50 it fucks up my appetite

    Hate lower back pumps! Tbol gives them to me. I still havenít figured it out after all these years. Just hits sometimes. Definitely trying the high taurine!

    nothing gets rid of back pumps, you will have them all the way thru PCT once they really settle in

    It's not a direct side-effect of AAS. It's an indirect side effect from the increased pump and extra work your lower back is doing from it, from having either weak, or dysfunctional hips, bad form or a combination.

    Your low back should not be putting in that much work. Also be mindful of how much your low back is getting worked. Most rows hit the low back when done without support which can tax the low back especially if a squat or deadlift day is followed right after.

    Throw in some hip thrusts to strengthen your glutes, and some internal rotation stretches of the hip socket and a lot of that low back pump will alleviate. A lot of steroid users tend to only focus on the "mirror" muscles. So they like to blame their pain on other things instead of reality. A weakness.

    Oh and pull back on carbs and increase fats. This will be a quick fix until you actually fix the real issue.

    I think most of these "back pumps" complaints are about kidney stress, not muscles. I get em from dbol.

    Take some stress off your lower back. Heavy deads, squats, bent rows, tbar rows, etc, all in a week is too much for most people's lower backs to handle. It's a recipe for back problems, IMO. I've rotated two one week and the other two the next for months and dedicated a day for stretching to manage it. And eliminate traditional deads unless your a power lifter. Trap bar deads in their place has helped the back problems/pumps.

    It's all the leaning forward on these movements and the lower back stabilizing the weight. It gets pumped just like any other muscle. If you're suffering low back pumps every workout, you're stressing the lower back waaaaay too much
