I started the 5x5 routine last year after reading about it in V's thread.
Monday: Squats, Benching, Rows
Weds: Squats, Military Presses, Deadlifts
Friday: Squats, Benching, Rows
I loved it. At one point during the year I developed tendonitis
in the achilles.
After going through PT it was better except for anytime I try squats and deads. The pain will come back a little the next day. Not a lot, but enough to know that if I continue it will get worse. Other than that, any other activity is fine (Leg press, leg curls, rows, spinning, etc...) other than anything high impact on the foot.
My question is this. If it turns out I am no longer able to do squats and deads, what would people suggest I substitute them with and still gain enough benefits within the rhelm of this 5x5 routine? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
