    Fierce 5 novice without squats/deadlifts

    Hello all, I have been running fierce 5 novice for about a month now, but I have had reoccurring pain in my upper hamstring when doing lower body lifts such as squats and deadlifts, which cause discomfort throughout the day and even into the next few days. Isolation exercises do not cause this pain though, so I was wondering what changes I should make to the fierce 5 novice program or if I should just do the upper body lifts. This is also not me trying to avoid hitting legs, as I enjoy working them out and would like to get back to it painlessly as soon as possible.

    You should try to figure why you can’t do those exercises without pain (more likely just mild discomfort).

    I have gone to a physio to get it checked out and I am getting an MRI soon. I was wondering if I should do some isolation exercises and what my routine would look like in the meantime while I am waiting for a solution.

    You could do split squats/1 leg RDLs until you get the issue resolved. I have to use them because doing squats is very dangerous for me now.
