Hey coach, normally when I do back squats I do not have any problems at all, but a few weeks ago I did back squats and was unaware until several sets in that I had the bar placed abnormally high above the traps on the neck and my lower back has been a bit stiff and sore ever since then. Lifting with a belt helps a lot and I decreased my sets and reps but my lower back is still a bit stiff and sore. Any suggestions on what I should to heal.

not sure how high it was, but that bar belongs on the upper trap area. if the back is stiff then make sure you take care in stretching nd doing mobility exercises to keep blood in that area. always be cautious with the lower back. strengthening the abs too will help.
