    Default Slight pain/discomfort in the tailbone after squats

    So yeah I'm on starting strength and after increasing my squat today, I started feeling a slight discomfort in my coccyx or tailbone.. I assume its due to lower back rounding,I'm working on hip mobility and all that but I have to really concentrate on how low i go(until buttwink) and and keeping the back straight, but today I lost focus because the weight was pretty heavy, and I was focusing on driving it up...

    So whenever I bend over and sit etc. I feel a slight pain there, like an overstretched muscle or something.. So i was thinking about backing off from squats next workout, and if the pain is gone by the time of the workout after, dropping the weight 20% and then working my way up again....

    How does that sound?

    It sounds ok, its probably just strain pain since you increase your squat when it happened... though you should really check up with a doctor because lower back pain cant be good if it isnt strain pain :/
