Typically, yes, it is safe to perform a bent over barbell row one day before doing Romanian deadlifts (RDL) and back squats, assuming you're already in good health and don't have any existing injuries. However, it's extremely important to listen to your body. Each of these exercises can put significant strain on your lower back. You should always ensure you're using correct form when performing these exercises to avoid injury. This means maintaining a neutral spine, keeping the bar close to your body, and using your legs and hips, not your back, to drive the movements. You also need to be mindful about recovery. If you're new to these exercises or if you're lifting heavy weights, your body may need more time to recover. If your lower back is sore from the barbell rows, you may want to consider giving it a rest before performing more heavy lifts. Rest, adequate nutrition, and mobility exercises can all help to facilitate recovery. If you're feeling sore, it can be helpful to do some light mobility exercises like yoga or stretching, or to simply take a rest day, before embarking on more weight lifting. If at any point you feel sharp or severe discomfort, it's best to stop the workout immediately and consult a health professional. They can provide you with specific advice related to your fitness level and health history. Exercise should challenge you, but it should not cause pain. As with any fitness advice, it's always a good idea to consult with your personal trainer or physical therapist before making changes to your routine.
