What is your current back movement / mobility like ?

Anti-inflammatories won't do nothing for you.

movement is not bad i can walk around and bend down going to get rid of the cane tommorow and see how it goes
back just gets sore and tired when im sitting for long periods i have been icing and the swelling has almost all gone away
the chiropractor is a friend of mine and he said i should be almost 100% next week

Volvo did you require surgery? how bad was your back? did you have pain down your leg?

got a question about deadlift setup, how do you setup your deadlift bar? I have to get my bar from the bench press station, put it on the ground and then start putting on plates which feels awkward, and I can't just put plates on the bench press station and then put it on the ground because I'd collapse

I do my deadlifts at the power rack.

Alpha when my deadlift/squat rack is taken, I take a barbell from the bench section like you. But for plates, I just use one large 20kg plate, and to add weight I use smaller 10kg plates instead. Much easier to get on and off that way.

My pain is relatively concentrated in the lower back.

Ive seen a neurosurgeon but at this point I am not a high priority because i am still relatively mobile. So it's all about lifestyle and pain management for me.

i dont want to rush my return but damn sometimes i have had a real itch to go back. I am going to ice and rest all weekend and hopefully go back at the end of next week if my chiropractor says i can

i think i just pushed my body too hard but damn i was getting stronger and bigger and now it just feels like shit knowing you have to work so hard again just to get to the same point

keepz I slipped my disk last year, sharp pain shooting down my left leg... was out for ~2weeks then just resumed training and slowly built up strength again and my back healed and got a lot stronger . I had to learn how to use my core more when deadlifting so injuries dont happen again

+1, I'd never stop for a long period, doctors told Bruce he'd never be able to kick and exercise again. Result? He got even stronger because he started training again

just make sure you're not killing yourself

On a welding forum I'm on a guy made on of these. Fits in a gym bag and holds the bar up to add weights. You can buy them but making it would be cheaper.

Spoiler!

hey gaiz

so i sprained my wrist a couple days ago and have no range of motion or strength in it now. was just wondering if any of you know of any exercises i can do to keep fit. i've been going to the gym pretty regularly lately (at least twice a week) and usually do some lifting or work on the machines but realized i can't do any of them with a bum wrist. any suggestions?

i was thinking even with a wrist brace, lifting could be painful... plus i dont have a strong grip atm

Use a 10lb or 5lb plate and roll your barbell over it. Makes sliding plates on and off a helll of alot easier than just straight from the ground.

anyone have any experiences with back injury they want to share?
I posted this before:

I was injured from doing squats before. I had also heard a pop in my lower back.
The pain reduced the range of motion in my lower back. It hurt when I stretched horizantally to the side which previously was not a problem.

I went to see the doctor and she said I sprained the soft tissue in my lower back. She prescribed me anti inflammatory pills which is suppose to expedite my recovery. I never got them. In 2 weeks I was back to 100%, during which time I was still going to the gym and working around the injury.

DOMS shouldn't affect your flexibility. Injuries might. Try using a foam roller to massage your lower back. It helps for me. Above all definately make sure your squat/deadlift technique is correct.

I've been doing this for a while now. Super useful when I deadlift and finish off with my drop sets.

Finished up one month of eca and about two weeks of IF today. Lost only about 6-8 pounds, but an L shirt that was super tight 3 weeks ago fits great today.

Treated myself to some mcd yesterday, and back on the daily grind startimg monday. Lowest I've ever been weightwise in my life. Woot
