Shit Happens


I injured my lower back on Monday morning before going to the gym.

I knew it was pretty bad. I couldn't bend my back at all. 

I planned to do weightlifting; apparently, I had to change my plan.


Did I take rest at home?

Yes.  I took rest at home after my workout.

I barely walked to the gym and do a lot of mobility work and walked on the treadmill.

I did treatment on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 

I kept going to the gym to do what I can do with limited movement.

It was getting better and better.


I couldn't do even one squat with a barbell within this three days.

It is f*#ked up!



I started to do simple weight lifting movement with the empty barbell yesterday. Then I put 10kg on each side. I barely lifted the weight up.

It told me I will recover soon.


On Friday, I did snatch x 6 sets x 60kg and Clean & Jerk x 6 sets x 80kg again. 

It seemed better today. 

Here is my message - Don't stop if you are injured. 

Keep moving can heal your body faster than you think.

No one likes having an injury. 

I don't want it either. 

But it happened.


The interesting is this week supposed is "de-load week." 

The program should be more relaxed with low intensity compared to the last 4 weeks. 

I am sure I can come back with 100% strength next Monday.
