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.
