Back injury not as bad as I thought.

If you missed Saturday’s update, I screwed up my back on Friday. No, not while working out – while putting away dumbbells. :rolleyes

At first I thought I’d blown my back out again, but now it seems clear this is not the case. Whew. It’s only been a couple of days and the pain has already been reduced to a very dull ache. The pain intensifies slightly if I move in certain ways, but it’s nothing like the last time this happened.

As Indy says, “It’s not the years, it’s the millage.”

Anyway, I tried to do my supplemental traps workout yesterday afternoon, but the force on my back was causing the pain to increase enough that I thought it wise to stop, so I did. There’s no way I can squat or lunge today, and I think even leg presses and lying leg curls would aggravate the injury, so I’ve decided that the wise thing to do is skip today’s workout. I don’t like doing it, but my gut tells me it’s the right move. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to perform tomorrow’s chest and tricep workout as planned. I hope so. I do not want to lose the incredible momentum I’ve built over the last 7 weeks.

Of course I’ll continue to eat my regular bulking diet and work around the problem in the gym as best I can until I’m fully healed. I hope by this time next week I’m back to 100%.

Lots of work to do today, so I’m going to get at it. Thanks for stopping by!
