    I buckled my lower back on squats last night. My concentration was completely shattered by an asshat that walked by on my 1st rep of the 4th set

    I unracked 475 (100/2 45's and 25) got my footing for the rep...some jerk off comes by and screams "BIG DOG!" nad does a bark noise which caused me to shift the weight and to correct it I had to shift my back and it buckled...so when I squated the weight I was in the worst position you could be in.

    It feels like my spine is disconnected from my lower body. So...I did what any other animal would do. I took the weight down to 335 (just the 100's and 1 45) and attempted another squat. The pressure was so painful on my back that I couldn't even unrack the weight

    so...since I couldn't even lay down on the floor, I hobbled to the stationary bike...did my 30 minutes of cardio and attempted to go drive home.


    Today its a little less painful, but I couldn't sleep and when I'd turn to my side I'd get a sharp sharp pain.

    so I'll wait till it goes away. I told my Mom I was hardcore and she slapped me :(

    back pain is the worst and takes a while to get back to normal.

    :( yeah it is...


    but our power-squat rack (as I call it) is right next to this door/closet that they keep all the "powerlifting" crap in there...like the chains, thicker squat bar, bands, chalk, etc. Its like 3 feet from this door...so this guy goes to the closet to get something and thats when he screamed at me :( it was like right in my ear.

    The other day I was attempting a new PR on deadlift, and right when I was about to pull, this guy goes "PPPSSSSTTTTTT!!!" real loud. totally fucked me up. He was trying to get the attention of some other guy across the gym.

    Sounds like how I herniated a disc in my back, minus the big dawg comment! Make sure to keep moving around, and go see a doc, you dont wanna fuck with back injuries.

    i prolly woulda told him to STFU.... but a chick squatting the heigh-weight equivalent to that would likely scare the dude enough to get away with it :o

    not that I can squat shit, mind you.

    You should have ripped out your spine and strangled the faggot to death with it.
