    I hurt my back doing improper deadlifts and a lot of manual labor over the summer. I've been slowly recouperating ever since and about 6 weeks ago started to feel good enough to work out again.

    I'm down 20lbs or so now and am building strength everywhere, especially my lower back/core muscles. :coold:

    Are there a lot of fighters with this type of injury? With all the sprawling and shit I would expect so :hsd:
