    Working with weight I can easily handle. I lost my focus for just a second. Totally my fault. I always wear my ipod when I squat, because I like to put 100% into my squats. I was JUST getting to my working sets and a guy was talking to me. I had my ipod off as I usually don't have it on warming up. I just left it off during my first work set. Banged out 10 reps, racked it no problem. Wait 90 seconds and was going to do it again. Still talking with the guy and I SHOULD have put my headphones in as it was time to get serious. I get to the 10th rep and the guy wouldn't STFU and I just lost focus for a second. I leaned forward just a bit to much and rounded up. Made an s curve to get back up and knew I hurt my back as soon as I did it. I racked it, took my belt off and fell to the ground. It was a stupid mistake, one I've never made when squatting.

    That happened at 2pm. Took me 15 min to get up. Managed to drive home. I've been icing on/off since. Taken a bunch of motrin and hitting a pain killer before I go to bed. Managed to see my massage therapist at 5. She literally couldn't believe how locked up my back was. I can't stand straight. I walk like I'm 90. Have to walk very slow.

    What REALLY sucks, I fly out for the Olympia on thursday. My girl lands on friday. Got a killer weekend planned for her and I to just get away for a bit. You can imagine the amount of ground-n-pound that was scheduled. Right now, I can't even imagine moving.

    THIS FUCKING BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry man. Should I change it? OT can be super touchy for gfs. Even my fiancee gets pissed at OT sometimes.

    Pop some pain killers, a couple Viagra to get it up from the meds, and have her be on top.

    No pics of the GF, she does modeling stuff and my life is public enough as it is. We're trying to keep her from being drug into forums and what not. If you see me at the O, you'll likely see her with me.

    Today I'm feeling better than yesterday, but nothing happens fast. I'm moving very slow and take my time getting up and sitting down. Still icing a lot, lots of motrin and luckily I had a pain killer leftover from an ex's boob surgery to take last night. I'm NOT looking forward to a 5 hour flight on Thursday AM. I need to make some big strides for that not to be a flight from hell.

    Told the girl about the injury last night (long distance relationship). She's bringing some pain killers to vegas, so I'll be fine. I have cialis, so no worries on the pain killers killing my fun :big grin:

    If those are the pain killers from jamie eason's boobjob, I'd auction them.

    Not that you need the money, I just think it would be funny to watch someone pay $1,000 for a Tylenol 3.

    I've tweaked my back a few times without doing any real damage. I can tell they're muscular pulls, and it does take a few weeks to get back to normal.

    Walking helped tremendously. Definitely see a doctor though.

    "I leaned forward just a bit to much"

    This has been the death of me, from fixing antique cars to yard work to deadlifting to squats. I can probably point to 10 serious events over the years that have resulted in anything from days off of work to surgery from fucking leaning forward too much when I was lifting something.

    You should say "the cum on her tits is a very simple expression of his appreciation and love for her and her reciprocation of that love an appreciation."

    dude i dont think getting a massage right after an injury is the best idea. Wouldn't that just aggrevate it?

    I was locked up, muscles wouldn't release. I'm going again tomorrow. Got away from ice and going with heat, lots of it. Seems to be helping for sure.
