I hurt my back on Monday on my 3rd rep of 5x5 DLs . . . Before the soreness really set in, I finished up through the pain (probably not the smartest thing to do) and finished the rest of my routine. I felt and heard a crack in my lower back. I was really concentrating on form and such. Sucks cause I lowered the weight because a few weeks ago this happened and I thought it was due to too much weight. Anyway, when I did it a few weeks ago, it took about a week to go away. Yesterday I skipped cardio (usually do 20 mins of HiiT) because just the impact from walking hurt. I could barely get out of the car w/o cringing. Today it feels a lot better, but I'm still phuctup if i'm holding weight and I turn in certain positions. I just changed the water jug at the water cooler and it hurt when i turned to put it on the thinger. I'm guessing it'll go away in a few days (this is probably the 5th time in a year this has happened). Today's line up is: - light squats 4x8 - GM's 3x12 - DB sh press 5x5 - pullups 4x max I'm guessing all those except for the pullups is gonna compress or put a lot of stress on my back. I hate missing days but I don't wanna make my back worse. Was thinking about just doing some chest and arms. I never do arms. I've been doing the big compounds, 5x5. Anyway, do you guys workout if you're phuctup or do you skip until you're better? What would OTF&N do?
