Thanks for the advice guys. Im gonna try and see a specialist, doctors this days are shockingly bad, just don’t know how long im goin to be waiting to get in.
I’ve just start doing a bit of HIIT on a normal stationary bike, my back feels alot looser afterwards but still generally fucked, to say im gutted is an understatement :-([/quote]
Make sure that you are trying all of the basic therapeutic home treatments as well, NSAID, hot/cold therapy etc. If the bike seems to make things feel well for a short time afterwards, I would try getting off of the bike and on to a heating pad for 15 minutes followed by an ice pad for 15 minutes. Have you posted on the injury forum? There are some sharp guys in there that might be able to give you more advice as far as what you can do until you can see a specialist.[/quote]
Thanks, i’ve been using these tips and my back has come along greatly, infact the pain is about 80% down…just goin to rest it from anything that puts stress on it but can still manage some exercising.
Infact i’ll probably ease of for at least another 3 weeks and see how it goes.
Just to add i hadn’t done any weights since the injury, just HIIT on the bike but today did a pullups/chinups session which went pretty well, breaking it into an am and pm session.
Started at 25kg instead of the usual 40kg and did for am:
for pm all at body weight:
wide grip pullups 5x5
shoulder with pullups 5x5
chinups with thumbs around the bar 5x5
chinups without thumbs 5x5
Seems like alot of volume but when i usually do back i normally have alot of rows in and chinsup/pullups etc and only train it once every 7 days so i think ive worked it well and now it’s got a full 7days to rest.
Good to hear that things are feeling better
