I was doing db rows yesterday and in my third set I felt a nagging pain make it’s way through my back. It wasn’t a sting but a really dull and annoying feeling.
I had my knee on a bench and was rowing with ,for me, heavy db’s, going all out on the last 3 reps. I always stretch out the back and keep a slight bend at the elbow at the bottom, and when I pull it back up I retract my shoulderblade. It’s basicly a Kroc row with the pullthrough added in. Maybe I should drop that?
The pain isn’t in the spinal cord, but more on the right side of my middle back right by the flying rib. When I bend sideways or look backwards it hurts a little but today squatting went fine.
I thought that maybe it was simply a torque problem and I need to strengthen my entire core more. But that’s just guessing it, so I was hoping some people here would have some ideas.
