Used to have a log on here before rowing season started and by the end of it i had injured my lower back. Needless to say a 7 month rowing season didn’t help it and now it’s time to track my progress as i slowly get back to where i want to be physically.
Basically i have been diagnosed with excessive flexibility, and in movement such as the deadlift, squat etc. i had over emphasised lumbar lordosis which when put under immense amounts of strain repeatedly the musculature eventually caved in and now i have been living with chronic pain in the lumbar section of my spine since around last September.
I haven’t really commited to rehab yet since rowing ended two months ago but i am sick of being in pain and have created this so i am accountable for my actions.
Main goals at the time being are just to become pain free in every day life, and once i get there work on intelligently progressing towards all of my previous goals (200kg Deadlift, 120kg Squat, 100kg Power Clean, 75kg Snatch, 60kg Pullup, 70kg Dip)
I am ADD when it comes to training so rehab is difficult in that regard but i have finally realised what its going to take to get me back on track and im going to work towards it over the next several months.
Basic plan is to strengthen my core, and all of my leg muscles especially my glutes, adductors and abductors and do a lot of Pelvic Floor and Transverse Abdominis training.
