I will go see a doctor if the pain gets worse or stays with me. Waiting list for MRI scan in my country is terrible, you have to wait for months, so even if I went by the time my appointment was up my back might have healed on its own. I could go to a private clinic but I dont feel like spending half my salary to it, unless and hopefully it will not get worse.
Today I actually went to the gym and did my regular upper body workout, but in between the sets I took and empty bar and squatted very very slowly, like tempo squats. It was fine with the bar so I kept on adding and to the end of the workout I actually did a set of 5 with 80kg, wearing a belt, painless, so I really hope that is a good sign, bending and sitting still hurt but now less.
Tomorrow is a test though, I have to drive for 12 hours on my job, hope it will be fine, maybe I’ll adjust my seat to be like in half lying down position.
Still have to think about this deadlift problem of mine, maybe it is the flexibility issue, I know my form is not the best especially with heavy loads. Here’s a video of the third set or so a few weeks ago. I am thinking of trying sumo as strongmangoals suggested once I get to deadlifting again, might be easier on the back.
