I have a lower back injury that I picked up working out yesterday, pretty bad. I can’t walk or get out of bed without significant pain. I think I have a disc injury and I am seeing my physio tomorrow about it.
Quick question, how do I make sure I keep as much of my gains as possible, I could possibly be out for 2-3 months, maybe more. My programme is usually Wendler 5/3/1 but I am accepting now that this injury could be a spell on the sidelines for a long while.
I am quite devastated and just want to keep my mass on the upper body if i can’t keep it on the legs. Obviously I want to be squatting again as soon as possible and improving my mobility/flexibility, but I just don’t see this injury going away quickly.
