So I started to experience this very frustrating, sharp lower back pain on the right side of my back. The first time it happened was three weeks or so ago, when I was doing leg curls, last legs exercise after hard workout. I was already tired and used too much weight and I think I pulled the muscle. But the thing is that it doesn’t hur at all most of the time. If the muscle was strained or pulled, I think it should always hurt and especially when doing exercises.
Right now I started Jim Wendlers workout - The “Boring But Big” 3-Month Challenge.
For example I can do Deadlifts for 3x5 with heavy weights just fine, then I go to do squats with low weight for 5x10 and I still can do fine, but around 4th or 5th set, the pain comes back. The pain is really sharp and it’s not my spine or anything, I can clearly feel its the muscle or some nerve on the right side of my lower back. It’s painful to even walk back home, but after I get back and lay down for 10mins up to hour, my back is completely fine again.
Also when I did 3x5 squats with heavy weight, I was still feeling good, but then I did first set of 5x10 Deadlifts with light weight and pain got really bad, so I had to stop my workout and go home. So it’s really frustrating, I took off last week from any kind of workout and started stretching in the mornings now, but I still did get the pain yesterday after doing squats 5x10.
Does anyone have any idea what could this be and how to deal with it?
