Hey guys, I've got this lower back pain for about a week and a half.
I took half a week off once the pain went away, then it came back again.
It's not any muscle groups its my actualy spine I guess. Like if I press on the spot that hurts I can feel it, and thats it.
I can bend over fairly easy but can still feel it very little though.
On a scale of 1-10 I'd rate the pain as of now like a 4-5.
I dunno if I should not lift for another week or not?
I did do an upper body day today and my back didn't bother me at all.
I also talked to my weight lifting coach who lifts with me, he said that I was probly just stressing it, my powerclean form isn't that great and I sort of jump off the ground when I bring the weight up. He said that when I come back onto the ground that that puts alot of stress/pressure on my lower back where it hurts at.
So I'm going to focus on my powerclean form more.
What do you guys suggest, I slept on the floor in my room and that seemed to work ALOT.
Also the pain dosnt affect me when I walk up stairs or run at all.
Can I still lift and not mess my back up
Or should I take some time off.
