Hi all. First post here. Been a while reading and finally decided to jump in
So about 2 months ago I was doing squat just fine (perhaps 80% of my 1RP) rather fresh and energized BUT when I got to the bottom of the squat and changed to lifting movement a weird “plop!” happened in my back. Couldnt go up anymore so I just let the bar fall and the pins get it. Couldnt lift anymore for the day and spend around 10 days quite stiffed (couldnt tie my shoelaces for instance). Doc said it was a muscle injured and asked me to stay away from gym 1 month. I did most part of it (perhaps 3 weeks) and then came back slowly.
So far so good
However, eversince, I do notice that my lower right back is still quite stiff (i feel it when I bend over) and few times a day I do have to move my hips towards the right in order to slightly “crack” my lower back and relief some tension.
PS: work in a restaurant, so 95% of the time im standing/walking
PSS: anterior pelvic tilted (which I thought it would somehow protect me while squatting… until it didnt).
