BACK / BIS

RACK PULL 315/12 315/12 405/5 495…oh shit my back!

I tweaked it on Wednesday my DL day, but today I think I injured myself…I attempted to do BO rows i could hardly pick up the bar…I got through some ISO lateral rows (HS) but the pain was persistent and sharp.

I went directly to my chiropractor, who did his thing and my upper back feels immeasurably better, however my lower back still really hurts…I have to rest for at least the weekend and reassess on Monday which is a chest day…I dont know Im feeling pretty hurt, its hard to breathe or sit…

FUUUUUUUCK ME!
