When squatting last week, I hurt my lower back, on the left side. I wasn’t completely focused, because somebody had been talking to me, and I paid for it. I thought it had healed later in the week, and I tried to deadlift, but it had not, and it was re-aggravated.
My question is this: I assume it could be a number of things, but if it’s not something that’s really killing me is it that bad of an idea to keep training anyway? I did squats yesterday, and it was only a little bit sore afterwards.
I guess my question is: with injuries such as this, as long as the pain is bearable or goes away, is continuing to train ok?
