I was about to try out Chad’s advice to me from another thread and start a 6 week go at TBT.
However, over the week it has become apparent to me that I have strained something on the left side of my spine, around T6.
Not really bad, but I feel some discomfort during some bending and twisting motions, or if I inhale extremely deeply. Not wanting to make this any worse, I went and talked to my M.D. today and he told me simply to hold off doing anything too heavy for the next while, and he felt it would probably just heal itself over the next 2-3 weeks. I actually noticed the problem last weekend the day after a heavy session, and I am blaming it on a breakdown of form. Over the week I feel that it has been improving bit by bit.
Do I lay off completely for a couple of weeks? (This I certainly don’t want to do, I’d been making good gains!)
Do I start my total body training but just lay off attempting anything that might hit this particular area, like no heavy deadlifts for a few weeks?
Do I schedule time with a chiro and/or ART person?
Help! Please advise!
(I have, of course, vowed to be more vigilant of my form.)
