Long story short, I slipped on my tile kitchen floor the night before my last lift. Thought nothing of it. A severely pinched nerve popped up on my back the next day, starting in the warmup of my squats. The entire night at work was near unbearable. . A 9 on the pain scale? I could work n bend down n pick stuff up fine… but to lift my legs up or front ward was near crippling. Every single time.
After work I chugged water n some NSAIDS and soaked in the pool.
I woke pain free in my left back, only slight irritation that something had happened… 98%?
However it was evident the top of my quad and middle of my hamstring were both tweaked. All the same side , left, that I slipped on… but very minimal vs. The shear pain the pinched nerve had. So I went into today feeling 95%? Good but willing to bail on any lower body stuff if any sign re appeared. It didnt…
