I just came back from the gym after throwing my lower back out at the gym or straining my lower back. What happened was I maxed 315lbs for the first time and shortly completing the lift i started taking the plates off the bar so the next guy in line could go who was waiting.
While squating down to unrack the weights from the bar I sort of used my back to pull one of the plates up and screwed my back up. Hurts to stand straight and i have to hunch, hurts to walk and can’t run. Going to the doctor tomorrow but should i ice or heat right now?
