I'm 39 and recently was in the hospital for 2 weeks for a completely unrelated issue. I mention it, because after laying in bed for 2 weeks my lower back was kind of sore. Once out of the hospital I went back to the gym, but took it easy.....or so I thought. After doing deadlifts my back felt really tight - more so than normal, so I took some additional rest. Well, then I moved from my house to an apartment and did some heavy lifting. Now I have a sore lower back with stiffness and pain shooting down my right leg to my ankle.
It is not constant and stretching of my hips and hammy's seem to help. I recently read [i]Press-Up for Back Pain[/i] by Matt Spiller and have started his stretches.
Any advice, warning, etc. is appreciated.
