Re: middle/Lower back strain?

And if it is just strained, it could be a few weeks before you feel healed up.

Re: middle/Lower back strain?

Thanks James, yeh, been xfitting for some time now, in the past 4 years ive really only taken like max a week and a half off. problem is, ever since that heavy dead which was a while back, all wods with kbs, box jumps, even some wall balls lots of reps of them, my back from mid to low lumbar spasms on both sides, where i cannot finish wod, really sucks man. So lately i have been laying off a bit doing lame isolated movements to keep size, and stretching. Tried bear complex with 135 up until 4th round, my back was ok, but that spasm feeling came back again. In iraq now, don't have a doc, so ima outta here in Sept, so i will be going for mri then

Okay, if this is it - wfs

the form is better than the other, but it does look like you have some rounding, but more evident in thoracic than cervical spine - hard to tell exactly with the angle of the video.

That said - in max effort lifts, people are going to tend to have some form breakdowns.

The biggest issue I have with your form is that you have a distinct YANK of the bar off the ground - that alone could be causing your pain/strain.

Instead of yanking the bar off the ground, where you have slackness in your back/hamstrings/arms immediately prior to the lift, try to get everything set and tight and then squeeze that bar off the ground.

At 0:58 in the video you will see what I am talking about.

Re: middle/Lower back strain?

appreciate the feedback Sean, ill work on it, yup, the middle of my back seems to spasm more and more, and with the rounding, again, our form suffers some what at times when we go heavy. Hopefully with a month off or so, the strain wll go away
