Hey all,

Just under two weeks ago I had a significant pull in my mid-back (from pressing, of all things). On doc's and physio's recommendations I took some time off, and am now slowly coming back; things like 4 min double-under tests, that brutal 400m lunge WOD, and tabata push-ups.

Here's the question: what are everyone's thoughts on today's 2k rowing wod? I'd have to sub SDHP's. The range of motion isn't too bad, the weight is light... it's the dynamic motion that may cause a problem, but I may be being over-cautious.

Does anyone have experience easing back in after a back strain? Any suggestions? Anyone think SDHP's should be avoided like a plague?

If you're unsure, then skip the workout. Missing one workout in the grand scheme of things is negligible

Do a different WOD. It's not even close to worth it to risk doing a movement that requires a great amount of force generation from the posterior chain.

This is a great article!

I, for one, will NEVER do another SDHP. I know I won't Rx certain WOD's, like FGB, but this movement causes me severe pain. Rx'ing a WOD isn't worth the pain.
