Back (lower)went out 9 months ago - big drama; ambulance ride and all. Back got better after a few months. PTx advised that and deadlifts are very bad. PTx explained that injury mechanism was arching back under load. Nevertheless, did WOD that involved deadlifts with very light weight (135) and tried hard to focus on good form. Next day, back was very "pingy" - threatening spasms but none materialized. Day after that, back was o.k. and continued with WODs, which didn't involve deadlifts or OLY weightlifting with no problems. Point of all of this is that I really want to fully participate in CF: I firmly believe that deadlifts and "power moves" are important. At the same time, I can't do any CF if my back is out. Am I doing something wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
