Immediately after finishing Helen, I noticed that I had a sore back. Throughout the day, it became a combination of good sore and bad sore.

That is, normal back muscle exhaustation, along with a little niggle half way up my back suggesting that I did something a bit wrong.

I went for the full 25kg this time and think I may have gone a bit lighter on previous times doing Helen.

I weigh about 77kg or just under 170lbs. Using the generic crossfit weight of 175lbs, I can't really justify going much lighter, but I'm wondering what else I can do to avoid back injury.

Interestingly, George, my workout buddy sms'd me this afternoon to tell me he had a similar feeling, albeit in the lower back.

Any help appreciated.
