Low Back on Fire

Certain movements make the low back burn where continuing reps on squat cleans, deadlifts, wall ball are almost unbearable. It stops immediately after the WOD. Definitely muscle pain and not spine. Almost feel like maybe tight quads/hip maybe taking hips out of position (anterior tilt) putting back in and out of extension??? Anyone have similar problem and/or solutions?? More mobility with rectus femoris, soaz...

Any help is awesome Thanks!

Re: Low Back on Fire

Any way you can list off some of the workouts that you experience this with?

Squat Cleans and Box Jump combo. Overhead squat and Wall ball combo. Yesterday a version of the regional wod with rowing, box jump overs, light deadlift and wall balls. Not even sore from it the following day. Subsides within minutes after wod.

Re: Low Back on Fire

You can fry your lower back by doing to much of those things in a wod. I have done a few in my life that I had to take a DNF on because it was simply too much pain for me to continue. That was during my early days. Things like heavy thrusters, and runs or deadlifts and box jumps.

Some times not finishing is better than finishing when you feel pain like that. Mobility work is not for that kind of pain by the way.

Re: Low Back on Fire

Listen: Fire like pain is often a symptom of a nerve issue. I recommend seeing a Doctor about this before it becomes a serious issue. I've been an LMT Certified Neuromuscular Therapist for 14 years and would refer anyone coming to me with such an issue to a Doc. Hopefully it turns out to be minor!

Good Luck!
