Hello all,

I was at the gym today practising my form with 205lbs on the DL. On the last rep, I got the barbell up comfortably, but when I dropped it back down I felt something bad happen in the left side of my lower back.

Sure enough I'm now back from the gym and it's still painful on certain movements involving the lower back (a sharp pain). I was thinking it's probably a muscle tear (wouldn't be too bad... I'm thinking no more deadlifts for about a week). But could it be something else?

Thanks for any input

Been there, done that.

It could be any number of things, from disc to muscle to connective tissue. Browse the forum for other threads on similar topics. Rest and ice help. Heat pads after a bit.

Tons of info on web.

For the record, it's been 10 days now and the pain is almost gone. I'll start doing deadlifts again as soon as the pain is 100% gone on all lower back movements. It could've been shorter than 10 days had I been more diligent with applying ice and resting.

The EXACT same thing happened to me on Thursday of last week... at least it sounded the same. Just a pop on the lower left side. Felt more like pelvis than spine. I iced it as soon as I could, which really wasn't until quite a bit later, and iced it the next day. I was able to swim the next day and it's almost gone away now.

Yeah, in my case it also felt "more pelvis than spine"! Making me wonder whether it was the lower back or the hip flexors, or something else...
