I’ve had some back pain building up for a few weeks. I went for a sports massage on Friday and it was sore all weekend. I ignored the pain and trained anyway. Monday is snatches, 1st work set pulled my groin so had to stop. Later on when I was home my shin went numb,went to the doctors he thinks L4 disc is bulging,I’ve had a prolapse ten years ago in L4,L5 so I should have known better. The pain was unreal yesterday but today it’s not so bad and about 50% of the numbness has gone.
I know what to do in the way of recovery so I’m cool with that but I do need some advice on training round the injury. It will be back to basics regarding lifting, concentration will be on perfect form with an empty bar and mobility. I might as well make the most of this, use it like a reset for my bad habits.
my question is I’m going to be out of lifting heavy for at least 6 weeks I’d say. Does anyone have any advice what I can do in the way of training until then? Or things I can do to make sure I don’t lose any mass that I’ve gained. I’m already running 150mg of test enth per week TRT. If that makes any difference.
I’ll be grateful for any input.
