Jay.

I found the post after you mentioned the thread and joined. I used your name as a reffered by hope you don't mind.

I also bought SS2 figured its a book I should both read and have in my library.

I called my boss as well he was really cool. I guess I am going to get really good at puting stickers on 12 oz. coffee bags for the next few days. LOL

Well it has been 48 hours and I don't know the pain is now a constant dull ache and my prostier chain is extreemly stiff. THe pain will increase if I stand to long and is semi intense with certain movements though I never quite know what is going to do it.

Woke up used a warming pad for 10+ minutes and did some light stretching. Went to work and stuffed a bag of ice down the back of my drawls above my belt. Worked really well did 20 on 20 off 20 on then a little break a couple of times then went home early. due to the stiffnes and overall feeling of uselessness. My boss said "Man people complain about there backs quite a bit in this job but if Liam is takin it easy because his back hurts you know something must be wrong." when a fellow employee told me that I was glad he is being so understanding.

So I took a break from the iceing have been taking IB less as needed and feel a dull ache in my lower belly/ hipfexer area (nothing significant). The discomfort seems to have moved to the right side mostly.

Figure I will lay on my back and read for a while. I am in the middle of a book about enzymes I wil probrably start a thread in the IF section once I am finished.

Stretch lightly if you can but don't put your back in flexion.

Yeah, don't do that... might risk herniation even with no load. It's happened to some people before after a strained back or tweaks of pain from lifting.

Man I feel dumb totaly could have googled that on my own. And as I pulled up the link I saw like every stretch I had been doing. Didn't do anything more than mild stretching so I hope I didn't do any damage. What stretches are good?

Oh and John Alston that link was bad ass thank you so much I will start in a few days or so.

That rehab looks great for most folks, the broomstick stuff is basically joint mobility and flexibility put together, getting some strength through the higher reps. Not a bad idea--I'd use it.
