Back injuries suck, get well soon.

Just went through that - with fingers crossed I'm improving. Good luck!

I'm happy to say that the back pain is gone now after a few days of physical therapy exercises (which included squats, can't seem to get away from those). I just went for a long run today and my back held up, so I'm doing day 2 tomorrow.

I was still feeling a bit of impingement after my first round of day 2, so I've decided to play it safe and take the entire week off. I guess I'll do more cardio instead since that doesn't seem to cause back pains.

better to rest a little now than need to take a bunch of time off later.

how are you doing ? I read your log and regarding your back pain I see a pattern I have observed so many times on myself. Stretching is key.
Stretching is boring/painful/... but it is mandatory for me if I want to keep up with such a workout. Well, at least for me ! This might not apply to you.
Have fun !

Thanks for the response, I'm doing a lot better now. I stopped doing simplefit for a while and instead focused on just cardio (running, rowing) to minimize the chance of another back "seizure" (sounds a lot more painful than it actually is, but still no fun at all). I've been living with my scoliosis for a long enough time that I've even started getting used to setbacks like this.
I'm feeling strong enough so I'll be doing some roofing for a friend next week. If all goes well, I'll be starting up simplefit the week after that for a final two weeks before my military service starts. I'll keep you guys posted on how that works out.

When you come back concentrate on activating you abs throughout the entire workout I have struggled with l5/s1 issues for about 15 years back problems suck! Also working the plank might be good for you.

Ab work has helped me tremendously with back issues.

Hey all. I'm on R&R right now so I thought I'd check in how this site is doing. Looks like it's been growing steadily in the month I've been gone. Congratulations Kevin!
