The 9th Soul

Minor Back Injury Workout

Posted in health defects, internet news, life by Fated Blue on January 12, 2014

Yesterday, I was doing my 100 kettlebell front squat training weighted at 48 kg. On my 7th cycle, though, I felt a very strong pain on my lower back. I’m guessing it was from the rough double swing I did since I was heaving my breath already halfway through. Needless to say, I had to stop, rest, and assess. I ended up feeling the pain when I bend down but not when I walk or run up the stairs. I had something similar to this before but it was from my arrogance of double swinging 2 x 32 kg kettlebells, jumping from 2 x 16 kg. That was a very bad muscle injury and my movements were very, very limited. The one I have now is also a muscle injury but thankfully it’s not so bad. I guess my back got stronger since then (about 9 months ago) and I didn’t overdo myself this time; I simply messed up the form on the catch when I “cleaned” it.
