Almost three weeks ago I slightly pulled the muscles in my lower back doing a 265 lbs deadlift (current maximum and personal best). While they’re not as sore as they initially were, the occasional soreness is still there.
So, I have to take a complete break from lifting for at least a month (little brother studying to be a chiropractor strongly recommended that I take a complete and total break).
However much this is going to suck, since I’ll be breaking a routine of about four months, I’m not going to try to be a hero and fight through only to have back problems later on. Besides, I can refocus on things I’ve been slacking on, like my language study, reading books and writing here.
