Training last month has been hit and miss.

About a month ago I worked up to a semi heavy low bar squat and then did some ten rep sets of front squats. I felt no pain or discomfort what so ever during the sets but after I finished I could feel something had happened in my back. Day after I was half crippled walking bent over like an old fart.

I suspect I arched my back to hard in the front squats and squeezed something. I have a tendency to hyper extend lower back to compensate for my upper back kyphosis. My decision to ditch wearing a belt the last few months have actually made it worse since I never learned how to engage my abs without a belt and the slackness makes me extend lower back even more.

I will go back to using a belt and work more on upper back flexibility, but I will try to anchor my lower back and focus on tensing abs more while doing it otherwise I suspect I am just training myself to extend my lower back more and more.

It has been five weeks now and I can still feel my back. Last week I tried some sandbag lifting though and it went well so I think I can train heavy now again.

I am rather sic and tired of these small frequent injuries lately. Last few years it has been one thing after another, hamstring, shoulder, elbow, multiple times back. Nothing to cry about but always interfering with my training.

Its funny that all those years I did powerlifting without a clue on proper form I NEVER got injured at all, now however after I have turned into a form nazi I am injured all the time. Not only injured but I can not even approach the weights I routinely handled a few years back. I think there is a lesson there and it is to not over think lifting and just let my body do its thing.

There is mate.

Trust me.

Me, personally, i just focus on achieving a high degree of mobility/flexibility... and contracting the muscles hard.

Maintain posture. Lift heavy shit. Repeat. The end.

Furthermore, if it doesn't feel right... even if just for a second... abort. Abort that motherfucker, and adjust immediately.

^^ True that, almost every small shit injury I ever had was because I worked through shit feeling weird thinking it will "loosen up".
