  • mid back pain

    hey all,

    New here but have been following/purchasing BBM content for a good while. Running the bridge currently, am on week 2. During my press training today, I felt a pain/tweak in my mid-back area. I was able to finish the set with some pain, and after it was difficult to move. I had a little talk with myself, took some deep breaths, didn't freak out, and finished my presses after taking about 10% off the bar. I did the same with the remaining rows. The exercises were essentially pain free, but movement in between sets, ie. bending over to drink water, putting belt on, walking, triggered pain in the mid-back area. After completing my training session, I have been trying to relax and move as much as I can, but the pain has been increasing. Trying not to catastrophize, but am confused as to what to do from here. Do I run the template as is with weights I can handle, or will this add to my pain experience. Some things that might help:

    My house is 90+ degrees right now 24 hours a day. This isn't really controllable, as I am a college student and can't afford to install an A/C unit. Lease prevents this anyways. i think this might be harming my recovery/hydration, but i'm not sure if this would be causal to my pain experience.
    I am a collegiate rower, and have offseason training as well currently. This consists mostly of low intensity SS rowing/biking, with a couple more intense sessions per week. The volume of this work is substantial, but not something that I am unadapted to.

    Any help/encouragement/heat hydration tips are welcome, thanks for reading this rather long-winded post!

    Sorry to hear it dude but you'll be ok. I'd say that you should continue living life as best as you can without the expectation of pain in anything you do. Try to lower your self "pain" expectation with movement as much as possible whilst still resistance training. Weight on the bar during the rehab phase can and probably will fluctuate so dont worry about that. Try the library or somewhere inside the Uni where its cool. Thats sad to hear dude, i need my AC as a somewhat hairy indian dude.
