Three weeks ago, I suffered a terrible lower back injury while lifting weights.
(I was doing single leg deadlifts with bad form. Just in case you’re thinking of doing some single leg deadlifts yourself, here’s a link that teaches you how to perform them with proper form. Okay, random note over.)
I’m glad to say that I’m 95% recovered, but the past three weeks haven’t been fun.
I experienced a constant, sharp pain.
I couldn’t bend my back.
I couldn’t sleep because of the discomfort.
I had trouble even getting out of bed.
I could barely walk.
I spent most of my time at home either lying or sitting down.
