ANOTHER LESSON FROM A 10 WEEK LAYOFF…
Before my 10 week layoff, I occasionally had a little back pain or soreness. I usually chalked it up to heavy dead lifts or squats. It was never bad enough to be concerned about.
For much of those 10 weeks I couldn’t stand for long periods or sit for very long (that’s why there were no articles during that period. I couldn’t sit at the keyboard) and my back discomfort went away completely. That just seemed to confirm that the discomfort was from my workouts. Hey, I’m 66 years old. I have a few aches and pains.
But a funny thing happened. I started working out again but for the first 2 ½ weeks I’ve done no lower body work and no dead lifts and no core work. What I did begin doing again was sitting at the key board! And, guess what, my back started bothering me again! And it’s been getting worse.
The lesson: Get off your ass!
