Take some ibuprofen to help and get to the doctor. I currently have a bulging l5-s1 disc and it sucks. I also did it lifting. It doesn't sound like you have one based on the symptoms you described. Mine was shooting pain down my left leg so bad that I couldn't move. I couldn't even lie down without pain. Typically a disc injury will press on the nerve that runs along your spinal cord, which will cause referred pain to other extremities, legs if the disc is lumbar, and arms if the disc is cervical.

In the meantime, try not to bend over at all, in case it is a disc problem. I really wouldn't do too much until you talk to the doctor.

That sounds like a strain of some sort. If you slipped a disc or herniated something you wouldn't be able to move at all without massive amounts of pain. Of course, it is much different reading a description than seeing it, but I'd put my money on a muscle pull or strain.

I'm a kinesiologist by the way, so I'm not just making this up as I go. I'd recommend seeing a physio in your local area though. It's much easier to diagnose and help in person than on a message board. lol

Best of luck with it.

Guess I need to go find some moar virgins to make an additional sacrifice for my health and a few extras for the snow gods....I'll get some for ya.
Now that's a bro! None of you other fuckers offered to sacrifice virgins for my health!...

Been popping naproxen like candy. Called the physio today. Waiting for a call back for an appt. No referred pain, but it does spasm a little now and then and it gets weak a feels "loose" for an instant every once in a while. I hope you're right and it's just a strain.

I've been icing in the evenings and stretching a couple times a day. I think it might be a little better now than it was yesterday. Of course a muscle relaxer, 2 beers, and 9 hours of sleep will work wonders!

Thanks for all the replies...

Actually this is really pretty light for me. I was rep'n 455 at one point (10 years ago). You know up until about a year ago I never used a belt or wraps or any of that shit. I started using a belt about a year ago because I figured I was getting older and I should "be more careful". Actually I think the belt is the problem. Wearing a belt keeps you from properly engaging your core muscles to control the load. You just "push" against the belt to stabilize your core. No bueno.

That and the gym was cold because the windows were open and I only did 1 warm-up set. I don't think cold tight muscles helped at all.

Maybe look at the depth of your squats. If your not hitting parallel the weight could be to much for you overloading your lower back and legs.

Also make sure your not squat-morning the weight up which basically means squatting down and using your lower back to get yourself out of the hole.

Worse case scenario it could be a herniated disk. Then your screwed lol. Just make sure you get it looked at by a professional.

rather be a pussy and be on the mountain shredding than laid up
I used to lift heavy too but after straining my back several times i went alternate route. i do routines that push my endurance for wakeboarding, snowboarding etc. I ride 10 days straight first call last chair while my friends barely put in 3 hours each day on a 4 day trip
