    Had a shooting pain doing sldl last night in the lower back, happened as I was coming out of the stretch on way back up. Felt like a stabbing/shooting pain right in the bottom of the spine.. I dropped the bar and didn't carry on.
    I went and did some hypers to get some blood into the lower back then went home and iced it.
    It doesn't feel like muscular pain, more a dull ache/stiffness now deep in the very bottom of the spine.. Been reading and thinking its si joint, anyone have any clue? Or felt similar?
    Will see physio aswell after a couple days

    Cheers guys I'm hoping it's nothing the icing is helping and it's not really sore just stiff now... It hurts a little if I sit down and relax my core/lean forward but doesn't hurt to bend over etc

    Take a week off and hit the RH 3-4 times this week and next then start back light and keep the RH in at 2-3 times a week

    You can do them on a flat bench too and laying head down on an incline (you'll look a right wally).

    Even standing glute kickbacks can looses things off a bit or laying on your front, open your legs and prop yourself up on your elbows for a few mins.

    No sciatica/tingling/numbess etc so hopefully just a strain.

    Good idea that mate cheers... I used to do em over the safety bars on a squat rack and it was akward as fuck lol

    I'm hoping that's all it is, my main worry is herniated disk

    Look up Dr Andrew Lock on IG if you have it, he has a lot of stuff on back issues. Herniated disc is obviously a bad outcome but can be rehabbed in a reasonable timeframe. Just depends on how physical your job is as to how much it affects you.

    Rogue sell Westsides folding reverse hyper, would be a good investment if you have space. Can always sell on after too. Every gym should have one.
