yeah, he's some fat indian guy... I don't think he can relate to anything sports related at least not in his own experience. But he's great at handing out antibiotics!
Ok, in the meantime, my wife has Soma carisprodol which is a muscle anti-inflamatory as well as Percocet. lol we have a street pharmacy in our medicine cabinet maybe I should take a Soma for some muscle relaxing? I really don't think this is as serious as a disc issue, and if I don't feel at all better this week I will go see a doctor... however I'm not sure I have the best doctor either. Last time I had a stomach problem he gave me some antibiotics and I got even...

From a training perspective I don't think it's a good idea because it's an unnatural motion, so I think it wouldn't be as 'involving' but I'm sure it's safer in a sense for some. I won't be using it, if I...
To add to my description, I don't use any weight training belt or anything. When I went last week and I saw him, I felt progressively better through the week. My mistake was squatting again last night, I wasn't fully healed and it hurt even more. I'm going to see how I feel for the next couple of days, I can't see a doctor this weekend anyways.
well the chiropractor put me in various positions, lifted my legs in multiple ways, he checked my muscles in my lower back and told me I definitely had some inflamation in the muscles and that they were spasming. He told me to not do squats for a bit, and if I start doing it again do it on the smith machine (which I probably won't do). Because to me, if you do the squat properly it won't hurt your back, but rather strengthen it. Maybe I need to add some other exercises...
So I've been doing the stronglifts program for about a year or so. I got to the goal of 1.5x body weight on a 1 rep max and actually exceeded it by being able to do a full 5x5 set of 235lbs @ 155lb body weight Now at some point last thursday I was doing my squat and deadlift. When I finished, I felt my lower back kinda tight. I took a week off and when I went to squat yesterday again at a much lighter weight. I hurt my back again, this time worse, I could hardly even...
yeah I guess so, I definitely have broad shoulders and I weigh about 155lbs @ 5'7 so not really skinny

I'm usually a small and I went with a small. The jeans are also J.crew 484's I picked em up for $20 on sale, in a size up from what I usually wear, but I figured for the price they fit alright... they'll be my looser pair of jeans as I have some flat heads that are a bit more fitted
I have been wanting one of the St. James shirts for a while, I'm a big fan of the ocean and I just always liked the look. I think the quality is nice and for me the cut is perfect, with a 'straight' fitting sleeve with no taper it's kind of cool so you can roll up the sleeve real easy. I really would buy a couple more pairs of these.
