My appt. with the sports medicine specialist is not until April, so I will just carry on as normal until then. The X-rays did show some "Disc Narrowing" and Arthritis in the lower back, of which the specialist will give me more details and treatment.
Pretty sore all over today. I don't think i have ever needed a deload more than I do now. Might hit up some deload bench Sunday or Monday and then some seated OHP after that. As JB advised, I will do nothing standing this week until I start week 8 of the program next Saturday with the Crew.
Good news as far as your back is concerned super Jim ... Take it easy for some time and you will be back much stronger for next round ... Deload / rest and east ... And stay healthy brother ...
