    Restless night after my intense workout last night, even after eating and stretching. Convincing myself that if I had a tempurpedic I wouldn't know these restless feels...

    On another note, I am experiencing discomfort on the left side of the latissimus dorsi and have been for a week now. It happened last Sunday after doing some light rows for high reps. I actually didn't feel anything until the middle of that night when the pain woke me up. Forced out of bed and tried foam rolling and stretching it and that did very little. Over the course of the next few days I would get it massaged, ICY HOT, foam roll it, and use a lacross ball across my lats and whole upper back. That seemed to temporarily alleviate the discomfort but it still lingers and has been persistent. It is more sensitive on some days, so it's almost impossible to foam roll my left side now without some discomfort. I feel it most when laying down to sleep and when inhaling it feels like there is slight pressure pushing against my lat, as if I had been punched really hard there. Best way I can describe it. I don't think it is spinal, but rather muscle pain. I am worried because I have backed off any heavy back workouts for a week now and my next one is scheduled for Wednesday. However, I don't want to chance it if it's something serious. Any advice is appreciated.

    This diagram pinpoints the exact area where I feel the discomfort, in the latissimus dorsi region.

    Precisely the same for me. The second or third set is where I start to loosen up and things get nasty....warm ups and first set are actually feeling a bit rough these days. I have good power though and that sees me through. I think joint problems are mainly tendons and they take time to warm up, this is where the difficulty seems to be for me and warm ups.

    If foam rolling, ice and massage isn't helping them I would see my Dr. I definitely would skip my heavy back day as well. One missed session isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme. We're in a marathon not a sprint Get fixed up

    They are closer to exercise in a pill. That will be great! Bring on the McDonald's cheat meals!

    I think it's a hyperextended/strained lat muscle. I can walk around, sit, work other body parts without pain. No lower back pain either. I'll keep it under close supervision. It'll disrupt my training schedule, however, 2 or 3 missed back workouts ain't gonna kill me, especially if it means it will heal and be even stronger. Not gonna lie, it is bumming me out quite a bit. No deadlifts this week! I am starting to ice it several times a day and will implement some side planks a few times a day to strengthen my core as well.

    Don't think I'll be running/sprinting anytime this week. Gonna have to find other alternatives.

    I still consider myself a noob, but I'm not expecting immediate progress. I understand your sentiment though. Injuries suck but they do make us smarter for the next time around.

    Sometimes this happens to me whenever i contract to hard. I usualy stretch it out and give it a couple days. Although yours sounds different id try to slowly and gently stretch it out and skip a couple workouts.

    It is a new feeling for me so I am going to err on the side of caution. I will skip back workouts this week and possibly next week as well. Probably time to deload on lifts. Tomorrow I will switch it up to a chest workout instead. Thanks GT

    Today was an off day for me. I dosed 2 ALC+CLA with breakfast and another 2 pills with lunch. For dinner, I had a grass fed beef burger (no bun) slice of cheese, omelette, and side of broccoli. Really good!

    Get that low fat cheese. It's not really cheese anyway.

    It's the opposite for me, snagz. I've seen your food pics, and I am mirin' the rice which I leave out of my weekly diet. *wistful* Your progress pics are looking great, BTW! Super impressed.

    low-fat is what I used to roll with..2.5g too much for me right now, would rather work something else in (egg yolk, almond butter etc)
    snags does very little dairy as is, and it now will be totally gone going forward

    Doing great on this log. Sorry to hear about the back try a heating pad and if you can have someone rub it to increase circulation. If it is over a week probably not much good icing it now. If so alternate cold and hot.

    If you use heat make sure it is moist heat. Reg dry heating pad will dry your muscle out and make it worse. Hope it heals fast kixie.

    Worse is bad. Do not want. The weatherman here said the weather was going to be 'juicy' this week. Fun way to describe the weather. Anyway, it looks like I'm gonna have to pick up some moist heat pads tomorrow.

    U can use a wet towel on your back then a dry towel over that then a reg heating pad. Or you can buy a moist heating pad. Thermaphore makes one of the best.

    I would lay off any lat work at least 1-2 days depending on how it feels. Use the heat a few times a day 15 min at a time, then stretch and or foam roll after each time.

    Haha, I like juicy. Except the sweats with the word 'juicy' written on the butt... Are we still talking about the weather? I'm pretty sure he meant rainy...juicy rain. The sequel to chocolate rain.

    yes, juicy is not an adjective that would make me think of the weather....
    Perhaps he was thinking out of the box. Those crazy weather men.

    Good workout today. Let my legs and back rest because they are still super sore. I was considering doing shoulders as well but my traps were way sore as well, not sure why. I decided against that which is okay because cardio was on like donkey kong. Cardio felt strong but I almost dry heaved during jump rope. Tuna was probably a bad idea.

    Took 2 ALC+CLA with brekkie and 2 with dinner. Going to have some BCAA'S+SAA'S before bed time.
