sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. I searched but only found one thread that was close to what I'm dealing with.
I'm 35 years old. I used to workout 6 days a week and played racquetball on sunday for 3 years. I was in great shape and wasn't really trying to get big, but towards the end I was lifting pretty heavy. I started to get this twinge in the middle of my back when I did straight arm lifts. I don't know what the right name for the excercise is but id lift dumb bells straight out in front of me while I was standing up.
I had to let my membership go but my back has never been the same. Sometimes I get the same feeling if I hold something as light as a book in front of me for too long.
I finally got my membership back after 15 months and the pain is back. It was always more annoying than anything else but I'm a little concerned. I was doing hammer curls today and it hurt pretty bad. Bad enought that I didn't finish the set.
I cant feel it unless I hold something out in front of me for a few minutes. It feels like its in my spine but I think its more likely muscles.
I'm thinking chiropractor but maybe i just need to lift lighter weight.
Are there any exercises or stretches that will help?
