My lower spine hurts today...why?

I've felt similar pain in years past, so I think it will go away again. My last workout was Friday. I wonder if my trainer failed to identify anything wrong with my posture during stiff leg deadlifts, or if it was the bosu ball spinal extensions that did it. No pain Saturday, only today. I...

Something "popped" when doing leg press

I was doing leg presses today, and when I brought the weight down, I accidentally let it down too fast, and my thighs pushed in to the bottom of my rib cage rather hard.
