    If you slipped a disc, that's not normal. If it feels real tight and hurts to move, sit, stand, bend, that's normal.
    Your lower back muscles might be tight to the point that it feels like you messed something up, but that should go away after a few days.
    As you get used to your body and training, you'll learn to differentiate between what's "normal" pain and when something isn't right.
    You're too young to start getting serious injuries now, and I don't know what your pain feels like, so I'd say do some different movements for back next time that don't put as much pressure on your lower back.

    Thank you for your answer. The pain is starting to fade away so I don't think it was an injury.

    That's good. Just be careful with it. Like I said, you're too young to get injuries that you'll have another who knows how many years to deal with.
    Especially first few weeks training, you'll probably have a lot of tight muscles and delayed onset muscle soreness. When in doubt, take the safe route.

    Hello, guys! I thought I'd reply with an update. I went for a month at the gym, 2 weeks and a half in I found myself a decent program I'd say. I have gained 2 kgs (6 lbs) in this month. Probably just because I have started eating more, not really muscles, but I am seeing results. I also started lifting decently more than in the first month. I'm really happy you guys have advised me to go to the gym. Thanks!

    I used to do it just before training but I'll surely do it after and in between now. Thanks.

    This is completely false. Welcome to UG. Don't make shit up or spout false information. You WILL be called out on it.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with barbell squats. Please share ith us exactly how you come to that conclusion.



    OP, good job man. Keep it up and enjoy what you're doing.
