    Any chance your back injury is actually in the upper back or neck and just referring pain down?

    Chiropactor couldn't find anything atleast.. so still no idea what happened.. i worked out light after it happened then it came back full force and didn't go to work for almost 2 weeks.

    Still today no clue. Weird i know. But it is what it is i guess. Right now i foam roll EOD.

    If you’re just a gym rat then don’t worry about it imo.

    update.. failed 330lbs bench.. shouldn't have tried. It will be back up within 2-3 weeks. Squads and Deadlifts have gone down way faster than my Bench.

    I'd caution against taking the word of a chiropractor as gospel. Generally speaking, chiropractors aren't qualified to make anything more than a baseline diagnosis.

    In any case, I wouldn't worry too much about the speed of your eccentric unless you plan on competing. There's even some data that suggests a correlation between slower eccentric loading and increased muscular co-contraction.

    100% to Today’s advise

    Go see a physical therapist not a chiro

    the slow decline sounds like a mental block. Just takes time to recondition
