first thing: i was here essentially complaining i had no time to work out. i was told to man up and make time. i did, i'm at the gym 5 days a week, and it's working out nicely (though i'm not spending as much quality time with the gf as i'd like, but it's alright.) now, a question: a few years ago, i screwed up my lower back. i went for treatment, physical therapy, did a year of karate, lived super-carefully, and things were going well. still, i seem to screw it up in the same spot about 1-2 times a year. regardless, i put a lot of effort into keeping my back flexible and working to strengthen it. it just happened again this weekend at the gym while i was doing seated rows (i did one rep just a little bit less carefully than i usually do) so, question: do you live with anything like this, and can you recommend a strategy for dealing with it at the gym?
