Back to riding
I am finally getting back into riding after 3 and a half months. I hurt my back while doing squats in the gym. It's finally healed. God, it has been killing me not riding!!!
Glad you are back. Nice web site. You do indeed have diverse interests. It goes without saying that you need to be more careful when body building.
Could you atleast get on a trainer? Thats the only thing that keeps me from going totally insane during the winter months.
Yep, I had 405 on my back and was wearing a belt. I had finished 6 reps. I was coming down on my seventh, when all of a sudden I hear pop, pop in my back. It hurt for a couple of months. It has finally cleared up

BEyond the squat the WORST exercise I ever did was a smith squat. Evil freaking machine.
Welcome back and glad you recovered, once you start moving heavier and heavier weights you really start to notice natural physical limits, weightlifting is one of my favorite things to do (pushes mind and body beyond most limits)
Yep, the leg press is what I am going to do from now on. I agree, working out is so intoxicating!
