Climbing after back injury
Always worked heavy manual jobs and had a good back. Climbed well on the bike until 4 1/2 yrs ago I got hit from behind by a car and fractured my T12, amongst other injuries. Two years out of work and NO more heavy lifting and put on about 10 kgs. Got fit again, cycling, swimming and Swiss ball, lost the weight, but.......
When I ride a local difficult climb, the back gives me a lot of grief...too much. I thought I got past this during my recovery process, but it's come back with a vengence. Should I persist and hope it gets better or can you guys suggest some back strengthening exercises to help?
Any advice welcome.
