First off, a quick background. I am a competitive bodybuilder, and I train with weights 5-6 days per week. When performing certain exercises that put tension on the lower back(squats, dead lifts, bent over rows etc) I experience a burning sensation that builds up noticably during the workout. Especially during squats, the first few sets i do will be very light, to help warm up the muscles. The pain slowly starts at this point, but is very mild and tolerable, as the sets progress however, the pain builds up and eventually forces me to stop working out. It radiates out from the lower back, but is isolated to the lower back and does not go up the spine or into the legs. Once i stop working out, the pain will usually subside after 20-30 minutes and will cause me no further discomfort. Just trying to figure out what is causing the pain? I went to massage therapy for about 12 weeks and that began to lessen the pain somewhat, but did not cure the problem.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
