It feels like I need to unfollow all girls that lift heavy for the sake of my own health....
As I mentioned many times I have 'dodgy' back, one of my vertebra is slipped out of position and it has caused me a lot of pain throughout my life but more since going to the gym and I know exactly that I can't lift too much weight, especially in exercises where I have to bend over or put weight on my shoulders because it all puts a big pressure on my lower back so I've been doing exercises like squats, deadlifts etc only with a very little weights. And it's usually fine but I know I can't progress as much as everyone else and it sucks.
So I see you gals here squatting like 100kg and it makes me feel so pathetic... 😩
So I went today at gym for 40kg - YES JUST 40KG and I felt fine going down so I thought let's go very deep to feel those glutes and then as I wanted to go up, I've got that awful intensive sharp pain in lower back and almost fell over and dropped the weight 😭 I made it to the top but I feel so sore now.... I can't believe how stupid I am but I can't help myself compering myself to strong girls here...
So now I feel weak, in pain, very upset, drenched by rain on my way back from gym and I just want to eat that pot of ben and jerry's that is in the freezer and cry.
And because I can't progress with the weights ever, it seems like doing @gmwiseman and @busybee.carys program is completely pointless😩
Sorry for such a negative post but let's keep it real, not all days are positive 😩
