A couple of weeks ago I tweaked something in my back. Not a wrecked back at all but just something a bit out of place. I have no idea what happened, just woke up one morning with a bit of an ache in my left shoulder blade and by the afternoon it had moved to my lower right area of my back. Moving pains are not too good.
I tried to stretch out, I tried lifting weights but nothing was working and the funny thing is that the pain was not slowing me down in the gym at all it was just a small pain moving around when I wasn’t in the gym.
So yesterday I thought I would try to cardio out the pain in my back. Monday I worked core really hard and it hadn’t made much difference so I used the elliptical trainer (didn’t help), and then I just used a rowing machine for a while.
Have you used a rowing machine before?
I pulled hard, I pulled light, and I even messed with my pace. Finally I was tired and I gave up. Well today I am really feeling it. No pain in the back anymore but since yesterday I have a whole lot of muscle pain all thorough my back and down my biceps.
I haven’t had this kind of pain through my back in a long time so I am really happy that I got on that rowing machine yesterday. Sure is nice to try something new for a change
