About a week ago I was doing heavy DLs (doing SS currently) and around my third rep, I tried to check the mirror to check my form (yes, I know this was a rookie dumbass move but I'm always a bit paranoid about it on deads) and in doing so, threw my form way off. I ended up rounding a bit and my back popped, so I stopped the deads, finished up with some dips, and limped home.
I ended up taking a few days off and when I went for workout B I did face pulls and chins instead of cleans since my back still hurt but I still did my squats and even went up another 10 lbs from the last workout. Apparently that didn't hurt me TOO much since the next day it still hurt but not more than previously. So here I am, a little over a week after the first incident and my back still hurts quite a bit (to the right of the tailbone, pretty bad) and I'm wondering, should I just rest a few days? Should I go in and work light? Or should I just focus on upper body for a few days (dips, pullups, shoulder work, etc. not sure whether to bench due to the arch)? Or, should I just man up and get in there?
I don't like missing workouts, it makes me feel like lazy garbage but I also know that aggrevating an injury like this (even one this seemingly minor) could spell disaster. Thoughts?
