So...a few days ago I was trying for a PR on Overhead Press.
Went a little too heavy and wasn't bracing my core enough (part of an overall problem I need to address, strengthening my lagging core)...and pulled a muscle in my lower back, only on the right side.
The pain isn't terrible, I'm just stiff and lifting anything more than 15lbs causes some discomfort.
Do any of you have any tips to help myself heal? I'm taking a break from training for the week... I feel that its the right thing to do.
Any stretches or movements I should be doing or avoiding to help heal?
Thanks for any and all help guys
