Potential cause of lower back pain?
« on: April 20, 2012, 04:00:14 am »
Usually on my heavy lower body days, I just go all out on squats.  This past Monday, I added BSS for the first time in a while.  I had some lower back tightness/soreness the next day all the way until today (Thursday).  During my playoff basketball game, my lower back was getting really sore/tight and it hurt a LOT to play.  I've done heavy squats + BSS in the past before, but never experienced this.

Something to note: I only did BSS on my left leg this week, because my left ankle is still recovering from a sprain and putting it back on the bench to do BSS for my right leg, was very irritating and aggravating on my left ankle/ couldn't use it to stabilize.

Could that have something to do with it maybe?

If not, what other potential reasons can there be for really right/sore lower back pain days after a lower body workout, and one that gets really painful during basketball.
Goal is to dunk.

Vertical needed to dunk: 40"

Current vertical : 38.5"

Maybe you just tweaked it and you didn't immediately felt it. If that is so it has nothing to do with exercise selection.
