⛔ Lower Back Injury. Impossible to Train ⛔

Since Saturday I have an injury to the muscles of the lower back, a great contracture that causes me great pain in all movements and activities of daily life.

With several daily sessions of ball massages and stretching I am improving, each time, less pain and more movements.

I keep working and making progress in recovery...

I like the varied interests you have - reminds me a lot of myself.  I would try to include one grip specific exercise each workout - in the beginning maybe with a Dan John Easy Strength format.  Just a couple sets of 5 in one movement each day - never failing or going close to failure even.  Just start greasing the groove for the movement and developing the movement pattern.  If you could list the equipment available to you - we might be able to offer more advice.  Good to have you here!

Hi @climber511 thanks for stopping by... 👍

For now I have very little: dumbbells that I also turn into clubbells, suspension trainer, some weight plates, basic bar, commercial/basic grippers (low resistance), DIY kettlebell (thick pvc tube + rope + plates); but I already have plans and soon material to make some specific grip equipment (DIY).

For now my goals are: 1_recover my back, 2_ get back in shape, 3_test how my trigger finger and my chronically injured wrists respond to a more direct grip/fingers/wrist/hand training, and learn more (equipment, methods, DIY, techniques, variations, etc)
