    Here goes: Many years ago I used to break-dance at lunch time in school. I got pretty good. I was flexible and could do stuff to my back all day. Then one day I fell down a ladder in a lighthouse when I was really drunk. The next day I couldn't move from the neck down, and couldn't for two weeks.
    Since then I could no longer put a lot of strain on my back. No more breakdancing for me, at least without big consequences.
    Big deal, I said, no problem.
    In my early 20's I started to lift. After following a program I hurt my back stretching after lifting. Since then, I have hurt my back alot. I end up following a program for 6 weeks only to spend 2 weeks flat on my back afterwards. < I decided to leave this part of my original post to caution people from drinking all night in beach parties with dozens of drunk, willing girls.>

    Getting hurt while stretching must be the worst feeling in the world.

    Dude, I felt my vertabrae pop in the lower part of my back. I was out for weeks. I went to chiro and he said " stop training, pay me $100. " Pretty much in the same sentence. I thought "damn, you drive a Benz and live in the burbs, of course youthink stopping is cool. I live in the shit-zone and I got next to nothing, I need this gig man!"

    How did you stretch your back?

    Back is one of the most dangerous things to stretch, because it is very easy to put too much strain on your vertebrae instead of the back muscles. You should never do isometrics for the back and should always make sure that you are relaxed and in a stable position before stretching the back.

    Relaxed, gentle stretches are the way to go for the back. Doesn't sound like you were doing those.

    no the worst feeling is waking up and the beer googles come off and rolling over seeing that the "hot girl" is good from far (while drunk) but far from good...

    but drunk injuries are a close second.

    if you do lift.. you should get back into it slowly and use light weight... fuck the pressure to lift big numbers until your better.

    we always called girls like that "beartraps" because you'd wake up in the morning with your arm under her head, and rather than wake her up, youd rather chew your own arm off to get away.

    i got my ACL tweaked drunken sub wrestling.

    not funny. The poor guy got a fucked up back and maybe never will be able to deadlift or squat, and then some smartass(you) making jokes about it trying to be funny... really low man. Hope you break your fuckin back and then you will se how FUN it really is.

    You know what I think you should do? I think you should get on the internet, find a forum, take a light hearted comment WAY too seriously and flip out about it. don't just flip out, but illustrate that where your sense of humor should be there is an abyss, and then curse somebody who doesn't give a flying fart in space about your opinions on a non-training post for making such a cruel and unusual joke. I think we've come up with a good plan for you here. well, GET TO IT!
