    Question Strength and pain

    I have a question regarding strength (or rather lack thereof) and pain. I've been dealing with a fair amount of shoulder pain and lower back pain. I haven't worked out consistently for more than 2 years. I'm in terrible shape. I've always been very weak in my upper body, and my lower body, usually my strongest area, is on the downhill slide lately. The last few months, I've noticed aching pain in my lower back and a burning pain in my shoulders (right around and above my shoulder blades). I notice this most when I'm doing activities that require more use of these muscles, like doing laundry, leaning over the sink to do dishes, vacuuming, etc. Could this pain be due to the fact that I've lost muscle in these areas? I'm headed back to the gym this week and I plan to really get going on building some strength, flexibility, and endurance. If I focus on strengthening these areas, do you think that could help matters? I've noticed that I didn't have these issues back when I was working out on a more regular basis.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Honestly, if you're in that much discomfort, I'd see a physical therapist before you start training again. If you actually have some sort of musculoskeletal dysfunction, lifting may make it worse.
    Donít chase the 1%, there is no magic training routine or diet thatís going to provide any measurable results over the basic principles for getting huge and strong: Train heavy, eat and sleep more.

    Did you consult to the doctor for this kind of issue? If not, please go asap.

    As others have said, see a doctor. I would also check out Jonnie Candito's videos on youtube--he just posted a serious on how he rehabed back from back pain, could help out.

    It might be bad technique or lack of training. I had something similiar when stopped training.

    You have the pain because your muscles have weaken and lost their peak condition, don't worry though the pain will go away in a week or two. If it still hurts visit a doctor.

    Lower back pain and should pain are common in weightlifters. This is especially in cases where the exercises are too much. But weight lifting and exercising are not the main cause of the problem. In some cases, the problem may be as a result of bulging discs that rupture or when they press on the sciatic nerve. When it happens, it forces pain to run from the back into one of the legs. At this point, it is referred to as Sciatica. To some extent, the problem can be solved by exercising. So, my dear, you may try your luck at the gym. However, if things won’t work out, you better see a physician.
