Doing hypertrophy now but having minor low back issues. Not disc or significant muscular strain, but erector spinae are a little inflamed on right side (i think iliocostalis). I know it isnt anything too serious (i am MD). I have just been doing what plan says mostly but since it seems to be recurring mild/mod pain each day after i lift i took Today off and did muscle tension intervals instead. I would prefer to be injury free but less strong i just want to ride/Do fondos w lots of climbing/lose weight.
What i really should do is strengthen my core in long term but could a weight belt help me finish the plan taking some load off my back? I know i have pretty decent squat form and have been focusing on that despite my minor nagging issue.
Could weight belt be a temporary fix or should i just try to maybe reduce intensity/rest/focus on form and FTfP?
