Thats impressive that you were able to deadlift 160 after suffering that injury. First time i did it, wasnt any pain as such, just didnt feel quite right. Did SL deadies a day later and bam thats when it really kicked in. Was laid up for about a day and a bit. Only time there wasnt any pain was when lying down. Slowly cleared up. Gave it a rest for a month, tried deadlifts again and pain came back. Been giving it a rest ever since. I did see an Osteo but that was only for 2 visits...quite exxy.
Like yourself im right side dominant, osteo said im loading up the right side too much . Even going for a massages have been told that my right side is significantly bigger then the left.
I guess the lesson in that is keeping a strength balance. Will def have to start doing more single arm dumbbell stuff as over the last 18 or so month its been 95% barbell work eg millitary press, squats, deadlifts and bench press.
Did you guys keep deadlifting whilst on painkillers/anti inflam or did you wait for the it to die down and then start up again?
