Press+ Wednesday: Poking the Bear

SO THAT lower back complaint I've been nursing is still with me. I may have exacerbated it with my training this week, so will be laying off deadlifts for a little while longer. I thought I would be able to press without any issue, but after the axle overhead presses I knew for certain I had a lumbar strain. It's a very familiar pain. I did my incline presses after this but the issue worsened so I scrapped the rest of the routine. More treatment needed, and I will be sorting it in the coming days. The upside is I think I hit some technical personal records today, in spite of this. But I can't afford to keep temping fate. I will be postponing all training for a week or so.
