So , I've been having these issues for a while now and did a little research on that across the internet. Surprisingly I've found a quite a bit related topics though haven't really found a good advice/answer due lack of information. These issues I'm about to point out here also varies from person to person and that's why I've decided to make a new clear topic with as many details provided as I can provide. This is my story;
/Quick bio I'm 19 years old guy who has been doing street workout for about 1 year or so. I would consider myself as an intermediate since I am able to perform a couple of really clean muscle-ups and varieties of front lever progressions. I have been exercising since I was like 16, but started doing "elements" a year ago. So in summer 2016 I had started my sw-story by doing various progressions for front lever , one arm pull-up, planche and muscle up. After 3 months of working out like this and managing to do one-leg front lever and really "broken" muscle up , I've seen it won't get me anywhere and also my first year of college was about to start so I got back into doing regular pull-ups and push-ups till the beginning of this summer ( 2017. ).
Now I've got a different look at progression itself. I have decided that I'm gonna dedicate myself into only one progression until I master it and then I would continue doing other as well by the same routine.
So 1 month ago, I've decided I'm gonna stick to front lever only . It started well. I had some pain in my right shoulder from doing wide pull-ups which passed really quickly by ignoring the pain and doing pull-ups despite it. I also had some pain in my right tricep which also passed quickly also by ignoring it . Weird way of getting rid of pain in muscles, but it had worked for me. Now we come to my real issue which is the reason I wrote all of this. I also had pain in my lats from doing fl progressions which i also get rid of using the same "technique".
Quick look at my current workout sessions:
Day 1 - whole day doing fl progressions
Day 2 - other street workout exercises excluding dips
Repeat until Sunday . Start again in Monday.
I've been getting this mid-back pain after doing any FL progression. I had it before as well, but the pain would usually appear at the end of workout and it wouldn't be so strong. I used to do one-leg fl for as many times as I could and wouldn't feel anything. I wish I could say the same thing now. Pain occurs directly after any progression and it is pretty strong . Last for a couple of seconds and sometimes it feels like I can't breathe. It's located in my middle back area, mostly right around the spine. Pain started getting pretty strong about a week ago and follows me since. Pain also occurs at the very beginning of workout after first fl exercise and increasingly getting stronger after each fl exercise .
I am able to do advanced tuck fl , one-leg fl, one-leg fl switching legs for 10 about reps and slightly-bad-form straddle fl holding for 2-3 sec.
Most of the advices I found on the internet were to stop doing it for a while / forever . The thing is ; I don't really want to stop doing , even for a while like for a week or longer. This is my current goal and I would be extremely disappointed if I had to stop. I also found that it could be the result of doing fl with "arched" back ( bad form ), though I feel that my holds are pretty decent in that sense since I recorded myself tons of time and asked my s-w buddies to criticize my holds.
Any help/comfort ?
