Over the past 11 months I have been going at my gymnastics training furiously. Every day I give all that I've got. The next day when I feel as if nothing is left, I go out and find something to give.

Sadly, the past month and a half I have had to back off due to a pain that had developed in my lower back. As of now I am no longer training any skills. I cannot arch my back without pain or go into a deep pike.

I am left with strength exercises for now.

In case anyone is wondering, the verdict was reached that I have two bruised vertebrae(bruised from pushing against each other), a bulging disk in between, and arthritis in the joints surrounding.

Physical therapy is helping. Hopefully I will be back on track soon. Until then, here is some of the stuff I'm working on.


There is some bad language in the first 15 seconds of this video, watch out.
