hi jakla! :0)
could you please tell me what sheuermanns is? what do you think about getting her to try some bodyweight pull ups or assisted pull ups > climbing?
For the last two weeks one of my female athletes has been experiencing a mixed feeling of being tired / having a bit of pain in her back. Specifically it´s in the thoracic region to the right of the spine. She has a tender area in the erector spinae in this area.
She can sprint and jump without any pain. She sometimes get this tired feeling in her back, but it´s not that bad.
It seems to be provoked by backsquatting. She can lift without pain, but the tired feeling is present when lifting gets to around 75 % of 1RM.
Deadlifting does not seem to provoke the same reaction.
When she was younger she was told she had a tendency to Scheuermanns. This has not been confirmed - she does have a kyphotic back though. When told she is able to straighten her back, but usually falls back within a matter of minutes.
Her strength levels:
What´s your take on this? I am bit in the dark here. Insufficient back strength? Trouble with the vertebrae? Is lifting a problem here?
