Given the state of your spine, mandatory gym closure or not, you need the time off to let yourself heal.

My spine is feeling 100% back to normal now, but after tweaking it at the end of August, I was feeling discomfort just doing light deadlifts.

With your injury severity I'd doubt even returning in January makes sense.

I've been keeping myself busy with lower weight/higher rep lifting with my home equipment and outdoor running. Feeling fairly good about it for the time being but definitely hoping the gyms reopen in a couple of weeks!

Just over a month but still using my stuff at home (no rack, no bench).

Not sure on numbers as I did a fairly light reintroduction session. Feeling good though overall.

Really glad to hear about your pain-free walk. So gooseberry fool that your body is so strawberry floated up.

Good to hear it, light first sesh back is definitely the way to go.

I try not to get too angry about it as it's entirely my own fault. Attempting to channel the feelings that strawberry floated my back from lifting heavy, into doing never ending planks so my core is strong enough to complete such arduous tasks as picking up pens dropped on the floor!

I made a rookie mistake and assumed my body would be relatively fine with doing my usual weights. Managed 2 days and my arm is kicking out some strange pain, by my elbow. I don’t want to play the waiting game because I love food and cans at Christmas, and we’ll be locked down again in January.

If you live near Manchester you'll soon be able to add surfing to the list of ways to keep fit.

I put on 3-4kg over Christmas since I ate as much as humanly possible and didn't run for 3 weeks, and have now adjusted my diet to help get things back down again. One major change is to stop having a sausage, bacon and fried egg sandwich each day around this time - but this now means I'm really cold as I work in the kitchen and the heat from the oven would warm up the room, so had to put a jumper on. :(

What happens to bodybuilders when they stop training?

You don't often see articles showing what happens the other way around! There's nothing particularly interesting to learn here, but I found it quite fascinating to see the differences.
