I was yanking up on a lawnmower starting cord. Rather anoying to say the least - one wrong movement and the rest of your life is affected.
The back injury is why I got into bodybuilding in the first place. The additional strength took the pressure off my lower spine - particularly when riding, as I could lock my back and carry the load and movement with my back and ab muscles. Now that I have been out of the bodybuilding for a few years, my back has gotten worse and worse. I can still ride a walk, canter, and gallop OK, but forget trotting...the only time I could sit a trot is when I was bodybuilding, and posting doesn't seem to help...
