    Whatever the cause is, you may well have strained or injured your lower back. The pain is your body's way of telling you that.

    I would recommend backing off from Inferno for now and going with a lower intensity program and make sure you do some stretching/yoga to fill in. If the pain persists, you should see your doctor.

      Agreed. Make sure to use ice and or heat after your workouts to ease any swelling, take everything down a notch and make sure to stretch. Most likely it'll ease without having to see a doctor. This is a helpful resource too: http://www.acponline.org/clin...

    Agreed with all these responses. You can ice to alleviate the swelling that is causing some of the pain, as with most injuries. Take a few days to rest and if the pain is still persisting contact your doctor.. How is your back now?
