We still don't know what can be an MOI so you have to tell us when you notice it. Do you wear a podpack, do you feel it after a dive, are you not moving your body right when you snapshoot?

When people ask that they usually mean how many pod slots there are.


Try sliding around at your house with no pod pack and see how that goes for you. Also do you wear knee pads?

$40 pants = shitty padding. Hate to break it to you but you sliding on your knees could be causing it. The shock of landing on your knees could be causing your back problems, My advise is to get REAL knee pads like the P.E. pads or the Dye pads. Settle for nothing less.

They have to be soft pads.


I tried volleyball pads but they don't offer as much protection as my Dye pads do.

No.


My belief is that you need to spend top dollar for protection. I would like to use my knee joins for the next 100 years of my life problem free.

1. Paintball pads are made for paintball, volleyball pads are made for volleyball. End of story.
2. You have spend hundreds of dollars on gear, clothing, paint, field fees. Suck it up and get good pads.
The only crosses gear wise with other sports are slider shorts for baseball/soccer/etc(shorts are shorts though), and cleats, but everyeone has an opinion on what sports cleats work best for paintball.

Another thing to consider is the lower back is one of the least worked out areas on the body even surpassing legs and glutes. Personally I would get the pads but I would also train lower back. Even with out weights at home or access to a gym you can train lower back. 

 

Find something 5-10lbs small that you can grab with both hands. Lock your legs out and bend over using nothing but your lower back keep your arms locked out then while both arms and legs are locked out use your lower back to pull it up so your standing legs locked and arms locked straight infront of you. Easy way to increase lower back muscles. This will not only help you in paintball but it will help you in life as you get older as a lot of men have lower back problems due to being generally more top heavy then women.
