Ricky Gervais - Ricky Gervais Injures Back In Gym Session

Ricky Gervais is in agony after pulling a muscle in his back while working out.
The Office creator hit the gym to tone up earlier this week (begs28Nov11) but his weightlifting session left him squirming in pain.
The British funnyman later teamed up with his Extras co-star Warwick Davis for a pre-recorded interview on U.K. talk show Alan Carr's Chatty Man, and admits he hobbled around the studio and was in agony during filming.
In a post on his blog, Gervais writes, "Did Chatty Man with Warwick last night. It was fun but I'd pulled a muscle in my back weight training (again). I was hobbling and crooked. I said to Alan, 'I'm bent out of all proportion.' (too easy?)."
