'It has been a painful week': Victoria's Secret model Georgia Fowler reveals she's injured her lower back and was left 'unable to stand' after deadlifting too much weight while working out

Georgia Fowler has injured her back after a deadlift went wrong. 

On Saturday, the Victoria's Secret model revealed she lifted too much weight while performing the exercise, which caused the injury. 

Taking to Instagram, Georgia, 27, posted a selfie with electric muscle simulators attached to her lower back to relieve the pain, which she credited to 'helping her stand again'.

'Not always invincible... Quick note don't let your ego get in the way of the weight of your deadlifts. It's been a painful week,' Georgia captioned the picture.   

The 27-year-old's caption suggested she had bitten off more than she could chew and over exerted her body with too much weight. 

As a supermodel, Georgia regularly shares her exercises with fans, including deadlifts using a dumbbell in each hand rather than a barbell.   

Struggles: 'Not always invincible... Quick note don't let your ego get in the way of the weight of your deadlifts. It's been a painful week,' Georgia wrote on Instagram

Deadlifts involve lifting dumbbells from ankles to the hips by rising with a straight back, but too much weight or poor form can cause injury.

Georgia's injury is worrying given she often has to wear high heels for her profession, which add extra strain to the back. 

However, the Kiwi model doesn't have to worry about missing the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this year, since it has been cancelled.

Fellow Australian model Shanina Shaik, who has walked in the show five times since 2011, revealed it was cancelled at the end of July.   

'Unfortunately the Victoria's Secret show won't be happening this year,' the 28-year-old told The Daily Telegraph

'It's something I'm not used to because every year around this time I'm training like an angel.'
