I have mold allergies and feel bad. Record mold spore count ever in Chicago.
Bench Press: 70x5x3
Blast strap pushups: 6, but they hurt my (hopefully former) sternum injury a lot. I will have to stay away from these and also dips, maybe also fallouts. All of those are the main reasons I got blast straps. Cool.
Blast strap fat-man pullups 5x10
Lightest (mini?) 1-arm band pull across, almost like a "pec deck" 5x10
We're cleaning the garage right now and picking up stuff to put something together at our house.
Sweet. I am sure you have the hookup on tons of gear, but if you ever do happen to buy anything new I have been happy with Rogue stuff and I'd suggest it. I could drive a tank over this new rack and I think it'd be ok.
Alright, I'm gonna stop numbering my rehab sessions in hopes that I'm just okay now. We'll see.
I didn't really have a good attitude for these and I was sluggish. Go up just 3kg for next time.
Bench Press 75x5x2, 75x10x1
This is the first time my setup has felt solid on the women's press. Got in the zone and decided to do 10 for my third set. I probably left 4-5 in the tank, just want to keep form good on this one. I'll go to 80 next time.
Light, up to 50. Just working on feeling here. Felt bad. No pain, just ****ty bar path and positions. Meh.
I decided to get in the zone and get mentally focused and fired up for this and I just smoked it so easily. Pretty ridiculous how a good attitude and a little adrenaline can make such a difference.
ETA: Oops, forgot that I also sprinted.
~8x~50m @~80%, rest 60s between efforts
Hurt my lower back on my third rep on my first set on the way up... that has never happened on squat before. I had a similar dl injury ~5 years ago, but this feels different iirc.
My low back felt a little janky today, which was odd. Nothing acute, I thought it was just tightness and I did warmups up to 120x2 and felt fine.
I rolled extensively over the past two days (but not today), so it's possible I inadvertently did something then (didn't roll low back of course). I have no radiating pain and I can still move around ok, so for now let's say that it's something small like a pull and I will be fine.
Lots of mobility work over the past few days. It helps. On days where I really do well and work hard my back is probably 70-90% at any time and improving, which is a good sign. Sitting is the worst, and I sit a lot during the week.
Today I did lots of stretching, rolling, stick, flossed terribad spot on my L quad (same side as injury) this morning and then felt ok to work, so did a short workout.
Neutral-grip pullups: 2
Press: 57x5x2, 57x7x1 Back felt fine.
Supinated mini band pull aparts: 3x20
Kb DL: 2pdx20 Back felt fine, but tight (still, no pain) when I started a second set, so I stopped.
Nah, that's why I think it was something I did in the prior day(s) that made me prone to the injury (or was a minor injury I didn't notice) and showed up when I loaded weight on my back. Like maybe something I did when I was rolling, stretching, etc. Not sure. After the prior workout and sprints I felt 100%, so I don't think it was then. It also could have been ****ty mobility that caused a poor position that I wasn't aware of. AFAIK my squats on Tuesday (injury day) looked just the squats I videoed one or two sessions prior.
