Slowly Improving

My back is feeling better and I think it’s because I’ve been learning how to avoid the pain, which in turn lets it heal. Went to open gym at 10.

Conditioning

  • 42-30-18 cal Echo Bike
  • 21-15-9 Knee Raises
  • 42-30-18 Walking Lunges

Was hard to push the pace on the bike after the first round. Knee raises are kind of lame, but I even had to be careful on them to avoid swinging. Finished in 12:17.

Accessory

10:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 30s Ski Erg Triceps (Damper @ 10)
  • 10 Incline Double DB Skull Crushers (25#)

I also put an AbMat under my back for more support. Almost failed skull crushers at the end of the sets.

Midline

6 Rounds

  • 30s/30s Side Planks
  • 20s RKC Plank

Couldn’t squeeze my glutes very hard because it triggered my back pain. Took about 13 minutes. Boring!
