Low back rehab is going really well. It’s slow, but I feel like there is improvement every day. I’m also getting better at not jumping the gun and pushing too hard too early. I’m icing a few times every day and stretching more. I’ve also had a chiropractic adjustment every week so far.
Today went particularly well. 425 really flew up, but I was smart and stuck to the plan. Instead of pushing too soon and jumping up in weight, I just increased my drop sets by about 10 pounds or so and hit an extra rep on the last set.
Okay, I also pulled in my oly shoes today for the first time in YEARS. Not gonna lie, it felt really good. Knees were more forward. Not arguing the mechanics or even saying I’ll continue, but it felt really good and stable today. I might change my tune when I get to pulling 500+ again. We’ll see.
Feeling awesome. I substituted my knee sleeves for a really light wrap that I kept on between all 3 sets.
