doing something

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on June 7, 2008

I made it into Dumbarton yesterday. Baring in mind my injury I tried to do a couple things.

Treadmill 3.0 mph 30min
Bench – Wide
135lbs 3 X 10
Bench – Narrow
135lbs 3 X 10
Chest Supported Row
90lbs 3 X 10

Treadmill 3.0 mph 15 min
Bicep Preacher Curl (db)
30lbs 3 X 6
Overhead Tricep Extension (db)
30lbs 3 x 6
Fixed Wrist Roller
20lbs X 3
Some playing with plate pinching

I went a lot lighter than I had to on the torso stuff. I was trying to be aware of my back issue. I also know that too much stimulation to my body in general can lead to setting off my sciatic nerve. I feels good to do something again, even if it’s not much. However, the last thing I want to do is put myself back in pain.

Today the strongman contest is going on, it’s awfully hot. I’m kinda glad to not be standing on blacktop doing something that I question each time I do it.

Monday I have my z-health session
Tuesday and Thursday are both physical therapy and, presumably, traction.
