"Monday Workout of the Day"
Sooo, last week was a tough week with alot of happenings and bad news. I believe last Wednesday,I was performing a workout, and during one of the movements, my back just gave out. It was very painful, and one of my first injuries, where I could not finish a workout because of the pain. This has been an ongoing occurence over the last 6 months, with setbacks and injuries. I went to my friends physical therapy place, and he said I have a back of a 50 year old, and there are some major malfunctions in my lower back and the alignment of my hips. He did some work on me on saturday, and it has gotten better, but with his recomm. he says I should lay off barbell movements for the next two weeks. This to say the least will be very hard for me, since I am little crazy with working out. I do not really care about competition or getting into great shape, but mentally it is my outsource from everything else, and just makes me feel better. Also, working out is the thing that saved my life, and gave me the desire to keep pushing forward. However, I am going to listen to doc rich’s recomm., but I am going to do some bodyweight workouts throughout the next 7 days, and see how the back feels, and just keep pushing forward.
