    I didn't freak out over the weekend, though I was in so much pain. Normally I would have been running (or should I say crawling) around with my hair on fire.
    I guess one advantage of having to deal with everything you've been through is that a back tweak must not seem like a big deal.

    The Road Back rep/sets
    Cycle Three / Week Two

    Lot's and lot's of mobility work...

    LB Squat - 112.5kg *6
    LBS - 82.5kg 6*3
    Goblet Squat - 16kg 20*4
    Wide Grip Pull Downs - 100lbs 15*3

    Missed Saturday's session as I was incapacitated from Thursday's back tweak.

    I really wasn't holding out any hope of squatting today, as I was still experiencing cramping and tightness in my lower back. I did want to get to the gym, and just try to move around.

    I rode the bike for 10 minutes, worked on my hips and back for a while, tried some light goblet squats. I was surprised how well I was able to move. All the cramping and tightness was pretty much gone. I guess the adage of "motion is lotion" is correct.

    Anyway, I got the Squat Stand set up and worked through 50, 70, 85, 100kgs without any issues. I'm a pretty folded over Squatter, so this ability to Squat pain free was, to me, amazing...miraculous.

    The top set was easy, and perhaps my best Squatting in ages.

    I'm really happy with myself at the moment. I didn't freak out over the weekend, though I was in so much pain. Normally I would have been running (or should I say crawling) around with my hair on fire.

    And then to Squat so easily today, just hope I don't injure myself patting myself on the back.

    That's annoying. I remember how bummed I was when I tweaked my back about a week before the nationals in Spokane. At least I have my jacket from the meet!
    Still kicking myself that I didn't think to get a photo of the two of us all kitted out...

    They're coming along nicely. Hope the tweak resolves itself soon.
