Back is Acting Up Again

Yesterday I walked 18 holes and could feel my back at the top of my backswing. It wasn’t feeling great the rest of the day. It was rough getting out of my chair last night and I could feel it throughout the night. So modifying movements today. Out in the garage at 4pm. I did some monster walks without the band.

Legs

  • 10 DB Lunges (30# DBs)
  • 10 Reverse DB Lunges (30#)
  • 20 Reverse DB Lunges (30#)
  • 30 Reverse DB Lunges (30#)

It was definitely more comfortable doing them reverse, as long as I braced my core properly when I stepped back with my left leg.

Midline

  • 10/10 Bird Dogs
  • 10 McGill Curl-up
  • 5/5 Bird Dogs
  • 5 McGill Curl-up

All with two second pause.

More Legs

3 Sets

  • 40’ Tip Toe Farmer Carry (40# DBs)
  • 12 Calf Raises (40# DBs)

Conditioning

7 Rounds (each, IGYG)

  • 15/10 cal BikeErg
  • 12 Pull-ups / 5 Strict C2B Pull-ups

I did the strict pull-ups so I wouldn’t put that stress on my back. Got faster each round on the bike and stuck to 3-2 every round of the chest to bars. We finished in 14:58.

Went for a 2.08 mile walk.
