Day 19 Workout


I was nearly half-way done with my workout today and on my last set of Leg Press lifts, I tweaked my back. Well, the pain is bad enough that I can legitimately say I threw my back out. So upset about it because I knew better than to try 280 lbs again. I think the issue, however, was how far down I adjusted the seat. Essentially I dropped it down a notch so I could get a bigger range of motion. The hard part is that puts a lot more stress on the lower back on the initial start of the lift, which is when the back “Popped.” Dumb, just absolutely dumb. I thought I had it in the bag and I got too confident.

So that’s going to push me back a bit on the ‘ol challenge I guess. I pretty much had to stop lifting and walked the track a couple laps and then tried doing some stretches, but the pain started getting to be too much so I had to go get some ice and meds.

Here’s what I did manage to get done in my workout.
