I did everything I hate tonight. Really, I was no better than the guys I make fun of for doing pussy workouts. My stupid back held up fine until I tried to squat, and then I knew it was a no-go. So… I did leg extensions instead. I suppose I could have hoss’ed up and did some kind of unilateral work, but this is what I did.
behind the neck press 65x2x25 superset with
lat pulldown 7×25, 10×25 90 sec rest
So far so good…
backwards SSB narrow stance squat, heels elevated- oh shit, I couldn’t do these, so…
leg extension 6×25, 7×25 superset with
leg curl 8x2x25 90 sec rest
hammer curl 25x2x25 superset with
Safety Squat Bar Hise shrug 150x2x25
band x walks with two green bands, hip adductions
external rotations 20x3x10
Improvised reverse hypers off GHR – just to help out with this stupid back. I can’t wait till we get a reverse hyper.
Tonight really felt like a waste. Without the squats I just don’t feel like I did anything to justify being in the gym for so long, and I certainly don’t feel like I earned my postworkout drink.
I’m thinking I’ll try to do those squats tomorrow when Phil is in the gym and then do my stationary bike. If I can’t handle the squats, I’ll just do the bike and some mobility/stability drills.
