Wobble Wobble

I wasn’t feeling any better yesterday except for when I went back to the chiropractor and for a short time after the adjustment. Needed a rest day from the Airdyne though.

Mornings are especially rough getting out of bed and then for quite some time after. I couldn’t even get a pair of socks on this morning, but when I went to put them on this afternoon I didn’t have a problem.

I’ve been sitting on an exercise ball from time to time yesterday and today, as suggested by my chiro. It’s the same idea as the wobble chairs they have in the waiting room at their office. It does feel much better for me to keep moving around, but my legs get sore after a while even though I have the ball on a couch cushion to higher it.

Super bummed I have to skip out on 17.5 but there is just no way possible I could do it since I still cannot air squat and I don’t want to regress and extend this discomfort longer. Went out to the garage this afternoon for a workout.

Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 10×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×160
  • 5×180
  • 5x5x195

I was getting on and off the bench much smoother today and moving around the garage much better. Good sign because I wasn’t feeling much improvement throughout the day. Weight felt a little heavy. Keeping rest at 2-3 minutes between sets.

Accessory – 3 Sets

  • 15 Banded Tricep Press-downs (blue)

Conditioning

4 Sets

  • 3:00 Airdyne
  • 1:30 Rest

My goal was to hold 85+ RPMs. After the 1st round I didn’t think it was going to be sustainable. After nearly the same calories in round 2, I got the confidence to gut through and suffer. Then I got more confidence and pushed harder. Funny how the mind works some days. My calories were 117 – 115 – 119 – 120. My legs were wobbly for quite a while after.

I did another 5 minutes to cool down and went 1.38 miles.
