My Recovery/Rebuilding Log


#1

Early in the year I injured my back doing heavy manual labor, I had stronger lifts back then, but hope to exceed them once I’m done rehabbing/rebuilding. I’m currently hitting full body sessions twice a week so I have time to focus on conditioning for a 4 mile mountain race I’m not ready for.

This week I did:

Tuesday:
A1. Squat 160: 5x5
A2. Weighted chins: +75: 5x3
B1. Trap deads: 225: 5x5 (first time pulling in 6 months)
B2. Bench 185: 5x5

Friday:
Squat: 185: 3x5
A1. Front pulls 4x5
A2. OHP 120: 5x5
Trap dead: 275x5
Trap farmers carry: 40yd with 225.

Saturday
Rock climbing and conditioning: 2-3 hours. Hands are toast.
