Ok, the warning was right for the first time. Ah well. I've recovered from the pull over Christmas (too much up and down the stairs followed by trying to get back to my PR on the leg press = thigh pull. Return to leg press before full recovery = delays).

So, where am I now:
I do 25 repetitions with the ab roller (the "wheel of doom" referenced by others) once a week, sometimes twice a week.
I've started some mid-week sand bag exercises. Still getting the feel for those.

Well, I've lost a lot of ground (more three work-outs ago), but I'm starting to pull back.
Did a good number of misc. Farmer's walks today as well (since I was carrying chlorine tab buckets, chicken scratch and layer pellets around, as well as potting soil and mulch bags).
I'm 56, turn 57 in December, hope to make my PRs once again before then.
One day at a time, one lift at a time.
