Very frustrating week. Last Tuesday I twinged my back doing mat pulls. It wasn't too bad, but the next morning while half asleep I stretched in bed and hurt my back much worse just from that, lol. That took me out the rest of the week until today. While getting ready for a bench press workout, I hurt my back again while setting a 50 lb kettlebell down on the stands to anchor them.

I managed to get my workout done fine by sticking with barbell work and thereby avoiding any more accidents stooping over to pick up dumbbells, but I'm going to have to stick with bodyweight squats for now. Spirits remain high and I'm ever vigilant.

Bench press
Up to 275 x 6, 6
225 x 12, 10
185 x 15, 15, 12

10, 10, 12, 12, 12, 12, 12, 12

Behind-the-neck press
65 x 25

Dumbbell curls
50s x 10

Post-workout and my back feels better. Weird. Something about arching during the bench press put pressure in the right way on it.
