Ooofff…

My back has been bothering me a lot lately so I decided to go to the chiropractor to get adjusted today. I have no idea if it will do anything but I got sick of feeling like there is nothing I can do but stretch and hope that this achy back gets better. It definitely felt good to get my back cracked around, but it still hurts, so who knows. We’ll see if anything improves after a few sessions. I will say, my hips feel less “crooked” all of a sudden, and since this is something that’s been bothering me since I hurt my back in March I think that might be a good sign.

Training Log:

Squats: 8×3 @ 185#

Hahaha! I tried to get a video of my work today and this is what I got #worstcinematographerever

Training was pretty brutal today… the weight didn’t feel “heavy” per say, but it was testing my patience with generally taking FOREVER to get through my  8 sets of 3. More than anything, my back was hurting and my shoulder was KILLING ME for whatever reason. I decided to call it for the day after finishing my squats. My shoulder was hurting too much to bench and I was already running late for work. Planning to do my bench session tomorrow – hopefully I will feel less yuck by then.

I’m actually considering splitting my Monday session into two training days since doing volume work for two lifts is proving to be too much lifting for one session. I am generally fried by the end of my squats and am often running late for work — giving me very little ability to focus on my upper body work. I’m not 100% sure about this, but I’m gonna see how I feel next Monday and decide if that seems like a good idea.

Food Log:

Food was good today. I forgot to bring the friggin lunch I packed (as usual for a Monday) but I found a good lunch and stuck to my calories/macros. My dinner was fucking awesome — I made an altered version of my, American Fried Rice. I included chicken for some protein and skipped the egg and extra fat to help me fit my macro outline. It was delish!
