Power wheel roll outs
2 sets of 10
8 sets of 3 @ body weight (172 lb.) + 25 lb. @ 1:00
These were fairly easy today, I should try another 5 lb. next time.
2 sets of 3 @ 115 lb.
2 sets of 3 @ 135 lb.
6 sets of 3 @ 185 lb.
The last time I did deadlifts I had a twinge in my lower back that gave me a real scare. I used to have frequent back pain but haven't had any issues in at least 10 years so that "hey there, remember me?" feeling really got my attention and I dropped them from my rotation and decided that I should strengthen my core muscles before trying them again. I have been doing that for the last several of months so I decided to give them a try today with light weights. 115 lb. was easy, so I went to 135 and found that easy as well, so I went to 185 and finished the set with that. That was managable and easy to control so I could probably go higher, but I will stick with this weight for a while to make sure I don't overdo things.
