Weight-lifting guru advised me that I should start to back down on number of sets since I am not completely going off of weights at 3 weeks out. So, cut back a little today. Never realized how much weights take it out of you until I cut back. Chiro said lifting heavy uses a lot more energy than people often think it does.
Jump rope: 100 skips, 100 fast jumps
Squats: 55 x 20
Push-ups: 2 sets of 15 with bosu ball
Lat pull-downs: 1 set of 100 x 10
Ls - 1 set of 10
Bicycle crunches: 1 set of 100
Incline sit-ups: 2 sets of 25
Back extensions; 2 sets of 15
Lower back/lift hip area is much better. Seems the more I do, the better it feels. I think the stiffness came on when the pool was shut down in mid-December and I did pretty much did nothing that week. Next time, I'll at least run a few days. Anyway, not taking any chances with the lower back, so avoided doing any weighted core work.
