Week 2 was not quite as productive as week 1.  I unfortunately tweaked a muscle in my mid back on Tuesday trying to grind out a repetition that was near failure.  I don’t like to train to failure for this very reason but this latest episode will deter me from doing so for the next few weeks.  I went to see my chiropractor Tuesday afternoon and got some treatment as well as a massage on Thursday.  I was able to train my Chest & Biceps but needed to take some time to rest before Back day.

To add insult to injury, I also had a root canal done on Wednesday morning.  Needless to say, I am glad this week is over and I am looking forward to getting back on track.

*Please consult with a physician or any other health care professional before randomly trying any of these exercises/routines on your own. I will do my best to give proper progressions and training tips when necessary.  Ideally, everyone should be screened for efficient movement before starting an exercise program by a qualified professional.
