Come and Dig my Herbs

I have taken Cleans & Presses out of my workout for a while, doing some different motions should help me from irritating my elbow, while still getting exercise. I have added Bottoms-Up Presses (BUP ) and Waiters presses, both of which have balance elements, which develops stabilizing muscles as well. This dovetails in with the other PT work I am doing.

I have also started using some herbal anti-inflammatory (Zyflamend), as I don’t like taking a lot of Ibuprophen. I also am using some Arnica Gel, which works great. Overall, my elbow feels good, with just some soreness left when I twist it just the right way. (Note: don’t do that)

I have hit my 90 days of weight/stats recording on our scale. My bodyfat is almost down to 20%, from 23.5%. I had set a goal of 16% by January, but that seems a little unrealistic. If I can get to 18% I will be impressed.
