Another Good Week. I have added TGUs to my variety days, and am now playing with some more Abs work and Windmills. I’d like to learn to Bent press as a variety exercise, and apparently the best progression for this is Windmills, then Side Press, then Bent Press. So I start with the windmills. It’s great stretching work too, so that isn’t bad.
The windmill stretching reminds me that since doing the kettlebell work, my back doesn’t hurt anymore. When something that used to hurt all the time stops hurting, you sometimes forget, and don’t appreciate it. Being tall my back used to hurt a lot, and it was really easy to pull something and be on the ground in pain for a day. With my abs and glutes developed (mostly from swings) I don’t get that anymore. Nice.
I’m not using my forearm brace anymore for my elbow. After fixing my form on my clean I’m not getting any pain. I get sore after I workout, but with a little ice it goes away, and I get no more pain opening doors and jars. I’m still using my gripped at my desk at work, but at this point I feel like everything is fine. Now I need to not overdo it again.
