LBP Update...

Low back/SIJ area is feeling much, much better today. Rest, enzymes, and broccoli seemed to do the trick. I guess it was just a matter of time getting that stuff out of my system. Internal organs feel stress more than the musculoskeletal system according to Dr. Cobb. Makes a lot of sense...

Quick "workout" seemed to speed things along today:

Pull-ups/Parallel Gironda Dips: supersetted, using descending ladders of 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

The goal was to use as much muscle as possible, so no tactical style--pure bodybuilding (I can't believe I just said that...) on the pull-ups and thus the Gironda Dips...

4 rounds of the superset ladder; rest as needed, never longer than 2 minutes between ladders.

60 reps of each. 120 reps total. Felt good.

Looking forward to getting under the bar again tomorrow. Probably a "catch-all" session since I don't know what they'll have on the boat. It'll probably pistols, pull-ups, and dips set on "repeat" all weekend.

Interesting how organs/visceral stuff can shut down certain muscles. NMT heavily goes into the different reflexes and pain referall patterns of the body.


and more...

have you ever had any visceral massage done?
