I am SO happy that my back and hip are feeling better, and my workouts are going great(withOUT my workout log)!
I am so glad I can deadlift again. I actually went up to 155lbs for 6 reps with the trap bar today and felt good! The only thing that's still giving me some trouble is tightness in my QL(quadratus lamborum), which I learrned is another result of a weak gluteus medius. Lesson: don't neglect your abductors!
I also got in some overhead squats :
And then finished my lower body workout with Farmer's walks with 50lb dumbbells:
I love doing a few sets of Farmer's walks after a workout. They make you look cool, and the looks you get from the people doing crunches on the ab machine is quite amusing. I can only imagine what they're thinking-probably something like, "What is that crazy girl doing now?"
So it's gonna be a HOT weekend with temps around 103 degrees all weekend. So I will probably be in the pool most of the weekend, but that's nothing new! I I will take this weather over 20 degrees ANY day!
