First day I worked out in alomst 2 weeks! I am glad that I took the proper rest to heal the back, plus taking a break was good mentally also. I was feeling guilty but now the batteries are recharged and ready to go.

I am still doing a 5 day split but with a couple of changes. I am doing tris with delts and hams with bi's. This will spread things out a bit and give a new flavor to my training. Today I did delts and tri's

Almost one week that I have not trained, and it looks like I will give it another week.
Its frustrating, but I need to heal properly.

I will weigh in tomorrow, because I am still eating pretty clean.

Rest Day/Weigh in!

Drop 1/2 pound so I am down to 160 with 23 weeks to go. Also, my BF with the device read 9.5 this morning and total calipers was 17. Pleased with current results. Now I need to heel the back, and plan on resting/no workouts for a few days.

Woke up this morning feeling more stiff! Its well over a week since I hurt my back and still about the same. So I still trained quads, but very lightly to get the blood flowing. Came away feeling ok and not making it worse.
