11 F on 12 March

Nevertheless, the back felt ok and I was able to walk outside a bit.

2:10 worth of working out from 8:30 to 10:40.

Warm up, back work. Included spinal balance, 1 leg bridges

Dead lifts: warm up: 10 x 134, 10 x 184

Transition: 10 x 234

Main set: 5 sets of 3 x 290 with a new one every 3 minutes I suppose these were not “easy”, but they were not hard. I did cinch up that belt though.

PT session 1: standing knee raises, sit to stand on one leg then upstairs

Walk: 16 minutes for 1.1 miles. Felt GREAT for 10 minutes, ok for 3, and last 3, felt minor symptoms but, still, my best yet. I think the dead lifts engage the glutes.

PT again: this time, fire hydrants, banded walks (outside with a new blue band), dead bug, prone knee lfits

Yoga: the old Warrior 2, triangle, pyramid, revolved triangle, reverse warrior, twice on each side.

Then tree: still a struggle on the left, but not as bad as it once was.

Those knees!

Doing ok; maybe time to add just a little?

Note: the best back stretches for me:

McKenzie, Open Book, and the hang from the pull-up bar.
