I really didn’t want to do PT this morning. I am growing tired of it. And, well, i should lose at least 10 lb, though 20 would be better. Reason: I carry most of my excess weight in my belly and that pulls on my spine; my L5 is slipped too far forward (isthmic spondylolisthesis) leading to femoral stenosis and presenting as neurogenic claudication.
But I did my PT anyway and today looked like
- Walk 1
- PT plus pull ups and push ups
- Walk 2
- Weights downstairs
The walks: went ok; the second one I had “oh so mild” lower back tightness and no glute pain!!! It is about as pain free as it gets for me.
Pull ups: went well as well: 5 sets of 10, 2 sets of 5 mixed.
Push ups: 30 inclined, 30 decline then 4 sets of 10 including deficit, and various declines.
Downstairs: bench: 10 x 134, then 3 sets of 5 x 156
Deadlift (all low) 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 10 x 224
High incline: 5, 6, 6 of 104
curls 3 sets of 10.
