Bench press - 175 lbs., then 190 lbs.

Not today, but just got back last night from a 65 mile backpack in the Jefferson wilderness in Oregon. Oh my lord what a workout.
Today is normally a 1 to 2 hr surf ski paddle, but with the back as crooked as a dogs hind leg it was all about opening the facet joints and getting fluid to the disc's so this mornings work consisted of
10 mins of Steve Cotters joint mobility drills (circle work)
10 minutes of 10 second pull ups ( one pull up every 10 seconds repeat for 10 mins, so 60 pull ups completed)
5 mins upside down on the inversion table
5 mins of Hindu pushups back to downward dog on the 10 second interval as above (30 completed)
5 mins of hanging bent leg raise's on the 10 second intervals ( 30 completed) 1/2 done by bringing knees to the sides
5 mins of inversion table
6 mins of planks alternating every min between front and sides ( sides I could hold for 45 sec so had 15 sec rest before starting fronts again)
6 mins of wall chair and squats facing the wall alternating each min between the static wall chair hold and the squats
3 mins of rows on the gym rings
5 mins of inversion table to open the disc's
*Finished with a 20 min soak in the spa digging fingers into very tight and sore trigger points around the hips and priorformas*
Back felt good after that work out, woke up pretty sore so was good to get the blood flowing, have a myafascal and maybe dry needling massage this afternoon to help with pulled calf muscle (3 weeks ago) and the sciatica.
20 minutes of jump rope intervals
5x3 front squats @77lb
8 minutes AMRAP:
12 KB deadlifts, 53lb KB
6 KB presses right arm, 20lb KB (way too light, but the 35lb was just barely too heavy for that many reps)
6 KB presses left arm, 20lb KB
I got in 5 rounds + 5 deadlifts.
200 singles warm up
Walked the dog 2 miles
Incline Bench Press 3x10
Back Squat 3x10
Lat Pull Down 3x10
