Motivation



MY motivation has been low this week as I went to the Chiropracter and found out my left Sacro Illiac Joint is bullshit tight and that all my heavy lifting may be exacerbating the problem.

So this week I have rested up and stretched heaps, been doing HSPU challenge and I am up to day 14 today without missing a day. Swam on thursday and did Fran on Saturday and Helen with 32 today - a little stupid but I am stretching it out and start vigourous 4 weeks of manual therapy on my SIJ tomorrow arvo.
Fingers crossed he can fix it up for me.

It is almost another argument for the variety main page programming encourages - maybe if I wasn't focusing on upping my deadlift I wouldn't have gotten a flare up - interesting.

Massive shout out the the Berry who absolutely smoked "Daniel" (take that out of context if you will) yesterday and then backed up with an awesome sub 9 Helen this morning.

I feel your pain mate. My shoulder has been giving me greif for awhile now. Identified the cause was tight Lats and have been using the foam roller on them. Fark me does that hurt!!. Making some really good progress with it though.

Flexibilty is just so important. Stretch what is tight, strengthen what is weak!!

cheers brett, quads are paying for it today though.

im sure you seen that presentation from dave tate on max lifts and recovery, reckons it can take up to 2 weeks to get over a 1rm DL session. How many max effort (1-3rm) lifts of various lower body movements were you getting in a given 2 week period.
Certainly something to take into account as ive been trying to up heavy lifts and slighlty reduce metcon duration
