It's been a while since I last updated my blog. Not for the lack of effort but my internet connection's screwed. Something wrong with the modem. Need to check it. Sigh. I'm your typical Malaysian. I hate doing maintenance work. Pbthhh...
Anyway, my back's getting better. But the tightness is still there. Still laying off the weights for now. Just bodyweight stuff. And I must say I'm enjoying doing something different after about half a year of strictly weight training.
I believe having injury is no excuse for you not to exercise. So your back hurts. You can do other stuff. I don't think doing pushups would aggravate a back injury. And in my case, it appears that doing pushups, planks, chinups, bodyweight rows and even bodyweight squats (squats with PROPER FORM: hips pushed back) have made my back feel much better.
On another note, I'm thinking of trying out sled dragging. Don't have a prowler. But I read somewhere where the guy said that you can use a tyre as a substitute. I can find a tyre. I can look for a rope.
But... kind of segan to drag a tyre at the neighbourhood park all alone. Anyone care to try it out with me. What say you, Adeline and Ash?
