A DOCTOR WHO type rest day

Today was rest day, shoulder girdle and chest is super tight so I did quite a bit of mobility and trigger point work.  I will be doing a lot of stretching and foam rolling tonight while watching Doctor Who.  Have you seen that show?  It is addictive, I even got Keri to watch a few episodes with me!

Getting adjusted and having ART done tomorrow, this is a perk for working with another ART doc.


45 min walk, 3.5mph at 5º – semi fasted, have small black coffee(after downing large water) at home while waking up, then sipping protein shake as I walk

RDL 12/10/8/6 -I have tweaked the low back last few DL sessions so sticking with the RDL

Leg Press 20/18/16/14 – came across a tip that if you choke up a bit (butt 4-6″off mat) you can complete FULL ROM without the low going into flexion, will try that out tomorrow
