I figured I may as well have a log here. I'm currently doing Westside for Skinny *******s, slightly modified to include back rehab. I add in a bit of yoga for stretching and will hopefully find time to start cycling again in the not too distant future. Currently bulking until the middle of the month when I plan to cut a few kg to keep fat in check before beginning another round of bulking. Last weight was 66.4kg on the 23rd.

I'll start with a couple of back posts from the start of back rehab.

Back rehab, like I said at the start I've had to modify it a bit. I do what I can but not anything that risks getting in the way of getting my back into working order.

Too much weight on my back annoys it so I'm having to do leg presses instead of squats. I'm going to have to stop adding weight to lunges soon too. The deadlifts are the actual rehab work. I couldn't do one rep at 35kg a month ago without being in too much pain to get anywhere close to decent form so it's major progress

That's about the worst deadlift for me. My problem is my erector spinae muscles which sumo targets more than regular. I'll need to get back to deadlifting a reasonable weight without pain before I can no more targeted things

Did you try it though? The theory is that your back is more upright so you don't have to fight rounding as hard. - If you do it asian style, wide stance, hips fairly low ect..

Just double checked with 34kg, it pulls more on my lower back than regular. Not as much as last time I tried

I went with regular for rehabing as that's what I most want to be able to do again once it's not a problem I'll work on things that target it more though it'll likely be more strengthening than high rep

Ah fair enough. Idk much about back issues, I'm sure there are a lot of different types.

Just reminded me of a guy on youtube, who did his back in and couldn't do more than around 60-100kg conventional without pain. Then he switched to sumo and could pull heavy (like 180kg+) without issues.

Sumo is quite technical and requires a lot of hip flexiblity which normal people don't have.

Summer body fat control has began. At 2500 calories, 200g protein, with increased walking and building up cardio. Will review and reduce calories as needed. I estimate body fat at 17% just now. 2kg lose should be fine (perhaps 3kg but no more) to get to about 14%

rows didn't hurt my lower back, so long as I don't wake up sore tomorrow I think it might more or less be better
lost my grip on shrugs rather than a real fail

fat check is semi-on hold until after exams due to lack of being able to do it properly
