I spent the weekend feeling very old. Why you ask? Well, I guess you could say that I "threw my back out". Yep, like an old person. I have never experienced anything as defeating as back pain. It all started Friday morning at BifG. We did a routine where we did 21 dead lifts, 21 burpees. Repeat with 15 reps, then repeat with 9 reps. As my trainer explained the routine, I didn't see any reason for concern.
We loaded up the bar with our normal amount of weight. For me that was 100lbs. While some people struggle with deadlifts, I have never really found them that hard....well everything at BifG is hard, so relatively speaking not that hard. My trainer even calls deadlifts "my move". Friday was no exception. I knocked them out like I always do.
