Yeah... funny enough, even though I would kill a man to see my abs for the first time ever, I actually got it to help out my lower back.

I've always had tight hips, and really crappy "core" strength (I think I just vomitted in my mouth a little by saying "core")... and also had a little lower back tightness when I slept. Found out that this combo is particularly bad for your back (Anterior Pelvic Tilt), and lo and behold, strengthening my abs has helped a ton in just a few weeks.

I get borderline rhabdo when I use the ab wheel, but it's all good.

Re: Lifting Heavy, Running Fast, Eating Well

All mobility work today.

Did a few hip mobility drills, then moved onto a solid 45 minutes of thoracic mobility stuff. Even this morning, my spine feels like jello. Good times.

I'm making it a goal of mine to do some intense T-spine stuff every.single.day. Mostly because I never seem to stick to it. We'll see how it goes.

Tonight I have to come up with some sort of conditioning work out. I'm thinking something with kettlebells.

I have the dual ab wheels. I decided to start incorporating them into my routine because GHD situps are stupid.

Welcome back to the land of the functioning Bo.
