dude, you think your back would be ok with different kind of jumping?

vertical jumps, kneeling jumps, etc etc?

Yeah I was doing jumps a few weeks ago, mainly vertical 1-leg. Back has been a bit tender in the last few weeks so I've given them a miss but I'll try some tomorrow depending on how I feel.

watch out with jumping though. once you get tired you'll probably start rounding your back just a bit with each jump and accompanied by smashing your spine just a bit with each landing this can be devastating if you do several hundred at a time...
Next time, I'll spend the money on drugs instead.

No gym on Friday 3rd - just wasn't feeling it & very busy at work.

No gym last week as on my hols, but did do hill sprints on 3 evenings i.e. 20 sprints up a steep grassy hill. Really enjoyed these; hard work & serious burn in the legs & backside afterwards, though seemed to tweak my achilles slightly on the last day.

Went for a high tempo bike ride Sunday evening.

Back to gym today; feeling a bit weak, not surprising after 2 weeks off though I guess:

5 mins HIIT

Weighted Dips:
(Warm-ups)
2x4x40
2x4x30

Planks:
2x60 secs +20kg

Decline KB Push-Ups:
2x8

BW Dips:
2x8

Planks:
2x60 secs +10kg
then each side for 30 secs +10kg

Flat KB Push-Ups:
2x8

5 mins HIIT

Stretch
