I redeemed myself from my horrible week 5.

The Challenge

Coming off of a no-workout week was a little hard. I was excited to workout, but my body needed a little more motivation to get moving. My main challenge however was pushing myself to the next level in reps and weights. I knew I needed to challenge my body, but exactly how much I push I did not know. Unfortunately I might have pushed a little too far.

By the end of the week I was immensely sore throughout my calves, upper thighs, triceps, biceps and chest. So much so, it slightly affected my performance during my Saturday night soccer game.

Lesson of the week: don’t force it!

The Reward

Halfway through the week I realized that my sacrum was not rubbing the way it has previously during certain exercises. My belief is that as my body is trimming down, and I perform Yoga X and X-Stretch, my sacrum might be repositioning itself into the correct place. Some of the stretches my physical therapist recommended to hopefully reposition my sacrum resemble stretches that are performed in Yoga X and X-Stretch. It felt really good to workout without the annoying rubbing in my lower back.
