I’m (Upper) Back!

Today I conducted a simple, but exhausting routine to strengthen my back.

Bent barbell rows at 60kg
Chin-ups
T-bar rows at 65kg (+10kg bar)
Shrugs at 60, 100 and 120kg (at this point my grip gave up)
High-rep kroc rows at 20kg
An elongated period of back stretches.

Admittedly, it wasn’t aimed at my lower back, which is the problem area. However, I’m trying to save my legs and lower back, so I can go for a run with my dad this weekend… Here comes the pain!
