Active recovery day

My lower back still isn't 100% right for taking on some load so I changed things up today and trained mostly muscles not movements.  I'm still planning on squatting on Tuesday so I wanted to keep the blood flowing today and also start doing those split squats I keep telling myself to do.

With the exception of pull-ups, every other movement I did today was either a single joint movement or a compound joint movement in a different angle.  I'm thinking I probably need to integrate more balance into my sessions between movement specific training and muscle specific training because today's session was far harder than I remember from previous 'bodybuilding' style workouts from years ago.

Leg Extensions:  110x10x3 sets
Seated Leg Curls:  95x10x3 sets

Back Extensions, 15, 10, 10

Incline DB press:  60x15, 75x15, 90x10, 100x12, 100x8

Pull-ups:  5, 5, 5

DB bulgarian split squat: 25x8, 25x8    These were expectedly horrible, rectus femoris and psoas are so tight.  Definitely need to do these more often to start getting some mobility back.  Should take stress off the lower back too.

EZ bar curls:  75x10, 95x8, 3, 3, 3  second set done myo-reps style.  Starting to feel like I can push the elbow flexors a little harder but still hints of bicep tendon irritation in the shoulders.
