I did an exercise last night that is part of the P90X program and really did a number on my lower back and right hamstring.... it was either caused from the "Superman" exercise where you lie on your stomach and raise your arms and legs in the air and hold for 10 seconds (repeat 5x) or the "locomotive lawnmower" - not sure of exact name. This is where you bend over one leg in front of the other in a squat stance (bent knees) and quickly raise your weighted arms like you're starting a lawnmower... one arm at a time. I am certain that I screwed that description up : ) I knew I was tired and I could feel my back shifting from side to side and actually had to adjust my legs to try and keep my back stable. Maybe it was a combination of the two?!
Today will be a write off! I try some stretching and massage. Blah!
