    Yesterday -

    warm up

    back squat -
    1x10 45, 115, 155, 195, 225 (no nerve sensation/pain on any reps. first time this has happened since squatting again post-injury)

    deadlift -
    1x5 45, 115, 155, 195, 225, 245 (no nerve sensation/pain on any reps)

    plank -
    5x20 seconds (2/10 nerve pain starting 2nd set. I started from a flexed lumbar position and lowered myself into the plank, this is what triggered the pain. So all following sets I started from an extended lumbar position (belly on floor) and rose up into neutral plank position, no pain at all)

    side plank -
    5x20 seconds each side (no nerve pain on any sets)

    standing sciatic nerve flossing - 5x10 reps on right side (slight localized pinching sensation around SI joint on about 1/4 of all reps. doesn't feel like nerve pain)

    hip mobility
    shoulder mobility
    t-spine mobility

    Best session back squatting and deadlifting since injury, and heaviest session, too. Felt some lateral lower leg heaviness that ranged between 1-4/10, but only sometimes between sets. No numbness or tingling in any part of lower extremity duration of workout.

    Definitely making progress. Nerve pain tends to be worst when getting out of bed, and first 5 minutes or so moving around. I do my rehab stretches daily, take multiple short walks daily, and avoid lumbar flexion pain triggers. I also stand for about 3 hours of each work day. Also use lumbar support pillow when sitting. All this adds up to make a difference.

    Yesterday -

    bench press -
    5x6 w/ 225 lb progress by 10 (1-2/10 momentary nerve pain when getting up from only 2 sets of benching. no pain at all during 1st couple reps, which I had the last time).

    close grip bench press -
    3x12 w/ 175 lb progress by 10 (no nerve pain)

    incline spider row -
    5x8 w/ 175 lb progress by 10 (some 2-3/10 lower lateral leg heaviness sensation when getting up on a few of these sets)

    BOHEE -
    3x17 each side (no nerve pain any sets)

    hip mobility
    t-spine mobility
    shoulder mobility

    Good stuff. on and off 2/10 nerve sensation of heaviness in lateral lower right leg between maybe 1/4 of all sets.

    4/24/2021

    back squat - (no belt, and haven't used belt since injury)
    1x10 45, 125, 165, 205, 235

    deadlift - (no belt, and haven't used belt since injury)
    1x5 45, 135, 175, 205, 235, 255

    bird dogs -
    3x7 each side (2 second hold) (definitely developing strength, endurance, and better technique with these)

    hip mobility
    shoulder mobility
    t-spine mobility

    Most confident I've felt with squats and deadlifts since returning. No nerve pain/sensation on any rep of any exercise.

    2/10 heaviness sensation in right lateral lower leg between sets, but just a handful of short-lived moments.

    1-2/10 highly localized nerve "pain" on top of right big toe, again, just a few moments of short-lived moments. This is the kind of thing I wouldn't even think twice about or notice if I wasn't dealing with the injury recovery.

    No localized right SI pinching when doing 5x10 rep sets of nerve flossing, that's new for me.

    Good stuff. Only nerve pain was 2/10 top of right foot for a short moment after general warm up. Felt no nerve sensation for 1st half of workout, and then felt some 3/10 heaviness sensation in lateral right lower leg on and off through 2nd half.

    Felt great today. No nerve pain at all, but did have nerve sensation of heaviness in right lateral lower leg on and off between some sets. During nerve flossing, only had that localized SI pinching sensation on a few reps.

    Today -

    warm up

    back squat -
    1x10 45, 115, 155, 185, 225, 255 lb (felt solid, no nerve pain in any set)

    deadlift -
    1x5 45, 155, 205, 235, 255, 275 lb (felt solid, no nerve pain in any set)

    bird dog -
    3x8 each side w/ 2 second hold each rep (momentary 1/10 nerve sensation in right hip and lateral leg right after sets).

    I'm definitely building up confidence. Mentally I'm feeling hesitant. I continue to strive for tight core and using my quads (forward knees) on the squats, and tight core, bar close to body, and a more quad-focused deadlift.

    Good stuff. No nerve pain during any set. Only had that localized SI pinch feeling during 1-2 reps out of ~50 nerve flossing reps. Felt 1-2/10 heaviness sensation in right lower right between some sets, but momentarily. Had moment of 1/10 nerve pain on top of right foot for only a couple seconds, then literally no other nerve pain.

    BW = 201.2 lb

    The back injury/nerve issue is definitely continuing to improve. Outside of the gym is where I feel it the most, but it's reducing in that regard too. I feel it the most getting out of bed, but it only lasts a short while. Today, I had no right lower right heaviness getting out of bed, and the pain was low, and went away in about 15 seconds. I don't get tingling/numbness in right lower leg or top of foot from sitting hardly ever in the past week.
