3. Lat Pull down + Bicep Dumbbell Curls (unilateral) [weights listed for each arm]

Review: These days I really don't have any goals, just get to the gym and workout, keep it simple, ensuring I keep the muscle I have worked so hard to build. Need to start with shoulder press next time, as it can be seen, I can't do much with it as the last exercise. I'm okay with the weight but need to increase the reps.

Bad news: Looks like I have somehow managed to damage my disk during sit ups about 3 weeks ago. Sitting on a chair, if I extend my left leg I feel some discomfort on the left side of my lower back. The discomfort increases if I look down or hunch my back. To mitigate the effects, I'm immediately going to stop putting any weight on the back i.e. weighted squats are gone; dead lift is gone. Furthermore, I will focus on strengthening the core area + alter my diet to focus on fat loss to reduce my now noticeable gut.

Activities like walking and sitting do not cause any discomfort, so I think this can be reversed, just need to take it easy for a while.

I still fail to understand how can a bloody sit up cause disk damage?!!! :(
A question for you, what kind of activities are safe to do in such situations? Last thing I want to do is re-aggravate it...

Good news: Pelvis alignment is holding a lot better than before.

How you doin bro?

Thats really bad news. The other day I was doing weighted situps.. I felt a bit of tension on my lower back also. Be careful and get well soon! Take your time while you heal.
