Building a better back

Today was back and triceps day.  I always love training back, it is one of my better body parts.  I was able to hit it pretty hard without any issues of pain in my lower back.  Did two sessions of stretching to make sure I would be able to go at it.  Thirty minutes of cardio done.  If I manage to keep 4.0 mph I can burn ~350 cals per training session on the treadmill, leaving me with less than 1500 cals to cut out of my diet for the week.  Sweet.  And even at 4.0 mph, I don't feel like I even broke a sweet.  Treading lightly with the recovery process as I do not want to be sidelined again for 5 weeks.
