Sorry, I haven't been active here for the last couple weeks. After my first workout, I had a major depressive breakdown that lasted a week. It was one of the most serious ones I've had in a long time. I didn't train at all during last week and went for a few days barely eating. This week I started fresh and have trained 3 out of 3 times. I've had a very busy week though and I've been splitting up my workout into pieces and fitting them in when I can, but making sure I get everything done. This week, I will try to fit them in specific times during my week. I also really don't think I ate enough this week but my weight gainer came in the mail a couple days ago and I'm buying a blender today, so I'll be drinking more protein shakes.
Week 1, Day 1
95 lbs. - 5/5/5
Easier than the first time I did it. My form was better than last time too I think.
55 lbs. - 5/5/5
This was really easy too, not much to say.
+0 lbs. - 5/5/5
I trained in the morning and the gym was getting too crowded for my comfort level, and I was feeling very self-conscious. I did my chinups later in the same day. They were easier than last time too.
Week 1, Day 2
105 lbs. 5/5/5
I had a ton of homework to do so I decided to just do this one exercise and save the next two for later. I rushed through and cranked everything out in about 15 minutes.
85 lbs. 5/5/5
I really can't remember the last time I benched. I have high hopes for this lift though because at the peak of my strength so far, I was benching just over my bodyweight at 160 lbs. This was my strongest lift, but when I lost weight, this lift fell the farthest and became my weakest.
Regardless of that, 85 lbs. was really easy.
135 lbs. 5
Not heavy, but shitty form. I have kyphosis and so I'm not really built for deadlifts. I've had a lot of trouble keeping my upper (not lower) back from rounding at any weight. I bought a posture brace off Amazon that solves the issue but I didn't bring it along for this workout.
Week 1, Day 3
115 lbs. 5/5/5
I finally did a workout all in one shift. Squats aren't getting any harder yet and my form is improving as well, although that means nothing at low weight. I'm getting better at taking advantage of the stretch reflex.
65 lbs. 5/5/5
These are still easy as well. More consistent form than last time. I'll add 10 lbs. one more time then go by 5 lb. jumps until I can't.
+5 lbs. 5/5/5
Added weight to the belt. It actually felt easier than last week. The very last rep was slower than all the others though.
