Take Two? Three?
Been away for a year and a half (There are a few logs sitting in the nether regions of this category and they can stay there). I think I took another attempt in that time and hurt my lower back (once again) doing Stronglifts 5x5. Obviously my approach has been wrong all this time. Time to build the base the rest of my life will be based on.
Iron is in the blood and no matter what state I get in, I’m always thinking of and longing for getting under the bar. The plan this time around is to pay closer attention to how I feel and be proactive about not getting hurt. Also to just do more work and stop focusing on maxing out all the time, which is what Stronglifts and 5/3/1 do to my pudgy arse. I’m on the fence about getting a trainer but I imagine it’s an eventual given. For the time being it will be about getting a feel for where I’m at and increment the weight slowly.
A bit of rollin’ the foam
Mobility/stretching for the mob
Squats Barx10x2, 95x10x1, Barx10x3
RIght now I’ll start with an A/B split of Squat/OHP and Deads/Bench with no emphasis on sets or reps. Just going to have a bit of fun. Eventual goal is competing in powerlifting and one day strongman. Stats right now are sad, sad, sad. Got to 326lbs @ 6’3, 39 y.o going on what feels like 68 right now. Body fat must be at least 35%.
Until then - have a great one.
