Over the few years I’ve been weight training, I’ve done nearly everything wrong and I’m currently fucked up. After a nearly 6 weak layoff, I’m left with a herniated disc, torn kneecaps, fucked up wrists and achilles tendonitis. Not a single light day/layoff for 2 straight years with horrible form caused me this. Back in the day I used heavy weight with little regards to MMC or quality reps almost always to failure and this is what I’m left with.
This has to end.
I’m currently at a state of loss. I’ve read everything new from scratch from the beginners section to the bodybuilding bible to anything in between. I no longer care about being strong. All I want is to look good naked while feeling fucking HEALTHY. I can’t train my lower body with almost any weight at all. I can’t go heavy on anything really.
I’m ready to embrace a new style of training. I’m thinking of creating a split of mine using the Bodybuilding Bible here. What are some advice you can give? Straight sets or supersets, ramp up or not, when to go to failure? And perhaps most important HOW TO PROGRESS? I literally can’t think of any progress other than adding weight to the bar. How can I remove the urge to become a weight-whore? My greatest challenge is this probably. Any ideas?
