I thought I would post my training work outs to allow me to keep an online record of my training.
As you may or may not have guessed from the title I'm not the youngest of lifters and prefer abbreviated training these days and tend to be influenced by Brook Kubik so most but not all of my training tends to focus on the big 3 ie Squat, Bench & Deadlift.
I have had severe tennis elbow and as such I've had about 7 months off training followed by a few light sessions to test the water so to speak over the 6 weeks or so.
At this present time I'm roughly 2 weeks away from my 49th birthday and weighed in this morning at 62.4 kgs/137lbs at a height of 5ft 3.
My previous best lifts last year before my tennis elbow kicked in were as follows
Squat 130kgs/286lbs x 1
Bench 80kgs/176lbs x 1
Deadlift 160kgs/352 x 1
at a body weight of 65kgs/143lbs
On to my actual program, I will be using a Brooks Kubik style abbreviated 5x5 program starting light to ease back in to training, which basically consists of 2 warm up sets followed by 3 work sets although I do tend to throw in an extra warm up set here and there.
Monday is Weighted chins, Bench & Squats
Thursday is Press & Barbell curls
Saturday is Close grip bench & Deadlifts
Well on with yesterdays session
27/6/15 ( weight 62.4kgs )
Work sets only ( all weights in Kilos )
CGBP 44kgs 3x5 ( all reps paused )
Deadlifts 100kgs 3x5
Overall a nice easy session
