'll keep the background short and sweet. I started lifting a few years back because I broke the cartilage in my chest in a bodyboarding accident and had scoliosis. Fixed them both and haven’t looked back, from 140lbs to 165 now at 6’2".
I’m in a bit of a transition now, just graduated college, lived in Daytona Beach two months, been living in Peru near the coast for the past six months, and I’m heading home saturday to the great state of Georgia.
I keep my lifting very simple, upper and lower days, everything has a purpose, and I do not keep a log. Here I will just add insights and workout highlights. Any questions,tips, or what not, ask away.
I’ve been decently consistent here, though hindered a good bit by some bouts with the flu and food poisoning. Not gonna stop me though from another workout before the flight home though. Looking forward to going back to pounds.
Deadlifts-> worked up to a single of 45 kilos/side on the bar. Then lowered the weight a bit and did around 10-12 speed sets of 3 reps. Felt pretty good, but hamstring felt a bit tweaked after.
supersetted each set with bodyweight calf work (been having problems with my achilles, so doing weight aggravates it)
