Hey guys been lurking the site for several years now but I haven't posted in a long time. Former athlete, husband, and Father of two who's been in and out of the iron game for many years. I've gone years without hardly touching a weight but about a year ago I got the bug again. I've been hitting it hard and consistently for about six months. I've been mostly doing bodybuilding type workouts and not going heavy at all. I've decided that needs to change.
I'm also coming off a pretty serious siatic nerve issue that has kept me in constant pain for several months, and has lingered for years. I've been working legs with mostly bodyweight exercises and back with exercises that didn't cause stress. Thanks to a very good muscle/nerve specialist using ART techniques and several injections it's finally came around. Anyways I'm starting really light on all exercises I've checked my ego at the door and plan on progressing for along time.
Right now I'm doing my own template and workouts and my current goal is to drop bodyfat and lose weight. I've lost 18lbs in the past several months so I'm on track. I like what I'm doing now but after the Christmas holiday I may decided to do the BBB template.
Here was today's workout:
Ramp up to 240x8
Standing Hammer Strength Flat Bench
3-45s each side=10,10
2-45s and 1-25 each side=10,10,10
Standing Hammer Strength Row
3-45s each side=5setsx10reps
St. Bar Pushdowns
That's it. I normally have been working out on Friday, Saturday, And Sundays, and then usually a Tuesday because it fits my family life better, but due to the Holiday and a touch of the flu I got a little of schedule. I plan on trying to get back to a Friday, Sunday, Tuesday, and then Wednesday or Thursday schedule depending on what's going on during the week so this week may look very odd.
