I’ve recently found myself stuck on where to go with my programming, and I thought I’d swallow my pride and come ask for some help.
For several years I battled a chronic infection that lead to chronic issues with pain and stiffness through my back, abdomen, and pelvis. It was a very slow process back into lifting and I never thought I’d reach the point I’m at today being able to perform all the big compound movements again pain free. Most of this year my focus has been on cutting fat, then once I hit my target weight maintaining and just improving overall work capacity through high density workouts. Push/pull/legs 6x/week turned out to be my bread and butter. To that end, I’ve been very happy with my results, but recently I’ve found myself sort of at a loss where to go from here, just going through the motions.
I just never actually believed I’d get to this point, so now that I’m here I’m having a tough time figuring out exactly what my next goal is. FWIW I’m a 2a, so I respond well to switching things up regularly. I’m just generally happy with my level of leanness and musculature at 33, and could maybe use a little help deciding what I want to focus on next.
