So the good news is we qualified for Henley again, first time in 3 years. Bad news is we came up against a seeded crew. We have it our best shot even initially taking a small lead, of it their power and experience was too much and we lost by 3 lengths.
Training has been s weird structure with a lot of outings on the water to make up for lost time in lockdown, but with season done I can return to a more normal programme.
This has been longest I havent done weights since I was 15. I started very very light to build up each session over the next 4 weeks and also fron experience I know how bad soreness can be after a long time out.
Bench Press: 60/3, 70/3, 70/3, 70/3, 80/3, 80/3, 80/3, 60/3
Squats: 40/30, 40/30, 70/5, 100/5, 100/5, 100/5
Lying Leg Curl: 22/15, 32/10
Low volume compared to where I want to go, but got some work done. Squats had a lot more in tank to lift heavier, but the old high rep squats leave some horrible soreness, so one step at a time.
