Well, it’s not quite as simple as the title suggest as my life has been unpleasantly surprising in all the bad ways and one of the few things I’ve been able to focus on is strength training, although I now believe SL is counterproductive to other stressors I currently have.
Anyway, so I began in June 2018 at Squat 50kg / 110lb, Bench 45kg / 100, Row and OHP both 30kg / 65, DL 40kg (lumbar disc issues).
By Feb 18 I had deloaded several times for form, missed reps and was now running 3x5;
Squat 135kg (298lb), Bench 87.5kg (192), Row 80kg (175), OHP 60kg (132lb) replaced DL with RDL 105kg (230), plus 2 sets of box squats and arm isolations.
Then caught the flu, big time and missed 6 weeks, came back last Saturday and ran at around 20% deload and have felt like boiled crap ever since, yet to make it back to the gym.
Also had bloods with high SHBG and raised E2, raised liver function
Where to go from here with regards getting back into a regular program that isn’t going to wreck my HPA?
