    The Road Back - reps/sets

    Week Two

    Squat - 75kg 8*3
    Tempo Squats to Lo Box Paused 55kg 8*3
    Banded Squats - Orange Band 20*3
    Glute Ham Roller - 20*3
    Wide Grip Pulldowns - 70lbs 10*3
    Hammer Curls - 50lbs 8*3

    A better session today. I felt like I was capable of the work required. Threw in the Lo Box to make sure I was hitting depth. I like that I was able to control my position and pause so well. We'll make these light weights pay off.

    An added bonus to today was the fact that my barbershop re-opened. 6 months is too long for me to go without a haircut.

    Nah, you'd be doing more than bingeing Netflix...
    True. I'd mix it up with some amazon prime videos.

    Easy day, body is feeling a bit better. Still getting winded easily, but I feel "better".

    I'm being reminded by those in "the know" that I'm not gonna be at optimal fitness for at least a year #planfortheoworsthopeforthebest

    My parents sometimes complain that they probably can't get much stronger because of their age. I've started responding by just quoting your log, I know it's not very logical because you are an outlier who's way stronger and better trained than most people, but it seems to work. Carry on

    The Road Back - reps/sets

    Deads - 115kg 8*2
    Block Pulls - 130kg 7*2
    1 Arm Cable Mid Rows - #8 10*3
    Back Exten - 16kg 10*3
    Planks - 60 seconds *3

    And my hands are raw meat...

    I knew this would happen. Way back in Late March, I knew my hands were getting soft. Thankfully this cycles programming isn't as "robust" as normal (due to time constrained training in the gym). So my hands should round into shape...eventually.

    Very humbling day though, I.Am.Weak.

    The Road Back - reps/sets

    Bench - 60kg 8*3
    Wide Grip Spoto - 50kg 7*3
    Close Grip - 45kg 7*3
    Dumbbell Bench - 40lbs 12*3
    Dumbbell Press - 30lbs 10*3

    3-4 minute rest periods

    Just damn, everything hurts. DOMS in the legs is to be expected from Monday, but my shoulders are cranky (low bar blues) and my wrists are wonky.

    The weight on the bar is embarrassing, but it is what it is...

    Yeah, I may bitch and moan for the next few weeks, but I'm really happy to be back in the gym!

    That is good news. I guess your body took quite a hit during those weeks of therapy. It's impressive that you've managed to keep up your training nonetheless.
    The lag in the fatigue showing up was unexpected. But now that we know where we are, we can plan accordingly.
