    Forgot to post the last session before going into self-quarantine (Fortunately I'm asymptomatic and live in (so far) low risk area, but I do have an heart diseases, so gonna be more cautios). But I really do miss the bar.

    16/03:
    Squat:
    68kg x4 @6
    70kg x4 @7
    76kg x4 @8
    76kg x4 @8

    Bench Press:
    24kg x10 @6
    26kg x10 @7
    28kg x10 @8
    28kg x10 @8

    Deadlift:
    58kg x8 @6
    60kg x8 @7
    64kg x8 @8
    65kg x8 @8

    Weight: 106,8
    Waist: 107cm

    Anyway, did not exercise at all since then. Will start doing some exercise and I have some heavy rocks on my backyard and who knows, maybe by the end of this I will qualify for the Strongman Amateur on the Arnold Sports Festival South America by the end of this.

      Long time no see, and well a whole lot happened and somehow I am still alive.
      Did very, very, very limited attempts at training the in meantime but couldn't make it stick, so I finally bite the bullet and signed up to a new gym.
      Bodyweight wise I hit the lows 76kg, but now hanging around the highs 86kg, both times doing stupid stuff.
      No idea on the waist and kind of afraid of figuring it out.
      Anyway, I will take more control of my nutrition by hitting 155g of protein (using lean sources) and keeping my base of tons of fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains.
      So basically I will go for a 'body recomp' while in the first phase of the beginners template.
      I have two goals: See abs by the end of the year and be a bit more athletic (which is way to vague to be meaningful, so I will try to narrowed it down later).
      I will hit the gym tomorrow for the first time in a long time so my only plan is to do some fun stuff and keep it under RPE8.
      Will restart the beginner on monday.
      See ya!

        Really quick session today, but the felling of 'I get to do this' put a smile on my face during the session.

          Yesterday's training:
          Squat:
          42kg x4 @6
          46kg x4 @7
          52kg x4 @Ugly 9

          Bench:
          20kg x10 @6
          22kg x10 Turned in a @10 ops.

          Deadlift, probably messed up on my plates math. Also, by this point lost focus.
          32kg x8 @6
          34kg x8 @7
          40kg x8 @8

          I really missed the gym, even the mediocre music. Can you believe I get to train?
          I am so excited about training that I get excited about other aspect of my life, it's weird.
          My cardiovascular capacity seems to be better than last year. I didn't feel like it was my limiting factor. Nice.
          Felt kinda cool training in a hoodie and strange to now sweat while training (it's freaking cold in my part of the world).

            22kg x4 @6
            24kg x4 @7
            26kg x4 @10

            Squat:
            42kg x7 @6
            44 x 5 @10

            Row
            18kg x10 @6
            20kg x10 @7
            22kg x10 @8

            Thursday: 25 minute cardio session.

            Friday:
            Deadlift:
            54kg x4 @6
            60kg x4 @7
            66kg x4 @8
            For the first time deadlifts felt like fun, whee.

            Bench Press:
            20kg x8 @6
            22kg x8 @7
            24kg x8 @8

            Squat:
            22kg x10 @6
            26kg x10 @7
            Lost my equilibrium and fell while squatting with a empty barbell, had a good laugh about it with others gym members.
            Felt pain in my right groin area, found a stance that didn't result in pain, because what are you gonna do? Not Train?
            Felt some weird oreness/pain in my quads and didn't felt confident executing my last set.

            Anyways, I'm actually quite enjoying the new gym atmosphere.

              A bit more stress this week outside the gym, but proud of the fact of not missing any sessions. \m/
              Having a really good time at the gym, I am really, really, really glad I came back to training.

              Anyway, seeing abs by the end of the year is a bit unrealistic right now, so I will change my goal to reducing and keeping my waist to under 90cm.

                Still training, will post the logs later.
                Just checking in to say that I am really enjoying my squat sessions. Even 7s are getting fun, may 10s will one day.
                Also started doing some version of the couch to 5k as my gpp.

                  Apparently not dead yet, after some ups and down life, a bunch of missed sessions. I'm back. Restarted the beginner's template and found a new gym. It is a CrossFit one, but they are a bunch of nice people and they gave me a corner, rack, barbells and weights. So I am a happy camper. Anyway, brb gotta get back to benching.
