Hi guys, back to logging here! Can't provide much of lifting update right now since I'm having a deload week because I'm having my wisdom tooth pulled out later this, I'm moving my stuff in to a new apartment and I'm going on a family trip all of which makes my lifting time limited so it's a nice change to have a deload. But I can give a life update for sure! I think I started logging here less towards the end of last year and to be honest my training wasn't going that well. I was under a lot of stress all the time, my relationship was limiting me to have (peace of mind and) the time for training that I should have needed and during the spring there were weeks I lifting under 3 times a week and feeling miserable. Going to the gym I had thoughts like "what's the point? It's not like I'm going the get to train consistently anyway." And the reason just happened to be my relationship at the time which was not good for either of us. Don't get me wrong, she is a great girl and I'm a great guy it's just that "we" weren't not that great together. We fought a lot and we just couldn't imagine a future together. We broke up just as the summer began, I moved back to my parents and she moved back to Germany for her summer job but we're cool with this so it's all good. While there was not that much lifting last spring there were other cool things I got to experience! I visited Stockholm for the first time ever and my oh my was I positively surprised. It's just so cool of a city and the level of English is excellent. I loved the old town and there happened to be a specific book shop I'm looking forward to return to one day. I also learned how to downhill ski! Even though I'm from a country that has slopes and snow during winter I have never done downhill skiing before but now that I tried it it was amazing and I'm looking forward to doing it again. We had a course in school were we spent a week on the sloped for free so that was epic. Then lastly I did my practical training or internship at a gym back in the city of my study and that was an amazing experience. I learned a ton pretty much just sitting on the sofa and listening, I met awesome people and I actually got to do some actual PT work. After the internship the owner gave me 2 months for free for this upcoming autumn to train there and it's a really cool gym. They have tons of different equipment and specialty bars. I'm looking forward to getting to know the Safety Squat Bar. I did start lifting more consistently during the summer. I started up with 5 days a week, realized that I could do more so went 6 days a week for a month, realized I had too many weekend events and dropped it back to 5. Instead of the usual 5 day full body powerlifting style training I've been doing upper lower split still focusing on the bigger basic lifts though and getting some additional "bodybuilding" work done also. I'm looking to continue training 5 days a week as school begins in about 2 weeks or so but with a different kind of plan. I'm going to do like this; Day 1 - Full body Day 2 - Upper body Day 3 - Lower body Day 4 - Upper body Day 5 - Lower Body This kind of split will enable me to press 3x week, squat 3x week, deadlift at least 2x week and it helps me so that I don't have to do heavy deadlift and front squat on the same day. This split and training style will begin on next weeks Monday after I'm back from the family trip. And I will start my actual training also then. Excited to be back here, and share my training with you guys again! Cheers.
