Well its been ~9 months since I've been to a gym. Very long, dramatic (to me at least) story short, life happens and today, I got back into the gym. It has been way too long. Too many excuses to not get in for far too long. From memory, these were my last working numbers (5 reps) from early September 2013: BW: 183 Squat: 283.25 Bench: 180.4 Deadlift: 393.25 Row: 165 OHP: 115.5 (converted, for future convenience, from Kg and used micro plates so they are not even) Previously, I made the switch from Stronglifts to Madcow and was ~6-8 weeks into Madcow and was making steady progress. I plan on going back to Stronglifts scheme for now and see what happens. I noticed I lost most of my weight within the first 2 months or so of not going to the gym, most noticeably from my lower body. May 30, 2014: First day back, I just wanted to get under the weight and get a feel for it again. Lots of warmup sets with lots of increments to where it felt like a good place to start. I didnt do any DLs because I know my legs will be shot these next few days anyhow. BW: 167 Squat: 135 Bench: 95 OHP: 65 I'll pick up with these numbers from here. The plan is to go 3 days a week as work allows. I will be travelling a bit and will squeeze it in best I can. Posting a log has really helped me keep on track and in a way held me accountable.
