This marks the beginning of my second journal. I was going to dust off the old one but decided to start anew since I'm starting over. After a long layoff, becoming fat, small and weak I need to get back to lifting and be consistent.
Next week I'll be venturing into a PL routine as outlined by KevinStarke in the PL forum. I need to get back any strength I might have had in the past. This will be new to me but I'm looking forward to it.
The routine will be as follows;
Day 1 - Heavy bench day - bench, incline db, dips
Day 2 - Deadlift day - deads, speed pulls, pullups, rows, hyperextensions
Day 3 - Off
Day 4 - Speed bench day - speed bench, close grip, skulls, pressdowns
Day 5 - Assistance day - RC work, hammers, bent over laterals, OH press
Day 6 - Off
Day 7 - Off
I'm still working on leg day as to what it'll look like and where I'll fit it in. It'll likely be on day 5. Any suggestions would be great.
Currently I'm @ 165 with too much fat. I'm weak but this'll change.
Roughly my current maxes are;
I say roughly because I haven't tested my max squat but I did get 4 reps ATF with 225 last week.
I'm thinking of incorporating some box squats. I'll likely have to make one. Any ideas on how to make sure of the height I need (I'm a whopping 5'7")?
I did a search and am thinking about 10". I'll have to try and see where that puts me. Make sense?
I'll be doing some leg work today then likely nothing until next week when I start the new routine.
