Get in there and knock the cobwebs off. You'll be back to your old routine before you know it.

Well.... Given certain current events, now that I'm back on my side of the state, a few priorities need to change around the house. So, spent a few minutes in the old basement home gym, just a few light sets of OHP, deads, tri-pressdowns, and air squats. 
I'll probably bounce back into a SL 5x5 again, as that's a simple progressive resistence program.

Cheers.

Thanks PD!

Finished the day with a 10 minute brisk walk on the treadmill.  This will progressively increase as well.

Been curious about 'juicing' my veggies for the day,  initially it was just the wife wanting to try this fad. Knew that my boss had unsuccessfully attempted a 'cleanse' with a breville,  I got to borrow his for her to play around with figuring the appeal would wane after a few rounds..... well, ours came in the mail today.  Still natty though, just getting my veggies in.

Glad to hear you're getting back to the iron bud.

Y'all are nuts, couldn't play the vid on my obsolete smart phone, but I can imagine Dan Ackeroyd and a fishy drink.  I'm just looking to suppliment some veggies with enough fruities so it don't taste like grass clippings.  So far it's been tolerable/borderline enjoyable.  Not tackling the nutrition side of things too much until I get setteled into a routine of lifting & cardio. 

Which brings me to today:

Another clearing the cobwebs day of bodyweight squats, slight incline benchpresses, and some BOR's. Followed it up with 15 minutes of walking (not challenging, but just getting in the groove).

Not much to report beyond that.  Will be playing with starting weights in another run of SL 5x5, as that's been good to me in the past, with alternating front squat days like before.

Life's good.

Glad you're back at it.

You should watch the vid sometime, Dan puts a whole a bass in a blender, tail and all while selling the bass-o-matic. Hands the glass of pureed raw fish to Lorraine Newman who takes a drink and exclaims "MMM That's good Bass!"

Debated making a post today. 

I did set the alarm clock to get up early,  win.

I did wake up,  win.

Then I saw the text message of a staffer calling out for her 6am shift, fail.

So no basement training today, just an unavoidable 15 hour shift.

Ditto.

Again.

Feel like a quality made pinata after all the birthday kids got a swing and dad brought out the Louisville Slugger.

Day late, but not a dollar short.

Squats 5x5 @ 45#
OHP 5x5 @ 45#
Deadlift 5x5 @135#
Dreadmill 15 minutes with a bit of jogging.

That was quicker than I thought. Light weights feel like barely warm-up poundages, so not much need for warm-ups yet. 

Life's good.

Good on you for getting in and getting it done.
I'm sure in no time the weights will be back to where they were.  :)

Been there before. Sometimes a complete reset is a good thing. Keep it up and the weight will be there soon enough.

Good to see you back in there again and hitting the iron. Keep it up and things will start to flow like they were.

Thanks gentlemen. Its just all part of my long term plan to capitalize on newbie gains over and over again.  You know,  if that was an actual thing, I'm proof it's not.  Best shape I was in was after about an 18 month stretch. 

Today's fun:
Front Squats 5x5 @ 45#
Benchpress 5x5 @ 95#
BOR 5x5 @ 65#

Skipping cardio,  plantar faciatitis is inflamed,  it sucks.
