Struggles With Consistency v2.0
« on: November 20, 2015, 08:12:08 AM »
Ok, not even gonna link the last online journal but here's the cliffs:
-Bro split with no reward
-Full body workout with some reward
-Stronglifts 5x5 worked really well but burned out
-Hybrid'ed 5x5 into a DUP-style that had a good run, got inconsistent
-Restarted the H5x5 again for a few weeks and got inconsistent again
-Started a new job that threw a monkey wrench into everything, been very inconsistent since, usually hitting the weights for a few days and regretting it for the next few days.

So.... Back to the pink dumbbells!

Squats:
Warmup 2x10@BW
2x8@BAR
2x8@95#

Deadlift:
1x8@BAR
3x8@135#

Incline DB BP:
1x8@25#
1x8@35#

DB Rows:
1x8@40#
1x8@50#

...And that'll be it for today.

What's the plan?
-Gonna re-establish consistency by going back to Full Body Workouts for a few weeks (3 or 4) without too much focus other than getting in there and punching the clock, wake up a few things, remember what the hell I forgot.
-Probably at that point jump back on the SL's train and ramp back up where I'll transition into something else, most likely a FBW variation.

Cheers.

Welcome back Tim!

Good move easing back into.  A full body routine done 3 times a week should yield you good results for a while.

Thank you gentlemen.  Had a few jump back into its, so this time around I'm going to establish is routine.  Even with as low as my numbers were yesterday, woke up this morning with a little stiffness/soreness. 

This morning's quickie:

Front Squats
5x5@45#

Deads
5x5@135#

Triset:
BB OHP 3x8@65#
EZ Curls 3x8@55#
Cable Tri PD's 3x8@45#

And that's all folks. 

Will add in a touch of cardio after I get this rolling first.

Every time I intend to.  Life just tends to muscle in.  Going into the "slow (er)" season,  so I should have 3 months to get going before other things intrude.


Oh, doms suck. Enough argument to never stop when starting hurts so wonderfully.

Weights are good for that. I like to lay in bed and count my reps and sets like other people count sheep.

That's far more conducive to drifting off to sleep with a nice high volume program,  I'm barely scratching triple digits.

Thanks.  Hopefully will get caught up on everyone's journals soon.  Good to be back in the swing of things. Pushed it a little harder today.

Consistency is almost as hard as nutrition! Do what you can, check the boxes as I like to say! You have a good plan, good luck.
