    My cardio routine has been shit for like, 8 weeks. Got back out for a sort of quick jog interval thing this morning. Say maybe 18 minutes worth of 8-10MPH in segments over 4.6 miles or so. Legs are trashed, my popeye-ish calves are ground beef and doing weird alien things. Feet are aching. All part of the rebuild.

    Stuck at home option. Three different sizes iirc. I have the middle one on a 10 ft ceiling. Hang some rings and find out who has never been inside a gym with their reaction...

    I finally got off my butt this week for the first time in months and did 2 workouts so far. It's just pushups/squats/lunges/sit ups... no weights. I miss being able to lift properly.

    I'm thinking about getting a half rack or a full sized power rack for my apartment, but lots of places are sold out of plates and other things lol

    I'm a competitve powerlifter (181, just so you don't think I am a huge beast) so my training revolves around splitting a day for squatting, one for benching, one for deadlifts and one for benching or squatting again. Compound moves are the shit, I can't live without: Pullups, kroc rows(high rep, heavy dumbell rows), lunges, and JM presses or close grip bench presses.

    If you guys get a pair of bands and do high rep band pushdowns your elbows will thank you forever.

    Some people mentioned 5/3/1, I ran it for a few years and can recommend it for pretty much every need. The Forever book is awesome, and Wendler is a really cool guy, spent a lot that time on his forum.

    How do you like those? Do the support bars on the side get in the way on some movements?

    Squats w/average bands (160)
    165 + 160 x 5
    231 + 160 x 4
    297 + 160 x 2 x 3
    357 + 160 x 5 x 2

    SSB GM
    249 x 3 x 5

    Leg Press
    GHR
    Abs

    This is from Monday. I base my training off of the Conjugate method..
    Heavy lower
    Heavy upper
    Dynamic lower
    Dynamic upper

    Main lifts rotate different variations every so often. Dynamic days rotate bars, %'s, other variables.

    Question on reps, do you find or know 8-10 reps less useful than heavier 4-5 reps? Goal would be wasting less time for more benefit (gains, etc).

    I use both, and they both have their purpose.

    I follow conjugate methods, and train within 90% year round.

    Opposed to linear periodization where they go by blocks per month pending on where you are in meet prep etc.

    I usually have backdowns in place for additional volume after main work when I work up to my 1RM.

    Here's an example from January
    January 25, 2021
    SSB Front Squat
    183
    249
    293
    359
    403
    469
    513
    557

    Backdown
    359 x 10
    403 x 10

    So, I worked up to 557 for a single. Then, did sets of 10 for backdowns. They both have their place, and are both very beneficial. It's just all in how they're programmed.

    Very impressive. This is the next step after essential conditioning hits that plateau, IMO.

    FWP?
    I was doing shrugs wrong, didn't stretch or warm up and somehow pulled/tore a rib muscle right at the bottom of my left shoulder blade. King Hell that's some sharp pain. The fun now is never knowing what magic 3D angle will trigger that subsequent stab of agony. Outside of a deep breath or sneeze of course.

    Rib muscles are dumb but I am giving more attention to posture now.

    Intercostal muscle sprain? I've gone through my fair share and they are horrible.

    I'm very inconsistent with my work outside. But at the moment. I'm doing bent over rows, some ab work out, wrist curls and neutral grip pull ups then a half mile jog. I've gotten out of flow of regularly lifting so I'm hitting my weak points for a couple weeks then hopefully getting back on the saddle.

    okay, i've had enough of no gyms, and working out with bands sucks (in my opinion). Going to splurg on weights with my tax return. Dont really have the space, but whatever, i rather inconvenience my space than my health.

    I cant buy the super heavy weights i need for lower body (250-375lbs, depending on exercise).
    so just picking up dumbbells. Already have 5 and 10lbs, so will be buying 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, and maybe 45? Should be sufficient for next little while, as i haven't worked out since summer of 2019. Back then, i was pushing 55s on bench press, and i know i'm much weaker now. So will slowly work my way back up.

    could use them for lower body, but will have to increase the reps to accommodate them.

    sure will be out of a lot of money as people have price gouged for weights during pandemic

    Just replace walking with lunging. It's a shaming ritual in some cultures so be aware.

    I bought a weighted dip belt and looped weights on it to do weighted squats. No way am I getting fat just because I broke my arm. These Oreos aren’t going to burn themselves off.

    small excitements on my end.
    have received the following weights in dumbbells:
    5s, 8s, 10s, 15s (coming today), 20s, 25s, 30s (coming wednesday) and 35s (coming soon...?)
    also bought a weight lifting bench coming tomorrow.

    will buy another 110lbs set of plates and barbell over the coming weekend. that should keep me going. granted, my squats and deadlifts would have to be limited to 110, comparing to what i was doing prior to lockdown at about 300 lbs, but at least this way, i can just focus on slowing down, and hold the weights for a certain time. maybe work on my smaller weaker muscles and ensure that i avoid injuries
