It was my first “real” day back in the gym and I couldn’t be more excited. I did some Bench Press and Pull-ups. To be honest with you I have lost a lot of strength (i.e. my bench press dropped 100 pounds) but I am not discouraged. When you are coming back from a long layoff due to injury or sickness it takes a bit.  You have to be patient with yourself. You’ll get back to where you are in no time. Next week I bet I go up 50lbs.

On a side note so you know my plan, I started with light bodyweight type movement and now I am moving into a weighted phase. I will do some easier type weighted workouts start introducing cardio and build intensity each week until I can build to be ready to go at full intensity by March 1st. Why the slow build? Not worth getting sick again and not worth getting hurt after a huge layoff. Forward thinking.

Note about the training: Day to day entries will change. Some entires will be workouts I have done that day, some entries will be workouts that people I train did that day. Some entries will be my favorite all time workouts or something I saw on the internet that I thought would be good for you to experience. Remember that because of the changing nature of the entries these workouts are not meant to be prescriptive. For example they aren’t necessarily written down with the intention of you following them precisely. Rather, they are meant to collectively build a resource that you can learn from. Hopefully you can implement some of these ideas and workouts into your own training in order to better your fitness.

Also note that I won’t be posting at the same time every day. If I workout early then it might get posted early. If I workout late then it might get posted late. If I am in  different time zone then hell, I don’t know what time it will show up. Just a head’s up. That said, I will do my best to get them to you in a timely fashion. You have my word on that but remember I don’t have an army of internet monkeys at my beck and call. I am doing this on my own…
