BW- 96.7kg
Didn't track cals. Was out driving for half the day. Made sure not to over eat though.

18/01/24
BW- 96.3kg
Total Cals- 2,382 (171g P, 169g C, 70g F)

Bench Press-
bar x 10, 40 x 5, 60 x 5, 70 x 5, 75 x 5 (RPE 9)

Deadlift-
60 x 5, 80 x 3, 90 x 5, 100 x 5 (RPE 7)

19/01/24
BW-96.5kg
Total Cals- 2,489 (159g P, 240g C, 102g F)

20/01/24
BW- 96.2kg
Didn't train or track cals. Was celebrating our wedding anniversary and went out for lunch and dinner. Over ate by a little but not too far out of whack.

21/01/24
96.9kg
Total Cals- 2,956 (175g P, 234g C, 134g F)

Decided to get back on a program. I wanted something simple, a meat and potatoes kind of program. I have spent too much time weighing program options and not enough training. First step is to get strong and lean and I can go from there. Decided on Barbaric Rites. Basic powerbuilding style program. Nothing fancy.

Day 1-
Squat- Heavy (5/5/5 @ 70/80/90%- optional 1/1/1 @ 100/105/110% - training max of 90kg)
bar x 5, 40 x 5, 62.5 x 5, 72.5 x 5, 80 x 5, 90 x 1

Stiff Leg DL- 5x60@60kg

BB Lunges- 2x10@20kg

Squats felt surprisingly good. Adjusted my stance a little wider than I've had it recently and it felt right in the power groove. 90 moved pretty quick and it felt like I had a lot more in the tank so I feel good about where this is headed.

Quick update on main overarching goals-
BW- get to 90kgs and decide if lean enough to begin bulk - need to get protein levels over 200g/day
Lifts- get back to 140kg squat, 100kg bench and 160kg deadlift. This should take around 10-12 weeks.

* the hammer strength vertical press machine rubber grips have been replaced so I did a set on it. the rubber grips are often damaged because the pressing motion puts a lot of stress on the handles. the machine is so uncomfortable to use when the handle has no cushion. my back feeling more tired than usual so I backed off the 170lb seated bicep curl down to 155 again. that's the only thing I changed on my routine.

...so...it's not really that high of a heart rate? The other people in the gym don't seem to wobble around after every squat set they do.

18 January

RUN 7K @ 42:50 ( 6:07 pace )

Felt fat, clumsy, stiff , de-trained and , of course , slow.

Makes sense though, this was the first 'real' (non-treadmill) run since this:

23 November

Run 7K @ 40:23 ( 5:46 pace )

Weather and work and weights won't let me run. I'm fine as long as i maintain this fitness level, which seems to be happening so far.

Let's get back at it, shall we?

Even with this lower volume, my legs felt less recovered than upper body. Has been that way for a while. Didn't feel full strength on the leg curls or the leg press. Don't mind not having to do more, just noting the surprise element of it.
