Default Long Road Back: Carll1174's Log

Ok so I have ben away for literally years, I cant get in the gym as often, or perhaps as regularly as i did before and I know my lifts (as has my frame) will have gone to shit.

BUT I am getting back at it and just hope (with touching 40 posibly being a factor) that It wont take me two years to get back to where I was two years ago, and I also have to try to stop worrying about where I would have been had I not gone off the boil for that last couple of years...

With all that in mind here is my new log:

I will be ustilising a basic A/B full body approach, I had my best gains doing The Reeves Classic a while back, but I dont know if I will be able to commit 3 days a week and certainly dont know if those 3 days will be Mon/Wed/Fri etc etc... So I think this should work well for me.

Workout A

Squat 3 x 6-10
Barbell Bench Press 3 x 6-10
Bent Over Row 3 x 6-10
Stiff Leg Deadlift 2 x 10-15
Ab Exercise 3 x 10-25

Workout B

Deadlift 3 x 6-10
Seated Barbell Press Behind Neck 3 x 6-10
Close Grip Bench Press 3 x 6-10
Standing Barbell Curl 3 x 6-10
Seated Calf Raise 2 x 10-25

I may play around a little and sub BP for INC BP, seated Calfs for standing BB Calfs etc etc and I am sure this will evolve, but at the minute it is a simple plan to get me going, using a lot of my favourite lifts and in a rep range that I like.

Progression I will try to add a rep to all sets each week. The Reeves had me adding a rep per set per week, but I worked the same move 3 times per week so this should have me doing about the same. If I end up doing the A workout more than once in a week then so be it, but I ll just add reps to the last set, or something like that. Ill see how I feel and how longs it takes me to get back to a reasonable level of strength and just play it by ear...

27/09/2013 workout (First w/o in just over 2 years!!)

I used half of all old weights, there, or there abouts...

Squat (weights reps sets)
Bar x 12
50kg x 10
70kg x 6 x 2
70kg x 8

Inc Bench
Bar x 15
30kg x 10
50kg x 6 x 3

BB Row
Bar x 12
40kg x 10
60kg x 6 x 3

Bar x 15
40kg x 10 x 2


I could have literally cried at how hard this was! Seriously. I was huffing and puffing, shaking and feeling sick! To say I am gutted is an understatement... BUT it can only get better, right?
