If this is the plan I laid out for you, then it's kind of mixed up and I can help you sort it out.

Either way, I'm glad you are enjoying it again.


I took your principles, of lowing the weight.

After that everything seemed to work ALLOT better.

I understand its kind of mixed up, and thats why I wanted your help in fine tuning it.


I'm just happy it went well, regardless of weather its not perfect, its a start. Allot better than what I was previously doing.

If you want to follow the type of lifting I was talking about, here are a few suggestions as you go forward. . .

Drop the weight down a little more and get 3 sets of 12 reps next session. Don't do ANY extra work sets. The goal is to make it feel easy, get all the sets and reps done with the same weight, and then we'll bump the weight a bit when you're ready.

Same as the Military Press. Drop a little bit of weight and get 3 sets of 12 reps. You keep failing to get all the reps and sets and then drop the weight to get everything done. Your body is telling you that it's given all it wants to give you. Continuing sets past failure is an advanced technique and not suggested for you at this time. It will eat into your recovery and you'll stall again.

This is a good start. Bump the weight up about 10 lbs next time and get 3 sets of 12 reps. Again, no extra sets just because you feel good. If you dig into your recovery too far then you'll just stall again. Enjoy the easy workouts while you can.

I won't mess with this as it seems you said it was something that BtB gave you.

If I had my way, I'd drop it all down to 1 set of 12 reps, it's much easier to gauge progress with fewer variables. But you seem to like the volume, so keep it to three sets if it makes you happy. Just realize that with three sets you'll always be doing high reps for those first couple of sets.

Thanks for the motivation guys. Couldn't do this without you.

OffRoad, I see what your saying, I'll bare that in mind. I can make adjustments as I go along, I'll see how next workout goes.

Next workout is Bench , Bent over rows , and finally.....SQUATS
Will looking into correct form before hand though, want t get the most out of it, don't have any experience with squats. Have done them before but never seriously like this.

No! Do exactly like I said, no adjustments. Stop messing around and let's get serious with this.

Use the bar, and only the bar, no heavier. I don't care if it makes you feel like a sissy or you think you can do more. Work on your form, get all your reps (if you can), and remember that perfect practice makes perfect.
