I will be doing Madcow's version of the 5x5 and see how far I progress.
Body Composition, mainly focused on increasing strength
(total reps) 5,3,3,3,2
Standing Barbell Extensions
Toes to Sky
Crunches with elevated legs
*Numbers are sets x reps x weight used (ex. 5x5x100)
**Sometimes I don't hit the rep goal, so the reps I did are in parenthesis: sets x reps (reps) (reps) x weight used [ex. 5x5(5)(5)(4)(4)x100]
Felt good to get back into it. I've lost all the strength I used to have and have to start on the bunny weights, but it's just a starting point. I look forward to 2 months from now being able to have at least respectable weight loaded onto the bar. The next step will be to get the diet into check, then adding some HIIT cardio into the non-lifting days. One step at a time, though.
Pullups were the most difficult!
I hope I don't overspend my money and have to make up a diet based on
