This week felt better than last, my strength is slowly getting back to where it was before I took some time off. I had my hardest week of my program, so the weights were a little lighter, otherwise I may not have been able to complete all of my sets. This coming week is my easiest week so I’ll be able to get through my lifts quicker.
On Saturday I worked all day and was feeling restless and stressed, so I went to my happy place, aka the gym. I hopped on the stair master and watched some Youtube videos and felt so much better. I didn’t have the energy to lift after working all day and I needed to zone out. (I don’t recommend zoning out while lifting) I like doing cardio when I need to clear my head. It’s easy for me to just use the stair master or run sprints and forget about everything on my mind.
Monday: complete off day
- Squat: 150# 5×7
- Deadlift 170# 6×5
Wednesday: complete off day

- Squat: 160# 6×5

Any good workout suggestions for somebody who’s athletic prowess peaked in 8th grade?
I too would appreciate a post on this topic.
