Had some RC/shoulder pain so I took some time off, and then the last few days I've been knackered from a couple of ice hockey games and ice hockey training. Back in the gym tonight for a cheeky chest workout... Hoping I haven't lost all my gains

No OJ + 2weeks off = A weak Scoobs.
i bet a lot is a mental game, you expect to perform worse and you will.

It went better than I thought, pleasantly surprised.

I was expecting 13 days off(with a less than great diet) + cutting my doses of stuff right down to result in some what substantial loses, but that doesn't seem to be the case

RIP Volume Brah.

In all seriousness, I've never really done high volume, it was only a few weeks worth of workouts that were high volume. I had more time back then and the gym was killing time to a certain extent, hence more volume. Now I'm busier I'm cutting it back as I don't have the time and it isn't particularly beneficial or needed anyway.

Had a really bad cold/chest infection the past few weeks so I haven't really been training. I've had two real light sessions, but nothing worth logging.

Started a cut a few days ago so we'll see how that goes....

Wednesday 2nd April 2014

Chest and squats

Barbell squat -
100kg X 5, 5, 5

Incline barbell bench press -
80kg X 5, 5, 5
100kg X 3
105kg X 1
80kg X 8, 6, 4

First time squatting in nearly 3 months, felt good. Pretty light, wasn't too taxing and had quite a bit left in the tank, just wanted to ease back into things.

I'm going to try and start squatting every workout with some deadlifts thrown in here and there too as I can't be bothered for the life of me to have an actual leg day, I lose the will to live. It's much easier to grin and bare a few sets of squats when there are fun things to look forward to after, like bench pressing and shoulder pressing.

Good plan.


I'd also vary it so not just grinding with 3*5 everyday . Do alternating heavy/volume sessions maybe?

Not too well. The past 6 weeks or so has consisted of taking 2weeks off with a shoulder injury, and near enough 2weeks off ill ( the odd crappy sessions here and there). All those lost gains! I'm back on it now though, time to make some gains.

I'm going to 3 X 5 for the next few sessions while the weight isn't too taxing, then when I get back up towards my max I'm going to do something like you suggest so I don't burn out.
