Ok I'll post recent happenings, since someone did ask 1.
Went back to a workout I did over 10 years ago, because it seemed to work for me back than. I did the traditional chest/tri's, back/bi's, legs, shoulders/forearms, rest. Later decided to switch it up a little. I read how Schwarzenegger would superset with chest and back exercises
, so I decided to give that a try. Now I'm doing chest/back, tri's/bi's, shoulders/forearms, legs.2.
I've started jump rope again, unfortunately my right knee has not been kind ever since I injured it out 2 years ago. I make sure to land soft, but after a 14min jump, the knee hurts the next day, and still hurt about a week later. The other day I managed to do 16mins, the next day my knee is fine, but a few days later it starts to hurt. I'm definitely not jumping as much as I'd like because of that.3.
I have been biking a lot more too, easier on the knees I noticed. Went for a ride, got lost a couple times, ending up doing 20km (which is a lot for me, I am a fat ass and all lol)4.
My leg workouts are very light, mostly plyometrics. Burpees, jump squats, jump lunges, swiss ball squats, and wall squat isometric, etc. I'm slowly adding weight to my squats, but my priority is getting my hip and core area more flexible and strong before attempting anything crazy.5.
My heavy bag has unfortunately been in storage. I moved into a condo and can't really hang it anywhere, but can't seem to sell it either (I got a great deal and went through a lot to get it, so I'm a little attached to it).6.
I'm stretching a lot more than usual. I've come to the conclusion my knee and back issues are because of tightness and my body doesn't perform to it's full potential because of that. I'm mostly sticking with traditional yoga poses, pigeon pose is my favorite 7.
Nutrition wise, I haven't been eating too well in the past, probably one reason I've become such a chubbo. A lot of bread, processed crap, eating heavy late in the day. But ever since I got back into the gym, I've been eating more clean. Usually around 1-2cups of beans and/or lentils with 1-2cups rice, protein shakes, apples, bananas - all daily now.
Began taking 5000iu vitamin D because the recommended nmol/L is 75-250, and mine was 28. B12 recommended is 198-615, mine was 458, but I'm taking 2000 mcg daily just for a little kick.
