Yesterday got crazy with my business, and unfortunately I was unable to train. However, today I got started on my bounce back. This was my first real workout in 6-8 weeks, and it showed.

My goals right now are to wake up some muscle memory, get back into the ritual of training 5 days per week, and begin to chop off the body fat I've gained while maintaining muscle.

Estimated PR's now would be.

BB Bench: 245
Squat: 245-275
Deadlift: 225-250

So a little over half what I used to lift. With that said I am no longer training for max out and power, and I am more concerned about becoming the best performance athlete I can at this stage of life and beyond. I picture myself as a lean, ripped guy in his 40's, still playing basketball, rock climbing, and being extremely active. To get into that shape I have a long way to go.

Measurements cold last night were: 42 inch waist, 17.25 arms, 48 inch chest, 16 inch calf, 24.5 quads.

On to today's WORKout:

Quads & Shoulders

Superset #1: BB Squats + BB Standing Military Press
Warmup: 75 x 8 + 65 x 8
Set 1: 135 x 8 + 85 x 8
Set 2: 135 x 8 + 85 x 8
Set 3: 135 x 8 + 85 x 8

Superset #2: Prowler Push (on rubber making it hard as sin) + 18lb Sledge Hammer Overhead (hitting big ass tire)
Set 1: 90lbs (+prowler) x 20 yards + 12 sledges
Set 2: 35lbs (+prowler) x 20 yards + 12 sledges
Set 3: Same as set 2

Superset #3: Plate-Loaded Leg Press + DB Arnold Presses
Set 1: 4 plates x 12 + 40's x 10
Set 2: Same
Set 3: Same

3 sets of DB Lateral Raises: 20's x 10

The supersetting and very little rest had me warn out. Heart rate was high throughout, and I'm just really, really out of shape.
But everything felt great, even with light weight.

Nutrition screenshot below. My goal is to stay beneath 1,700 calories daily, and consume between 50/25/25 and 60/20/20 (carbs, protein, fat)

Hope to begin chatting with some of you guys in here. Have a great night.
