Hey MF. I workout at home and have been trying to find a program that allows me to be a bit inconsistent yet still progress. So far I really like focusing on 1 compound lift for 531 sets, then 5 sets of 10 alternating with an assistance exercise. I need to mainly be focused on my health which I talked about earlier in my journal. I also have a busy schedule and am getting freelance work which doesn't allow me to be consistent week to week with my time for working out. I was thinking of a simple 2 day split or even working out early in the morning but I like what I have going on now. I'll see how I progress. My goal is simply to be healthy while adding some muscle and strength. I really want to represent a healthy vegan lifestyle to everyone around me and be a positive source of inspiration.
10/12/12: 531 Cycle 1 Week 3
Deadlifts: 177.2 x 5, 202.2 x 3, 222.2 x 1, 115 x 10 x 5
Situps: 5 sets of 10
BP: 86 x 5, 97.2 x 3, 107.2 x 1, 63.6 x 10 x 5
Rows: 63.6 x 10 x 5
Curls: 43.6 x 10, 10, 8, 8, 6
I missed a few days as my schedule got busy but I'm back at it and feeling good. Top set of deadlifts was tough - I'll video next time to make sure I'm not rounding my back too much. I tried using weight for situps but I'm still getting a good workout with body weight. I felt the whole workout in my abs. For curls, I stood against a wall with my elbows touching the wall to make sure I maintained strict form. I've been using a stopwatch on my phone to time between sets. Been using about 1 minute between sets of 10s and about 2 minutes between the 531 sets.
