robert Posted March 18, 2012 Share Posted March 18, 2012 Hi everyone, I've been training non-stop since I made my return to lifting in November. I did a great job of keeping my journal updated for about 2 months and then I just didn't make it a priority to do so recently as I was swamped with other projects, including shipping out all the New You for the New Year prize packages. Even though I haven't kept my online journal updated, I have been keeping a paper journal and have been training 4, 5, or 6 times a week since November, without exception. I thought I'd be able to "go back and type up the past 3 or 4 weeks worth of journal entries" but I just don't know if it is worth the time. Maybe I'll do it later on down the road, but for now, I'm starting a new journal so I can keep up! Oh, and I still haven't touched a machine or cable since December, 2011. All barbells and dumbbells for me this entire year and I'm up 14 pounds since I returned to lifting in November March 17, 2012 Today I hammered out my Deadlift and Bent-Over Row workout. It went like this: Warm-up = I've been using the stair stepper for the past few months but now I'm switching to push-ups and sit-ups and some form of jump or leg exercise in order to focus a bit more on my chest and core. Those were the two muscle groups I injured in 2011 and haven't been training much since. This allows me to get a little bit of work in for them as they adapt to being under stress again.
