    Default Starquest's road to recovery & mass training log.........

    Okay folks! this is the beginning for me, so bare with a brother. It has been almost a year since I have trained so I found my endurance and strength very, very low, to be expected though. Like I said in another thread I started off doing Chest, Shoulders, Tri's so I could recover over the weekend. I was gonna do this thread earlier but, to be honest I can barely start using my arms now, LMAO! Fuck the chest and shoulders. I guess the scull crushers destroyed my triceps. Seeing me is quite funny, and the pain alone never wants me to stop and start over again, ooooouch! I am pretty open to suggestion so feel free. I will ask though, at least wait till I have hit a wall/plateau 1st before advising me to try a new movement. I do love trying new methods though, all the way from BB'ing, Olympic, PL, etc. Right now I am pulling a 3 day a weeker until time allows for a day or 2 more per week. If any of you see me not going up in #'s or weight please, without a doubt give me a hand. Depending on how I look and how things go, I may compete once or twice just to have gone that far. I can list my diet, cardio, sleep, gear at anytime if anyone needs to tweak it, or wanting it for themselves.........
    TRT = 250mg Test-E EW / 150mg Deca EW

    Here we go, 2nd day back it. it is feeling really awesome to be back in the gym. Still feeling the wrath of no endurance and low strength. Soon this will be a thing of the past though. I am so thankful to have my woman train with me, and she is joining tonight so keep a eye out. Tomorrow is gonna be the worst !!!LEGS!!! LMAO! So here's todays work out.......

    Back & Biceps

    3-17-12

    Lat Pull Downs 3 warm ups, 1 work set = 120x5
    Pull Ups 2 work sets = 4 / 2.5 LOL!
    Seated Rows 2 warm ups, 1 work set = 120x5
    Dumb Bell Rows 1 work set = 40x10
    Hyper Extensions 2 work sets = 12 / 10 reps
    Dumb Bell Shrugs 2 warm ups, 1 work set = 60x12
    EZ Bar Curls 1 warm up, 1 work set = 35x7
    Concentration Curls 1 work set = 15x10

    So everybody knows, I am saving some of the more vigorous excersizes like Good Mornings / deadlifts / etc. until I/we have become more conditioned to avoid injury. All in all, it was a pretty decent work out today.

    Keep it simple and stay at it....

    You might want to think about doing more compound lifts while you're getting back into shape.... You'll just recruit more motor units into the lift...

    After such a long lay off I think you are doing good by keeping it simple and only lifting three days a week. The one thing you really can be thankful for is that you are already lean so you do not have to spend so much time on the cardio trying to drop weight. That being said. I have always found that getting on the eliptical or going for a run/walk always helped me work out the soreness. So maybe a 4th day workout could be a light cardio/stretch out day. Thats something you do not need a gym for everytime. Keep up the hard work and keep us posted.

    Okay, legs where pretty much nice and light. that being said, WOW, they are still bumping hard and OMG sore as hell. You all know how it is though, I'm sure. the worst is over I hope. I am on my 2nd week of TRT, and gonna need to order something here real soon it seems. getting low, and only have about 2.5-4 weeks left, IDK, lol. All in all, I am having a great time getting my swole back on.

    Legs

    3-18-12

    Hack Squats 3 warm ups, 1 work set = 90x8
    Leg Press 1 warm up, 1 work set = 180x8
    Leg Ext 1 work set = 90x14
    Lying Leg Curl 1 work set = 80x14
    Seated Calf Raise = 70x14

    MC, I like the push, pull method. I will certainly entertain that, and possibly switch over after a few months of my series. You know I got OCD, so full coverage on the iso's and compounds is what I like and works well for me. I am certainly looking into it though bro!
