60kg climb (Cycle 7 repeat)

Discussion in 'Training Logs' started by imported_hotterdog, Oct 6, 2008.

  1. since losing my job, been down physically with a bad
    bout of cough which left me out of e gym for an entire
    wk. mentally, been feeling depressed & also not eating
    enough trying to save $.

    as a result, i'm down from 63 or 64 kg down to 60kg
    or 132 ibs.

    restarting my cycle with some modifications again
    changed some exercises. not looking for tremendous
    growth but to get back my lost weight & self esteem.

    wk 1 day 1 (15s)

    1) squats: 120 ibs
    2) lying leg curls: 30 ibs
    3) standing calf raises: 200 ibs
    4) incline bench press: 110 ibs
    5) reverse lat pulldown: 60ibs
    6) front military press: 75ibs
    7) barbell shrugs: 125 ibs

    10) close grip benchpress: 125 ibs
    11) deadlifts: 160ibs
    12) rear seated bentover: 5kg

    finished within 40 mins. just bam bam & left
    due to new temp job location, i'm unable to eat
    like last time (have to fine tune my food, can't even
    cook, no microwave, all i got is a water cooler) & canteen.

    so prob have to drink oats with milkpowder for breakfast
    for starters. drank too much milk powder & ended up with
    minor diarrhoea despite me being lactose tolerant.

    am wondering if i should change my workout.
    seems like my new location needs some travelling
    to e gym & if i encounter jams, it'll be even longer.
    not sure if i've enough in e tank to do a full body workout

    going to do some research. [​IMG]

    Hang in there, Hotterdog. We all hit rough spots every so often. Just keep your head down and work your way through.

    thanks tunnelrat for e encouragement.

    went to see chinese senseh over e wkend & he diagnosed that my cough wasn't completely cured & e phlegm kept accumulating & its so much better now after his medication.

    still i can't do heavy at all, so opted for 30 mins walk
    on treadmill followed by e following

    1) squats: 70 ibs x 20 x 2
    2) bench press: 70 ibs x 20 x 2
    3) seated side laterals: 7.5 kg x 15 x 2
    4) bicep curls: 15 kg x 15 x 2
    5) skullcrushers: 15kg x 20 x 2

    prob i'll just do cardio nxt wkout. priority
    is getting my breath back 1st before my strength.

    Hey Hotter, seeing you are having to cope with a rotten bill of health right now why not just try a really simplified routine. Sometimes I would just do two or three compound exercises in a session. You can still get great results from doing this and you can decide how much volume you can cope with on any particular day. On a few occasions I have done a workout consisting of a single exercise like deads, squats or cleans. Squat cleans, with a few jerks thrown in for good measure, make for a particularly good workout.

    Anyway, hope you feel a lot better soon. You may lose a few battles but I'm sure you'll win the war in the end.
