Hey All - Well, through a not so great life event I've been out of the game for over 2 weeks now. I can feel a massive difference throughout my body, and it very clearly tells me that deconditioning has set in. So, I have two schools of thought and I'm not sure really what to do. So - I'd love a few opinions on the matter. Option 1 - Restart my current cycle (you can read my log for the specifics if you're not familiar). I was really enjoying it but consistency really never set in. I'd have to go back to starting loads for sure. Option 2 - 8 x 8 for all of my core lifts, maybe for about 6 weeks. Option 3 - Power + Volume II (a past cycle name); alternating weeks between heavy triples and singles work, and volume (50+ reps per lift) work. Option 4 - ? So - SST lads, please chime in. The only thing I won't do is a 5 x 5 cycle - they bore me to tears. I'm returning to the gym soon and want to set up a plan - something that incorporates the HST principles whilst maintaining an SST focus. Let me know what you think.
