  • V1hyps Training Journal

    What's up everyone! I was going through some of my old post/subscriptions on here and found one of my old training journals and since I just started a 2-way split (which I haven’t done in some time) I thought I would try and get one going again. I will attempt to post on here at least once a week if not more often. School keeps me busy so I can’t promise anything

    WK1: 11/23-11/27
    **So, I’m going to start off by stating due to age, injuries and a general wear and tear from the 40 plus years of hitting the iron and being in the military has required me to incorporate a few warm-up exercises into my routine prior to starting the workout. I didn’t feel a need to post those here.

              12/20-12/24 Week #5
              Other than tweaking my lower back during my A2 workout, the week went well. I think I might have another week or two before I throw a de-load in. That is unless my lower back takes longer than I think it does to recover.

                12/28-01/01 Week #6:

                Well, as far as weeks ago, I would not say that this last week was my best. I’m still dealing with tweaking my lower back last Thursday which means that although I was able to “beat the logbook” on some movements, the pain/stiffness of my lower back hindered my ability to do so on a few others (**). With my back still being an issue, I’m going to take a few weeks doing some other things until I feel it’s good. I’ll try and post what I’m doing as time permits.

                  01/10/21:
                  So, the lower back is taking longer to recover than it has in the past. Although the pain has gotten better, I’m still having some difficulties (pain/stiffness) when bending forward or from sitting from any length of time. However, other than that, everything else feels decent for a beat-up old fart like me. With the lower back issue stiff lingering, I’m hesitant to begin another DC program yet. I still have a desire to train intensely and make every effort to create change. Heck, I’m evening playing around with the idea of stepping back on stage towards the latter part of the year even. At present, I’m accessing which direction I want to take my training in. I have some ideas but still haven’t come up with a game plan….More to follow…..
