2016.

I've lived to see another year.

Life in 2015 was hard, but fruitful. Training was ok. Better some days. Awesome on some. Horrible on others.

Was diagnosed with arthritis in my hips, after a few months of debilitating pain. I figured lifestyles factors (namely poor stress management) caused it. I felt the changes happening. Like, inside my body, I kinda knew what was going on... but I also figured that I could dial it back at any point.

Kinda the way an addict claims that (s)he can quit whenever they want.

I'm pretty good shape mind you. Not stage-ripped... but solid and decently lean.

That won't be enough this year though.

I've dedicated a lot of time to people, my business, family etc. ...and I don't regret that.

But, this year, I'm giving a bit more of me... to me.

4th January

Not a good day for eating. Actually? It was pretty horrible. 6:41 p.m. now. Only one meal in for the day... and none of this was on purpose.

One day at a time I suppose.

NB: Glass of wine before training.

Standing overhead press:
3 sets: 95 lbs x 10 reps each
3 sets: 115 lbs x 10 reps each
3 sets: 135 lbs x 6 reps each
3 sets: 155 lbs x 4 reps each
3 sets: 185 lbs x 2 reps each (strict press... REALLY beat up my abs)

barbell standing calf raise:
3 sets: 185 lbs x 15 reps each
3 sets: 275 lbs x 10 reps each

deadlift:
2 sets: 135 lbs x 6 reps each
2 sets: 225 lbs x 6 reps each
2 sets: 295 lbs x 3 reps each

365 lbs x 3 reps
415 lbs x 1 rep
465 lbs x 1 reps

Comments: haven't lifted heavy in months. And it felt like shit... being in such a hypocaloric state.

Barbell Curl:
5 sets: 80 lbs x 8 reps each

Roman Chair Sit-up:
5 sets: 10 reps each

Pretty decent session overall. :hello:

5th January - I rested today.

6th January
Standing single leg curl:3 sets: 30 lbs x 10 reps each

NB: My hamstrings aren't lagging... but, as they can never be too big, I'm seeking to improve them. (That and the fact that, by targeting them first, my knees get properly warmed up... and stay pain-free)
