Among the Living: Training, 2/24/11

After a little over three months, I’m back to it.  Easy one today.  Every journey starts with a small step, today’s step was getting there, figuring out how long the routine takes (both getting out of the house and showering, etc at the gym), and moving a little weight.

For the first several weeks, I’ll train three times a week using something very similar to what’s in Rippetoe’s Starting Strength.

Squat
45×5
95×5
3×5 @ 135
Easy, felt good, form was pretty solid, which is unusual for me after a long layoff.

Press
45×5
3×5 @ 65

Deadlift
135×5
185×5

Chins
5×3

Stretched.

Training time:  6:10AM – 6:55AM

Performance enhancers: Monster Lo-Carb, Anthrax, watching the TRX straps come loose and drop the guy using them to the floor (further proving that anything you can do on them can be done just as effectively and more safely with something else.)
