Well, its official. I'm back in the gym, as of today. Today's workout was pretty hot, but DAMN I'm weak. You'd think I'd never lifted before. Oh well, that's what 2 months of *no* lifting, preceded by about 1.5 years of slacking will do to a guy. So, try not to laugh too hard at my numbers.
Today, I basically did a full body workout. Yeah, yeah, I know, I never do full body workouts - I do a hardcore lifting split. But I figured with the long layoff, a little of everything all at once would be just the ticket to get my muscles prepped. So, I'm calling this a preparation phase. I'll do a similar workout Friday, then go ahead and hit the split next week. As I mentioned above, my weights here flat blow. In my defense though, they aren't TOO far off from my old numbers, and I did go a *little* light since it was my first time in a while. No sense paralyzing myself, right? Well, without further ado...
