I’m 38, female and doing it without HOT-ROX (banned in aus), to compensate I’m stacking Carbolin 19 and se7en. I’ve been consistently lifting for past couple of years, but surgery the week before christmas meant no lifting for 6 weeks (seems okay now but still need to be careful - was an upper ab hernia and they had to cut in rather than keyhole so downtime was longer). Got back into the gym a week and a half ago, and carrying a few extra kilos (no gym, surgery and christmas not a good mix).
Day one was cruisy - just nepa (walk with dogs) as will be doing weights mon, wed, fri. Taking a little time to get used to the taste - it is very sweet and I’m a sweet tooth! My big challenge with be the food - still have to cook and prepare stuff for kids (and hubbie) - as a family we have a healthy diet, my biggest issue is nibbles and lollies - and i’m hoping this will assist in dealing with that.
Day two - hit the gym this morning - my workouts are always in the morning (6am) to work around the family.
My weights are pretty little - but as long as there is improvement I’m cool with that.
Front Squat: 10kg on olympic bar 5/5/5/5 will have to up that weight.
Lat Pull down: 41kg 5/ 45kg 5/ 50kg 5/ 50kg 5 - again playing with weights
DB Bench Press: 10kg 5/ 12.5kg 5/5/5 should go up with this but need to be careful of shoulder problems
swissball roll out (subs for ab wheel) one set of 20 - probably need to go a little harder on this.
I was going to go with beginners (because I’d been out for 6 weeks) but switched to intermediate - I often am too easy on myself and question how heavy I can go - this should give me that push I need to go a little harder.
Biggest eating challenge today was really wanting the crusts of the vegemite sandwich my youngest had for lunch. mmm fresh wholemeal bread - realised I was a little hungry and hadn’t had second shake - easy fixed - went and had a shake. We will see how dinner goes.
