Default VeeKay's Training Journal.....

Hi everyone!

I've not been training for quite some time due to lower back & hip injury, but finally my doc has told me that i can lift weights again. I've lost some weight & strength over these months, so, initially, my focus will be to regain lost strength. This is my first online journal & i hope it goes a long way & keep me motivated.

Age- 23
Height- 5' 8.5"
Current- 160 lbs
Goal- 200 lbs

My diet is pretty much clean at around 4000is cals with 40/40/20 macros.
I'll be doing a 3x5 squat program for 2-3 months before i switch to hypertrophy workouts.

Feel free to suggest any improvements/advice & pls dont mind my english as it is not my first language

even though there's a good gym near my house,most of the time i workout with my friend at his farm.. he has maintained a small 'park' at the corner of his farm, surrounded by walls & there's a room in it where we keep all the equipments- an adjustable bench(incline/flat/decline), 5 & 7 ft barbells, 2 db rods, about 400 lbs weight.. self made squat rack, pull up bar & dip stations...

we DO go to the gym whenever we feel the need & make use of the machines etc.. but most of our time we work with free weights.. trust me, there's nothing like squatting barefoot on the moist green grass in the evening

Did a light workout last night..

Bench
150- 4x8

Inverted rows
BW- 4xF

Laterals
22- 3x8

Squats
Empty bar 3x8

I experienced no back pain during or after squats, so i did 1 very light set of deadlift

I felt good this morning.. no pain or stiffness.. but i'll be really careful to adding weight to exercises in which lower back is involved

glad to see there was no pain, seems like you're playing it safe, you should be good to go in no time!

thanks.. Iím not fully recovered, so its best to take precautions.. Iíll take some time building back up slowly rather than pile on weights in a hurry & hurt myself again.. I donít want that, especially when my exams are around the corner

Last night's workout:

100 m Sprints x 4 - 45 seconds rest

Pull ups Ė 4 x F

Incline Db
55 lbs -3x8

Arnold press
22 lbs -3x8

BB Curls 55 lbs
ss
BB Extensions 55 lbs- 3x10

Note: All my weights are rounded off in lbs(we use kgs here)
