Warming Back Up
I have done NO workout since before Christmas. My abs are marginally visible and I feel a tad out of shape despite washing extensively with Howard Obesity Ointment*.
It is now mid January and I hope the New Year Resolutionists have given up so the gym will be somewhat emptier. After four weeks or so off, I will start off with some light deadlifting, working on technique. I won't ramp up to a full program until the start of February.
I was reviewing my progress last year and given my other activites, I feel I need to make more room in my diary. To this end I am going to hit a 10-day cycle - thus I will have three workouts A, B and C, and will workout out every Monday and Friday, rotating through A, B and C on each subsequent workout. This means I will be in the gym only twice a week. I still aim to follow an RPT program.
With the extra recovery time I hope to pursue my martial arts with a little more intent, without detriment to my recovery.
*Joke. I just use regular soap.
