Thanks for the input Chip. I appreciate the advice and support. A little rest sounds just great I'll take a little breather and see how things shake out!

Default Back to it!

Had some time off, and feel much better. I also seem to be quite a bit weaker It's only been a week off!!!

Upper Back, Chest & Abs

Forward leaning dips: 10,10,10,10
Flyes: 35x10,8,6 30x10 (had been doing 40 lb sets)
Decline wide pushups 10,7,5,7
Flat wide grip bench press: 110x10,4 90x8,8

One Arm Dumbell Row: 90x8,8 80x10 (had been doing 100lb)
Shrugs: 160x10,10,10
T-Bar rows: 140x10 165x10,10
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown: 90x10,10,10

Abs (only did two sets)
Crunch: 20,20
Reverse crunch w/ankle weights: 30,30
cross-over crunches: 20,20
Side bridges 75secx2
Ab roller extensions: 15,15

Didn't feel (and wasn't!) very strong at all, which kinda sucks. Still, it wasn't a bad workout. I didn't dread it, so that's an improvement! We'll see how things look next time I work these muscle groups - and I'll make it a point to have excellent nutrition beforehand, unlike today.

Maybe next time after a week off you could try only doing about 50-60% of your 1 rep max and do sets of 15 for the first week. That's about what I do and it helps.

Hiya Chip,

Thanks for the advice on getting back into it. I had *no idea* that taking a week off would set things back so much...

Well, yes, it does. But only very shortly. Maybe you could go to the HST website or just search "strategic decondtioning" and see what happens in this time off. It's really good, I'm sure you've read about how you have to keep on adding higher weight to get the benefit of weight lifting. Supposedly, if you take this time off, you "decondition" the muscle and therefore you can use lighter weight and still build muscle.

Anyway, just search HST and read up and maybe apply part of what they do to your situation (like the lower weight / higher rep) after this "deconditioning". LIke I said, works for me! So don't be scared to take time off when you need to again, just learn how to use it to your advantage
