So, this will be my first day utilizing one of my old time routines, like when I was 14...I was trained by a competitive fitness model or around there...She was a beautiful philipinano with jet black hair flowing down to her  bottom...Anyway, she stressed COMPOUND MOVEMENTS as your core (base) routine...Then, as she would mimic the Arnold coined phrase "u can do the 'girly man' exercises later if u feel like it"...lol...So then, here is one of my many variations of her style of lifting...


Day 1

Push Routine

    1. Flat Back Bench Press; Incline; Decline
    2. Flat Back Flies (Totaly Arnold Style)
    3. Miltary Bench Press (shoulders)
    4. Close Grip Flat Back Bench Press (Triceps); Tricep pushdowns; Tricep extensions

I think that should do it for day 1...I will report back with details on numbers once accomplished...I will publish day 2 then...

Hi Lee,

Training look steady, do you have any short or long term goals?

Hello K_Dogs,


I do have goals...Long term is to be as healthy as possible, first and foremost! Short term is to get back into shape and tweak diet/training to fit a more bodybuilding type lifestyle!...I have always lifted for power, so now I am ready to tone it down and basically have a fantabulous physique while being as stated earlier, as healthy as possible!

My training is very half-ass right now...I'm trying to let my body get acclimated to lifting again...Hopefully, within a few months of sticking to my routine, I should be able to go at it full force!

That looks like a good approach to have.  Physique means nothing if you're not physically healthy.  The two should go hand in hand.   Keep going and I'm sure you'll reach your first objective - you've already lifted a lot previously, so shouldn't take long for your muscles to adapt.

Thank you for the encouragement, SS...Hopefully, I can maintain this time and finish what I started...I hope you are right in regards to the muscles responding favorably...It gets much harder to come back and get going again...Maybe one of these days before I die I can catch up with some of u UK guys....
