Well my training has been terrible all year and longer. I cant seem t get my fire back. So this week i thought it would be the perfect time to start a minimalist routine. Its a Dick Conner 2 day routine ( training only twice per week) i got from a Stuart McRobert book. Starting very light. Im also doing, and enjoying Pilates.

Squat 70 1 set 5
Bench 60 1 set 5
Rows 60 1 set 5
Press 40 1 set 5
Chins BW 1 set 5
Grip work pinching a 15kg bumper plate
Sat 24th
Awoke with a mysterious rhs oblique pain this morning so dropped the Deadlift and swapped Belt Squat for Bulgarian.
Bench (Shoulder grip) 55 1 set 5
Chins ( Curl grip) BW 1 set 6
Press 45 1 set 5
Bulgarian Squat BW 2 sets 10
Grip work on Vulcan Gripper.
Oblique very sore, very odd.
Hope you are all well! Colin.

Hi Colin, good to hear from you mate and glad you are still doing something. This will pass and if you just keep doing what you want and what you can you will be glad you did later. Turning up is half the battle and two days a week is doable. It will be enough for now if you are also doing Pilates.Sometimes taking a complete break works but other times it makes it much harder to get started again.We are all different of course but just doing anything you like and keeping the habit often gets you back on track eventually. BTW are those just the work sets listed and if so how many warm up sets are you doing? If you need some inspiration just think what Linda Cheeseman would think if she saw you on top form. ;)
Regards,Peter.
