APRIL

25th

didn't realise just how weak i am

even mild to moderate work-outs are enough to deplete me

it's been a few years since i had a break of a month or more

let's see what no training at all produces

APRIL

20th

i just can't stop myself from "overdoing it" when it comes to the weights

i feel permanently "washed out"

starting today will be taking a different approach

will keep the weights the same for the squat and deadlift and circuit training

but will stop the moment any stress or strain starts

a quick run yesterday and today suggest it will be 2, 3, 4, or five times a day of between 10 and twenty reps for both exercises

will make an entry if anything interesting or important happens

by transferring as much of the weight as possible onto my left side (my weak side) while coming up in the squat, the strength gained transferred to the deadlift, and for the first time while doing the deadlift, all of the effort was felt in the left foot (sole/heel). walking became noticeably more sure-footed as a result. The squat still retains the title as "the queen of exercises"
