Let me know what you think about my workouts. I know, I'm not having a good stretch of consecutive workouts lately but it should change soon.

Good to see your feeling better. I look forward to reading your journal. You say you've been working out on a similar routine for the last 2 years. How has your progress been lately? Are you happy with it?

Be sure to start out a little lighter than normal this week since you're coming back from an illness. You'll be sorry otherwise.

Thanks Stu. I'm taking some zinc to try to speed this cold along. Not sure if it's working or not but I am geting better regardless.

My workout plan won't be back to normal until around Feb 5th. I'll post the whole thing at that time.

You asked if I am seeing progress. Not really. As you can tell, my life is kindof hectic and I get lazy so I can't keep a consistant workout schedule. That puts me in a maintenance type of plan right now. That is why I started posting it on ExRx, for accountability. I'm fairly happy with it since it's a complete body workout so the only thing I think I need to improve is my consistency.

Saw your post on not being able to make it to the gym. Here's what I would suggest. Go to simplefit.com, pick a few bodyweight only workouts for that situation. They aren't that much, but will keep you from stagnating

How is the 8 rep range working for you in your workouts? Also do you mix up the workouts legs and chest daily? Just curious.

I like the 3 sets of 8 reps plan. I was trying 4 sets of 6 reps to see if I could push out more on the last rep but didn't really see any difference.

I use the 2 day push/pull plan http://www.exrx.net/Workouts/Workout2PP.html. I've been using it for a while and rotate between 3 different versions of the workout using a different version every month (when I remember to switch it). I don't seperate chest and leg workouts cuz I don't use a ton of weight & the plan includes both body parts on the same day. Hope that helped.

PM me if you want more info but I'm no expert on the subject by any means. I just do what works for me in the time I have.
