And yes, before I caught cold, I had chance to do my first workout of
5X5 StrongLifts programme, which I felt was quite good..

so just hoping to get back to 5X5 as soon as I can..

Feeling better than last week..I actually practiced BB front squat yesterday
evening in my garage with ~30 lbs. Also practiced correct technique of deadlift.

Went to walk this morn.

I think I could start working out from today..but rememer to take is slow this week. I was feeling bad about having missed about 1-2 weeks of working out --I told myself: Rest of 50 week that count , not just missing 1 or 2 weeks due to being sick.

so, hoping to slowly start working out (mainly 5X5 stronglifts) from this week..

Also, over the weekend I came across a boxer type training routine on exrx, that I would like to try out for few months. I am thinking of doing
5x5 for 2-3 months then switch to boxer routine after that to add variety.

Lets see how it goes..
