Back in the gym today. A little stiff last week post-workout, but otherwise nothing to report negative.
Upping the weight a bit today.
Squats: 135x50, 175x5, 185x5, 195x5, 205x5
Bench: 135x5, 145x5, 155x5, 165x5, 175x5, 185x51
DB Curls: 25x5x10
DB rows: 25x5x10
Just threw in the DB work for my pull movement. Wasn't too bad - the right bicep tendon wasn't thrilled with curls, so I'll keep them low key. The chief goal is to get the big movement numbers back up. Squat is at 50% of where I'd like, but it will take some time to get back up to that 405 again. Bench is going pretty good. Being able to hit 255-275 would be best case. I doubt 315 is in me since I never hit it prior to turning 50 lol.

Continuing on with my recovery plan. I sprained my wrist back in early September and again last weekend, so it's a bit stiff. Hips and glutes are getting looser, which is good.
Squats: 135x5, 155x5, 175x5, 185x5, 195x5, 185x4
Bench: 135x5, 145x5, 155x5, 160x5, 165x5, 175x5, 155x6

Back in the gym today. I'm quite rusty and my flexibility is reduced. I'll take it easy and just get my stretch and movements back first.
Hip band walk
Kettlebell swings 24 kg x 2x10
Bench: 95x10, 115x10, 135x2x10, 135x5,3,2,1 (max effort)
I wasn't surprised to see my hips and glutes were pretty tight. While I haven't been doing any exercise officially while off I have been doing a lot of manual labour, so my upper body was OK. I've had two birthdays since I was last in the gym, so it's probably best my 56 year old self takes it slow.
