I managed to get there today for a bench session which will be the catalyst that gets me going again.

I've started back on my 16 week programme and to say I've not done anything for two weeks I was pleasantly surprised to hit 100kg for 8 reps.

Last run through which was exactly 5 months ago I was only at 110kg so not too far down really. See how the doms are though I guess......

Accessories were decent but my mate seems to have decided he wants to hit pretty much every machine in the gym so I had to separate off and do my own thing.

I'm not sure what will happen programme wise. I'm happy to work towards a 1RM on the bench assuming spotters are allowed by then but squats and deadlifts I'm either going to leave out completely or maybe adjust to have a minimum of 3 or 4 reps.

Main thing for me right now is getting back in to a routine.

Twitter is good for boobs, but there are definitely more tits on there.

Who do you think Joe's team will advise him to pick, Mint?

So many protests, but is Whitmer's state where they all rocked up to protest about lockdown with their guns?

Had a slight worry on Tuesday night where my heart kept skipping a beat, and I'm a little on the hypochondriac side now, so took myself to A&E but all seemed ok, just need to organise to see a cardiologist to make sure its nothing too sinister. I am pretty sure its all good, but I feel significantly less undestructable these days so want to double check.

Given everything you've been through, I don't think you could ever be labelled a hypochondriac for wanting things checked out, mate.

Hope they get you in and given the all clear lively, so you can forget about it.

True, I do think I have a reasonably good balance, there's been a few times I've been a little worried and just gone through it. Want to find the balance so I'm not that guy that spends more time badgering the NHS than actually living. Every time I have any encounter with the NHS i come away thinking how mental it is we get access to them. I am sure people do have bad experiences but I cant think of a single time I have come away not completely content with the process.

Yeah, I think most people would be straight on the blower if their heart started doing that. Definitely agree on the latter. They're superb, and for all the moaners, I'd send them to the states for a few years, and see how they like those apples.

NHS is amazing, and we're lucky to have it!

I couldn't deadlift 130lbs, so that's pretty decent Grin

I'm back to 60kg working sets for bench, too.

My strength is down a fair bit across everything, but I didn't want to push it first week, and going to stick to the same weights until I go away in 4 weeks time, and then try to hammer myself in the run up to Xmas.

My biggest achievement over lockdown is not putting on much weight, considering I didn't touch MfP once Cheltenham was done, lol.

Glad we're all back at it, in various guises and levels of enthusiasm, as it may be Smiley

60kg is tough, couldn't believe how heavy it was, I am sure there was a day where that was a warm up. Very much a working set in todays world.

I am going through so many quandaries with MFP lately, especially with the constant obesity talk. I still think its an essential option, I struggle to find too many reasons for people not to use it at some point, not perhaps forever or for long periods, but for a few weeks at at time to create awareness. I think anyone coming out of lockdown can be somewhat forgiven regardless of the outcome. Pretty unheard of in terms of situation. Do you use it reguarly/have you used it regularly?

It's being widely reported that Gretchen Whitmer went to Delaware last weekend to discuss the job with Joe.

https://apnews.com/65025dc16aa18353cf868658d9b2314a

Her name came to the top briefly in early Summer, but she hasn't been mentioned much for a while. It would seem that she is still an active possibility, though it doesn't necessarily mean any more than that. It's known that Biden has met several candidates recently but we don't have the definite names of the others, because their people haven't talked.

Michigan is a battleground State, though Biden has an average 7-8% lead this time, down from 10% not long ago. Whitmer is very popular in Michigan, and having a Mid-Westerner on the ticket could also help in the other Swing States in that region. But she's White? That could be the trump card. Gretchen's Lieutenant Governor is Garlin Gilchrist and, if she becomes VP, he will become the only Black Governor in the country.

First session back was v disappointed with how reduced the strength was, but then managed 2x6 DL at 130 today, so it's coming back nicely. Gone full excel mode with this training program to really try and focus on overload and make sure there is progression over the next few months. Just for a bit of balance, bench was 2x6 60 and to full failure, so we embrace the full variance of lockdown.

Numbers in general are still down quite a lot, but luckily the quality/movement/connection seems to have come back quite well, so really pleased with that. Obviously very stiff the first week but feeling pretty good now.
