    Back at it after back injury....

    Trying this yet again. 1st attempt had to have a cardiac ablation. This time got whacked by a forklift. Hopefully this go around lasts a little longer.

    Took 6 weeks and slowly ramped back up. Doing my major lifts in the 4 to 6 rep range and isolation in the 8 to 10 range. Trying to get my diet dialed in, but tends to be difficult as I lost my colon to ulcerative colitis so nutrient absorption is a guessing game.

    Training split:

    Sun - Back / Bi with HIIT Mon - Steady state cardio Tue - Chest / Tri Wed - Back / Bi Thu - Shoulders with HIIT Fri - Legs Sat - Chest / Tri

    Every 2 weeks I take 2 days off for rest. Hitting chest & back twice a week is the only way I see gains...otherwise I stay stagnant.

    Dec 5 : 218 lbs @ 26% BF
    Jan 10: 194 lbs @ 22% BF
    Goal : 200 lbs @ 12% BF
