    Retraining Program Outline
    • This month im gonna increase my lifts linearly at 5kg for sets of 5 a workout on lowerbody and 2.5kg for upperbody
    • plan for lower body retraining is to squat 1 heavy set, 1 medium set, 1 light set (daily or every other day, will try daily first)
    • for upper body its bench 1 heavy, 1 medium and one light (done daily or every other day)

    no i dont know what im doing but without proper guidance im just going to freestyle it

    -edit-

    Turns out i didnt pull this program out of my ass. it's actually the exact same workout as Pavel's Power to the People. Basically you have two lifts in a workout: one upperbody and one lowerbody. you repeat the workout up to 5 times a week (ie mon-fri), and it involves one heavy set, and one set that is 90% of that first one. Which is similar to what i came up with. so i'm gonna stick with it, cause if pavel says it's legit, that's good enough for me.

    Really struggling to recover following the conditioning day. Stopped the workout at warming up with 100 after the first rep. Just too heavy.

    I don't get it. You stopped the workout because it felt heavy? Are you injured? Your log is littered with stoppages like this. Mental toughness...

    What do you want to know? Are you looking to gloat? I hit my goals. I weigh 92.8kg (under 205lb!) this morning (and will probably be sub 92 by January) and i've squatted ~140 for sets of 5. I'm probably about -3 kg away from looking good and being fit. Not bad from someone who started the year weighing over 110kg and weak. I'm actually lighter now than I was before I picked up a barbell while being much stronger. Think i've done ok.
