Back 2 Basics update.

Ok…I have been running Back 2 Basics for 2 full weeks now and am very impressed. This week is my heavy lifting week. Remember, this is for those of us that can only spend 30-45 minutes at the gym.  This is also combining a heavy primary lifts with speed pull secondary lifts followed by accessory lifts.

After the first week, I thought I was going to die I was so sore.  On the 4th day, Squat day, I had such serious DOMS in my quads and lower back that I was not sure I was going to be able to actually go very heavy.  I was wrong.  I hit a rep PR of 325lb x 5.  By the time the second week started I was rested and fairly sore free.

The second week I was missing my last sets of primary lifts by one rep.  Some of the accessory lifts were lagging too so I compensated(instead of 3×8, I did 4×6). I was trying to figure out why I was lagging and the only thing I can think of is I am dropping weight too (less of a fat ass).  Even though I was lagging, I realized I was still repping weight I couldn’t before so I know I am getting stronger.

I am including a new updated Back 2 Basics Template as I changed a bunch of stuff around to accommodate for the limited time at the gym I have. I had to cut a bunch of accessory lifts(ones I thought were important too).  I will keep the old template for when I can have more gym time, I know the stuff I cut will come in handy. 🙂
