Geez… about 2 weeks down from influenza. I lost 5# due to lack of eating (there’s my new diet plan – flu!). And all I wanted to do was get back in the gym. Today was finally that day.

I didn’t want to heavily work out because 1. with the cycle layout, it’s easier to start on a Monday, 2. I’m still not 100%, but close(r). All I wanted to do today was get back in the gym and have my body remember what the heck lifting weights is. I opted to do it quasi-deload style. I just hit the 4 main lifts, light wights, 60-90 seconds of rest between sets, and nothing major. Only “complicated” thing was between each bench press set I did a set of band-assisted pull-ups. I figure this is good enough to help my body ease back into things. We’ll see how I feel come Sunday.

On Monday, I’ll start cycle 16 over again. I see no reason to do otherwise, at least at this point.
