I've just completed my rehab for a slap tear in my shoulder I got in October. Yikes, talk about discomfort
Since I'm healthy now, I've started my training back up this week, I did a session on Monday, which went pretty well, and will be getting the second one in later this afternoon. As you can imagine I felt a little fatigued early on. All the training I had done before has dwindled considerably.
I'm using bodyweight exercises as my reintroduction to conditioning. I used the Convict Conditioning program before hand and am familiar with how impacting the results can be. Luckily my diet has been the saving grace for keeping the weight off. I've had the chance to meet others with similar injuries during my rehab and all seem to be stressed about how much weight they had put on. It's really challenging to do get in a comfortable cardio session.
The bodyweight routine will let me workout from home
. I'm not a gym rat, and loathe the people who spend their whole day hanging around, doing more chit-chatting that actual workouts. I'm not there to find a date.
I've modified the CC routine to Mon,Wed and Fri splits. For Monday I'm doing full body routines. I was nervous at first when I started the other day, but as soon as I found my stride there wasn't any pain. I was totally conscious of being careful, but all went well.
For Wed -today- I'll be hitting the pushing and leg lift exercises. I plan to let Fridays be about the pulling (assisted pullups for starters) and the mighty squats. If I'm up to it, I might tack on a workout for Saturday too. We'll see.
I can't wait to get back to catch up to where my conditioning was at last year. Before I know it Summer will be here and I'll have to show off my six pack abs. And I can say I that I relied on nothing but bodyweight training and ab workout routines
from home to get an awesome body.
This is going to be be fun.
