With being high risk I stopped going to the Gym. I started doing JT’s https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPEAhtSZDkTb0rDGrtaSU7A body weight strength training at home and was killing it and then on 4/11 I pulled my back and on 6/12 I had belly button hernia surgery. About 10 days ago I started back slowly with body weight resistance to failure training and am ramping up now. I took it slow because of the surgery.
I walk 5,000 to 12,000 steps at least 5 days a week. Most days 10,000 (4 miles). I have started sprinting as well 3 or more times a week. I’m trying to get benefit from HIIT.
I miss having a progressive wt set and machines but honestly I think I get a better workout with using my body weight an some rings slung over a swing set. Before I pulled my back I was able to do a push up. Just one but I had never done one in my life before. So that is my next goal to get back to that.
COVID hit me hard emotionally and some dr visits, counseling, some bad meds and now good ones and a lot of meditation and I have hit a new calm (I use the calm app for meditation). My anxiety is gone and I can sleep most nights without any meds.
I have stayed keto. I Stray a little with a an oz of peanuts and the non-starch vegetables that my wife cooks. I eat more chicken than before because of $ but I just cooked 3 lbs of salmon last night and most is gone now.
