I've always been the former when it comes to training and diet - the plan had to be in place, or there was no point in even going to the gym.
That stops. Now.
Speaking of nutrition and Berardi - I picked up his Precision Nutrition. He does a nice job of basically telling you to keep it simple, follow some basic rules and plan things out. I like the approach, and have been using it since Monday.
On to today's training, the fist session back in quite some time. Instead of coming up with a plan, breaking everything into phases and cycles, etc, I'm just going back to it. I'm going to use the basic WSB/conjugated/whatever you want to call it template - an ME Squat and an ME Bench, a DE Squat and a DE Bench, focusing on whatever is weak to make it strong. For now, I think the DE days may be RE days, since I just need to work on getting jacked, not worry about speed so much. But we'll see. For ME days, I'll keep the main lift for 3 weeks, working up to a 5RM in week one, a 3RM week 2, and a 1RM week 3, then changing the lift and repeating.
Warmup: 5 mins elliptical
This was hard, but not earth shattering. I do know not to go nuts my first day back.

Weak. Unilateral stuff is a huge weakness for me. I need to bring it up, so I'll continue to include it.
