A combination of Prilepin's Table, Boris Sheiko's ideas on volume, and Westside Training.
As of now I only have one set of bands. I hope to gain access to a Westside gym after I graduate so I can incorporate a lot more Westside training into my routines.
I've always known I was depressed. In high school I used to joke about it all the time never realizing the consequences of not getting help. My family is very old school and has a negative view on getting help from psycologists and psychiatrists. It was hard for me to reach out and actually get help but with the help of a really close friend I was able to do so.
My entire 20s have been so repetitive its frustrating, nauseating, and depressing. I've spent the majority of the last 10 years in my room or seriously doing absolutely nothing. I've ****ed up every relationship I had pushing away family and friends. I've been seeing both a psychologist and a psychiatrist but I have decided to come off my meds, Lexapro. It's supposed to help with depression but how the hell is it suppose to help if it kills your libido???
Anyway, my problem with working out is I get too obsessive with it and over train. When I was younger it seems like exercising was able to keep my depression in check however at times I get too obsessive and all I can think about is training. Sometimes if I leave my room its only to train and then I come back home. I've been putting too much emphasis on exercising, specifically weight training. It's important for me to do something everyday but I need to keep it in check and do it early in the day and then get out and do what I have to do.
My hope is that with the program I have set up I can workout almost everyday doing something while not overtraining. I hope to keep to an early schedule and go to class everyday like I'm suppose to; I've been so close to graduating for the past 2 years now its pathetic.
Alright enough babbling, my program starts today and I'll be heading to the gym in a few. The program I have set up is supposed to last about 7 months about the time I'm suppose to graduate so wish me luck and here we go...........
