      Hi.
      As this title suggests I suffered a setback a year ago when an inguinal hernia pushed through my bowel wall on the right-hand side of my groin. If that wasn't bad enough, later that day the left one, which had always threatened to become a problem gave me stabbing pains as well.

      Fast-forward over five months of near screaming agony and two separate operations I was back at work and cautiously ready to think about going back to the gym. Some very light work based on high reps followed and a completely modified programme ditching stuff like squats and deadlifts in favour of resistance and tension training which began to tone my seriously overweight physique.
      Two weeks later the lockdown hit and apart from a little physical activity at my place of work, I couldn't do a thing. I tried to jog but that aggravated the hernias so that was shelved indefinitely. I couldn't get a bike for love nor money so I basically did a few press-ups and that was it.

      Now the gym is open again and I've been reactivating my sessions. In my next post I will detail the kind of thing that I'll be doing, starting with a trio of sessions to get up to speed. I will treat this as a personal diary and I'm not looking for replies as such unless you want to comment - writing a journal merely helps keep me motivated and gives me a new target each week to beat.

      Cheers guys

      As mentioned above, my new routine goes as follows:
      Four sessions fitted in when time permits. On the two upper body sessions I will perform six exercises with an extra two if energy levels allow me to thrash my ever-weakening bod further.

      It’s all tension training as this allows me to pause whilst lifting without dropping the weight between sets, thus ensuring maximum resistance is put upon the muscles. I have already carried out a basic dummy run of the programme using weights that I thought were suitable post-hernia/lockdown. Happily, I exceeded the figures quite easily and seem to have not lost much strength at all. By golly, with almost a year passing since a last proper weights session all that rest must have done me good. Hopefully I will see the belly excess drop gradually and even see some increase in size once more for my 55+ years.

      The jargon I use should be reasonably understandable. The sessions will go something like this, adding weight each time I return to that particular routine.
