This month will be about relearning my body or perhaps I should say learning my new normal. Chemo effects how the muscles recover and I have to learn how quickly they can recover.

I will be using the first couple weeks to discover how many days a week I can do a gym session, how hard I can train and that will determine my training split. On days I can’t do a gym lift my plan will be for an active recovery. Active recoveries will vary but I will always make sure they include squats.

I took an active recovery today. It started with a recovery ride using the peloton app. Then for daily squats today, I did front squats. I kept it simple 3×10 bar only. Now I am guessing I haven’t done front squats in over a year. I will need to start adding those in more if I expect them to improve. I finished with some GHD back extensions(no added weight) and GHD sit ups(no added weight).

I hope everyone worked toward their goals today. Have a fantastic evening. Until next time my friends.

I was diagnosed with two different breast cancers in August 2017. In June 2019 one of them spread to my brain. What started as a fight through breast cancer became a battle living with metastatic disease.
