    Magical recovery

    I'm on a magical quest to recovery!

    In all seriousness, About a month ago I had an injury. The physiotherapist told me recovery will take around 3 months.
    Now I've been trying to exercise again, trying out all sorts of things, but recently it has been difficult to get motivated again. I'm sleeping terrible, and my diet isn't the best either.
    So that is where trusted Darebee comes in: I will be using the Spellbound Program and tracking my sleep cycles to get motivated again. I have decided to track my food rating with a 20 point system.

    I will post the report from the day before, hopefully, every day.

            Notes:
            Thank you for all of the kind words, Fremen, Anek and CarbonaraTamara
            I started hurting in my right shoulder during the last set doing planks, so even though I did finish the last set of lightning bolt I decided to change all plank-like movements to leg-raise type movements for now.
            Which is what I did when doing climbers for increased speed, opting to do alternating leg raises at speed instead.
            Also, the program seems to be having more cardio than I thought it would, although in hindsight it makes sense since no additional weight is involved.
            Does anyone know where I can find the table that compared all of the programs? I can't seem to find it anymore.

                    Are you all right, mate? Without being funny, if what you're doing is not fun, maybe doing a lighter program would be a better start? There's no shame in it! Hugs and motivation to you!

                      G'day Warlock , If you are considering changing programs then click on the Programs tabs and click on the Load Filter button which will give the option to choose type of program/focus of activities/difficulty level. Or just click here. It may take a few false starts until you find something you are comfortable with.

                        Hey there! I just found your recovery thread! Good to see you again!

                        The old table of programs seems to be gone, but as Julian4077 says, the filter comes in handy. Same goes for the workout filter. That filter also has the option to select upperbody and lowerbody workouts. Doing the same workout every day is meh, but from 1602 workouts it must be possible to select a few good ones and create your own program. Light warm-up programs might also work for you too. And of course you can always leave out or replace what you canโ€™t do.

                        The difficulty 1 programs are quite light, but not light on the arms. If your shoulder is acting up, I would not recommend them.

                        Healing vibes!

                          First off: Thank you all for all of the motivation and help.

                          So, yesterday I did Armor I, and after that I looked through the attack spells, but had 0 motivation to do any of them. Today I read your replies, and looked through some of the programs and workouts. Then I saw the "Do 50 pushups in one go" badge AnnieW has and thought by myself: "I once started with just doing daily push-ups, perhaps I should try that one. So without any warm-up I tried to get 50 push-ups. I got 37. Still good, just not 50. So now I have no clue what I want to do. I thought of perhaps alternating a day of running with Push-ups, Squats and Sit-ups, but it'll be raining the next 10 days, so I'm not sure about that. Also the simplicity might be a bit bad, idk. Anyways, I'll update y'all when I know what to do.

                          Edit: did max-squats in a set: 47, so close.
                          Edit 2: did max-sit-ups in a set: 44, it HURTS!!

                          Okay, let me think. ... I'll figure something out.

                          Edit 3: regarding sit-ups I might change those out for leg-raises, I prefer them, this hurts.

                              Thatโ€™s a workout!

                              Allow yourself one day rest (or a considerably lower number of reps) from the push-ups and try again. If you can do 37, you can do 50 in a few days. Alternating with rest/easy days (in push-ups) gives the fastest results.
