    So... I've decided to go with the following, It's probably got some flaws in programming, but for now I just want to do this. I don't have a way to add weight to squats without hurting, so this has to be it. About the splits, idk. I just had to add something and would like to train that a bit. Today is day 4, just to make it easily align with the week.

    I'll need to add some sort of nutritional plan or something, no clue which one yet. Suggestions?
    Day Focus 1 2
    1 Cardio Squats For Reps Splits Routine
    2 Strength Floor Bench Press (DB) (3*5+) Sit-Ups for Reps
    3 Cardio Squats For Reps Splits Routine
    4 Strength Over Head Press (DB) (3*5+) Leg Raises With 2kg (3*max)
    5 Cardio Squats For Reps Splits Routine
    6 Strength Push Up (Plate) (3*5+) Sit-Ups for Reps
    7 Cardio Dance (Because it's fun!)
    Edit:
    The last set OHP was 20, then I just stopped. the weight needs to go up. The physio told me seated dumbbell OHP's should be fine, since I don't have a rack or anything (at home, gyms are still closed).

    Edit 2: the leg raises are lying leg raises btw, so don't worry.

    Edit 3: Leg raises were done using 2 * 1kg ankle weights. I did 9-12-14... Now my back hurts. hm...

    That’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.

    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.

    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 can’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!

    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.

    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!

    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.
