Not a great performance due to a viral upper respiratory infection, but I managed to get through it and to stay away from everyone else. Good thing there were only 6 others in the gym and that there are spray cleaners for us to use. Tomorrow is a recovery day! Yeehaw.

Recovery Day

Rotator cuff exercises: 8 sets of 20 reps/side with green theraband.

PVC shoulder dislocates.

PVC OHS, BS and FS x BW (194# today).

Lots of blueberries, blackberries, cherries, pineapples, strawberries, broccoli, spinach, red bell peppers, bananas and beef today, along with a couple of protein shakes. 2 liters of water today, on top of black coffee for breakfast.

I'll be hitting the sack early tonight and hopefully clear up this viral respiratory junk.

Treadmill Walking x 5minutes

Dynamic Warmup

Back Squat (high bar, bar to touch pins at bottom): 135# x5, 185# x5, 225# x2 (What?), 225# x3, 245# x3.

Good mornings: 135# x8x2.

Out of the groove today, big time. Also worked out early before eating any protein, so that may have played a role as well. Very strange. Anyway, I'm looking forward to an off day and to getting my mind back in what I'm doing.

Dynamic Warmup

Deadlift: 135# x5, 225# x5, 315# x5, 365# x3, 385# x1, 405# x1. Matched PR with the last set, after all those work sets. Progress!!!

Box Jumps: 3 x 34"; 3 x 37" x 4 sets.

Bulgarian DB Split Squat, front leg elevated: 35# x8 x2, each leg.

RDL: 245# x8 x2, 245# x3..... toast.

Seated Calf Raise: 125# x12, 150# x12 x2.

3 rounds for time: 90 seconds walking rest with 30 seconds sprint (230-250ish meters). 6:00 (I walked before and after the first and last sprints, so thats 4 rest periods and 3 working sets).

Great training session today. Tom, our gym owner, thinks I can pull 450# at the meet in March. Now, if I can squat 300# and bench 250# competition style, I'll get a 1000# total. SWEET!!! There is still a lot of work to do, but I am going to battle the iron every training day and recover and eat as best I can for the next 9 weeks.
