Upright row + clean-grip snatch + back squat + behind the neck press + good morning + row

Notes:
-Wendler 5/3/1 - Week 1, Day 1
-Back to 5/3/1, conservative on the my maxes, didn't want to be so close to stalling like the last time i tried this in Feb
-Pullups - Need to get chest to bar more times, seems more awkward with weighted but really it's the same thing
-TKE's - knee is still bothering me, need to schedule a Sports doc visit possibly
-DB Incline - Part of the DVS variation for Boring But Big, bench light on the press day and press light on the bench day
-Accessory stuff - Trying to keep this low volume but high intensity
-ABZ - The 5 second hold really made a big difference
-Complex D - Surprisingly not as hard as back in Feb. The movement I felt most awkward was the clean grip snatch.

PM

Walk with Connor, saw teenager whose sneakers where thrown into the top of a palm tree, decided to stop an help him try to knock his shoes out with a pole. Ended up stepping into a fire ant nest and getting bit multiple times on my right foot/ankle.

Friday morning to afternoon - somewhat swollen not too bad

Friday night to Saturday morning - gotten way more swollen, losing ablitiy to flex ankle

Saturday afternoon - urgent care due to ankle/foot getting even more swollen and a bit red

Steroids, antibiotics make for a fun weekend....all in all no training since Friday.

I hate fire ants! Sounds like you probably do as well.

Foot is basically back to normal, other than the scabs left from the pustules. I'm coming off the doxcycline 3 days early as I think it's been causing me the extreme nausea in my mornings. Tapering off the prednisone early by 2 days as well.

Glad you are back to normal. Prednisone is a powerful drug be careful on the tapering early.

I need to walk with my KB more. Nice workout.

Fire ants suck. Prednisone is an interesting one. Take it too late in the day and you can forget about sleeping. Never seen anything keep someone awake like that.

Good to see/hear the foot's getting better.
