Have sniffles / cough etc. but energy level seemed fine so went to gym. Mistake.

Did some decline BP and Deadlift and basically felt like I was moving anvils with medium weights. Put in some reasonable work but nothing worthy of noting specifically.

15 mins elpitical and went home. Will rest tomorrow.

I should have smashed this PR but energy level has been crap since getting sick. Very frustrating

24 mins eliptical. Called it a night.

I've got something lagging from my illness last week that is frustrating the hell out of me. My energy level just drops off a cliff at the gym, leading to me feeling exhausted pretty quickly.

Press: up to 155x5,4,3, 135x5

Alternating Pull-ups / chin-ups / dips. Dips wee 11-10-10 or so; pulls not worth noting.

Eliptical 20 mins

Wed Apr 20
Bowling

Thu Apr 21
Energy level seemed OK but I had some soreness. Went to the gym anyway against my better judgment.

Press: Up to 155x4,3,2, 135x5, 115x4

Started to do some DB rows but they felt like anvils. Was wiped so I cut my losses and walked out. Got to get better and letting myself rest when I need it.

Energy level much better today. I guess bailing early at the gym last night and eating plenty paid off.

DL: worked up to 395x5 (PR!!), 345x5, 295x5
Still think I had a little bit more in my on the big lift. Maybe could have hit 405x5. Felt beastly for whatever reason.

DB Rows (R/L): Up to 130x5,4, 120x5

Curlzzz: 85x10

Eliptical 25 mins. Couldn't run because of all the hit to lower back during the DL's.


Nothing to erase the stresses of a horrible day and week across the board than to hit a PR on Friday!

Rest

Mon Apr 25
Went earlier and did not have the decline BP available, so went flat. Shoulders did not bother me.

BP: Worked up to 225x2, 215x4,5,4, 185x7 or 8

DB Snatches (R/L): Up to 100x3,2, 95x2
These felt exhausting after the work on BP tonight

Dips: 8x3

Some treadmill work that was pretty lackluster. Meh on the night, although I guess that is technically a flat bench PR.
