Terrible night's sleep, but my lift went okay.

Clean and jerk practice (need some instruction/form work here), 45#s

Deadlift 3x300#
Overhead Press 1-1-x 140#, pretty close though.

Assistance work: 30# Vest 5rds: 10xdips, 10xlung, 8x pullup, 8x back extension
kept it pacy but not for time.

Ate a lot of naturally more yesterday, and had my normal pre-workout foods. Had 1 cup cottage cheese+blackberries+a little vanilla whey for sweetening postworkout and feeling some nausea now.

Off day. Might have some slight food poisoning, slept terribly again and feeling more nausea right now. I brought a big can of salmon and salad makings for lunch but I'm afraid if I get sick I'll develop a taste aversion (happened with flounder a while back)

Finally remembered to get on the scale, 151# post BM and after being sick for a few days. I'll take it, trying to add maybe 1#/week (just a slow and steady gain)

Still not 100% better but I gave it a shot this morning. Slept in fits, and felt like crap right when I woke up, better during the workout, terrible right after. It cooled off a lot last night, and as soon as I got in the hot shower, I felt better. I will try lifting in a sweatshirt next time to see if its a temperature regulation issue. Also, I bought some tylenol pm (I think thats what it is) so hopefully will crash hard tonight.

KB Snatch, OHS for warmup

3x5 205# Squat
-stuck with the high bar. Warm up sets really hurt my anterior hip (flexor), but then I started to focus on spreading my knees and it really improved. I have a tendency to look up and get too forward when I strain of late reps.

5x5 215# Bench
-Felt solid, probably too much rest between sets but whatever

5 rds: 10x55# KB Swing, 3-5x HSPU, 10x K2E
Time: 9:26, didn't push it too hard.

For these 5am workouts, I'm eating like this:
wake up: bowl of oatmeal and whey, large cup of coffee
during warmup: 15g dextrose, 10g whey, 5g leucine, 5g creatine, 3g Beta-Alanine
Post Workout: 40g Whey, 5g leucine, 5g creatine, 5g dextrose in milk.
Post-Post workout: either a good meal, or milk sipped for 2 hours.

Went to give blood yesterday afternoon...turns out I have a 101+ fever. Took some ibuprofen PM and slept last night. Taking today off, unless I feel spectacular this afternoon. Hopefully better by tomorrow and I'll get a good day in.

Took 88 mg diphenhydramine and a bunch of acetaminophen last night. Slept ~9.5 hrs which is longer than I have slept in a long time. Body feels much better, but I have serious pressure around the base of my skull and ears, especially when I move vertically. Probably have to pass on lifting today. Plan is to study, watch Germany V Argentina (if I can find a TV) and run some errands... and some active recovery if time allows.

Probably shouldn't have but I started feeling better and went to test my strength. No metcon though.

5x3 170# Front Squat, chest/elbows dropped too much on the last two set. I was out of a cage so it might have been partially a mental thing.

2x135# Overhead Press, pissed about this, hopefully just cause I am sick.

4x8 50# Dips
4x8 30# Vest AB rollouts
3x10 45# Good Morning

Lots of foam rolling

Still not 100%, sinus pressure in my head. Did some recovery stuff at the gym, light kettlebell warmup and lots of foam rolling, hip mobility drills.

Interesting day. Still have the sinus/head pressure.

5x5 progressed up to 85# Power Snatch
5/5/3 210# Squat
5x3 95# Snatch High pull
5x3 135# Incline Bench, Close Grip

Used some of this guys "recession blend" of whey from trueprotein...not bad. Looking at the next few weeks...I am just going to continue coasting until after my MCAT. Hopefully then I'll get the nads to really get stronger.

May have finally kicked my fever, not sure. still have tremendous sinus pressure.

5x5 progression to 130# Power Clean
3x3 135# Overhead Press

4 rds: 10x10kg dips, 5x70g Sumo pulls (trying to hit traps some), 5x40# DB Overhead Press
tried HSPU instead of the DB press...I thought my eyes were going to pop out on the descent (sinus pressure).

I think I want to set some short term goals to hit before my MCAT:
3x5 225# Squat
3x150# Overhead Press
50kg Snatch.
That gives me 3 weeks plus the rest of this week.
