Feeling much better, actually slept last night enough that I didn't do an AM workout! minimal snatching, really wanted to focus on my squats today

3x5 215# Squat
felt better with each set, finally went back to a comfortable bar position. I gave A2G high bar a shot the past few lifts, but I don't think my hips can do it. My lower back arches and hip flexors light up in a bad way in order to get those last few inches. Last rep my knees tried to come in but I still comfortably made the lift.

4x5 220# Bench
didn't sweat this much, really focused on the squats today. Not even entirely sure if those sets x reps are right...


3 rds: 5x 60kg snatch pulls (working on building some traps), 20x ab rollouts, 20x burpee

I don't know if its stress about the MCAT or what (I don't think I'm stressed but who knows?), but falling asleep is really a problem these days.

3x3 40kg Clean and Jerk, worked on speed

almost got 3x140# Overhead press, finished with 4x5x135# Push Press

worked up to an ugly 3x310# Deadlift

3x10 45# Lung, 3x10 60# Incline DB Press

Tried to some abs but my back felt spasm-y so I left it at that.

Another shitty night of sleep. It is so frustrating, maybe the worst way I can think of to waste time. I ended up just studying until like 3 am. Drank a quart of whole milk eventually and finally fell asleep.

Lunges + Deads + sitting in a chair all day studying is making me very sore. I may go do some sprints at some point, depending on how fast the day goes.


-----

3x5 220# Bench
Tricept work and KBs, abs made my back feel spasm-y again

Went to rocky top to watch the world cup final. Went ahead and did bench, and worked through some ROM with kettlebells. I may give squats a shot tomorrow, but its going to take a while as I am really feeling those lunges.

Went to a neurologist, got $100 in prescriptions I can't afford and which will likely have no effect (except the eye drops).

3x5 220# Squats

3rds: 15sec glute bridge, 15x80# Leg extension, 15x25# Back Extension, 15x 100# Calf raise
Abs were still a no go

Ate Qdoba after with extra chicken, see if I can sleep tonight.

2x3 40kg Snatch (PR)

1x145# Overhead Press

5rds: 3x60kg Clean, 3x145# Push Press, 12x15# DB L-Raise

3x [10x60kg SLDL,15x60#DB Rows]

Abs

Overhead Press was disappointing, doesn't look like I'll reach that goal before August 1, but everything else was good. Adding some carbs back into the diet peri workout and feeling better.

Got a phone call from the doc today. Titer came back positive for lyme. Just finished my MRI, will be staying the night, getting an LP and IV antibiotics. I just want to get stronger, smarter, and more productive in general. Being in the hospital is not helping me in that endeavor. I am incredibly frustrated tonight.

I know you don't need unasked for advice but I always try to be the voice of reason. Screw getting stronger right now just focus on getting better! You can't mess around with Lyme disease. It is way too serious of a disease. I have a friend that got it and has been struggling with it for 6 weeks. He is older and not in the shape you are, but still don't give it a chance to take you down any more than it already has.

Rest, fluids, food and whatever the doctor ordered should be your goal. Hell if you can eat try and put on some weight while you are on the mend. Fitness is a long term project and even if you are out 2 weeks you are gonna come back strong.

Like I said above sorry for the unasked for advice I just feel really passionate about this kind of thing.
