I've fallen ill. I'm not sure how or why but in the last 24 hours my health has gone from fine to absolute $h1t. I have a fever + cough + cold.

It's gonna be a couple of days before I'm back on my feet. I'm gonna be resting till then.

DEADLIFT Training - Mesocycle 40 Week 1

This went down a few hours ago. I'm still feeling under the weather. The fever and cold have gone away but I do have a lingering cough and I don't think it's gonna go anytime soon. I've been off the antibiotics for 4 days now and I've been eating well. So I decided to go in and train today.

Deadlift Warm-ups:
Mobility Drills
135 x 3
245 x 4
295 x 5
345 x 3
385 x 3
425 x 2

Deadlift Work Sets:
475 x 2
500 x 1
I was being cautious but it went better than I expected.

Deficit Deadlifts:
435 x 3
455 x 2
465 x 1
435 x 3
455 x 1
385 x 5
That last 455x1 may seem out of place..but with the 465 single I pulled which is 10 lbs more than last time and the 435x3 after that (another 10 lbs more than last time), I figured why not? And with the 385 I just wanted to do a backoff set and I ditched the straps. My hands hurt. A lot.

This is from today….

Back Squats:
295 x 3 @ 90%
325 x 1 @ 100%
315 x 1 @ 97%

45 x 6
95 x 6
75 x 6
75 x 6
Eric has been telling me to do Step-Ups for ages but this is the first time I've actually done them. Killer. I still need to get my form down right: not using the other leg to push off, etc…

Core Work:
Front Planks @ BW x 60 seconds
Cable Woodchops @ 50 lbs x 15 reps
Front Plate Squats @ 25 lbs x 10 reps
Side Dumbbell Squats @ 10 lbs x 7 reps

This is from tonight… I had this gnawing feeling that my hip mobility has deteriorated…so I want to focus on Overhead Squats for 2-3 sessions in total (thats all my shoulders can handle for now and I don't want to do them so often - this is just to make sure I'm not worsening).

135 x 3
135 x 3
135 x 3
155 x 1

APT #2 x 10
EliteFTS Black Band + APT #2 x 10
APT #2 x 12
