Yes, Chris is back... Yeahhhh!!! Glad to hear you are back in the swing of things and feeling better bro, don't worry, your body will get back way faster than you think, it's still just a little messed up from being sick, you'll see!Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. I am feeling much better today, must have been food related or something. Yesterday sucked but it was only a minor road bump. I was able to lift today and was happily still able to improve on my lifts.
I definitely decided to take a break from the dead lift goal for a little bit. I want to give my shoulders a little time off from holding all that weight for that many reps. So now I am doing Widow Makers with Squats after I my legs on the Leg Press. I figure I will do this for a while then switch back to deads for a while, kind of swap them out see if it aids my progress in my higher rep goals on deads and squats.
Leg Press - 315x12, 585x8, 885x12, 885x12 - Up 10 lbs from last set last time and did it for 2 sets. Not bad increase after being ill yesterday.
Squats - W.U. 135x12, W.M. 235x20 - Up 10 lbs from last time, and may have actually been easier than last time too.
Calf Press - 270x12, 330x12 - Just maintaining the bulls.
Leg Abductions - 100x15, 110x15 - doing these for some balance on the outer thigh, the adductors get hit hard on squats and leg press so no need to work them seperately right now.
Leg and Hip Stretches in the sauna
Oh yeah, so this is a little crazy, I weighed myself this morning expecting to be the same or lower than Saturday morning but even after being sick yesterday I was 208 on the scale this morning. I have eaten pretty clean most of this weekend and yesterday I got in maybe 1000 calories but was 208 today. Kind of crazy, however I feel like I am gaining kind of wet weight. Not too much so but I am definitely holding more water even with the which I added back in. I also added in Naringen to increase the bio-availability of the 1-Andro starting last week. Hoping this addition will keep more of the active hormone in my system longer.
With me being 208 after a relatively clean weekend I am thinking I may have to look at my diet. Eating for recomp is adding a lot of mass but not really leaning me out much. It could definitely be water which is more likely since I haven't giiven myself enough cals to gain fat. I am giving it until the end of this week which is the halfway point if not looking leaner then I will drop cals to more of a cutting range.
Sides from being sick yesterday - EXTREME HUNGER RIGHT NOW, waiting for noon is gonna be rough.
