    Ry's road to redemption.


    May as well as start a training log here. Getting some feedback is always a good thing and it helps me believe I am a human after all this damn dieting.

    Little bit of background. I was my biggest and strongest ever about 2 months ago, or Early October. I was 242 and feeling great. Then I started to feel like I was getting the flu for a day then the next day I wake up in the middle of the night and can't breathe and have lots of chest pressure. To make a long story short, I was rushed into ER and spent 4 days in the hospital. I contracted a virus that caused inflammation around the pericardium and lead to a mild heart attack. Then the virus caused some massive ulcers and swollen throat (couldnt eat at all) and I ended up losing tons of weight down to 212 pounds!

    Fast track to now, I am back up to 234 and feeling almost back to where I was. I am only bulking for a couple more weeks then I am starting a contest prep for an April 7th show. Back in October I was hoping to start cutting around 250-255, but I guess sh!t happens and I can only do the best I can.

    What I want to accomplish:
    CHEST!!!- my chest is my weakest body part and I want to bring it up.
    Arms- I need a bit larger arms as I am built lanky and the long arms makes them look smaller.
    Strength everywhere.

    Training right now is 4 days a week.
    Best lifts post sickness:
    Squat: 385 for 5
    Deads: 500 for 5
    Bench: 235 for 5 ()

    Legs and arms, last sets.

    Squat: just below parrallel
    405 x 3, wraps and belt

    Leg press: Cybex leg sled type
    830 x 9

    Knee ext:
    2/2 TUT, 165 x 12 (burned like WOAH!)

    Barbell curls over a preacher bench flipped around so upper arm is vertical.
    90 x 10 rest paused, 5

    JM presses:
    95 x 20 (light so added weight) 115 x 8

    Fried my calves on the leg sled doing some fast burning reps then slow reps with long stretch and long peak contraction holds.

    walked on the treadmill after.


    NOTE: I am taking some time off. My body needs it. I am tired all the time and its like I have trouble getting to sleep sometimes..also my lower back feels pumped last few days....better to take time off now before I lose some strength and really overtrain.

    Just did cardio today but I weighed in at 223.5 so my weight is finally starting to come down again after starting AP. Also threw DCP in the mix last Friday when I weighed in at 225.5.

    Ryno- out!
