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