I’m so very sorry for the loss of your FIL bud. My thoughts are with you and your family. This virus is an extremely unpredictable thing....I am happy to hear that you and the rest of the family have recovered.

I’m sorry to hear all of this, B. I wish your family love and solace in this time of grief and recovery. Sounds like there’s a lot of rebuilding, and more that can’t be rebuilt - I will pray for your father-in-law and your family.

Appreciate it fellas.

I consider myself a “fixer” so when I see how broken my wife and daughter (my FIL watched my daughter for us until she went to kindergarten) are and there’s nothing you can physically do to “fix” it, it’s tough.

Morning workouts have gotten easier tho, after consistently going lol

Bro, if you’re slacking then I flat out quit lifting lol
LOL you are too kind sir!
With how much I have going on health wise and also a slight flare up in my shoulder it has really backtracked my progress, workouts, and day to day activity. Just taking it one step at a time!

Yeesh.

Took yesterday and will take today off. Ripped out 1600sqft carpet/pad and still have to lay 500sqft of flooring in the entry, kitchen and half bath. I’ve only laid carpet/pad once so we’ve hired that out lol but hardwood is my specialty (tile being next).

Can say one thing, I don’t miss manual labor when I was with the union these old bones can’t hack it!

My rhomboids, and low back is rekt btw.

Anyone wanna come help? (Still have the basement I’m finishing too )

That sounds awful. And I have been tired just from having the inside of the house painted! That was just cleaning up clutter, moving furniture before and after, then replacing the water line to the fridge that broke when we pulled it out, cleaning, and now hanging pictures. Which has kept me pretty busy, but not like that.

If it’s any consolation, I will be spending hours raking and bagging leaves today and I bet more picture hanging. And cleaning for the baby shower tomorrow.

Back at it.

Pubic adjustment
Stir the pot
Oblique plank
Bird dogs

Lower
Squat
185x5 @8

SLDL
125x3x5

Single leg standing hamstring curl
3x amap

45 degree back ext 3x amap

Ab wheel
3x amap

So, I’ve decided to pull from Texas method.. again. However, it’s going to still be a slow process (obviously, to refrain from re aggravating my back). My single sets of 5 will be @8 and my volume days will be 90% of that set for 5x5.

Also, I’ve fallen in love with throwing alfalfa and mung beans into my meals. Aldi has been stocking these chicken breast that are cilantro lime (very flavorful) so what I do is take 5oz of the chicken and put it on my bed of rice (mixed with black beans) and add 1/4c - 1/3c alfalfa. LOVE IT.

My dinner is chopped steak with the same rice/black bean and add mung beans. Usually top with with Buffalo sauce or rice vinegar.

As always, take care!

God bless!

The Rogue SSB is a mean maiden. Not posh like the EliteFTS. You have been warned!
Yeah, I went to move the SSB out of the rack I use and that sucker was heavy lol looked it up and she’s 70lb (need to remember that come Friday lol)

I’ll get to 50 reps some day on my Larsen press lol Paul makes things up as volume but I know his real intention... the pump . Imma ride my @8 sets of 5 until I can’t. I’ll probably deload my fifth or sixth week depending on if aches or pains show up (recoverability is low) if not, then I’ll stretch it the full six weeks!

As always take care!

Feel like crud. Yesterday I drank two protein shakes and ate a cup of rice and 6oz burger meat. Drank over 100oz of water. General malaise, HORRID indigestion and a foggy headspace. Woke up today feeling the same way, obviously didn’t go to the gym this morning, I slept in.

Probably won’t lift until Monday. Going to keep hammering liquids and eat bland meals if I can. Well, I had an English muffin and two eggs this morning so there’s that.

Feel better homie. If salt doesn’t worsen the gut, get some in. Will help you feel better.
