Today’s workout is GPP. We are moving the gym to a different warehouse. Everything must go. Farmer walks all day. I’ll have to go to my old gym for about a week while we get situated.

Rest up. Stay hydrated and bomb that vitamin C and fresh-brewed green tea. Also, the Glutamine Kleen recommended absolutely helped me kick my bug, finally.

I’ve been mega dosing vitamin c and colloidal silver. Last night was the hottest fever I’ve ever experienced. My brain felt like it was boiling and simultaneously, my body was freezing. Worst sleep ever. I used to take glutamine daily. I should probably resume that trend for how cheap it is.

True that. Glad it’s not full blown pnemonia. Doc said it’s close. I’ve never had such painful coughs so it scared me into going in.

Thanks Benny. I hope too, the worst part is losing gains made recently. Depressing.
Most likely that is due to feeling like ass. Not going to lose ground that quickly... Maybe a lil CNS, and stuff from being sick, but all easily brought back into play.

Yeah man that is why once it gets in my lungs I don't f with it. I got so bad once because I go into asthmatic bronchitis attacks I missed 2 weeks of work and 6 weeks of gym time from messing up my lungs from it. I don't play anymore. Lungs are jacked, start on inhaler immediately and call doctor. About the only thing besides the flu I go straight to the doctor about now.

Ouch! Yeah that’s scary. I’ve never had any lung inflammation before and it felt like a knife jabbing in when I have to cough, and coughing up nasty goo I must. Not trying to create any scar tissue in me breathers anytime soon.

This. Especially since you train concurrently, you lose exactly zero periodization and because loading is auto regulated you will get back up to speed literally as fast as any program could be possible. There are no arbitrary percentages or week plans to satisfy. You just start lifting again.

Those lungs are no joke eh? Break back in slow or you might bring the choking cough back up with too much effort. Even the pressure created from the valsalva maneuver when bracing can be a lot on the lungs if they were really inflamed.

Totally agree. Also a side effect of prednisone is weaker muscle/tendon strength. I’m thinking a bunch of band work and hypertrophy sets for a week or two to get blood circulating again.

Just being on prednisone for a week shouldnt decrease your tendon strength. Thats more of a chronic use thing. Glad youre feeling better.

Was thinking the same thing and probably with strength decreases as well since cortico-steroids are catabolic, unless it is CNS based strength loss it would probably take a bit longer to drop muscle tissue enough to really kill strength, especially if calories were kept up.

Maybe so lol! But you in the left pic can squat 800. You on the right can only rep 225. Power belly!
Hell he had to squat 500 to get out of a chair there! You are one to punish yourself going into a crawl space after what you went through.

This X2!!!!!
My first wife's Dad was a World Record holding power lifter, and a total DBag criminal, drug and gun dealer that owned a totally nude bar. I thought I was quite the gigolo at the time, I was living off of one of his dancers then met his daughter bartending at the club and was living off of her for a while. Understandably he didn't like me at that point. Then we we ended up getting married. We almost came to blows several times and there was a time when he actually tried to pay some of his bouncers to have my legs broken. SOme of them liked me and warned me off about it. When I found out and went and got all up in his and the bouncers faces which could have demolished me I am sure... Massive guys 6' and built like Johnny Jackson off season... Not sure how nothing went down, other than me being 240 then and very angry... Then even after I got my crap together and took really good care of his daughter we always had that beef. He actually had an open offer to buy her a car and pay for a year of rent if she would leave me which after 7 years she ended up taking because she wanted to get back on drugs and I wanted to live a better life.

Current marriage, her Dad was a total loser to the point she ended up disowning him. He was an ex cop that got kicked off the force and put on probation for putting a gun to one of his officers heads... Once when our son was over there and called my wife saying he wanted to come home. He took the phone from him and threatened to choke the crap out of her and kick my ass if we even tried to come pick him up. I left work picked her up, went home and changed into some fight worthy clothing and went down to whip his ass and get my son. I told his wife to go get my son and he came to the door instead, and I begged him to come outside and get some. He wouldn't even come out the door. He was 5'10 and outweighed me by 30-40 lbs but knew I was gonna wreck him. Needless to say they sent my son out. She hasn't spoken to them in probably 10 years which was still a few years after that. We kept trying to give them a chance to be better people but in the end it was obvious that it was never going to happen. Lucky for me, and her she decided that she would be much better off without them causing her pain.

At least one that you damn sure don't care if it gets ripped off! I have had one ripped off of me while I had a guy in mount position with my legs hooked under him so they couldn't pull me off while I ground and pounded him. He sucker punched me after I was kind enough to catch him mid air and carry away from where he was about to stomp my buddy his friend was beating down. I told him that guy on the ground is my buddy, he started this alone and he is getting his ass whipped alone... you stay out of this like I am and let them handle it like men and we are cool. I put him down and walked away, he came up from behind 10 seconds later and sucker punched me from behind so I decked him, pinned him started pounding him. He grabbed my throat so I hooked my legs under him and started throwing downward elbows with the intention of breaking some ribs... I was lucky, and knew the cop working the place and he gave me a shirt and told me to go wipe the blood off my face and get out of there because if the other police showed up I was definitely going to jail and he couldn't help me. I broke 6 of his ribs, broke his orbital bone, and ruptured his ear drum. I didn't used to be a very nice person if you made me fight. I ran into him like 8 months later and he bought me a beer and apologized for sucker punching me, and told me what all I had broken. Had a permanent knot on his cheek bone from a calcium deposit that grew there. We actually became friends after that. Strange world ain't it? I have a lot of those stories from years of bouncing and just running the streets when I had some we will call them unresolved anger issues... That being said I am a completely different person now. Kids change a lot of things.

Here is my rant.
So I've known my father n law my whole life. My wife and I grew up 9 driveways apart. We were always friends but just hung out with different crowds. Her father had a good government job, but was a full blow 7 day a week alcoholic. Alchohol came first, divorced when my wife was 3. I'm talking spending holidays is the local bars and taking my wife with him as a young child.
We started young. I'm now 39 and have a 19 year old, my wife is 38. So at first everything was cool. We rented a house from him and starting raising our kids. I got some things in order and wanted to rent one of his bigger properties ( actually the house I live in now) . So we did. After 18 months he shows up and says you all have 30 days to get out. He wants to move back in. WTF?? So at this point i have a successful business and money isn't an issue. I'm 21 go buy a 300k home.
Well he doesnt move back in, he rents the house to a military family for top dollar. So I took that as a big fuk you to my family.

Now you have to realize he has been single almost 40 years with a drinking problem and with my wife being there for him, he pretty much sees my wife as his wife. He can commit murder and it would be okay through her eyes.

So then, he starts showing up at my house randomly. 3 bed room house with my family of 5 at that point. So he is just bumming at this point causing problems.

So I lost my business and my home. Wtf am I gonna do? I had enough cash stashed away to make some moves. I made a deal with the devil. I bought a con do in myrtle beach for him to get the fuk away and live in. Same time it's an investment. Then we move back into the bug house until I got thru my financial crisis and find a new job.

So that worked out good for the first 2 years, he stayed there and we maintained up here. I have since purchased the big house. Now is were the major issues occur.

He is back to popping up randomly, and when he does he still thinks the place is his. It's bad bad bad ****, he sits in a recliner all day drinking 12oz buds watching fox 5 news all day. Wont bathe, talks to everyone like dirt, control freak.

I have knocked him out ,twice in my front yard. So he knows at this point that the respect levels are at zero. My wife tries to give him a heads up when I'm gonna be home. It's pretty much if I'm home, he is secluded to the shanny outback until I go to sleep.

Hisnother daughter wont speak to him, my 3 kids can barely stand to be around him. His other 2 grandkids stay away. He has no one except my wife cause of his self inflicted problems. God bless her, because she is definitely daddy's lil girl. We have had all the real talks about the situation, she knows all his flaws but she also knows she is the only one he has. So in leave it alone as long as that fukker stays out of sight, it of mind for me. AND dont touch my ****!!!
