No training yesterday, because the whole day was spent moving downtown. Carried everything I own from my apartment down the stairs (heavy stuff) to my new house and then upstairs as well. It was a pretty good workout overall as I was hungry all day.

Well I was going to train today but I am running a fever and having nausea/vomiting/diarrhea with no end in sight. I NEVER ever get sick. What gives? Must be the stress of this move/finances. It has been two years since I have been sick.

Woke up feeling maybe 80% better. Fever had come down but still having abdominal cramps. I decided to try to hit the gym anyways. Weighed in at 202.4 this morning, largely due to dehydration from massive fluid loss all day yesterday along with absorbing little to no nutrients of what i did eat. Had a huge salad with spinach/kale, carrots, fitness bread made into bread crumbs, and homemade avocado dressing along with a banana.

Barbell Deadlifts: (raw, no gloves, belt, chalk, etc)
135x12, 155x12, 225x12, 315x4(thought I could get 6, but busted open a callous on my hand), 335x1

Seated DB Shoulder Press: (felt super weak on these today)
25sx12, 30sx12, 50sx9, 50sx10 (less weight and reps that last time)

Wide grip pull downs: (good form, no jerky stuff)
70x12, 85x12, 100x12, 115x9

Chin up grip pull downs: (same for these)
100x12, 130x12, 140x12, 150x12 (rest pause 10 sec before last 3)

Decided to throw in some squats since I had been out of the gym for three days.

BB Squats:
135x12, 225x12, 315x12 (all felt pretty tough)

Walking weighted lunges:
2 sets of 45 lb plate overhead x 16 steps

Had some cramping during these so i hung it up for the day. Hope to be back to normal in a few days.

Yesterdays workout was eh. Not enough sleep.

BB Squats: (first time doing these in the rack and not smith in a long time)
135x12, 185x12, 225x12, 275x5, 135x10 x 2 sets (jump squats)

My legs were still worn out from DL and squats 48 hours before. I didnt take my extra recovery day inbetween and paid for it.

Incline BB Press: (not on smith as well, trying to get away from that to work accessory muscles as well)
135x10, 135x10, 135x9, 135x10

These were harder than I rememer as well but I also killed my tri's less than 24 hours before.

BB Bent Over Rows:
95x12, 115x12, 145x12, 175x12 with two Rest Pauses

Drop set: 175x5 drop 155x5 drop 135x5 drop 115x5 drop 95x5

DB shrugs:
40sx12, 65sx12, 85sx12, 100sx12, 110sx7

Incline DB Flys:

22.5sx12, 30sx12, 40sx12

Did some sets with the 22.5s and 30s holding the weight at the bottom for 5 seconds on each rep. These were tearing my chest apart and I loved it.

Should be back to 100% on my next workout (saturday) as today is a rest day at work.

Felt very motivated all morning and during my workout due to watching the movie "Warrior". It was so good and Tom Hardy is scary as hell in it. I cant wait to see him as Bane this summer.

I think I had the best workout in recent memory if not ever today.

Romanian DL: (raw, no gloves, straps, belts, chalk, etc)
45x12, 135x12, 185x12, 225x12, 255x12 (two 5-10 sec rest pauses)

Flat Dbell Bench Press:
20sx12, 30sx12, 45sx12, 50sx12, 60sx13 (30 sec rest pause)

Dumbell(2) Bent Over Row:
20sx12, 35sx12, 55sx12, 75sx12 (1 rest pause), 80sx12 (2 rest pauses)

Barbell Cleans: (not power, no dipping to catch weight)
45x12, 95x12, 135x4 (weight flew off because the clips that are supposed to hold the weight on flew off, i guess they are old and dont fit anymore so I went and finished these with dumbells)

Dumbell(2) Cleans:
30sx12, 40sx12, 50sx12 (one rest pause)

Supersetted jump ropes with weighted walking lunges.

First 4 sets were 45 lb plate held overhead x 14 steps each

Last 6 sets were 45 lb dumbell in each hand (90) x 12 steps each

2700 jump ropes total ss with the above lunges.

I wanted to quit when I got to set 6 and 7 but kept going.

Pretty good arm workout today.

Did the standard hammer curls, bench dips, preacher curl, tri pushdown.

Then I did a giant set of skullcrushers, bb curl, into wrist curl. These were agonizing by the time I got to wrist curls. I could barely hold the bar.

Set 1: 30 lb bbell
25 skullcrushers, 25 curls, 25 wrist

Set 2: 40 lb bbell
18 skullcrushers, 18 curls, 18 wrist

Set 3: 50 lb bbell
12 skullcrushers, 12 curls, 12 wrist (2 rp, pure agony at the end)

Set 4: 60 lb barbell
8 skullcrushers, 8 curls, 8 wrist (2 rp, see above)

After I finished these I literally thought my arms were going to explode and I couldnt have gripped a pen if I would have needed to to save my life.

After a few minutes rest and gaining feeling back in my hands I went and did my jump ropes.

3080 jump ropes

I accidentally did an extra set but thats alright.

Had an excellent rest day from the gym yesterday as I am still very sore from the three workouts prior. Also letting my shoulder and elbow heal a little. May end up taking the day off as well today because I am at work til 5 pm doing orientation stuff in the office for my new job and then may be getting tattooed at 6 pm. Should be able to workout again tomorrow.
Nutrition has been on point as of late. Eating mostly beans, tofu, oatmeal, fruit, and veggies. My appetite has been through the roof the last week while still eating 3500-4000 calories. Havent weighed myself in about a week and havent checked my body fat but I feel lighter and stronger.
