Not sure if I’m getting enough oxygen to squat or pull but I should try later today if I can get medicated right again.

Gail went to the doctor yesterday thinking she was getting pneumonia from it. I guess it’s just a really bad virus that’s taking up to 8 weeks to disappear. I ain’t taking 2 months off from lifting.

Week 8. Still sick. Was supposed to be 3 sets of 4 for bench. Historically my toughest week. Lost tightness and missed the 4th on the first set so I dropped to triples. Can’t feel too bad. First miss in 36 weeks and I’m sick. Anywhooo, a few extra sets just cause.

Good enough. Can’t peak good today. Next week I’ll fire up my 5th cycle and hopefully be feeling good to peak at the end of it. What a horrible bench session.

But not so bad under the circumstances. And bench does bounce back fast.

Especially when you drop it on your chest really hard.
