The plan was not to do a light day at all. About the time I get to 225 warm up I normally slip on my belt and wrist wraps. Today I notice my wraps were missing from my bag. I searched several times, but I could not find them. The kid at the front desk and I looked through the lost and found with no luck. I’m guessing I set them down last week and left them. Someone then walked off with them. Of course I have a slight case of OCD, so I was thrown off. I went lighter than I was figuring. It’s probably needed anyway.

I like pressing against the band. I think it provides strength off the chest.

I went home for the handstand push-ups. Biker is the man. He said to stay with them and you will get stronger. I still did only two, but I was higher up the wall and much deeper. I still fell over after two, but it was much stronger.

Now to order new wraps…

Not sure what you are looking for wrap wise. I have a stiff set of elite FTS wraps that I only used twice because I prefer softer wrist wraps.

Be glad to mail them to you if you want them.


#925

Thanks Dave. I ordered a new set from Anderson. My previous ones were Inzer. I liked them, but I probably needed new ones anyway. Whoever took them have a set of worn and dirty wraps. Thanks again.

So I’ve been pretty sick the past few days. In fact yesterday I just laid around. Today I was going to give deadlifts a try. I arrived at the gym, and came to my senses. My head is still pounding, and my sinuses are pretty stuffed.

I did some light cardio and worked on some core. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.


#928

Hate bugs, yes I’m a virus hater. Feel better my friend.

Today is the first day I have been out of the house in four days. The flu bug has kicked my ass. As I walked out of the house my wife yelled, “Bill you’re crazy.” She does not understand the need to get back to work. She was kind of right, my stomach is still flipping and flopping. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be closer to 100%. Since I did not feel right still, I went light.

Somehow I’ll have to find a way to choke down some chicken wings for the Super Bowl. I’m picking Atlanta. There is no way I can root for the evil empire that is New England.


#930

Sorry, but this made me laugh a bit; we’ve all been there. Rest up, and enjoy the weight cut :slight_smile:


#931

Thanks. I always say I don’t need a flu shot, because I never get sick. That was until this year. It just about kicked my ass.

2/6/17

Deficit Deadlift:
135 x 10, 185 x 3, 225 x 2, 275 x 1, 325 x 1, 390 x 3, 350 x 3, 335 x 5

I then used show blower for an hour and a half.

I still do not feel 100%, but it’s coming back. I think the deficit deads are really going to help in the long run.


#933

I think lifting helps strengthen immune systems.


#934

Maybe. If so I should have lifted more perhaps. I still don’t think I’ll get the shot next year.

Good to see you doing strong dead work. Damn flu, so annoying. I never get the shot. I get sick now and then but thems the breaks.

I’m better now, but last week sucked.

I had to get a slight bump about three quarters up on the second rep of 365. Considering how I felt last week at this time, I’m ok with it. I’ll just repeat next week. GV got me thinking about using 25 pound plates for Svend presses. I was really impressed. It is much more challenging since the larger plates are harder to hold.

Just some light arm work today. It’s also my 46th birthday. I must say I think my father was much older at 46 than I feel (if that makes sense). I feel great and young. I had a physical last month and despite having a little gut, my doctor said I was in great shape. In fact she said I didn’t need any blood work, because it was a waist of time.
