Well my first couple planned sessions since the meet on April 25th were a no go.
I planned to train on Wednesday April 29th, but just as I was getting ready to head out to the garage (about 11pm) one of the kids started to cry. When I went to check on her I asked what was wrong and rather than answer, she puked on me. Thanks. So I spend till about 2am bathing her, cleaning myself up, doing laundry, taking the bed off the top bunk (it had to be the top bunk), making a bed on the floor, etc…
Then Thursday I was all set to go train (shoes on, finishing a coffee) and GUUURRRGGGLLLEEE! WTF was that, is the plumping backing up? Well sort of, only it was my plumbing! So I spent the night in the bathroom, rather than the garage. On a positive note, if I hadn’t had that last cup of coffee, I would have been in the middle of my squats by that time. And that may not have been good.
So my first actual training session back was Sunday May 4/09 (everything in lbs)
Still not feeling great, but good enough.
1 x 5 x 115
1 x 5 x 125
1 x 5 x 135

1 x 3 x 135
1 x 3 x 225
1 x 3 x 275
2 x 5 x 315

Planned on going heavier, but just not feeling up to it yet.
5 x 5 x 135
Never tried these before so I went light. I’ll slowly work up in weight as I get more accustomed to the movement.
Standing Band-assisted Ab crunches
I worked these in between the Pendley Rows sets to save time.
Mental note: Next time I’m recovering from a stomach flu, I will not have a foot long Philly cheese steak sandwich as my first meal other than toast in three days, especially if I’m intending to be doing any type of row or ab movement. Rep…burp…rep…burp…
