Now I don’t normally post. I’ve been more of a reader here for a long time…I dunno, how many more times can you talk about whey protein? I find it hard for me to contribute…anyway, now is my time to rant and get some fuel from fellow T-readers to fire me up for a new round of lifting.
All of my hard work since January has been demolished. On Jan 1 I was 6’1’’ 172. I followed the routines of USCTrojan and Crewpierce to the tee from January until 2 weeks ago, and everything was amazing. By 3 weeks ago, I was 900+ on the big 3 and I was at 189 lb (around 14% bf?). Then I got MONO. It was pretty severe…100+ pills of vicodin, percocet, lidocaine, clindamycin, and 15 LBS LIGHTER, I’m very weak and ready to train. And what’s worse, I STILL can’t train for at a minimum 1 week because apparently my spleen or liver will rupture from the lifting and I will die.
I worked so hard, and now I’m back to square one. I mean this is DEFINITELY not going to stop me, but I feel like this is the only place I can vent where people will “get me.” Share your thoughts, experiences with illness, etc.
