I'm currently 5'11", 181 Lbs.
During normal training weeks I'm doing 4 days a week. Each workout uses 1 straight set compound lift and then 2/3 assistance exercises for the muscle group. Usually as:
4x8 or 4x6 for the compound.
4x10,8,8,6 or variations thereof for assistance.
During the deload week I usually keep the rep scheme the same and lighten the weight to something I can lift for 15. I try to rest/eat for that week as much as possible.
Both deload weeks that I got sick I had been training up at college and then came home for spring/summer break (in this specific case summer break). My planning worked out that those weeks back coincided with a deload.
First time this happened I had vomiting, cold sweats, fever of 104, and severe cough.
This time I have fever and phlegm but I feel like I am on the brink of having all hell break loose again.
Let me know if there's any other info I should give?
Oh and washing hands/face is -not- a problem hahaha.
I'm keeping my weight relatively stable at the moment, trying to stay in the 181 class.
