Coming back from a layoff
So, I haven't done weights since the second week of febuary.
A pulled abdominal muscle and, for the last week, the flu, have take alot out of me.
So, yesterday ( Wednesday) I decide to test my max lifts.
I always do that when I am going to start/re-start a strength training program.
I was "annoyed" with the results.
I expected to lose some strength, but I guess the flu took ALOT out of me ( I am STILL on antibiotics).
Incline chest-250lbs for 2 reps
Deadlift-320lbs for 2 reps
Overhead press-160lbs for 2 reps
Squat-360lbs for 2 reps
Dips-bodyweight (165lbs) + 95lbs for 2 reps
Chins-BW + 70lbs for 2 reps
I was slightly miffed at those values, but can't be helped.
I lost 5 lbs with this flu, although my abs look better :)
The MA is ok, just lost some endurance, but I get that back easliy.
I hate being sick.
yeah, I know man, one of the hardest things is to maintain size and strength when sick.
i might try to pack on some muscle after tax season
i am about 6'3", 185 and pretty strong for my size, but i would like to add about 15 lbs
