    Cuzís log

    11/2/20

    Bench press
    135x5 paused press
    225x5 paused press
    315x3 paused press
    365x1 paused press
    385x1 paused press
    405x1 failed paused press

    Pec deck
    115x10 paused reps
    205x10 paused reps
    295(stack) paused 8 reps failure

    Very unhappy with todays results was really hoping to pause press 405 as a baseline but that didnt happen. Done this no problem in the past i guess being light on the scale doesnít help . Gonna take a rest from bench and come back and try and pause press 395 also get some creatine back in my system and see if that helps any probably wont but worth a shot.

    I started writing a reply but didn't want to jam up this log.
    I will start another thread soon or reply to his cycle thread.

    I will quickly say that...
    The problem with powerlifting programs is that they are generally geared for 20yr olds.
    I believe Cuz is about 35yrs old...
    He would probably need to tone a program down a tad.

    Defintely take creatine. 5-10grams a day.

    Skip 385 next time. You're already warm by then so go straight to 405.

    You are prepping for your first PL meet, right? Have you looked at any of the PL programs? As @TheDeadliftingDog pointed out in another thread, PL training is definitely a different critter.
    Im just cruising on trt right now bro 215-220ish lbs. basically working on form and competition style lifts. Thanks for the support!

    I started powerlifting in my 40s after about 15+ yrs of barely working out.

    Check out your other thread. I laid out my ideas on benching.

    135x5
    225x5
    315x3
    405x3
    495x3
    315x10

    Went in feeling positive but the weight got heavy quick. Working 12 hours and no pwo meal cant help. Stopped at 495, muscles felt weak but grip was fantastic. Felt like i could have held it all night. Just dont have any power i feel, reps are really hard and have to work to get them. Think heavy bench day followed by a heavy pull day means fuckin rest the next. Probably can pull 545 Dog, we will just use that as a max for now

    Squats
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    275x5
    295x5

    Leg extensions
    2 very slow sets at 15 reps
    Felt good

    Arms bar x10
    Preacher curl machine
    35x10
    80x10
    125x6
    Triceps super sets 25x10 35x10 50x12
    Side lats rehab 12.5 x2x10

    Really good workout. Had the gym owner come up and pay me some compliments meant everything considering he is 30 plus year bodybuilder. Really gave me some motivation. Bottoming out this testosterone sucks tho damn, i can tell a huge difference in a 1500 level and a 500 level. Doc appt in 13 days then its game time

    After workout friday i felt unusually tired and was like fuck this is wierd. Thought nothin of it got up saturday mornin felt like i had some sinus congrstion went on to work my 12 hour shift felt some body aches and weakness soreness was still like damn that workout really got me wtf....
    Sunday morning at 3 am woke up drenched in sweat im talking more so than getting out of a pool shivering like fuck i check my temp sure nuff 101.5
    Well fuck I have not had a temp in years knew something was off at this point it took some manual labor to get out of bed once i got moving it wasn’t too bad i drove 30 miles to get tested didnt pay anything out of pocket they called me within 3 hours and let me know. Trying to stay positive man, sucks. Cant get meals down like i need to confined in this fucking 12x12 room i wish now i had worn my mask 24/7 when out in public but its a no win situation in stopping this shit . I pray like crazy i havent infected my family or coworkers.

    From what ive heard as long as I can breath ill be ok. Most people at the plant that have had this have returned to work. There are two guys that have been off for 6 months due to some damage. I cant let that happen

    From what I've read and what my wife tells me lots of hot showers help your lungs get over it faster. 3 or 4 times a day for 15 to 20 minutes as hot as you can stand it. In the ER where she works they recommend it to all covid patients when discharged. We are also in a dry climate but I think its a universal recommendation. Wishing you a speedy recovery man 13 more days and go get tested again then come back even harder than before.

    Today is roughest by far damn these bodyaches are for real you would think the a hardcore bodybuilder wouldn’t be that much affected by the aches and pains but i am. Not quite as tough as i thought hah. I hope this is the eye of the storm if not there may be trouble ahead. Damn going to the bathroom is taxing and its only 10 feet away . Stayin positive tho i have a good caregiver . Be safe everyone

    Just take it easy. A few days here and there is really not a big deal. This is all in your head because you like to train and keep your routine going. You got this!
