Squat 365 x 5,5,6 (only supposed to do 3x5. thought I would do 8-10 on the last set based on how the 2nd set felt, but my form broke completely the fuck down on rep 6 of the last set so i shut it down)
Front squat up to 275x3
Ab pulldowns 3x10
jogged 3/10 of a mile and did 6 min on concept 2 rower
--Pretty shitty day today. The squats are starting to feel hard. I maybe could have done 20 lbs more for 3x5 today and that would have been it. I'll never understand how I can squat only mid 4's when I pull low-mid 6's, especially given that I have the consummate squatter/bencher, not the deadlifter build.
Bench up to 335x1 (10 lb PR), 225x12
Pullups bwx5, bw+35 2x6, bwx5
6 min on concept 2 rower

Deadlift 550x3 (PR, easy, had 1 rep left in the tank for sure)
Snatch grip deadlift 225x5, 315x5, 405x5
Box Jumps 5x3
1 mile bike ride
Felt great today. This is the first time I've pulled from the floor in over a year. I just went for a 5 lb PR on triples, and it was terribly fucking easy. Def had 4 reps in the tank with 550. Next time I pull I'll likely either rep out with 550 or do 560x3.
Squat 370x5,5,7 (1-2 reps in tank on last set)
Push press 250x3, 225x6 (good bit left in the tank on both sets)
jogged 1/3 mile and did 6 min on concept 2 rower
--Squats felt better than last week, still not good, though. Just not a squatter. But push presses felt very good. Overall, not good, not bad today.
3/8 Start of a new bench cycle (w/ the exception of next week, which will be a deload since I have a strongman contest on 3/17)
Bench 270x3,3,3,3,3,3,6 (1 rep left in the tank)
Pullups bwx5, bw+40 2x6, bwx5
Db curls 50 3x6
Ran 1/3 mile
--Pretty good day today once I got warmed up, which took forever.
Paused front squat up to 330x1
High snatch pulls 135x3, 155x3, 175x3
DB row 120x20
Box Jumps 7x2
Paused front squats felt good today. Dialing it back some since the contest is next Sat.
Had surgery for a perirectal abscess. Been out. Pain.
Squat 375 3x5 (hard as fuck after being in the hospital last week and losing so much weight)
Press 135x5,5,10 (easy)
--That's it. Obviously not much energy today, but I did what I had planned for last week on the squat and didn't even deload. I know from experience with these abscess surgeries that there is absolutely no point in dicking around and not training for 3-6 weeks like most doctors suggest. To get back in and squat 1 week after surgery made me feel better.

Holy Mackerel Kyle, you had a great run going before your hospitol run. I'm sure you'll be back in form and feeling good and strong again soon!
Runs caused by Amoxicillin is nasty stuff. Had the same problem with it once and it was......surprising....when I least expected it!
Kyle - Hope you are feeling back to 100% soon. Your lifts are already strong but I think you getting back to the gym right away shows just how strong you really are. Good luck man!
Thanks, fellas. I'm sure I'll be back to full strength in another week or two.
