    I'd be impressed if Patrick Swayze could have made THAT lift!

    In case any of you doubted that Wolf's Disease is, in fact, a real thing:

    On Wednesday morning I was minding my own business at home, soon after waking up, when I broke out into a torrentially gushing nosebleed that just would not stop. In the dry NYC air and even drier indoor heating conditions, I get nosebleeds in the winter often. As do many others. This is annoying AF but not much more than that. And also means I am very used to them and adept at stopping them quickly. This was different. It just wouldn't stop no matter what I did. I eventually made my way to urgent care and then an ENT. Long story short, he cauterized the vessel but I've been on tenterhooks ever since about a relapse. They had no real answers or ideas as to why this once was so difficult to stop.

    So I haven't trained since Tuesday, and have essentially lost another week. I might be able to train this coming week but am nervous about it. This is the absolute worst start to a meet prep in history, and yet further proof that The Barbell Gods hate me.

    First off, sorry to hear about your latest struggle - I feel for ya. Damn but that sucks.

    But holy shit man, you'd better not travel through the upper tundra I mean midwest, such as MN, in the winter. You'd likely turn into an extremely large piece of jerky instantaneously.

    Geez, dude. Have you been on NSAID's recently? You need a humidifier (or a better one) too.

    Returned to training today with mixed effects.
    GOOD: Nose didn't bleed at all. Didn't die.
    BAD: Back tweak still present - better than before, but kinda feels like squats re-aggravated it. Elbows hurt again after squatting.

    Squat - belt +SBD sleeves + stiff SBD wraps
    135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x5, 355x5, 365x5x2 @6
    Notes: 365 was easy but stayed there because of back. Might've been smarter to stop after 355. Guess we'll see. Knees were hurting today - still hurt a lot 6 hours later. Elbows hurt afterwards, despite bent wrists. I do still tend to want to keep my elbows up somewhat, but they're up less when they're up and some reps are dropped - yet the elbow pain still comes right back. That said, it is less than it was after squats previously. Though that might just be because of the low volume and light weight of this workout. Who even knows anymore.

    365x5 on IG

    Strict Press - belt + rogue wraps
    95x5, 135x5, 155x5, 170x5, 180x5, 190x5 @7.5, 200x3 @7.5, 210x2 @8, 220x1 @8.5, 185x5 @7.5
    Notes: Did strict presses because the initial reach bothered my back last time, and I had just seemingly aggravated it again squatting so didn't want to piss it off further. Before I switched to the press 2.0 as my base (with 1.5 for longer sets), my best triple was 200. Now I did 200x3 @7 strict press, after losing a bunch of blood, and having barely trained at all for the last 5 weeks. Press 2.0 is all just momentum cheating though, everyone knows it.

    Seems like I did re-aggravate my back tweak worse than it initially was so currently fucked in the squat and DL department. Hopefully I'll be able to Press 2.0 again soon, at least.

    Bench Press
    135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 255x5, 275x5, 295x5, 315x5, 330x5 @7, 345x3 @7, 355x2 @8, 315x5 @7.5
    Notes: They started feeling a little slower at 275 but that was in my head. Elbows felt ok till 330, then the tweakiness came in, and increased as the bar got heavier.

    Bench Press on IG (330x5, 345x3, 355x2)

    Hang in there, Wolf. Sorry you have had so much trouble but you know how to manage it. Sucks.
