    Last week I didn't lift. I had an abscessed tooth that started on Saturday night and it was quite painful. By the time I got a dentist appointment on Tuesday it was swollen up enough that the side of my face stuck way out. It's all taken care of now and that's good just in case we have a lock-down. I spent the weekend putting together a home office for working remotely. The college that I work for has shut down and I am working on transitioning classes online (I am the IT guy).

    Today was my first day back lifting after tooth trouble which caused my to not eat properly, so a reset was in order. Because of the virus all of my workouts for the foreseeable future will be done at home. The college gym at work will no longer be used.

    Squat 300X5X3 Not bad but felt sore afterwards which usually does not happen.

    Bench was not great today after the week layoff, but it'll come back quick.....I hope! A couple weeks ago I hit this for my 3 sets of 5. My legs were quite sore today after yesterdays squats. I guess old age, a layoff, and not eating because of an abscessed tooth are three things that have a synergistic effect of accelerating losses.

    This past week has been a blur. Almost every waking hour was spent moving our colleges classes to an online format so that we can finish the semester. I am the IT guy for the school and have just one assistant, so it has been a very large task. Many times the biggest challenge is the people. The students catch on fast but an aging faculty is another story! Lots of time and patience required!

    Since my kids are stuck at home I have been taking them outside for some activities to keep them moving. We have been playing basketball, volleyball, running, bike riding.... Archery and shooting will be started soon. These activities are good for my endurance but do have some negative impact on training, specifically recovery. Thursday will now be a light squat day to allow for better recovery. I started that about 2 weeks ago and it is helping. My kids are worth a little slower progress.

    4/10 Friday In Quarantine
    On Tuesday I had contact with a coworker who had contact with someone that tested positive for covid19. As a result I am self-isolating in an apartment by myself for 2 weeks. My mother in law who is 79 lives with us and I don’t want to take any chances. Unfortunately this means that I don’t have access to my home gym. I grabbed a few kettlebells, a dumbbell, and some bands so that I can still do something. If they had taken proper precautions and stayed away from others this mess could have easily been avoided! There are a bunch of people that I work with that are quarantined because of this. All it takes is one person not taking this seriously to cause the virus to spread. Today, Easter Sunday there are a half dozen of us that can't see our families!

    Round 1
    KB Press 35X10 L&R
    KB Swing 35X10
    Lunges with 35#KB X10 L&R
    KB Swing 35X10

    KB Swing 35X10
    One Arm Rows 30# Band X 15 L&R
    Curls 30# Band X 10 L&R
    Triceps Extensions 30# Band X 10 L&R
    KB Swing 35X10

    Round 2
    KB Press 50X8 L&R
    KB Swing 50X10
    Lunges with 50#KB X10 L&R
    KB Swing 50X10
    Push-Ups with 30# Band X10

    Curls 30# Band X 10 L&R
    Triceps Extensions 30# Band X 10 L&R
    KB Swing 50X10

    2 rounds were good enough for the first workout. I did not want to be too sore from all the swings. The goal is to do 3 rounds next time.

    2 - 50# Kettlebells
    1 - Dumbbell that takes 1" plates.
