    It is a hellacious struggle at the moment, every set is like sprinting a 440 in .50 seconds...you want to fall over and puke when you're done.

    Do you have any intraworkout simple carbs (sipping Gatorade, even candy)?

    Yeah, gummies...

    This fatigue is profound. I could mainline pre-workout and it wouldn't make a dent in the post set fatigue.

    It's just something I'm gonna have to deal with until I acclimate to the treatments. My coach has some experience with people who have undergone radiation therapy. He figures by the end of next week I'll start to "feel better", and then when therapy is over I'll crash again for a month or so.

    I cannot imagine trying to train and compete. There had been a thought that I might try being treated and training for Raw Natls, but we decided not to chance it...for this exact reason.

    It is what it is...

    The way I look at it you're still training for the raw nationals. Just not for this year.

    #kickcancerinthedick reps/sets

    Cycle 3

    HB Paused - 90kg 5*5
    Tempo SBS - 80kg 6*4
    Goblet Squat - 24kg 15*4
    Reverse Fly - #5 10*4
    Cable Fly - 30lbs 10*4

    Coming to grips with the fact that I'm gonna be feeling shitty for a while regardless of the weight on the bar. So sack up, and do more, do better.

    GRRRRRR...

    #kickcancerinthedick reps/sets

    Cycle 3

    Spoto Bench - 70kg 5*5
    Close Grip Bench - 57.5kg 10*3
    Tempo Hi Bar - 80kg 5*5
    Dumbbell Bench - 50lbs 10*4
    Kroc Rows - 80lbs 10*4

    For not hitting up the pre workout, I got through this session nicely.

    After watching just about everyone in my gym compete a few weekends ago, and seeing the last few athletes get ready for the Arnold or Collegiate Nationals, I've set a goal of stepping on the platform in late August. A local meet just got added to the calendar, and if I come out of these cancer treatments in reasonable condition, I want to get back on the platform. Coach agrees, and I'm excited! FUCK CANCER...hmmph!

    Cycle 3

    RDLs - 130kg 8*3
    Deficit Deads - 120kg 5*3
    Wide Grip Larsen Bench - 65kg 6*4
    Press - 45kg 5*5

    A weeks worth of accumulated fatigue from radiation treatments: 9 days down, 19 to go.

    Took a while to get the train in motion, but once we did the lifts went well...the recovery period, well that sucked.
