    Yeah, I'm coming to grips with the fatigue, and being winded at the end of each set.

    As I was discussing with my coach today, it's nice to have the latitude to come into each session with the ability to dial up or down the intensity based on how I'm feeling.

    If I were locked into a set of numbers or reps, I think I'd be in trouble.

    First Hi Bar work in ages. It's like I forgot how to do the damn things. Other than that, a goodly amount of work and I handled it OK.

    Oh, and my weight is back over 200lbs for the first time since Raw Natls...hurrah!

    #kickcancerinthedick reps/sets

    Cycle 2

    Deadlift - 170kg 5*3
    Wagon Wheel Deadlift - 150kg 5*4

    Bench - 65kg 8*3
    Press - 47.5kg 4*3
    Reverse Fly - 30lbs 10*3
    IYT - 10lbs 10*3

    It was a little heavier than I expected, but the last set felt better than the first...maybe I didn't warm up enough...it's possible.

    My weight has jumped in the last week, about 7 lbs. I'm a hard gainer, so this is quite unexpected. I checked in with Austin, and he informed me that this is to be expected considering the treatment regimen I'm on. Most people experience a gain in fat, and a loss of lean body mass...FML. I'll need to start a food diary, and really dial in my macros. That, and be as diligent as possible with my training.

    Other than that, it was a good session...a lot of fun, as the gym was packed with people getting ready for a local meet in early February.

    True.

    I really hope that I'm an outlier on the fat gain/muscle loss continuum. I realize it's out of my control, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of "losing" what I've worked so hard to obtain.

    Cycle 2

    SBS - 115kg 7*3
    Tempo SBS - 85kg 5*5
    Belt Squat - 75kg 10*4

    Dumbbell Press - 35lbs 10*3
    Pendlay Rows - 80kg 10*3

    Found myself a little lightheaded at the start of the top sets. This has been going on for a few weeks now. My breathing and bracing are fairly on point, so this dizziness is bothersome. Just one more side effect of the treatment regimen.

    Cycle 2

    Bench - 72.5kg 8*3 same weight as last week..I'm tired. The reps were faster though
    Spoto - 62.5kg 8*4
    High Bar Squat - 85kg 10*3 less weight than last week, legs were dead...too much cardio last night

    Dumbbell Incline Bench - 50lbs 10*3
    Pendlay Row - 70kg 10*3

    This was the first session where I had to back off weight on the bar. Lots of stress in my life since Monday. Court proceedings with the Bride yesterday, and I'm staring at the start of radiation treatments tomorrow. Sleep has been virtually non existent. I'm a walking zombie...I can't remember where I parked my car in the morning. Mentally I'm in a fog.

    Deep breaths...deep breaths...
