    Truckin'. Might get one more week out of triples on bench? Both triples at 285 were really tough.

    Happy New Year! For me - 2021 is going to be the year of the three plate bench and the four plate squat.

    Bench.........250x5x5
    Deadlift.......395x5

    Wednesday 1/6
    Squat.........330x5x3
    Press..........157x5x5
    Power Clean.155x3x5 <--- reset to clean up arm pull

    Friday 1/8
    Squat.........335x5x3
    Bench.........290x3x2 <--- bar came to a dead stop on rep 3 both times
    Press..........174x1x5
    Deadlift.......405x5 <--- back up to pre-injury weight!

    I haven't been sleeping very well, so recovery has been a challenge. It's time to move back to an intermediate pulling schedule and implement light day squats.

    Hey, I wanted to let you know that your novice training log (as well as ajindahl's) were immensely helpful to me. I plagiarized your intro for my log and am going to catch up on the last ~8 weeks or so of progress and idiocy. It's here if you care, but I'm really only posting to say thanks. Looking forward to you crushing your goals this year!

    Default Major Setback - Commence Long Layoff

    Monday 1/25
    Squat.........310x5x3
    Bench.........225x5x5
    Power Clean.135x3x5

    I caught the deadly, deadly virus at the beginning of the month. Starting on 1/8, I felt like shit for about a week and a half, then I felt recovered enough to get back to training. It was a two week layoff in all. This workout was VERY hard; I lost a good amount of strength.

    AND THEN...


    Wednesday 1/27
    Admitted to the hospital with pulmonary embolism in both lungs after I started coughing up blood. I also ended up with a small lung infarction. For some unlucky people, the virus makes our blood prone to clotting. I'll be on blood thinners for about three months, and it will be around two months before I get back to training. Whenever I do get back to training, it will be time to dust off my NLP log for a while until I can call myself an intermediate again. I will pick this log back up after I have returned to training, run through NLP again, and begun weekly programming.



    Hooper - thanks for the encouragement, and I'm glad I could help you get started! I will watch your log with interest. Hold down the fort until I get back!

    Wow, that sucks! At least it sounds like everything is under control and it's just a matter of rest/recovery at this point. I imagine things will progress nicely for you once you're back since you'll have already been there once.

    Good luck, man. We're all "pulling" for you! (Couldn't resist.)
