Chest and arms:

Nice pump today but still weak, no suprise.
Felt good today and not winded from the workout. Just eager to get my strength back which will take some time.

To make up some lost time, I will stick with the 3 day split before doing my powerlifting routine.

Back from Disney, and I need another vacation. We had a great time, but I never walked so much in my life! As far as my illness, I do have an xray planned for Monday.

Lower body:

Pretty much did the same lower body workout I attempted a week and half ago, and what a change. Even though I was still week, the energy was up and did more weight. After this weekend, I plan on starting I new split with a powerlifting concentration.

Leg Ext:
Leg Press
Leg Curl
Stiff leg bar
calf work

I plan on hitting chest and arms tomorrow.

Note: I started the following supps again aftera a break from them.
USP Labs AP, Cissus and test booster. Bringing back Primaforce Creatine.

I went to the doctor today, and there is still some crackling going on in the lung so I will have another x ray when I come back from my trip. She did say its normal to still feel tired and still be a little congested.
No real concerns, yet, just to give it time to feel better.

I tried working out early this week, and it was tough. I have never not worked
out this long. Hopefully I will hit it when we get back from my trips and get back on track.

This break will be a just about a full month of not training!

Rest Day:

Nothing exciting to report.

Mowed the lawn and did some clean up in the yard.

Plan on doing lower body tomorrow as long as things are cool with the doctor app.
I still feel uncomfortable on the left side. I either strain the muscles from all the coughing I did or still have some congestion?

I weighed myself for the first time in a long time, and I am down to 165, from 170.
The funny thing is, I am hungry all the time!

Upper body:

Well, I just did 3 sets for each exercise and still at very light weight. It did feel good to get the blood flowing, but was tired. I am very eager to feel 100 percent and hit it hard. But I just need to listen to my body for now.

On a side note, I will be going to the doctor for a follow up.

Lat pulldown wide
Bent over row
Flat bench press
In Db press
Side lateral
Barbell curl
Tricep pressdown
10 min light cool down.

Well, I worked out today and boy, I am week, and I was winded. Being away for over 2 weeks and having the pneumonia does take a toll on the body.

I didnt even keep track of the weights as I kept it simple and went through the motion to get the blood flowing.
I will be doing lower and upper body 2 x this week.
And then I will be away next week in Disney, hoping to get a couple of workouts in.
When I get home from the vaca, it will be time to do a mini cut/clean up phase.


Leg Ext
Leg Press
Leg Curl
Stiff Leg Bar
Calf work
7 min light cardio.

Feeling better each day, but still very tired.
Today was the first day I actually was thinking about working out and missing it.
Hoping to get back early next week.

And I am looking forward to geting out to the posing class this Sunday.

Well here is the update.

The nasty bug I had lead to much worse.
I traveled out Friday to to set up the OCB show I was co promoting.
Well, as the night went on I felt worse and was buring up. The morning of the show, I could not move out of bed period. I was useless so I had my wife pick me up at the hotel was the show was taking place. She had to wheel chair me out, because there was no strength to even stand. So, my wife took me straight to the hospital.
I had a temp of 105! Took a chest xray, and told me I have the pneumonia. Give me an IV to re hydrate and to give me a first dose of antibiotics.

Feeling better today, but still very tired with a bad cough.

I plan on taking the week off.
