    250 too vertical off chest, good descent, touch, stillness/pause.
    I can work with that.

      Bit of a mixed bag.
      Rushed rest time 2nd set and the 3rd rep the bar got out front.
      Parallel 1st rep 3rd set.
      Early session b/c house guest
      Still feel pretty good about the session overall.

            Last set didn't get trimmed, and i'm not doing it over.

            That's my heaviest 5 triples in one session ever.
            I've tripled more, but not for 5 sets.

                This was the only one i was fairly happy with.
                Two were deeper, but felt shakey on the ascent, the others were borderline depth.
                For singles, this weight should be easy, but today i just felt like i wasn't able to bring the fire as i should.
                Try again friday.

                • Covid deadlifts

                  415X 3,3,3,3

                  Felt like 20 kinds of hell yesterday, but the fever broke, and some advil and a fistfull of caffeine capsules saw me get my pulls in.
                  I did opt for the "lower stress" option for worksets.
                  4 triples instead of 5 sets of 4.

                    Light paused bench
                    160X 6,6,6,6

                    I normally wouldn't count just light bench as a full session.
                    But considering i am drenched through with sweat, it counts today.
                    I dozed on my side for a while, and my nose stopped dripping and i had the energy to unload the bar from yesterday.
                    Going in i thought i'd try just full flat bench because the prospect of arching just seemed so daunting, but i managed my arch.

                    By some miracle, yesterday's deadlifts even happened.
                    I had a window where i felt a lot better than today.
                    I'm more amazed i got this session in.

                    Really hope i'm a lot better by tomorrow for squats.

                        Thank you so much, Cole.
                        Just want to keep the prep on schedule.
                        I have not had bodyaches for several hours, but just popped some more Ibu.
                        I'd say things look promising for squats tomorrow.

                        Two more benadryl left for tonight if i can't get to sleep because of stuffed nose.

                            242.5 X1
                            210 X 5,5 paused
                            210X5 T&G (see description)

                            Due to pretty severe post covid vertigo/nausea/ this moderate intensity session was the most challenging I've ever done.
                            But there is no amount of watching C.T. Fletcher videos that will allow me to squat tomorrow if this continues.
                            Can't squat if i can't balance.

                            Third set was basically me just watching the bar go up and down, somewhat out of body.

                            • Post covid vertigo looks like the thing that is finally going to make me miss a session.
                              I pushed through it yesterday for a moderate intensity bench session.
                              Literally the hardest session i've ever had.

                              No way i can put a heavily loaded bar on my back though if my balance is impaired.
                              If i could just push through, i 100% would.
                              And if later today i feel ok, i'll squat.

                              That the virus affects the cranial nerve is actually kind of scary.
                              Smell and taste still gone, but at least the weird "taste" that was constantly there has subsided greatly.
                              That was starting to be quite sickening.

                                First lifts post covid vertigo.
                                Reverse order. Repeated b/c knees unlocked too soon 1st try.
                                Block ends next week, but I'm playing things by ear.
                                Should feel 100% for the start of the new block after that.
