  • Question for you all (since this seems to be a good catch-all thread): If you happen to get sick, do you wait until you're totally recovered to resume some kind of exercise? Or if, say, you have a cold, you just wait until your energy is stable and you can breathe through your nose?

    I'm probably going to wait until tomorrow anyway, but I think I'll probably be close to 80% at that point, as opposed to the 70% today (I can breathe through one nostril, have a light cough, energy feels okay after getting 10 hrs of sleep last night but not sure how I'll feel by the end of the day). I imagine if I go to CrossFit tomorrow, I just won't push it as much as I might normally.

    • Unless I feel like death and know it'll be pointless, I at least go in and get started, then evaluate. I can usually finish a workout, or at least get most of it done, as long as I'm not just wrecked.

        Curls. Too many to even write. So many curls.

          Nice work, especially on the chinup PR. That was close to my max when I was training weighted pullups more frequently. I did 90x4 recently so I think I might could still get it. I want to increase my reps and grip endurance now for American Ninja Warrior :-)

              I agree with mr A. However I also evaluate whether or not I can infect other people. If I'm hacking and coughing I either stay home or go when no one else is there.

                • I went out and swept a large part of our yard at work, gravel and sand off the asphalt. Big stiff bristle push broom. Jesus you can kill yourself with this thing if you really push it! I can't believe the pump my arms and shoulders have right now. I think if I'm bored and looking to get some exercise in during the day, I'll grab a broom and give 'er outside, even if it doesn't need sweeping!

                  Oh, I guess this is supposed to be actual exercise.

                  Pullups: 10 sets of 4
                  Pushups: 10 sets of 10

                  Baby steps.

                    Baby steps or not that's some good pushup volume.

                    • No one cared about my bench PR so I'll go ahead and post my squat PR. 275. Just a conservative test of 1RMs this week. I know I had 285 in me and maybe a grindy 295 as well. 3-hundo is around the corner!

                      In other news, where's Rev?

                          • Squat day in the heavy week of 5/3/1:

                            5X72,5kg
                            3X80kg
                            6x90kg

                            joker sets:
                            1x95kg
                            1x100kg
                            1x105kg
                            1x110kg

                            first set last: 12x72,5kg

                            Followed by 5x10 in one arm pushup progression and rows, and just some pyramid work on the lat pulldown (to see if I could do it painfree, since I can't really do pullups ATM)

                            I guess the 1x110 is actually an alltime unbelted max for me. Decent for not having done the exersize for a year.

                            • Seeing as no one mentioned anything I will go ahead and say for a gal that's freaking stout!!!! I personally never seen any of the ladies at my gym bench anything beyond the bar with a couple of 5's maybe 10's, and to boot there are lots of dudes who cant even push up 135

                                Energy-wise I feel okay, but I'm still blowing my nose a lot and coughing a bit. I don't think I'm contagious, but I don't fancy having to stop a workout to deal with those symptoms. I'll go to the only class on Friday, at 9:30 AM, and maybe Saturday too .
