I always find that taking 2-3 months out of the year, putting a cap on my max weights, and working on volume progression (increasing reps, lowering rest times, etc) really seems to motivate me and renew my "vigor" for this sport.

Besides giving the joints a break, your body actually responds to the difference and you still make progress.

Unfortunately, I developed bronchitis and an ear infection last Saturday after dodging everyone at work who had been dropping like flies. So I haven't been to the gym in almost 6 days. It's killing me.

But as evident by the time of this post, I'm also haven't been sleeping the last few nights. I've spent it up watching TV and reading just trying to control the cough. I rarely get sick.....and guys this shit hit me like a train.

I was just getting full swing into my diet, starting to see some nice changes, and this happens. Now I feel "soft", and I look in the mirror and feel like I'm wasting away because I have no appetite.

I can't wait to get back at it!

Hang in there, get as much rest as you can. Stay hydrated.

You'll be on the other side of this before you know it.

Yeah Iím in one of those 2-3 month phases myself. Squatting, deadlifting, everything is staying under 75-80% 1RM and just going for high rep sets 8-12. All about longevity.

Best of luck with the bronchitis, that SUCKS.

Hope you feel better soon Rmtt. It happens to all of us eventually. Sometimes you canít avoid the sick bug.

My most recent was with allergies, like really bad. Had to take some time off from training even missed a few days of work. I swear my allergies get worse every year!

Thanks guys. Like I said, I'm one of those that hardly ever get sick. When I am, I tend to be antisocial. Unfortunately....it's also when the nurturer in my wife comes out....when I want to be left alone.

I'm just ready to get back into training. Also, since I had never had an ear infection....I wondered why I felt so off-balance recently. Odd feeling.

Yup, I did. The resort we stayed at had a great gym. Did an early FathersDay workout before a pool day with the family.

Was able to do some chest/biceps and metabolic conditioning circuit, wasnít bad actually.

Hope you all had a good Fathers Day!

Front squats today....working sets up to 3x3 at 305. Felt heavy today.

Then power cleans and squat cleans off blocks.
PC-working sets 3x3 at 205
SC-working sets 3x3 at 225

Happy with the numbers.

First day back in the gym today after being out all last week from being sick. I ended up losing 6lbs, but actually set a personal best in my incline bench that I haven't done in a few years.

I've got about 7 weeks before my beach trip, so time to try and use this break as a catapult to keep adding strength while leaning up as long as I can!

After missing meals and coughing for most of the week...all my abs are showing again for what it's worth.

I'm trying! Bad thing is my appetite is back with a vengeance, and I'm back on my diet which is about 3300 calories right now.

I wish I could be like one of those guys that get lean as they "grow" into a show or contest!
