No ruck sunday, 150 lbs Military press 5 x 2,36 kg belt squat, floor pushups, side laterals

Got hit badly with some bug on Sunday, just as I got up to ruck and was so woozy there was no way I was going to be able to, or should, do it so I went back to bed. And basically stayed there til Monday morning for work! No food except 1/2 cup rice and some yoghurt.
Never really threw up. Don't know if it was vertigo ( again) or a bug or some mild food poisoning or what but it sucked big time. I didn't even know I was going to work much less train. But, it got done, to the best of my ability

Military press
stick x 5
45 x 5
65 x 4
85 x 3
105 x 2
125 x 2
135 x 1
150 x 2 x 5 sets

that was tough but I figured out one thing I'm doing different now than I did. I am starting the press AND arching at the same time. I have to arch then press- much easier on my left biceps tendon. When I did it that way. no problem The first way, problem
Next week is 8 x 3 then I go to triples, Shouldn't be a problem if I have a normal sunday

36 kg belt squats
x 10.12, 14, 16 reps

too hot to do all high reps, this really let me warm up to them

Floor pushups
3 sets of 36
not bad

Side raises
3 sets of 12 with 15


no crawls, these always make me want to puke and I didn't want to feel anymore of that today

BW 163.2
BF 11.4
W 56.7

lol that'll come back

I saw Tool in concert on Sunday. For some odd reason, I kept imagining you doing military presses.
