Episode 302 – How do you go about coming back to training after such illness?

Written by Jonathan

I’m trying to save time on my back workouts, I’m just curious if doing Deadlifts, Bent Over Rows, and Pullups/Chin-ups are enough to build it completely?

So here’s the deal, I’m looking forward to compete in weightlifting, but I get sick a lot. So here’s the question: when dealing with illness (common cold, flu) what’s the wisest thing to do regarding training? If the illness involves/leads to infection (strep, sore throat) do the same rules apply or is it an exception to take a rest? How do you go about coming back to training after such illness? Thank you in advance

This is a ‘Noob’ question, but i’m at a loss. I lift early in the morning so I don’t train with anyone to spot me. My lifts are getting stronger and the first dumbbell rep is getting harder and harder. How do I get the first dumbbell chest press rep?
