I've noticed a few times after a long layoff in training, getting back into deads and squats, literally after the first session back I get Flu like sick for 2-3 days? I'm good after that first time but what gives? I've had this happen maybe a handful of times in my life. Anyone know why?

I get the same thing, I did a bit of research on this in the past. IIRC its to do with a previous virus sitting dormant in the body, there is something specific about the big muscle groups that allows them to sit there and they can get reactivated under stress.
I cant remember where I read this, its still not a fully understood area. The body is a strange and complex thing.

I always put this down to your CNS getting a bit of a shock. Never heard the virus thing before..seems plausible..shingles, cold sores and other viruses get reactivated under stress.

Ah, waking up the latent herp? Crazy.

I'm surprised more people don't experience this type of sickness if true- dormant virus, etc.

Heavy lifting is stressful. A stressed out body is a sick one. You need to nourish your body with good foods to stay healthy while training hard. Phone Post

AIDS? Well, this time I went down for a week with bad AIDS, so I guess I'll just have to be more careful.

How does Magic do it?

I've gotten this in the past.

Always figured my immune system was faltering a bit due to the exhaustion. Don't think it's uncommon.

Absolutely make sure you get enough rest and recovery. I am finding out myself just how important, more so than actually lifting, recovery and rest can be. As someone pointed out, heavy lifting is stressful, and when you are stressed your immune system suffers

I was shitting blood the last time I went up in weight (to about 405 lbs). Freaked me out, but I've been fine since then.

You aggravated some hemmoroids, known side effect of squatting big weight.

I used to play basketball 5 times a week, lift weights once or twice, work labour 8-10 hours a day and then go and over drink on the weekends.
It seems like all the times I've ever gotten sick always followed weeks of over exertion and lack of rest. Just seems to wipe out your immune system.

When you are young you think doing it everyday will make you better. As you get older you realize that you could have been better if you eased up a bit. Phone Post

I was given a research paper on this very thing last week by Dr Tony Ashton. I teach his kids bjj. Cutting through the detail take vit C supplement before and after training. I'll dig out more details. Phone Post
