Surviving COVID and respiratory therapy - adding powerlifting lifts with weights

COVID recovery is usually long but the inter-individual variation is huge. Some healthy adults take a couple of weeks while others take several months. Mine seems to be the longer type given that I'm old and suffer from adult-onset asthma.

Now we have one Olympic lifting based barbel complex session, one bodyweight session, and one walking session per day. The walking session will end this week because of the high temperatures expected to begin Wednesday. Not only I am heat intolerant but heat is one of the asthma triggers.

This week we added both squatting and benching starting with the empty barbell and adding 10 lbs each 3-rep set up to when I have no more squats/benches to give. It's an interesting approach that keeps a high volume at a controlled level.
