I got this advice at the hardgainer forum:
"Do you know Neti Pot/Nose Jug? I've used salt water nasal washes during the last few years when I get a cold/flu. Usually in combination with a Otrivine nasal spray. I used to have one or two nasty sinus infections a year that needed at the very least antibiotics. After I started with nose jug with the very first symptoms I haven't got one. From what I've seen it doesn't work for everyone but it's worth a shot."

I combined it with some nsaid to get the swelling down.
Totally clear in my nose and head today.  ;)

3x8
1x8 77 lbs explosive squats

Wide grip pullup BW. RI 25 sec between microsets.
3x 4x2

DB BP 60,6 lbs (explosive reps)

Superset:

Feels like I'm stalling on squats and DBBP... so I decided to
try to tweak the routine a wee bit. I don't want to mess too much with it.
Calfs rule! It's like there's no limit right now but I'll cut back
on them for the next 4 weeks. Wide grip Pullups is moving forward
slow but steady now. After the next wednesday WO I'll decrease the RI with at least 2 sec.

Ate a too large breakfast too close to the WO....
Squat felt heavy... was nauseous on the warm up...   >:(
The accessory (frog and ext) was really good for my knees.
I remember this from my 5x5, but just one light superset to get the blood flushing through them.
Gaining on pretty much everything else!   :D
A PB in pullups!   ;D

I'll up my cals for at least 2 weeks and see what happens.
