Welcome Back to PR Land!

One of my idols, James FitzGerald. He has the "complete package". He has the best talent, work ethic, and mental focus I have ever seen in an athlete. People know when he walks into a room and without knowing anything about him you can tell he is a great athlete.

Today was my first day back at training after taking a much needed week off to rest the sore quads from Sectionals. I should have been back on Saturday, but I was busy with my gymnast's competition in Edmonton (The Triple Flip Wild Rose International).

A.1) Back Squat @40X0; 2-3 reps x 6; rest 2 min
All 3 reps: 145, 150, 155, 160, 170, 175# (PR!)
A2.) Weighted Chinup @21X0; 1,1,1,1,1,1; rest 2 min
25, 35, 42.5, 47.5, 52.5, 55# (PR!)

B1.) DB Russian Step Up; 10-12/leg x 4; rest 60 sec
12 reps/leg and 20#/hand for all
B2.) Vertical Plane Chinups; 25 reps x 4; rest 60 sec
All sets unbroken

C.) GHD Situps; 2121; 25 reps x 3; rest 120 sec
No GHD at home, so I subbed three different situp styles... Swiss ball, Janda, and V-Snaps

Legs felt strong today, which was surprising actually because of the beating they took at the Sectionals and how weak my back squats were the week leading up to the Sectionals. Played with a different bar and hand position for the back squats. I need more practice with this as my shoulder flexibility is a hinderance here.

    "This is STUPID, you don't combine running with weight training!!!"
