Foam Rolling and Dynamic Warmup

1) Standing Hurdle Jumps

Tried for 34” this week and got it twice.  Missed it 5 other times though so I kicked the hurdle into the air.  I have a bit of a temper sometimes:)

Dynamic Warmup

Not really sure this was necessary today considering that I had to shovel the 9 inches of snow from the driveway that the sociopath Mother Nature decided to dump on us at the end of March before I could even get to the gym.  Grrr!!

Foam Rolling and Dynamic Warmup

1)   Heidens

2)   SSB Back Squat 8×2 – 110 lb

These were for speed so I did the sets on the minute, which is why I kept the weight pretty light.  Zach asked me how they went, and I said, “Easy.”  His response, “Good.  It was supposed to be easy.”  Also, we took away the box this week, and I was able to keep my tightness so much better.  Zach and I both agreed to keep the box out of it.


3a)  Conventional Deadlifts 2×5 -115 lb

Again, these were nice and easy due to my heavy deadlifts on Sunday and more heavy deads to come on Monday.

3b)  Squat Resets 2×8

4a)  Pushups 4×5

4b)  Seated Cable Row 4×6

5a)  Swiss Ball Rollouts 2×12

5b)  EZ Bar Curls 3×8

Ended the lift with abz and curls working in sets with my buddy, Gabe.  Can’t really think of a better way to end a good week of lifting on a (finally!!) sunny, semi-warm spring day than having fun in the gym with my friends!

Off Day


Final Thoughts

I only have one more week on this program, and then Zach Moore might be switching things up on me a bit.  I am kind of sad about that because I have really enjoyed these past few months of training, but I know Zach will come up with a new program that is both fun and gets me to my goal.  Speaking of goals, I just might be headed toward some new ones this summer – we will see!
