I saw Dr. Choy about my knee. He advised me to get an MRI on it.  He is worried I might have some damage to ACL.  Thats rough.  I'll keep my mind positive until I get the results.

Today was a long day.  Monday's are my day where I get the opportunity to open the gym and work with my early morning go-getters at the gym.

I hit up the 7-11 before opening the gym at 4:30am for a Coffee.
When I got the gym I added some Heavy Cream to the Coffee.

Meal 1:
Celery and Almond Butter
Meal 2: 
Celery and Almond Butter
2 Oz Meatball with Pesto
Chicken Salad with Walnuts and Balsamic
Meal 3:
White Fish with Asparagus
Meal 4:
Italian Sausage with Broccoli and Tomato Sauce. 


A: Every Min On the Minute for 30 Min:
2 Power Cleans (62kg)
3 Ring Push Ups

B: 4 Rounds for time of:

20 Cal Airdyne Sprint
15 Ball Slams (30lbs)


Part A was exactly what I wanted it to be.  The power cleans were nice and neat, touch and go and after the last set I still felt like I could do more. My rings were set a little less than 2ft off the ground. The last few sets began to get tough.  I forgot the burn you get on your arms from being on the rings.
It was good to know I could do 60 Power Cleans and 90 Rings Push Ups and still feel able to do more after.
Part B was tough.  I finished the workout in 7:12. the first round went well, but returning to the airdyne, it began to feel like pedaling through wet cement! Rob killed it and finished a few minutes ahead and Wayne hustled at the end and beat me by a few seconds!  I got pretty competitive on it and it felt great!

I dont feel sore but just tired.  I had several things left to do at the gym and didn't get home until about 7:30pm.  Thats a 15-hour day.  I will sleep well tonight!

Oh yeah.. I got up on the new pull up rig and did my first pull up in over a year tonight!  Felt great.
Of course... my loving competition team immediately yelled, "No Rep."

Days this long make it tough to stay hydrated. I have already consumed 160oz of water and still feel dry.  I will try to get another 60oz in before bed.

Looking forward to the rest of the week.

  1. If it helps you push harder then by all means, I just wanted to finish and maintain pace. That 40lb ball sucks to do slams with
