    TRAINING:
    Boxing(2min rounds)
    4 rounds jump rope
    3 rounds shadow boxing
    3 rounds heavy bag
    2 rounds precision bag
    2 rounds double end bag
    1 round speed bag

    Blah, Blah, Blah...Also did 4 rounds of real light sparring. Got there late, so didn't have time to do as much as I wanted. It was a good day though. Was loose, fast, and moving around quite a bit.

    Friday, October 5

    TRAINING:
    Boxing(2min rounds)
    4 rounds jump rope
    3 rounds shadow boxing
    3 rounds heavy bag
    3 rounds precision bag
    3 rounds double end bag
    1 round jump rope
    1 round shadow boxing

    Blah, Blah, Blah...Have been doing a little "extra credit" at the end of my boxing workouts for a few months now. I do situps for a minute and do a set of pullups. Situps are done on a decline slant board whatever-you-call-it thingy. I don't count reps, just go. Usually do 4-5 reps straight then twist to one side, then the other and repeat until the bell rings. For pullups I rotate what type I do each session. One time I'll do kipping pullups, the next parallel grip, and the next chins. I do as many as feels right that day. Not to failure, but a good set. Usually around 7-12 reps. I haven't taken any before and after stats/pics, or anything, but for the little time and energy required it seems to be paying off well. I feel a lot more sturdy and balanced. And as an added bonus, my shoulders/back have apparently grown a little. Even people that see me everyday have mentioned I look broader now. Anyways, just a tip I thought I'd share. A quick set of situps and pullups at the end of your cardio days can reap big rewards.

    Blah, Blah, Blah...Weight 193.8...That came out of nowhere. That ties my PR. Had some help getting motivated from someone at the gym. Big, strong dude I've talked to a few times before. Says he pulled 800 in competition before(when he was younger) and judging from the weights he moves now I'm inclined to believe him. Seems to know his stuff. Mainly just gave me verble cues and watched me. It made a difference though. I wouldn't have came close to even trying that weight today if he weren't there.

    Thanks. I'm always reading articles and going over what I do in my head. And somewhere in that muddled mess that is my mind, it made sense for me to add it in. Apparently my instincts were right.

    Blah, Blah, Blah...Not bad...Did nothing last week. Had to work a few impromptu 12's and had parent teacher conferences for both kids...Since I've lifted once in the last 3 weeks, and I have less than 2 weeks until my surgery, I'm just going to skip lifting and mess around at the boxing club a little for now. Yes I said surgery. I have been tested and cleared to be the kidney donor for the dude at church. As long as he, or I, don't get sick it'll happen on Nov. 19th.

    It's never been hard to see how you are so well blessed, but now it has come easier to see just why?

    I applaud your selflessness, not that you want the attention or applause for what you are doing, far from it. God bless you and your family Brian!!

    Quick update:

    Surgery went well. As soon as they put my kidney in him it started working. The surgeon said I had great kidney's and that my friend couldn't have gotten a better donor. Good to know the fitness nut in me paid off in some way. I'm in some pain, but it's bearable. They sent me home with some percosets. Only had to stay in for 2 nights. It was nice being home for the holiday.

    Had my post op check up yesterday. Doctor says everything's healing up well. I'm even a little ahead of the curve. Apparently, most people are still taking pain meds. I quit taking them 3 days ago. I still have to wait 2 more weeks before doing anything, and even then he said to start out extremely light and easy. Right now I can walk, or ride a stationary bike, but nothing with any impact. I asked if I could jump rope and he said no to that even. The other guy is still doing well too. All his numbers are good and no signs of rejection. So far it has been a pretty smooth process. For that I am a happy guy.
