    Shoulder presses in the smith. (Remember we always take the counter weights off.)

    25's on bar. 20 reps
    45's 10 reps
    purple band
    2 sets 8 reps
    25's w/ bands 2 sets 8 reps
    45's w/ bands 2 sets 8 reps
    45+25 w/ bands 5 reps
    All sets were super seted with DB upright row.
    sets of 10 as heavy as 80lbs

    DB chest supported row super seted with close flat DB presses.
    100's for the rows and 105 for the presses. 10 reps for each. I know its not heavy but that wasn't the idea.

    Pull-ups super set with DB side laterals
    10 and 10

    Sat. will be our first work back in shirts. Not sure what type of reps or sets yet but ill be sure to post it Sat after noon.

    Monday moring run.
    Mon-WED-Fri I try and do a short run. 1.5 to 3 miles depending on how I feel.

    I run with one of my training partners Chris Merz. Big guy 5'10" 230 but the boy can run. 18 months with 80lbs body armour in the sand box will do that to you. i do it just to stay in shape. Plus its summer who doesnt wanna look better.

    Crazy bench bro. What routine were you doing before this one?
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    Started the morning at 730AM witha scoop of results and 3 Thermoocin, 2 scoops of Nitrean. Im trying the 1 scoop of results on my morning running days to see if it make any differnce in my distance to time and how long I can last with out my legs tiring. Still building lung stamina though.

    1.5 mile run at 9am.

    I'm running for time as SWAT try outs are next month due to a spot opening on the team. so wish me luck.

    Tonight GPP work 930pm

    Stairs every 3rd step up to 2nd floor 3 times was 1 sets and we did 3 sets with a 90 sec rest between.

    Jump Squats
    3sets 10 jumping as high as you can with each set.

    1 sets of parking lot lunges


    My legs are smoked. I also ran 2 miles sunday night at around 8pm then ran again the next morning.

    Thanks Chris, just trying to earn my keep. I wanted to do the 200's but they gave me the "dont we got alot of training ahead of us" crap, but its cool.
    Thats great thing about our gym, we have up to 200lbs DB's. Not many other gyms can say that.
