Monday......back in the saddle

Yoana and I spent a nice weekend in Phoenix visiting my brother and his family. As we do not have children of our own yet I was reminded what a blessing children are. His two boys Aidan and Soren are 5 and 2 and are so much fun to be around. Honestly I cannot wait to be a daddy, hopefully this year! It was great my bro Keats and spending time with family really drives home what life is all about; RELATIONSHIPS!
Having a personal relationship with God and with others is what life is about. When you get to the end your your life the last thing you will be thinking about is all the of the "Stuff" you accumulated or how much success you had. You will thinking about the relationships you had and the people you love. If there is one truth and supreme principle of life, that is it; love God and love others.

Today's training:

Barbell Military Press

95 pounds 1 x 5
115 pounds 1 x 3
135 pounds (negative only) 3 x 1 rep

Pull Ups (weighted)

24kg 5,4,3,2,2 = 16 reps


32kg 3 sets x 5/5

Energy was not so good today. I think the trip smoked me. I need to rest up as not to get the cold that is going around. I can feel it coming on so I need to be careful. Day off tomorrow!

Amen to what you said about relationships. In EMS I get to see the good, bad & ugly side of life. Things are just things and time with the ones you love is where its at.

Don't get that cold....Ive been weezin & sneezin x2 weeks. Take care

So true David. Material things in the long run mean very little. Relationships are the key!

thanks for the encouragement. Pull ups with 24kg? Impressive. What is your bodyweight?

Franz Snideman said...

Hey There!

I weigh 170 pounds at 5' 11'.
The 24kg is not too bad for me. My goal is to get the BEAST for a single. I am a couple of inches away, Hopefully by summer time.
