Step It Up

I have to start this week out with a huge thank you to the KCRW all-star team and offer my congratulations for their victory over Springfield. Getting a chance to see you skate was amazing as usual and I was happy to see you win by well over 150 points. Yesterday was all about adventure. I hope you took the time to enjoy it because it is Monday and we are back to business. This weeks business will be pain. We must first learn to endure pain so that we can then learn to inflict it. We will be starting the week off hard and keeping a higher tempo throughout the rest of the week. This will help your skating to continue improving so you will attain peak performance as we move toward the big national tournaments. Without further adieu, here is your workout!

10min. warm up
3x 20 squat jumps
3x 10 squat thrusts (burpee)
3x 15 pushups
2x 25 side leg lifts (each side)
3x 10 sumo squats
3x 15 front arm raise
3x 15 lateral arm raise
50 meters skipping for distance
50 meters of lunges
10 min. cooldown

That is about all of it. Couple of thoughts: 1. This should hurt 2. When it hurts tomorrow, take a bath in epsom salts 3. If you are feeling stiff, take a longer time to warm up. You will feel better after getting some blood through your muscles.

I will leave you with a quote that has been widely used and to the best of my knowledge is of unknown origin. If you apply this to your game, your workout, or your life I promise it will help.
Here you go!

A New Day

This is the beginning of a new day. We have been given this day to use as we will.We can waste it or use it for good but what we do today is important. We have exchanged a day of our lives for it. When tomorrow comes today will be gone forever, leaving in it's place something we have traded for it. We want it to be gained not lost, good not evil, success not failure in order that we should not regret the price we paid for it.

Make it a good one and enjoy!!!

  1. I would like to say that 3x20 squat jumps are not fun and by halfway through I looked like I was hardly hopping off the ground!
