It was pretty warm out today. A very physical day, getting ready for our class' midterms next week and finishing up loss control. I was right about it being arms intense..

My PT went on vacation today and because midterms are in a week (and will be a long day at that), I may be taking it a little easy this week. Will work out at the station and possibly with a guy from class.

No gym workout this week as I have been practicing my skills for midterms (tomorrow), which involves plenty of sweating and heavy lifting. I'll definitely be back in the gym sometime next week.

Did well on midterms.

Workout in the station gym today.

Incline DB Press - 15x12, 12x15, 10x15, 8x20
Flat DB Press - 15x12, 12x15, 10x15, 8x20
Bent DB Row - 4x15x15
Upright Row - 4x15x25
Ez Bar Military Press - 2x15x25*

*Normally I would have done four sets of 15x25, but I was experiencing some pain in my upper back/right side so I decided to stop. I have more intense classes this week so I don't need an injury; I'll talk to my PT about it when I see him.

More ladder training today. Did some drags last night in class with a 185-lb dummy. I think I'm going to switch up my routine for the next month to focus mostly, if not solely, on some of the functional movements I'm going to have to make at finals time and for the rest of class. I'm thinking.. flipping tires, dragging tires, squats with an airpack on.

I hurt my arm/shoulder last night in class so no deadlifts.

So what is loss control all about? Also what are you studying, what classes were your midterms on? I'm really into health, fitness and nutrition and always curious on learning more.

I'm training to become a firefighter. Loss control deals with preventing/minimizing damage to property during and after fire attack. For midterms we were tested on our ability to perform seven different skills; no written test.

Class today was almost 8 hours of lecture - wasn't expecting to get any PT until our class climbed the tower (5 floors) 3 or 4 times. I have 10 days off from school so I plan on training and working hard in the gym this week.
