Got a nice workout in class chopping up a log with an axe until my cylinder ran low. Also did some stair climbing and worked with chainsaws.

Yesterday was more chain saws, more stair climbing and push ups.

Lower body workout with the PT today but I forgot my notebook with him.

This morning I participated in the Manassas Stair Climb. I climbed with 10 of my classmates, all of us in bunker pants and coat, and a few of us with packs, carrying a few names out of the 343 fallen firefighters. On our 7th or 8th trip up I carried a high-rise pack. Tough but rewarding day.

I need to fix the picture links on my first post sometime..

Yesterday was finals for my firefighter I/II class, and I passed each skill! I also completed the final written exam with a 94%, so while I have yet to graduate I'm a firefighter! The classes we have left to take before graduation day (hazmat ops and rit/mayday) are separate certificates.

Your workouts are remarkably well thought out for somebody who says they never had a background in exercise.

Where did you get the information you used to put them together?
