"Today was a bit frustrating. I worked 4 hours later than normal, putting me in bed that much later. I shifted my sleep, diet, and workout to accommodate only to find myself in meetings all day and answering questions for an extra hour after another class I gave. I enjoy helping and teaching, it is a passion of mine- but as soon as I got done helping someone on the rower and was executing my first rep of MY workout, I got called away again. I tell you all this to ask if it's ok if I shift today's training to tomorrow? I'm looking at 2-3 hours before bed. Thoughts.....
Thank you and here is 14 Septembers work...
Push press and sup CTB chin ups @ 4111: 135/11; 155/9; 175/10 (last two reps were COVP); 195/9 (last three COVP); 205x2/7 COVP
Barbell cubans- 45# for 15 reps for all sets...I was very slow and strict with these
3 x 15 toes to bar....no GHD machine
I hope all is well, thank you for your patience!"
this is a note I received a few days ago from Sgt. 1st Class Aaron Grider, US Army; whom I have been working with for while and was killed in action hours after this; i am deeply saddened and hurt, there is no other way to put it.
OPT will be donating money as well as part of the proceeds of the competition on Sep 25th to Aaron and his wife Brittany and child of 5 years of age Catie Ann; the dish will help others in time of need. so please register the $5 allotment for the comp no matter where you compete, thanks.
as I sit here and ponder, i can't help but celebrate the time i did get to chat with Aaron, watch his videos and tenacity to learn and discuss strategies as to how to live a larger life. as you can see with what is written, he was even concerned over my patience with time he was dedicating to learning. so for today, no workout, i will only ask you all to be grateful for what we all have; live every moment!
Sep 25th competition workout will be named respectfully "Grider" in his honor.
I'll miss you Aaron, more than you think.
