This is my log following my goal of reaching 225# with 8% body fat, while at the same time gaining speed and power and endurance to compete in singles catagory in the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge, with my second years (2011) time to be under 1.50. this time is not extremely impressive but with asthma and being only second year training for this event I feel it is realistic yet very challenging.

Re: Becoming!!!!
Welcome Steve. Are you doing these exercises in the order written, or are you doing circuits. Hard to tell the way its written.

That being said, looks like a lot of work to me.:highfive:

Re: Becoming!!!!
I will try to format this so it can be read easier, quick question, is it correct to have to reply to your own thread to update it? or is there an easier way? also on my last update i formatted it line by line but when i submitted reply it converted it to paragraph form. any help is apreciated. TODAYS W/O was 10 pullups--hit Keiser sled---100 ft dummy drag (rescue randy)---20 50# bulgarian bag thrust catch and squat. only two full cycles of this cuz i failed to warm up and lower back tightened up pretty bad. :yikes: rookie mistake:shrug: .. then i finished up with a 3 sets of 3 pullups. back was only tight not injured at all. cycles were timed but not accurate since was only myself there. 4.20 sec for full cycle second round.
