What are your fitness goals for 2016?
First and foremost, I strive to be in the best shape I can be; both physically and mentally. I plan to lift in a Masters (old person) competition in late July to mid August.
What is your weekly workout routine?
Monday – 60min Rowing (14,310m is my personal best)
Tuesdays – Squat and Deadlift
Wednesday – Bench and light Shoulders and Back
Thursday – High rep Legs mixed with Cardio
Friday – Heavy Arms and Shoulders with Core
I take off on the weekends
What keeps you motivated?
I have several motivations:
#1 – Seeing and feeling the strides I have made and demolished the goals I have already set
#2 – My daughter, Julia, my workout companion
#3 – The people around me that keep me up and help along the way
Do you have a success story to share?
Only July 1, 2015, I came in pushing 310 pounds. By July 1, 2016, I will have lost over 30 pounds and gained strength. My 3 major lifts have all been added to be 100 pounds plus, all due to the help of some knowledgeable staff and trainers and the mindset to never stop and never quit no matter what.
