Tuesday I did a pool workout in the morning and an upper body bench session at night. I hit 345 for a single followed by 225x19 times. Things are going according to plan and I believe I'll do around 23 reps on Pro Day. Wednesday morning we woke up early and worked out at Athletic Evolution in Woburn. Despite being slightly fatigued and not fully awake I managed to jump 37.5 inches in the vertical leap. All my systems are rounding into form and I'm confident I'll peak March 3rd.
This morning I had more soft-tissue work done. I can't stress how invaluable this has been for me. In this business your body is subjected to tremendous loads and forces, sometimes only manual therapy can set things back in the right position. It's very similar to a tune-up for a performance race car and I'll continue to use these methods for the duration of my career.
Saturday is a big day in our training phase and in the overall big picture for my draft status. We will be electronically timing a 40 with SPARQ timing gates, doing a vertical jump, a broad jump, shuttle drills and a 225 rep max. We'll be posting the results on YouTube for the world to see, I have nothing to hide!
