My Training Schedule

I'm often asked what my training schedule is...well here you go.

Monday: Swim; 6:30-8:00am, 3-5pm. Weights; 1:30-3pm
Tuesday: Dry-land; 1:45-3:00pm. Swim; 3-5pm
Wednesday: Swim; 6:30-8:00am, 3-5pm. Weights; 1:30-3pm
Thursday: Dry-land; 1:45-3:00pm. Swim; 3-5pm
Friday: Swim; 6:30-8:00am, 3-5pm. Weights; 1:30-3:00pm
Saturday: Swim; 9:00-11:00am

My weight workouts consist of many different exercises that includes but is not limited to; biceps, triceps, lat pull, bench, squat, leg extension, calf raises, rows, and core work...

Dry-land varies depending upon what part of the season we're in. Some of the exercises we do may include; pull-ups, push-ups, dips, running the stadium, medicine ball work, box jumps, and of course more core work...

In addition to what I do in the pool and in the weight room I do extra work at home. I generally do about 300 extra push-ups at home as well as modified dips using my coffee table... I am always trying to get stronger and like pushing myself to be better. My goal is to be able to do 100 push-ups in a row. Right now I can do in the 60's. Most of my sets are between 30 and 50 push-ups at a time. I know getting stronger is what I need to do in order to get faster...Needless to say, I will get stronger!

Oh yeah...CRAZY.

lol... j/k. That's a pretty intense schedule, though. Wish I could say actors never have to deal with a schedule like that... but I can't... lol.

Respect points for keeping up with it! :D My friend also just gave you a thumbs up... I don't know how many points that's worth, I haven't worked out the conversion chart yet... should probably get on that... lol.

Yes it is definitely a lot of work...

You don't need this much dedication to working out to become more fit...simply try and do something a few days a week and you will see a difference.

I love to cook as you already know. I also like to do things outside...Austin is a really great place to be outside...tons of parks and things so I try to do that a lot!

Wow!! Pretty intense stuff I might add. I have been lifting a lot for what I do and I see the improvements.

I went snowboarding the other day and nearly busted my
