Like anything though you just have to prioritize and do your best not to compromise much on the important stuff.
Do you still do nights or busy on-calls? How do you deal with training the day after?

Sorry if I'm asking too many questions, I'm just trying to pick some brains to figure out what may be ahead of me!
Sure I take call. On the day I am on call I don't train. The day after I usually do unless I worked a lot during the night. That is highly variable. Are you considering a career in medicine?

Yes, I'm actually looking to get into med school soon, hence the questions. All I hear is horror stories from US 3rd and 4th years and some residents (usually surgery) about no free time, no holidays, etc. Here in Germany it doesn't seem to be as intense, at least not during university.

Yeah I heard the same shit. Oh its hard, you have no time etc. Most of those douches spent all their spare time lounging in front of a TV. I didn't feel sorry for these people.

6.15
Rostov after
warm up 48 reps 5 min w/24kg LC just for fun
32kg: 5 (30 sec) 1 min rest 12 (1.5min) 2 min rest
24kg 25 (2min)

That was it . Had a bunch of stuff to do. Life still gets in the way I guess.

According to my own experience of interning in a hospital in turkey for a month (ER/ICU) including nights and whatnot, it took some getting used to, but in the end I just figured out how to spend my spare time more efficiently.

Trying to get stronger in general and also trying to knock down specific goals. For example I am trying to nail down 100 reps in one arm long cycle with 40kg. After I do that I will drop OALC and substitute pressing to try to get the 48kg press. Just a way to keep myself entertained and challenged I guess.



7.5
HVLN snatch challenge 5/5 32kg snatch every minute for 20 min

7.6
Long cycle 32kg 5 min 28 reps
One arm jerk 45kg 15/17, 54kg 5/7
Chins BW +20kg 7/6
BW with rings 8/8
Get ups 28kg 5/5 32kg 3/3**
grip work

**getups done without a functional movement screen and also I have not read Kalos Stethnos so this is dangerous, do not try this at home!

You may be suffering from Glute Amnesia or a lack of T-Spine Mobility. You need Brettzel's and a 15 DVD CK-FMS collection.

Thanks Shaf!

7.10

Took an advanced bodyweight, jump rope, medicine ball, kettlebell class with a buddy. It was about 50 min of pretty much continuous work. Actually I enjoyed it as a change of pace
A lot of abdominal work. They were a little sore the next couple days actually.

7.13

One arm long cycle 40kg 6min; 3 min per side one switch 26/26 grip was giving out on the left. Maybe I should use a little chalk.
Trap deads 295x5x3
Combo double snatch front squats 24kg (5 cycles makes one set) x 3 sets start on the top of the minute. 10 minutes done this way would be a real challenge. You end up getting about 15-20 sec rest between sets.
Renegade row superset with hindu pushups 32kg 10/10 - 15 hindus x 2 supersets
Run 20 min

7.15
Fucking plantar fasciitis is getting to be a problem going to back off the GS stuff for a while. The one arm stuff doesn't bother it so much especially if I wear running shoes. This all started a few months ago when I started doing high rep two arm jerks. All that heel slamming is a problem for me.

One arm long cycle 2 min per side one switch 40kg 22/22
One arm jerks 57kg 4/4, 52kg 4/4
DBl Clean and front squat Drop set 36kg 5/5, 32kg 5/5, 28kg 5/5, 24kg 10/10 These are sick and I plan on doing a lot with them
Grip work : COCs, wrist curls, farmer holds with my heaviest bells, club bells
Get ups superset with rope climbs 32kg 3/3 ss w/ 2 trips up the rope x 3 sets
I feel like I am forgetting to mention something but that is enough.

Thanks for the info Tom. Sewickley is about 2hrs from me and those rolfers like about 10 sessions. That will never work with my fucked up schedule. I am working on a plan to fix this and training in running shoes sure seems to help. I also found a seriers of foot exercises that seems to help too. I think I caught this early so it should be fixable. I have heard horror stories though, it can get bad.


7.16

Nailed another goal.. 100 one arm long cycle with 40 kg 10 min didn't set it down, multiple switches. I did it wearing running shoes too and my feet feel fine. Fuck that chuck taylor, adistar, do-win, Nike Romolao, proper foot wear bullshit. Nothing matters.

Then I celebrated with a bunch of get-ups 40kg 2/2, 32kg 5/5, 24kg 8/8

That was it.

Congratulations, Sandman! Awesome job! So the running shoes felt okay? I wear Nike Romolaos also and after a while they sometimes start to feel uncomfortable. I still like the solid support compared to the squishiness of running shoes. So no problems with that for you?
