  3. Recovering from car accident

    Over the holidays December 22nd, changed my life but Iím getting better. And getting stronger with the help of IronMan clinic PT.

    One of those typical car collisions we hear about, a person on their cell phone (at least she admitted to the police) and not paying attention to driving.
    I was rear ended from full force, my neck, spine and lower back took a beating. Torn and pulled ligaments but thankfully nothing broken, although kinda feels like it. My neurologist Dr Joseph Cochran has cleared me to start weights to get my strength back along with some light swims, just 200-400 only. CT and MRI look great now.

    Chris Ritter is my trainer and has been for the past 3 years. He did a phenomenal job getting me strong again after my kidney surgery in November and I have full confidence heíll get me strong again from this car accident injury.

    First workout was lighter from todayís but it still felt great!

    Deadlift #115x6both sets
    Single arm row #35x6 both sets
    Bridge drag sand bag #30x8 both sets
    Kneeling rollout MB x5 w 5sec hold on end both sets
    Pull ups w band x 5 both sets
    Waiter Carry #25x 20 yards both sets
    Back Squats #55x8 both sets
    Overhead press #45x6, #50x4

    Im hoping to be back in the pool this week! Just worried about my neck, my doc cleared me but Iím still kinda scared. Iíll take it easy👌🏼

  14. 🏋🏻*♀️🏊🏼*♀️💦

    I simpley canít thank Chris Ritter enough for helping me get back on track. He has been my trainer for a couple years and has been there for me through tough times ie.. family crisis, emergency surgery, and unpredictable weather fatalities. Iíve had trainers in the past but Chris is one of a kind. With his passion and dedication to help athletes and myself reach our goals to become stronger has made me have more belief in myself. Itís like when unexpected things in life happen he has helped me become strong again, fast again, and smooth and efficient in my strokes. Iím almost 100% again in my strength and Iím definitely swimming strong!! Thanks Chris.. Although you may not ever see this blog!! LOL💪🏼🏊🏼*♀️💦

  17. 2x workout not so sure, for me

    The past 2 weeks I had been doing both my dry land and swim workouts the same day, sometimes doubling my swims.
    im finding my muscles (not so much joints) are tighter and achier. I hydrate and fuel enough I believe, perhaps it's my position on certain strokes and or kicks in the pool, or could be my body adapting to the new weights of the power phase I'm currently doing with Rittersp. Anywho, I lightened up on my workout, alternating them and feeling better. I've always been hard on my self as some of us are our own worst critics😬😆😇

    swim
    450 easy warm up, bilateral breathing, tight turns off the wall
    10 50's mixed kicks
    6 25's one arm fly
    10 50's mixed kicks
    6 25's breaststroke
    6 100 pull bouy, bilateral breathing, catch up, pull, easy
    6 100's mod pace, tight core, shoulder to ear, long reach,pull, finger tips down anchor pull, complete stroke, flutter kick small and tight, imagining swimming, making a tunnel!!😆😆 crazy!.. Huh!!
    2,950scy indoor pool.. Short swim for me..

  18. SCY.. Too short of time..

    After swimming with Coach Greg, Houston COOGS I was looking forward to replicating my swim session only this time on my own. The JCC has a youth swim group "Frogs" and today was their day in the pool. I was able to get something in, but not much.

    4x100 build
    16x25 odds focus on reach/pull and tiny kicks w relaxed ankles
    Evens sprint
    100 cool down ( was kicked out of lane). : (
