Drylands

Swim/SCY @ Pitt

I went to my masters practice early just to get in an easy swim. I did around 2000. I did a few 25 flys @ 100 pace and I did 2 x 50 breast w/fins @ 100 pace. I went 28s on those -- fixing my pull must help. Maybe on day I'll work on my kick ...

    Does your LA Fitness also have a pool?

    You can join the most posh club that there is, but if you never go to that gym, it is of little use to you

    It does have the typical LA Fitness pool -- crappy and 3 1/2-5 feet deep. But there is an adjacent whirlpool. It would Ok for an easy post weights recovery swim.

    Yes -- convenience is everything. I wish I had a closer quality pool ...

    Those supines benches are with dumbells right? Do you hold them with palms facing each other or towards the feet? That's about the weight I use by the way, you're a powerhouse.

    I do them with palms facing each other. 40 lbs (2 DBs) isn't much. I was doing them with 30 lb DBs way back when ...
