August 3rd 2015
Today is my big sisters birthday! I rarely talk about her or the influence she has had in the strength Ive gained in my strength in life. Its A LOT. Our family is much different then most, we are not call you every day tell you about all the nitty gritty details of my life type people, but we are a drop everything in a second what do you need type family. That is Loyalty! That is blood, that is a blessing in my eyes. No drama just a solid knowing that my family wherever they are in the world is there supporting me, my adventure, my struggle, MY STRUGGLE, and of course my many many successes. That is how we were raised. I am blessed to have that loyalty instilled in me. And blessed to have a Big Sis like SAJ!
This one time I hit a tree snowboarding, NBD only fucked up my body a lil bit. I asked my sister to move to Whistler come help me out while I healed, she didn’t blink an eye and dropped her life in Toronto and was on the next flight. That is Loyalty, That is blood, That is Family, That is a pure Jurgeit quality and very rare Im Aware. #Blessed to be well raised with solid moralities, even if they get confused or lost along the journey. Its a journey….Its not suppose to be easy right?!?!?!
Back in Scottsdale, and whenever I’m here I’m always slipping back into the solid routine that keeps me sane. Sleep, food, work ethic, all on point. Feels amazing, makes me realize where exactly I need to make my home, whether or not I can make that happen is solely up to me. I can do anything…its about truly realizing what I want.
Spent the last week traveling, and clearly from pattern…traveling has not been beneficial to my mental sanity. This week as been amazing dropping back into routine, on point nutrition, and trying hard to sleep longer than 4 hours a night.
Monday 7/27 NewYork/Scottsdale
Always AM work… trying to dampen my desire to push extra…Its HARD!!! Im aggressive in the AM!
A. Hang power snatch + hang snatch; 2+1; 6 sets; build per set; rest 2 min
#115- Roughed up still from Friday Night
B. FS @40X1; 8×1; rest 90-120 sec
Michael Bann worked on some mobility with with me and he thinks that yes my ankle is yes inhibiting my mobility but also some core work, because we did some tests with squatting holding a plate in front of me and goblet squats and I actually have some much better mobility. I guess more core work is in the books
C1. CGBP @20X1; 7×3; 84-86%; rest 90 sec
C2. Single arm paused DB bent over row @31X3; 7×3 per arm; rest 90 sec
Tuesday 7/28 Scottsdale

50ft OH walking lunge 75#
10 ring push ups
Struggled with this and my right shoulder…Took me longer than it should have.
D. 4 sets; ring FLR x60-75 sec; rest 2x work
Hard to hold for 60 on final two sets
Wednesday 7/29 Scottsdale
A. Reverse hyper extension; 4×12-15 @50% of 1RM BS; rest 90 sec
No reverse hyper here at OPEX, but I used the Row Bench and held a #20 Med Ball in my legs, I felt my glutes working properly on the DL and lunges was solid. I will incorporate these into my warm ups I think. Its not heavy but I like the feel when everything is working as it should.
B. DL @11X1; 5×5; 76%; rest 3-4 min
C. 5 sets; every 90 sec; DB walking lunges; 5×10 (5/leg) @75-65lbs/hand
#50 no way could I manage #65 for 10….right side of body is still roughed up unfortunately.
D. Hanging strict leg raise @2011; 4×6-10; rest 90 sec; point your toes, legs straight
FUCK….So Gross. Barley hitting 6 paying attention to the tempo, last ones on last sets would be iffy. Lower core hurts today.
E. Single arm ring hang; 5 sets; as long as possible; rest 1 min b/t arms
Right Shoulder is a no go with this movement at the moment. Its fine if weight is spread across two arms but not one.
Until next time, I truly appreciate all the LOVE I get from all of Yall 🙂 keeps me moving, and pushing, pursuing those goals!
