It was a short week this week, due to a scrimmage for the Blizzard on Thursday and getting home a little after 6:00AM on Friday made it hard to get my training in.
However, Monday through Wednesday I had some great days.
Monday, Andy and I hit the weights harder than we have before. It was difficult going at the pace we were going after a treadmill workout, but we got through it.
Tuesday was the best day I have ever made contact with the NFL balls. It took a little getting used to the strengthening bands we use, but I think after about a month of using them it has really started to pay off. I hit almost every ball perfectly and really felt the power behind my kicks finally. Wednesday was a great workout as well and I used that to get my muscles firing for the day. Shortly after, I prepared for the long bus ride to Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
We are now just a little over three weeks until Pro Day and I am starting to get excited about it. I signed up for a camp in Florida that runs from February 9-13, which I will be able to showcase my talents with kickers around the country. I am hoping this will also get my name out there as well.
There are some big things coming up and I need to be focused more than anything right now. A great mindset is essential in the training process and I will continue to work on visualization exercises, yoga, and mental repetitions with various distractions that could potentially occur when I am kicking. I am continuing to work to try and set myself up for success.
Nothing is ever given to you so go out and work for what you want. Have a great week everyone!
