Matt E and Sean P giving it all up on the Newbie WOD Squats.
1 pull up the first minute, 2 pull ups the second minute, 3 pull ups the third minute. . . go for as many rounds as possible until you can’t do the number of pull ups required in the allotted minute for that round.
Advanced: start with 45lbs added, then drop to 20lbs when you can’t keep up, then go do no weight added.
Post rounds (and loads if used) to comments.
The work tracked 500 older runners for more than 20 years, comparing them to a similar group of non-runners. All were in their 50s at the start of the study.
Nineteen years into the study, 34% of the non-runners had died compared to only 15% of the runners. . ..
Running not only appeared to slow the rate of heart and artery related deaths, but was also associated with fewer early deaths from cancer, neurological disease, infections and other causes.
And there was no evidence that runners were more likely to suffer osteoarthritis or need total knee replacements than non-runners – something scientists have feared. . .
