Article:

Practicing balance and coordination transfers over to less falls.

“The researchers found:

• None of the trained participants fell on the slippery floor and seven of the eight never lost balance.

• The control group’s performance on the slippery floor revealed their lack of training. Their performance was akin to the trained group’s first training slip on the platform . . .”

    Ramon! Beast. He’s a wffb (wallflower firebreather)..quietly training like a machine in the background with a 20lb weight vest on. Beat me at the Newbie the other day while wearing the vest on the run! Amazing progress, bro.

    Josh J. (Jorgie) confirmed

    Please RSVP with me, even if you appear on this list (click my name for my e-mail, below). This is not a “just come and invite every friend you’ve got” event since we need to cap the attendence for logistical reasons. If you’re not on the list, and you want to come to either the competition or after party, again, please RSVP with me.

    Spouses and S.O.s are invited to the UFC fight night afterwards (which is free on Spike-241 and 241.1 on DirecTV at 6pm). Again, please RSVP any guests for this portion, as well.

    I may be spamming your Facebook or e-mail address, today, if you’re not on the list, above.

    Humbled by the 40yo+ women at the Shed: I did Angie in 20:57 at the hotel today.

    Funny looks and they couldn’t understand why I was mad.

  • Jeremy Jones

    Alternated Back Squats and Weighted Ring Dips.

    BS – 225, 235, 235, 235 – Fail on 3 (not low enough), 225
    WRD – 53, 58, 63, 63 Fail on 5 (no lockout), 63 Fail on 5 (no lockout).

    With my BSs I started my sets too high with not enough warm up. I think not enough food and sleep lately is hurting my performance as well.

    -jj
