+++3pm classes will be canceled this weekend due to the games. But don’t worry, I’ll be posting workouts you can do at home so if you can’t make the morning classes you can still get a workout in! Olympic lifting class is canceled this weekend as well.+++
Jamie loves tire flips.
Olympic weightlifting warm up: Overhead squat – 10 reps with PVC, 10 reps with empty bar, 10 reps with empty bar again or light load.
With a continuously running clock, perform one sumo deadlift high pull the first minute, two SDHPs the second minute, three SDHPs the third minute, until you are unable to complete the designated number of reps in the minute allowed. Use as many sets as need each minute.
Rx’ed weight is 135lbs for elites, 95lbs for intermediates and 65 (or less) for beginners. But don’t think that lighter is “easier” on this one.
Post number of rounds, and number of reps completed into the last round. (i.e. 9 rounds +8 reps)
“. . .The mice were given the equivalent of five 8 oz (227 grams) cups of coffee a day – about 500 milligrams of caffeine.
The researchers say this is the same as is found in two cups of “specialty” coffees such as lattes or cappuccinos from coffee shops, 14 cups of tea, or 20 soft drinks.
When the mice were tested again after two months, those who were given the caffeine performed much better on tests measuring their memory and thinking skills and performed as well as mice of the same age without dementia. . .”
