Thursday night at 7:30pm is a CrossFit Express Class. I hope to see you there.
The Iron by Henry Rollins. Trevor sent this to me last night, health and I had read it years ago. But dammit, The Iron is something you should read regularly to “stoke the fire.” There are some memorable one-liners in this essay. Please pick your favorites and post to Facebook comments.
Are you reading this a doing a double take? Weighted “PUSHUPS”??? Oh, it’s a thing. We haven’t done this in a while, but since we’re at the end of the pushups challenge, it seemed like fun. To perform a weighted pushup, you lay on the ground, on your chest, at the bottom of the pushup position. Have a partner, or 2, stack weight on your scapula. Once they have hit the desired weight – PUSH. I wouldn’t make the weighted pushup the center piece of my strength training, but it is fun to do once in a while. And it makes for great pictures.
