At Work and bored right now? 


Flip your feet up and do some Handstand Push Ups


I have dedicated myself daily to doing 50, I'll be walking through the gym, typing on my computer or finishing up a class and simply flip up and bust out a quick set. Before you know it...boom...50! 


Can't do a Handstand Push Up? You'd be surprised how many push ups or squats you can get in a day by doing sets of 10 or so multiple times a day. Don't do enough to get sweaty, that's a bit weird at work, but 10 or less should do the trick. 




A very good read


A Metabolic Paradigm Shift, or Why Fat is the Preferred Fuel for Human Metabolism






For those of you who are interested. Each of the 6 regional workouts will be programmed at our gym soon.



Workout for Tomorrow:


Step 1) Find a partner to lift with 

Step 2) Grab all kinds of small, medium and large weights

Step 3) Warm up to a "starting weight"

Step 4) Every minute on the minute for 20 minutes go back and forth for 1 rep each only, increasing the weight by roughly 10lbs or so every minute. The movement will be a thruster from the floor. You must pick the weight up aka clean it, then front squat it, then push press it. This should be all one motion.

Step 5) Set a new record and help your partner 



Before you leave:


3    500 meter rows on the rower, your rest is how long it takes your partner to row.

I will try the 50 HSPUs a day.

Interesting read. 30-70 grams of carbs a day is very doable.

Thanks for programming in the the regional workouts this week!
