indeed it does.
Hey CrossFitters and other Fitblrs,
I’m participating in Fight Gone Bad V this year and my goal is to raise $150. This is my first, of many future community events, that I’m participating in. So if you’d like to be a part of my journey to save a life or two, please feel free to donate by clicking the picture above. Thanks!
Today, I started this program (bad idea after a brutal heroes WOD?). My initial test recommended I start on week 3. If I follow this program correctly, I should be able to do 100 consecutive push ups by the end of 4 weeks.
We’ll see how this goes.
Fight Gone Bad | a classic Crossfit workout.
Designed originally for BJ Penn, to match the time domain of a fight, while exceeding its metabolic demands.
After BJ Penn got done with the workout, he was asked how was that? He said it was like a fight gone bad. (thnx for the idea timoneil)
i signed up to do Crossfit for a year. this is the only gym on my side of town. it’s fairly new and the atmosphere was great.
Researchers have found that the right type of music can boost running endurance by as much as 15%. But what is the best type of music? The answer lies in three main essentials:
- The Beats Per Minute or speed of the song
- Which type of running you are doing (Long Distance or Sprinting)
- Your stride length and physical health (this can only be done with Trial and Error).
For longer runs, they suggest running for 15 minutes straight at a comfortable pace and counting your steps. Average it out and you’ve got your optimal BPM. Just create a playlist of songs in that specific BPM range. Click-through for the three main BPM ranges and music playlist suggestions.
It’s a commonly held belief that lifting heavy weights builds bulky muscles, and if you want to slim down and tone up, lighter weights and higher repetitions are the answer. The New York Times’ health writer Anahad O’Connor explains otherwise:The notion is not supported by science. Producing bulky muscles requires not just heavy weights but heavy calorie consumption as well, typically far above the 2,000 daily calories recommended for many adults.
For people who lift weights to tone up and slim down, experts say, a regimen that includes a combination of challenging weights and fewer repetitions can help significantly.
