Friday 12.10.10

Awesome/ creepy video.....definitely wouldn't make it at our gym and even with the money she makes, what can she do with it?  Although, when it comes to OUR "aspiring hand model training", the goal of our gym is functional fitness.  We have all experience ripped hands while dead lifting, pull ups, cleans, etc.  If you feel your hand ripping, lower the weight, switch to ring rows or other modification, or simply STOP!  Ripped hands should be avoided whenever possible (unless you are winning a metal or money).  The goal is to be able to do something the next day, not be sidelined by torn callouses. 

HSPU Day #25

SWOD: Deadlift 90%+ x 1, 70-75% x2x5 (add 5-10 #)

Metcon: On the Minute....for 12 minutes
Perform 2 Front Squats and Max Rep Push Ups
 *Perform Front Squats @ 65% of 1 RM
 Score is number of Push Ups.

For the Deadlifts, try to add something (from 1 pound to 5 lbs) to the weight you lifted last time.  Then drop down the weight to 70-75% for two sets.  Compare weight from 11.29.10.
