The weekend WOD’s were really tough but we wouldn’t want it any other way.
Below are the strength days so everyone knows when is what.
This week: Tuesday-Power Cleans, Thursday-Front Squats.
Next week: Monday-Back Squats, Wednesday-Deadlifts, Friday-Shoulder Press.
This cycle will continue until the middle of December.
I’ll be posting a video on the Facebook group to explain a little more about the strength cycle.

5 Common Fitness Myths
Myth: You must exercise for 60 consecutive minutes.
Reality: 10-20 minute sessions of high intensity exercise burn as many calories and provide nearly the same health benefits as one 60-minute session.
Myth: Lifting weights will turn you into a pro-wrestling contender.
Reality: Virtually all women and most men can’t develop huge muscles without spending hours a day in the gym lifting very heavy weights and eating very large amounts of food.
Myth: If you stop exercising, your muscles will turn to fat.
Reality: They’ll just shrink. Fat and muscle are two different entities; you can’t turn one into the other.
Myth: By focusing on abdominal exercises, you can lose that beer gut.
Reality: You can’t selectively zap fat off a particular part of your body. To lose a beer gut, you need to lose weight and exercise (and you need to cut down on the brewskis).
Myth: Exercising during pregnancy increases the rate of miscarriage or birth defects.
Reality: With a doctor’s approval, prenatal exercise is very healthy for you and your baby. In fact, studies show that labor and delivery are easier for women who exercise during pregnancy, as is getting back to your pre-pregnancy weight.
