TESTS for Wed, 9-23-15 and Another Yoga Idea.September 23, 2015
Upper Body Push Strength– 2 Mins max reps Bench press at 100%/66% Bodyweight. Bar from full extension to contacting the chest back to full extension is one rep. Hips cannot leave the bench. Spotter can assist from rack to extension and back again, but if the spotter touches the bar or the lifter during a rep, that rep is void. Start and stop as many times as you like in the 2 minutes.
Mental Toughness/Discomfort– Row M-2000m/W-1500m, then 100 wallballs 20/14 for two scores. 1st score is the row portion for time. Second score is the total time for both row and Wallballs. Scores are weighted equally. This is done to stop people from dogging the row.
As you may know, my efforts to bring Yoga to CFCB and/or Monkey Junction have thus far been unsuccessful, but I had an idea I’d like your assistance with.
I’d like to trade a monthly membership to a yoga instructor willing to teach 1 class per week at CFCB. The only restriction is that we’d hold this class on the weekend. This would give the membership at least 1 opportunity to get some yoga in at no cost to you, so please spread the word amongst the yoga types you know. Ideally the class would bend toward some sort of strength based yoga, (Power Yoga?!??! I don;t really know if that’s actually a “thing”).
While it’s on my mind, Ashley HS running is happening at 5:45 am. Soon it will be too cold, so get your laps in now!!
