Monthly Workout/Challenge: 3 minute push-up/handstand challenge
Record the amount of time it takes you to hold the top position of a push-up for 3 minutes. If you can do it in one set, ie 3 minutes, that is the top score. Keep the clock running even when you are resting. Example: you need to take 3 breaks in order to accumulate 3 minutes held in the push-up position and your total time was 4:45. 4:45 would be your score.
Same rules as above but hold a chest to wall handstand.
Same rules as above but hold a free standing handstand.
Current record for this is 4:02 held by trainer Andy Cieply.
Tina Sykes has made phenomenal progress with her overall strength at the gym in the last 6 months working with trainer Andy Cieply. She is dedicated, committed, an EasyFit Challenge Graduate and an overall amazing human.
Jacks First Chin-up: for 2 years Jack has been putting in the hard work, in the gym, in the kitchen and on the playing field. He is down 40lbs and is continually getting stronger each week. After hitting his first 4 chin-ups in one workout, he proceeded to climb a 12 foot rope for the first time also!
The best organic blueberries on earth are found at Blueberry Brooke in Deansboro. Beautiful setting, and you pick at your own leisure, I highly recommend!!
Quote I'm Pondering:
"When we use artificial fertilizers to create artificial soil it grows artificial plants which produce artificial animals, which make artificial people, who can only be kept alive with artificial's."
- Sir Albert Howard
What I'm reading, listening, watching or eating:
The famous Spartan battle where 300 Spartans killed over 6500 Persians at the Battle of the Hot Gates. If you need some motivation in your life, want to increase your appreciation for all the luxury we are afforded or just want an amazing read, this is it.
“The hardship of the exercises is intended less to strengthen the back than to toughen the mind. The Spartans say that any army may win while it still has its legs under it; the real test comes when all strength is fled and the men must produce victory on will alone.”
― Steven Pressfield
