***There was some great results on the first week of the nutrition challenge, all contestants had dropped some weight. Keep up the great work and remember if you cheat you are cheating your partner. Also, HIIT training is on Monday at 8:30 PM, Wednesday at 8:30 PM and Sunday at 11 AM anyone can attend.***

Strength: Week 3 for Deadlifts


Death by Deadlifts and Shuttle Runs

Every minute on the minute do the following:

  • 1st minute – 1 deadlift (155/105 lbs) – 1 – 20 ft shuttle run
  • 2nd minute – 2 deadlifts (155/105 lbs) – 2 – 20 ft shuttle runs
  • 3rd minute – 3 deadlifts (155/105 lbs) – 3 – 20 shuttle runs

You will do the above until failure. Every repetition counts, so don’t stop until minute ends.


*Well, maybe its an addiction. Almost four months ago, July 1st to be exact, I decided to get my health back in order and get myself into better shape. I joined an intense (extreme?) workout regiment called CrossFit. For those that have spoken/seen me in that last few months, they know I cannot shut up about it. Well, one of the guys in my "Box" wrote an interesting piece on his website regarding his first 3 months as a CrossFit member. His articulate article puts everything I feel/experienced about CrossFit in one piece. If you have time and/or are thinking of getting back into shape, or if you are physically fit and are looking for a new physical challenge, I highly suggest you read the article.

November 1st will be my 120th day as a CrossFit member. To date, I am just shy of losing 30lbs. The weight loss, however, doesn't tell the whole story. The amount of lean muscle mass put on has been equally impressive. I hope to hit my goal by next week.


PS. My wife joined as well for moral support & in the process has gotten hooked too.*
