In preparation for my break from CrossFit WODs and movement into a Starting Strength routine I have been slowly chipping away at Mark Rippetoe's book. It is hard to read when I have so many other books to get through but I have been making good progress. I have finished the section on squatting and I am very impressed with the detail, explanations and jokes provided. He does an excellent job of describing the lift in great detail which includes anatomy and all the common faults with corrections. I really enjoyed one part regarding spotting, "Any lifter that bails out of a missed rep and leaves the spotters holding the bar should be beaten with a hammer." He has a no BS approach to teaching people how to lift effectively and safely. I know his program has proven results and will aid me in reaching my long term fitness goals.
Today is day 29 of my 30 day HSPU challenge. I will finish just in time so that it will not take away from my press this week. What challenge is next guys?
I have done 500 burbees in the last 7 days for "sins" in my Sugar sin Burpee challenge. I am going to tighten that up a bit because they are starting to get to me. Super Bowl tonight so I might end up making it an even 700 in 7 days. But then thats enough....
