WOD 3/11/13

13 Mar



6 minutes to find a 1 rep max back squat

rest 30 seconds and do max reps @ 70% of the 1rep max

rest 1 min + 30 sec. followed by another set to failure.


5 Rounds For Time:
30 Sumo Deadlift High Pull (75/35)
15 Overhead Squats

I hit 275lbs on the 1 rep max squat; 16 @ 195lb to failure; 12 @ 195lb  to failure

For the WOD (workout of the day) I did it RX (as prescribed) in 12:37.  I felt good through this workout but would have liked to get it in under 12 minutes.  Following this I had a solid 20 minute love affair w. the foam roller,  I suggest you do the same as this one is a killer on the back and legs!!!

WOD 3/13/13

13 Mar



-5 clean and jerk complexes of 2 cleans followed by 2 jerks….NOT 2 clean and jerks

-4 sets of 10 weighted box jumps (hold the plates in your hands) Try to increase weight every set
“The Stanky Leg”
For Time
Row 1000m
20 Deadlifts (225/135)
100 Air Squats
-Max rep pullups (unbroken)
I did the clean and jerks starting at 135lb and went up 20lbs each set,  the weighted box jumps I started w. 10lbs in each hand and did the last set with 35lb plates.  This WOD is deceiving finished in 7:38 RX but literally couldn’t walk for a good 3-5 minutes immediately following the workout.  Then had to jump on the bar, surprisingly I was able to get 21 pullups in.  Tough day!!!

Who doesn’t love a nice stuffed pepper surprise hidden in the Sunday sauce?  Well that’s exactly what I slipped into this Sundays pot when I was cooking up my meals for the week.   The recipe is slightly complex as there are a lot of separate ingredients that need to come together in order for this succulent green stuffed surprise to really make you moan!

Bulletproof Coffee

5 Mar

bulletproof coffe

Prior to six months ago, I had only sipped on coffee once. The taste was bitter, and I’d heard all about the negative health consequences that came along with drinking coffee. Coffee supposedly stunted children’s growth, was addicting, and increased the likelihood of contracting several diseases. David Asprey of inspired me to give the black drink another chance, and I am so glad that I did.

Garlic & Lemon Roasted Broccoli

27 Feb

When it comes to vegetables I have 2 rules:

Rule #1: Buy the freshest produce I can get my hands on

Rule #2: Keep it simple

There is nothing simpler then squeezing some fresh lemon over some fresh broccoli and roasting in the oven until the tips get nice and chard.  One of my favorite ways to prepare these and most other veggies for that matter.
