Fight on Friday

Friday 070831
3 rounds
1 min squats
1 min situps
1 min pullups
1 min rest
Like “Fight Gone Bad” The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete(s) must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.
Post reps for each round and total reps.

“Sickness, Wellness, and Fitness
There is another aspect to the CrossFit brand of fitness that is of great interest and immense value to us. We have observed that nearly every measurable value of health can be placed on a continuum that ranges from sickness to wellness to fitness. See table above. Though tougher to measure, we would even add mental health to this observation. Depression is clearly mitigated by proper diet and exercise, i.e., genuine fitness.
For example, a blood pressure of 160/95 is pathological, 120/70 is normal or healthy, and 105/55 is consistent with an athlete’s blood pressure; a body fat of 40% is pathological, 20% is normal or healthy, and 10% is fit. We observe a similar ordering for bone density, triglycerides, muscle mass, flexibility, HDL or “good cholesterol”, resting heart rate, and dozens of other common measures of health. Many authorities (e.g. Mel Siff, the NSCA) make a clear distinction between health and fitness. Frequently they cite studies that suggest that the fit may not be health protected. A close look at the supporting evidence invariably reveals the studied group is endurance athletes and, we suspect, endurance athletes on a dangerous fad diet (high carb, low fat, low protein).
Done right, fitness provides a great margin of protection against the ravages of time and disease. Where you find otherwise examine the fitness protocol, especially diet. Fitness is and should be ‚Äúsuper-wellness.‚Äù Sickness, wellness, and fitness are measures of the same entity. A fitness regimen that doesn‚Äôt support health is not CrossFit.”

    Sit-ups suffered the most in the last round, squats and pull-ups were pretty stable.
    A fun workout, and a perfect ramp-up to the CFT, right?!

    Online pharmacies are easiest way to buy the drugs. The best thing about the online pharmacies is that they sell the drugs at the affordable rates, which suits customer the most. Another important advantage of the online pharmacies is that you get the medicine without anyone knows about it. In fact I would say online pharmacy http://www.drugstoregenerics.com is the best place to buy the medicines related to the sexual health ailments.

    genericpharmacia.com provide the customers with the drugs at the lowest possible costs because they do not have to spend too much on maintaining the physical shop and on hiring the person who will handle the shop. Very less maintenance and rental is required for the online drugs stores so additional savings are done here. Also, http://www.drugstoregenerics.com purchase the medicines directly from the drug manufacturer so they get the drugs at very less costs and the drug wholesaler doesn’t come in between.  This helps the online pharmacies to keep the prices of the drugs at comparatively lower rates than the shopkeepers.
