Wednesday 021010 – Back Squat
Back Squat 3×5, then:
As many rounds as you can do in 12 minutes of:
2 Med-ball shots
4 Squat thrusts (burpee without the pushup)
6 Hang power snatch (65/45)
For med-ball shots you turn a 20″ plyo box upside-down and shoot a med-ball (10#/8#) into the box from 12′ away. Repeat until you make 2.
Accuracy is one of the 10 elements of fitness as defined by CrossFit. Can you think of other exercises that are regularly performed that work on accuracy?
The NY Times Health Blog discusses a recent study finding that TV commercials had a greater association with childhood obesity than the programming being watched.
The study wasn’t able to document how much food advertising children were exposed to. But research shows that young children are exposed to about 30 hours of food-related advertising annually. During Saturday cartoons, children see an average of one food ad every five minutes, most of which are for junk food, the researchers noted.
This probably isn’t much of a revelation for most parents, seeing that most kids start begging for McDonald’s as soon as they can speak, but is a motivator to utilize DVR’s to skip commercials and watch videos without commercials with our children.
