Had a sprint/HIIT session today, but had to cut it short due to the overwhelming heat. The whole stadium was practically empty apart from us and the SAFSA soccer team waiting for training to begin at the grandstands - which is a good thing as it's distracting to be doing sprints when its crowded.
2 rounds of
- 100m sprints
- 30 air squats
- 25 pullups
- 25 bar dips
- 30 lunges
Tomorrow I'm off to anchorage & sea-trial for a long period of time (thankfully I don't have to deal with "insecurity" anymore). Lots of good quality protein - lots of roast beef, chicken, fish (poached salmon) and eggs. Lots of greens too, especially the smashing platter of fruits. And there is a gym onboard which I haven't checked out yet, but I heard there's a pullup bar, and a barbell.
And again, why you should Crossfit:
Angela told me yesterday that she went with a bunch of her friends who were runners to get their body fat % tested. All of her friends appear to be thin, yet Angela's body fat was 10% lower than all of her running amigos. She said they were all pretty upset about it. I would be pissed too if I was running my ass off with no change in BF%, while one of my buddies was getting lean and ripped by cranking out 15 minute WODs 3x per week. This should not be surprising to you by now. Long slow distance exercise burns muscle which lowers your metabolism, so you get fatter. Skinny fat is the term that describes someone who looks thin but has high BF%. The loss of muscle caused by "cardio" is detrimental to your fitness and your metabolism. The answer is to build muscle with constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity. There is no need to do traditional cardio and very little, if any benefit from doing so. Great job Angela, way to show those "cardio queens" what's up. My money is on you that you would beat them all in a 10k run also.
