Thankfully all of our barbells spin because we don’t have to battle humidity and we regularly oil them. A few of you are guilty of walking away before the coach has finished talking. Your coach doesn’t ramble on because they like taking, they are trying to share helpful and useable information with you. #respecttherambling 🙌🏼 #Repost@constantlyvariedfitness
2 fanny packs will be given to the winners!! *
Standard size donuts yall. Not donettes or cheerios.
1. First donut must be swallowed. The athlete May drink water, milk, or any liquid they want to. If you want to have fun and are of age, you may even drink white claw.
2. 110m row after the first donut is swallowed. You cannot row 100m and then just have it roll into the extra 10 m. You must row 110 m.
3. Once the row machine indicates that you have reached 110m, you may have someone hand you a donut or just reach for a donut yourself for that donut to also be consumed.
The timer ends when the athlete opens their mouth to show that the donut has been swallowed.
Post the video with the hashtag #ul19point7 and we will repost em all!
Contest ends 9/25 5pm pst. *

So this morning I went on a morning run like a normally do, listening to my favorite collection of podcasts. During one of the podcasts the host was jokingly saying that in his experience; training and recovery start to become increasingly difficult after age 28.
I remember just laughing because not too long ago (I’m 28 now) I could pretty much “cold turkey” anything without getting injured or quickly recover from strenuous exercise in a matter of hours not days. Nowadays Im pretty meticulous with my warmups and make sure everything is “ready to go” before doing anything.
In the midst of my laughter I heard a loud audible pop coming from my right quadricep. I dropped mid-run and immediately grabbed my leg. I knew I had just pulled my quad, I shook my head and laughed. This was karma biting me straight in my ass or this case my quad.
Long story, short. Take care of your body because it’s the only place you get to live. Warmup properly before exercise, stay hydrated, eat “real” foods, get proper rest and always try to learn.
The only way one can master a skill is by spending a good amount of time sucking at it. More importantly, being okay with that fact that it is not a skill at the moment but believing that soon it will be.
Today, I felt like shit, because instances in my life kept indicating that I’m not gifted like other people and I have to spend more time than others to learn something new or finesse something old. So naturally, I started reading about it and I came across some very interesting blogs and researches done by academics that suggest the following;
When you suck at a lot of things, you automatically become more hard working to get better. Yes, it humbles you but it also makes you stronger and you learn so much more in the process. Sometimes, its a blessing in disguise. It also leads to something called the Growth Mindset by Carol Dweck. (I’ve talked about this before) but it enables you to rise in the face of adversity.
