Turkey TWOD this Friday at 10 AM!

By There are no tags 0 comments

Hmm, “Turkey TWOD” may be redundant, but in this season of excess, I’m sticking with it! Here is the TWOD for Friday:

 

1. “Hulk Salad” (modified)

8 minutes to establish max weight without removing hands from the bar:

2 Cleans (first from ground, second from hang; can be squat cleans, but they don’t count toward front squats)

2 Front Squats

2 Shoulder to Overhead

 

Rest 8 minutes, score is pounds successfully complexed.

 

2. “Super 88″ 

8 Rounds for Time (14 minute cap)

8 calorie row

8 Burpee box-jumps

 

Rest 8 minutes, score is reps completed plus 5 reps for every FULL minute under the cap.

 

3. “TB12″

AMRAP 12

1 HSPU or accumulate 15s in handstand hold

5 pull-ups

8 ball slams

3 push-ups

 

Score is total reps.

 

PHEW!

 

Peace and bacon grease!

Mickey

 

P.S. I can’t remember who I had this discussion with, but in 2013, Maroon 5 “became the third most-played artist on Top 40 Mainstream radio,” based on Clear Channel owned Mediabase, becoming one of the most successful acts of Interscope Records.[114]

Hopefully you have been practicing the breathing technique I outlined a few weeks ago. In the beginning it may seem odd or ineffective but if you stick with it daily, you will begin to notice some differences. One of the differences is the ability to tap into your Alpha Mind.

What is the Alpha Mind?

Alpha brain waves occur between 7 and 14 cycles per second – which is between sleeping and wakefulness. While functioning at this level, apart from the usual left brain activity, our right brain also gets activated. This makes a person’s thinking very powerful, very intuitive and very creative . This level connects us with our subconscious and helps us to access the amazing powers lying dormant there.

right-brain-left-brain

Imagine the kind of creativity you can tap into when your entire brain is available. This allows you to achieve things that you never dreamed possible, tapping into dormant brain powers that lie within each of us but few ever recognize. Practice of breathing and meditation for 15 minutes everyday improves memory and sharpens the mind.

How To Reach Your Alpha Mind

To tap into the hidden powers of your mind, you must learn the basics of meditation. To reach a state of alpha consciousness, you must first achieve a level of deep relaxation, completely removed from your worries and stressors. Your mind will wander to this and that. Training your mind to release these things requires tremendous willpower and regular practice. 

Sit with your eyes closed and make sure you have at least 15 uninterrupted minutes to practice your breathing. First exhale your breath through your nose so that your lungs are completely deflated to a count of 5. Then hold that for a count of 5. Next inhale through your nose for a count of 5 and then hold for another count of 5. Repeat this cycle until the 15 minutes is up.

If you notice your mind becoming distracted just refocus on your breathing. This act alone will bring you back to the task.

This doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why it’s so important to set aside a solid 15 minutes each day to focus on your breathing and meditations. This time will be used to focus your energies, clear your mind of the day’s thoughts and inch closer to a state of alpha consciousness.

Why Should YOU Try This?

Here is what I have noticed while I have been practicing my breathing and meditation daily for the last 4 weeks. I have noticed considerable improvement in my daily focus and productivity. I have been studying a lot for the business and I am beginning to formulate plans for its future to make it even better for you as our community and for the staff.

I have been sleeping more soundly and feeling more rested each day. On most days I am getting between 7.5-9 hours of high quality of sleep where previously I was only sleeping 5-6 hours per night. Dan G remarked the other morning that I appear to be the least stressed of any time that the gym was in the process of relocating. My training has improved and I have achieved positive changes in body composition. 

My relationships have improved because I am more patient with them. This makes me a better husband, father, boss, son, brother, and Coach. Generally, I am more fun to be around! HA!

So, what are you waiting for? Don’t allow your preconceived notions to allow you to miss out on something very powerful.

3, 2, 1…GO!
