Workout

“Eva”
Five rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
30-2 pood Kettlebell swings
30- Pull-ups
Sometimes you have to take it back to the old days and grind out a nice long met-con to prove to yourself that your mind is as tough as it needs to be. If you need this, you’ll know it.

I am only asking for 3 rounds for those that have been with us for 6 months or fewer.

Workout
 
“Eva”
for time:
5x
800M run or 1000M row
30 – 2 pood KB Swings
30 – Pull-ups
 
This, like Murph, is likely to be an hour workout for most. SCALE this to you current abilities. Please use a smaller KB, do fewer reps and or do fewer than 5 rounds.
 
If this is your first attempt, it might be a good idea to give yourself a time target. Work as hard as you can for a predetermined amount of time. Try 40:00 as a cutoff, for example. It will repeat so you will get another chance…
 
Interesting read from The Stone Health Newletter.  The Mayo Clinic suggests doctors treat lack of exercise as a medical condition.
 

Should doctors treat lack of exercise as a medical condition? Mayo expert says ‘yes’

 ROCHESTER, Minn. — A sedentary lifestyle is a common cause of obesity (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/obesity/DS00314), and excessive body weight and fat in turn are considered catalysts for diabetes (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes/DS01121), high blood pressure (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/high-blood-pressure/DS00100), joint damage (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/arthritis/DS01122/DSECTION=risk-factors) and other serious health problems. But what if lack of exercise itself were treated as a medical condition? Mayo Clinic physiologist Michael Joyner, M.D. (http://mayoresearch.mayo.edu/mayo/research/staff/joyner_mj.cfm), argues that it should be. His commentary is published this month in The Journal of Physiology (http://jp.physoc.org/).

Physical inactivity affects the health not only of many obese patients, but also people of normal weight, such as workers with desk jobs, patients immobilized for long periods after injuries or surgery, and women on extended bed rest (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/pregnancy/PR00107) during pregnancies, among others, Dr. Joyner says. Prolonged lack of exercise can cause the body to become deconditioned, with wide-ranging structural and metabolic changes: the heart rate may rise excessively during physical activity, bones and muscles atrophy, physical endurance wane, and blood volume decline.

When deconditioned people try to exercise, they may tire quickly and experience dizziness or other discomfort, then give up trying to exercise and find the problem gets worse rather than better.

“I would argue that physical inactivity is the root cause of Read more Thursday 120816
