Split Jerks Rock!!! And an awesome article about bogus fitness myths!!!

Today, we worked towards an even higher PR for our Split Jerks than last week. Many of our athletes accomplished this by becoming more confident and proficient in this awesome lift!!!! The gains were considerable and impressive!!! Good work guys!!!!

Here are a couple of videos from today!

 

 

Tolga split jerk’s 265lbs.(?)- no problem…A new PR!!!

Then:

Read this article about dispelling common fitness myths, including squats are bad for your knees and cardio is more important for losing weight than weight lifting. This article made me smile huge!!!! Thank you Nick Horton (and Becca Borowski for bringing it to my attention)!!!!http://breakingmuscle.com/training/7-fitness-myths-ie-total-bs-you-need-know

 Then, get excited about tomorrow…
