Workout of the Day
Three rounds, 15-12-and 9 reps, for time of:
For weighted pull-ups, use a weight vest, dip belt, or place a dumbbell between the legs above crossed ankles.
We will be closed this weekend while hosting a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Course
Note: We are no longer going to routinely post the "Hero" workouts from crossfit.com. This is not from lack of respect to those heroes and heroines. There are several reasons. These workouts are almost always very lengthy painstorms that we think should be done relatively rarely. As the years have rolled by the Hero workouts have increased in number and frequency to the point that, in our opinion, they occur too often, and many are appropriate only for the most advanced. Feel free to do them if you wish, but they will rarely be posted as the group workout.
TED Talks: Cynthia Kenyon, Experiments that hint of longer lives. In the end the talk focuses on the role of insulin and IGF-1 (insulin like growth factor) in cellular aging and possible drug and gene manipulation strategies to limit these effects. What is not talked about are diet strategies to control insulin.
