As you look at the semester ahead, try to manage your time wisely so that you can get all your work done in a timely manner AND get to bed at a reasonable time! If you routinely stay up until after midnight, it makes it harder for you to get in the gym at 0530 and over time the lack of sleep will negatively effect your performance in the gym and in the classroom! Both your mind and body need sufficient sleep for optimal performance! Can you get away with sleeping 4 - 6 hours every night? You certainly can, but your academic and physical performance will be measurably less than if you could get 6 - 8 hours of sleep every night. Roommate keep you up late? Drag them to Black and Gold with the early crew and I can guarantee they will be tired enough to go to bed at a reasonable hour!
Okay, enough preaching to the choir! See you all in the morning for the WOD!
As for the photo contest, voting was extremely close, but Erin M. won by ONE VOTE!!!!! Every vote counts in this race! Thanks to all contributors and voters!!!
Cindy - AMRAP 20 - compare to 17 JAN 2011
5 x pull-ups
10 x push-ups
15 x air squats (touch and go your butt to a med ball to ensure full range of motion)
NOTE: This is a killer workout and your hands can get punished if you are not careful. Tape your hands, use chalk, wear lifting gloves, etc.
NOTE2: Pull-ups can either be strict or kipping with hands facing anyway you want (towards you, away, or mixed) - start with arms fully extended and get your chin above the bar. Push-ups - touch your chest to the ground and then go to full lock out with arms.
Scaling options - you can use jumping pull-ups or green assistance band if needed to maintain intensity; for push-ups you can drop to your knees;
