Test Your Metal: Introducing Valeria Tim Henriques, writing for TMuscle.com, throws the gauntlet down with his own CrossFit inspired workout, "Valeria". The article is worth reading and "Valeria" looks good to try. Be warned: this workout includes…CURLS! Mr. Henriques doesn't subscribe to the "curls are for girls" theory. We are intrigued and can't wait to try it, curls and all!
Here's the workout:
Valeria – Workout for Time (Elite Level):
Bench Press: 275 x 21 reps
Deadlift: 405 x 21 reps
Pull-ups: +50 lbs x 21 reps
EZ Bar Curls: 135 x 21 reps
Not to fear, the article includes a chart containing three levels of scaling and the chart includes what weight to use per exercise according to your gender and bodyweight.
Fasting Makes You Active (IF) or Intermittent Fasting goes against convential wisdom, but this article from Mark Sisson of Mark's Daily Apple is informative and makes a good argument for fasting. Mark has links to other informative articles on the subject.
