10 MYTHS ABOUT OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING THAT NEED TO STOP By Dresdin Archibald for Breaking Muscle (Dresdin Archibald is a 63-year-old accountant from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He started weight training in 1963 at age 14, moving over to the Olympic-lifts in 1966, and continues training to this day.)
THE DIRTY LITTLE SECRET OF THE FEMALE ATHLETE: CELLULITE “I bet you’re still wondering why some women – even thin, lean athletic women – tend to have lots of cellulite and their female counterparts do not. Genetics, my friend. If your connective tissue is put together differently than your friend’s, your skin is going to look different. Just like skin color, hair, and height are all genetically determined, so is your predisposition to cellulite. That’s right, Mother Nature decides if you are to be dimple free or not.
She must find the dimples cute because 85-98% of post-pubertal females have cellulite. Yes! That means almost all women have cellulite.
That’s a hard pill to swallow for a lot of us, including myself. Really? My cellulite is not my fault? These dimples don’t signal to the world that I’m a fatty? No. No. And No.“—Vanessa Bennington for Breaking Muscle
Workout of the Day
EMOM for 5 minutes:
Hang Power Clean @ 70% 1 rep max
EMOM means Every Minute On The Minute. This portion of the workout is designed to prime your central nervous system for the next part of the workout, nothing more.
30 minutes to establish 1 rep max Back Squat
The back squat workout begins with performing low rep sets (1-5 reps) with an empty bar then progressively increasing the weight. When the weight becomes challenging take at least 2 minutes in between squats, perform one back squat at a time. Those squatting more than twice their body weight are advised to use a lifting belt.
