Monday

Lift: Overhead Squat
5-5-5-3-3-3-1-1-1

WOD:
AMRAP 20
7 Handstand Push-Ups
12 L-Pull-Ups

The Paleo challenge starts next Monday the 17th.  There will be a fee of $20 to join and all money will go into the pot for the prizes!  There will be a sign-up sheet in the gym with the guidelines.  You must send us a before photo in a swimsuit or something similar (and then an after photo, of course!) which we will not share unless you give us permission.   You must do at least one benchmark WOD before and after the challenge.  (We have a good one coming up this Tuesday!)  You will get points for posting your Paleo meals to comments, and please, share your recipes there, too.  There will be bonus points for other things, like class attendance. 

We will have a kick-off party on this Friday after the 5:30 pm class - bring a dish to share and Paleo drinks.  Sorry, beer is not Paleo.  :(  At the party Chelsea will demonstrate how easy it is to make almond milk.

Another take on Paleo:  Paleo 2.0.  "I coined the term “evolutionary metabolic milieu” or EM2, to signify that we cannot hope to duplicate the exact diet that was eaten, for all of these reasons. Instead, we can strive to use science and our reasoning to emulate the important elements of the evolutionary metabolic environment - the internal environment of our bodies."  This is very long, but in essence Dr. Kurt Harris says, don't eat gluten and don't eat processed foods.
