I saw this news on Facebook and I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was a hoax, I thought it was just one of those actors we all joke about dying. To my sad surprise, it was true. CNN reports:
Speed was a factor in the crash, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said.
The wreck took place about 3:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. ET), about 300 yards from the office park where the event was held. The speed limit there is 45 mph.
Up and down the road near the crash site were burned rubber and doughnut marks as though someone smoked their tires in figure 8 patterns.
“I don’t know if the marks in the road are related to the crash,” said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Allen.
Deputies arrived at the scene to find a vehicle on fire, he said
Once fire crews put the flames out, they found two occupants, both of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.
This is literally based on Pat Flynn’s video. Check this out:
This is my new Saturday thing. I love it because it’s easy and hate it because it kills my thighs. Nevertheless, it feels great and is a good workout be it for cardio or for strength building.
Racism is a something we’ve all seen. Many people fail to consider that race isn’t a genetic class, but a synthetic classification of individuals with no scientifically variable facts. The term “Race” seemed to have stemmed from how people view other faces and ideas that we are not used or accustomed to. In U.S. history, the definition of the label “white” has modified over time, eventually adding groups.
Different groups, principally those that hailed from Africa, the ones we call Latinos, Native American, people from the Pacific, and the Asians, have found worldwide acceptance to be difficult. The irregular border of ethnicities touches instructional and economic chance, political illustration, also as financial gain, health and social quality of individuals of colour. This simply states how not being culturally “normal” can hinder the social acceptance of an individual in certain instances such as Africans being reduced to being slaves and how they are not allowed to be on the same level as the “whites” or how the Native Americans, the true founders of America, were treated as savages who only wanted to retain the lands their ancestors passed on to them.
Where does it all begin, you ask? There are several ideas thrown around on however racism began, although the reality lies within the history of man. Before individuals were ready to travel and had knowledge of the different kinds of “humans”, we had a tendency to preponderantly stay within the same reasonably space with pretty much the same individuals. As humans, we have a tendency to fear things that were totally different, and were lacked the ability to face those sorts of things. All this modified once we did, in fact, get this level of human advancement; however the worry never really went away. The reality is racism began as shortly as individuals faced those of various races. In this regard, humanity’s natural instinct is to fear the things it does not recognize as occurring naturally or is naturally peaceful. Humans have survived as the dominant species because of this instinct yet this primal instinct has now become the driver of human segregation or discrimination.
A little update on what’s been happening in my life. I thought about doing something like this since I feel that I owe a little bit of a legacy to leave behind even if it’s only in writing form. Maybe a few people might want to read something inside the head of someone who’s practically psycho!
I love training with kettlebells. I’ve been blogging about them like crazy over the past few weeks and all this because of the various benefits of training with them can do.
So with this kind of enthusiasm, I’ve been trying out new stuff lately. I’m just a few days fresh from my recent kettlebell achievement and I’ve been doing something new. Here’s my current routine for this month. I’ve been experimenting with ladder exercises and complexes for the past two years and I figured it’s about time I combine the two. I’ve seen a lot of videos and blogs regarding ladders and I haven’t really given ladders a try or maybe that much enthusiasm. Here’s my own version of a Kettlebell/Bodyweight Ladder-Complex (which I’ll call Ladder-Plex or LP). Consider that I only have about 20-25 minutes to do these in the morning because we all have to go to work!
With regards to my earlier post, I just finished my last set for my target of 5,000 swings. I finished it without skipping a day in my 6x a week routine. I actually felt like I became a better “swinger”. I also lost 18 lbs of weight and maybe around 6 lbs of body fat since my body feels tighter. I might get back to my old routine but I may also try out something new. I’ll give this a go in maybe January 2014 and then maybe I can get the 500 per day swings for the 10,000 kettlebell swing challenge.
In conjunction with a previous post I reblogged, I’ve been doing something similar to this program since September 28 2013. But as I attempted to do 500 swings per day, I noticed that my body couldn’t handle anything more than 250 at the time. Mind you, my allotted time for kettlebell training is not more than 30 minutes for 6 days. What I’ve done to modify this is to make it easier for me to transition into 500 a day. What I did was simply do 250 kettlebell swings. I convinced myself that logging a 32kg kettlebell, versus the 24kg recommended bell and the “no rest day” routine, will somehow offset this.
I've never tried Crossfit. I probably never will.
While it seems to be the latest thing that everyone is doing, I just know it's not for me.
From what I've seen of Crossfit, it has positive and negative aspects that definitely can't be overlooked.
I love the comradery of working in groups. I think it's awesome to be in the same room with people who are working towards similar goals.
The question I've heard most in just the last two weeks is, "So, what are you doing??"
I only have a few people with whom I freely talk to about the program. There are visible changes however, so people approach me. This doesn't mean I don't talk at all about it. I'll talk anyone's ear off who really seems to have an interest.
Slight confession . . . I had no part in the conception of this one, but it is a doozy, and worthy of your consideration. Also, as a warning, this is not a beginner’s workout. Not to say that it can’t be done, but we at CraseFit believe that good form is the foundation of effective movement, so make sure you can do a proper kettlebell swing with solid form before beginning to attempt this.
