Two (2) Information Packed Newsletters from Olympian Doug Lewis and ELITEAM
Once again, our friend and MAASRA partner, Olympian Doug Lewis, has sent us his ELITEAM newsletters. They are jam packed with interesting information that will benefit all of us who read them. Think of it, 180,000 Burpees and another of Doug's amazing, personal accomplishments - a 100 mile trail run, climbing 26,000 feet, in - get this - under 26 hours.
And, there is more... the importance of sleep, the new Food Labels, bodyweight exercises, focus.... Click here for the 1st newsletter and here for the second to take you to the newsletters. (Be sure to read both.)
The dog days of summer are upon us. You know them, the dog days or dog days of summer are the hot, sultry, humid days of late summer. “DOG DAYS,” I, as many others, always thought the name came from those summer days so devastatingly hot that even dogs would lie around on the asphalt, panting.
he phrase actually had nothing to do with dogs, or even with the lazy days of summer. Instead, it turns out, the dog days refer to the dog star, Sirius, and its position in the heavens - but... they can still be hot!
Learn how to hydrate!
NOTE: "Tabata Tuesday" summer session is over. Hope all of you who took advantage and participated enjoyed the workouts, feel stronger, are ready for winter.
This week's Tabata was another great one. The "warning," YOUR ABS WILL BE ON FIRE AFTER THIS 100-REP CORE-BLASTING WORKOUT was absolutely ture.
With school starting, fall sports in full swing, everyone has enough on their plates... for now.
Continue to always:
Try your hardest,
Do only what you can do,
Do not strain yourself if you find it difficult,
Don't forget to rest... fully recover....

All are good reads... don't skip them.
*** WARNING ***
It's summer. We've just been through a heat wave and it looks like we're in for another! One subject that always comes up is hydration and recovery after a workout.
Don't take the heat lightly, it can be dangerous. Maybe this will help explain some things.
