The Power Clean

We had some people struggling with the Clean and Jerk during the "This is Sparta" workout earlier this week.  The following video shows Sage Burgener "sticking" the Power Clean with her father, Mike Burgener, giving the voice-over coacing points.

Food and Moods

Food is a drug - a powerful one - that all of us take numerous times a day in small and large doses.  Some people are more sensitive to how their body reacts to the food they eat while others have become become numb to their bodies response to food.  For those of you that are still eating breakfast at Burger King, lunch at McDonalds, and dinner at Chipolte - you may want to watch the following video! :)

No Arms, No Legs, No Worries

I've watched this video a handful of times and it continues to strike a chord with me.  No matter how bad a day you are having, nomatter how sorry you are feeling for yourself over work, school, the kids, etc., you will not have to struggle with the simplest of tasks like Nick has done his whole life.  Watch it through to the end and see how someone who has struggled to make a life for himself has given so much more than most of us can, or will, during our lifetime.
