Kaizen: April 13-19, 2020

When I started my new training log book, I called it Ton of Fun, because one of my goals was a six-lift (squat, bench, clean, deadlift, press, snatch) of 2,000 pounds. When I started this latest journey, it was 1285. When you consider I have totalled more than 1,500 in a three-lift powerlift (squat, bench, deadlift), you start to understand some of the life choices I have made over the years. However, this week, I just changed the name to Kaizen, japanese for the concept of continuous improvement. It’s nothing original in the fitness world to adapt this word. Katrin … Continue reading Kaizen: April 13-19, 2020

The Book Nook–Dottir

My Journey To Becoming A Two-Time CrossFit Games Champion, by Katrin Davidsdottir Katrin Davidsdottir has been to the top of the mountain within her world, twice. As a two-time CrossFit Games champion, and a member of the Dottirs with Annie Thorsdottir and Sara Sigmundsdottir, her name is synonymous with badass females within the fitness world. My attention span with the Games had waned by the time Katrin had ascended to the top, so I was only tangentially aware of her story. Still, I followed her on Instagram, and saw her post about her autobiography. I decided to buy it. Admittedly, … Continue reading The Book Nook–Dottir

Covid-19? More Like CoFit-19

I’m part of a health and fitness Facebook group my friend Kathy Book started a while back. It is a good community, full of recipes, workouts, interesting articles, questions, community, encouragement, and all that razzmajazz that helps one stay on the right path. Earlier today, Kathy posed the question–What is in your Coronovirus workout playlist? Well, my inner nerddom alarm started blaring. Music plus working out, with a theme? Yep, I’m in. I quickly thought of about 10 in the first 30 seconds. I started to post some videos in her post, but quickly knew “Weez, this needs to be … Continue reading Covid-19? More Like CoFit-19
