Fresh Finds 008

Happy Monday! 

Here are your Fresh Finds for this week: 

  1. A true test of your shoulder strength with the KB Bottoms Up Press. This is a powerhouse of an exercise. This week, it exposed some of the weaknesses in my chain. If you don’t have access to much weight, this is the perfect lift for you - 25 lbs is considered heavy. Check out the instructional video here. 
  2. The easiest baked cinnamon sweet potatoes ever. We came up with our own recipe on the spot, but you can follow a simple one here. If you want resistant starches as a pre-biotic, chill your taters a bit before reheating and eating. If you want to know what resistant starches are, read more here.  
  3. Any person capable of angering you becomes your master; he can anger you only when you permit yourself to be disturbed by him.” Source: Epictetus
  4. Your body’s favorite kind of “hanging out”. I first read about the ‘art’ of brachiating this week, and besides the convincing science of our shoulders’ anatomical similarities to our primal tree-faring ancestors, it is shown to help strength, mobility, pain relief, and more. Read up on the old way of hanging here.
