We will be meeting in St. Mary's Playground (click "map it") tonight at 6:45pm. The park is located about 2 blocks from the Smith and 9th Street subway station (F/G) on Smith Street between Nelson and Luquer.  Parking is usually available right next to the park.  The matted floor can get a little dirty so bring a towel if you'd like to stay clean.

St. Mary's is where CFSBK planted its roots.

Sunshine

"Although it may sound strange, we humans "eat" the sun as a nutrient.  Just as plants use sunlight to produce energy, the action of sunlight on our skin produces the "sunshine vitamin," natural vitamin D. The health benefits of this miraculous vitamin are legion, including building and strengthening bones, regulating calcium metabolism, influencing our mood, alleviating depression, boosting metabolism, and, amazingly enough, preventing the growth of cancers of the breast, colon, and prostate and even malignant melanoma"
-Dr. Micheal and Mary Eades
Protein Power Lifeplan

Take a pass on sunblock this summer and enjoy the natural relashionship between yourself and the primary catalyst of all life on earth, the Sun.  Ween in some sun-time everyday, if you're fair skinned a couple minutes may be enough at first. Remember to NEVER burn, this is your body's natural mechanism for saying "too much sun!" Better to cover up a little or find some shade than slop on some questionable sunblock and try to override what your skin is telling you.

"Fight Gone Bad"

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.
This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed
before repeating. We've used this in 3 and 5 round versions. The
stations are:



  1. Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps)

  2. Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps)

  3. Box Jump: 20" box (Reps)

  4. Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps)

  5. Row: calories (Calories)

The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of
"rotate," the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good
score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each
calorie is one point.
