Cook some organic chicken breast on a non-stick pan with a little bit of olive oil. Once the chicken is about 90% done you can add a generous helping of swiss chard and asparagus into the mix. I prefer to broil the asparagus with oil, pepper and garlic for about 10 minutes before I add it to the pan but that's really only to preserve some texture.
Season with some pepper and lemon before enjoying. If you're zoning you may want to add some fruit for dessert. Preferably berries.
This meal took about 15 minutes from start to finish.

20 OH Sit-Ups

Here is the "Muscle-Up Formula" from the 6pm Class:
Pull-Up + Transition + Dip = Muscle-Up
Pull-up = False Grip + Full ROM pulling strength
Transition = Technique + Rotational Strength
Dip = Full ROM pushing strength + Ring Support

Why your elbows must stay in front of the bar during Presses.

Actualizaciones

We've added a few new Beginner's Classes to our program!

Here is a detailed list of all our class times:

Beginner's Class Schedule
Monday: 6pm (Free for Foundation's Participants)
Wednesday: 6pm
Saturday: 11:15am
Sunday: 11am

Group Class Schedule
Monday: 7pm
Wednesday: 7pm
Saturday: 10:15am
Sunday: 12pm

We are now offering Weekly Unlimited Class Cards for 50$. If you go to 4 classes per week you save 30$, if you attend 3 classes per week you save 10$. Your may use the card for either Group or Beginner classes.

Athletes are encouraged to come early or stay late (depending on which class they participate in) and work on a skill or performance deficit in an open gym atmosphere. We all have things that we need to work on and this is a great opportunity to do just that. For example If your strength is lacking you may choose to supplement your training with some additional Back Squatting. Maybe you're after that first muscle up and need to work your transition and pulling strength, go for it. Are you tight? Spend an extra 20 minutes doing mobility drills and open up those joints.
Note: The running class gets equipment and space priority.

Monday night beginner classes will now be FREE for anyone who has completed any of our Foundation's Program cycles.

Foundations Cycle 3
We have confirmed the dates for our next cycle of the Foundation's Program. Classes have been scheduled for every Sunday at 1pm for the following 6 weeks (5/18, 5/25, 6/1, 6/8, 6/15, and 6/22).  Interested participants should send me a confirmation email so that we can solidify your slot.

The program will cost 180$ which must be paid either in cash or check (made out to David Osorio) by the second class. Students will receive a digital syllabus including a program overview, homework assignments and additional educational resources.

Space is limited and filling up FAST.
