Then get to work with a roller or lacrosse ball and loosen up your hips and shoulders. Get in some rotational stretches for your torso and hips as well. TAKE YOUR TIME.

3 Rounds:
5 Shoulder Press (65/95#)
5 Push Press
5 Push Jerk
15 Box Jump
200 meter run

*A round starts every 5 minutes. Time each round. Score is your total time.

If everyone were clothed with integrity, if every heart were just, frank, kindly, the other virtues would be well-nigh useless, since their chief purpose is to make us bear with patience the injustice of our fellows. ~Jean Baptiste Molière


Bacon-Wrapped Sweet Potatoes-2


yams or sweet potatoes – 2 medium

nitrate-free bacon – about 9 slices


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Cut yams lengthwise into roughly the same size wedges. I ended up with 8 wedges per yam. If you have a larger yam, you can make more wedges.
Use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut bacon in half lengthwise. I find that a thinner cut of bacon works best.
Wrap each wedge with a bacon slice.
Lay slices in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, then use tongs to flip the wedges, and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.
