1st Muscle-up

"The muscle-up is astonishingly difficult to perform, unrivaled in building upper body strength, a critical survival skill, and most amazingly of all, virtually unknown." - Greg Glassman, from the CrossFit Journal article "The Muscle-up"

"...when it comes to diet, there are bound to be a few areas that everyone agrees with. Real food that doesn’t come in a box is best... Vegetables can and should be enjoyed freely... And, while we’re not fruitarians... we modern Primals do eat reasonable amounts of certain fruits."

"The areas where we virulently disagree – on saturated fat (and dietary fat in general), on red meat, on grains and legumes – are incredibly divisive. You can shun processed foods and eat organic and no one will argue against it, but once you bust out the jar of freshly rendered lard, the bacon, and the eight egg omelets while failing to produce a single cereal grain-based item, everyone becomes a nutritionist/cardiologist/dietitian."

An excerpt from another great post by Mark Sisson on his site, Mark's Daily Apple.
 
Playing Catch

Stand facing the opposite direction as your partner.  When you receive the ball, rotate and throw over your shoulder to return.  Maintain a strong base with your feet.  Feel hips, spine, shoulders, elbows and wrists rotate and extend sequentially to the target.  Look where you're throwing before you throw.  Maintain a neutral spine throughout.
