Complete 3 rounds for time of:
- 40 push presses (95/65#)
- 30 Russian twists (25/15#)
- 20 sumo deadlift high pulls (95/65#)
WOD Notes: Plan on completing the first set of push presses in no more than 3 sets and choose the weight accordingly. For today, 1 touch right + 1 touch left = 1 Russian twist.
Nutrition Note: Day 15 of 40. Sugar 301. The glycemic index is a system of assigning a number to carbohydrate-containing foods that indicates how quickly the carbs break down into glucose and enter your blood stream. A simple way of thinking about glycemic index is it tells you how much a particular food will spike your blood sugar. The smaller a food’s glycemic index, the less impact it will have. A value of 100 is the value for pure glucose. Foods that are close to how they’re found in nature tend to have a lower glycemic index than refined and processed foods. Also, foods that include some protein and fat tend to have a lower glycemic index. Of course, glycemic index shouldn’t be the only thing you consider when making choices about what to eat. Calories, vitamins, and minerals are important too! (For example, potato chips have a lower glycemic index than oatmeal… but oatmeal has more nutrients.) Lastly, remember that portion sizes matter. The more carbs you eat, no matter the glycemic index, the more they’ll affect your blood sugar.
