75% x 2 reps x 6 sets
Each rep should start from a static start, no dynamic reps! Today’s strength work should not be terribly challenging in terms of load, given it’s week 1 but try to perform a work set every 90 seconds or so. If you don’t have %s to go off of, shoot for doubles at a weight that feels like a moderately challenging weight for two reps each set.
A: AMRAP Double Unders
B: AMRAP Wall Walks
C: AMRAP Dual KB Pendlay Rows
This workouts out to 5 rounds per movement. Pace yourself such that you can keep the reps somewhat consistent. Don’t go all out on every set. Find a cruising pace and try to stay there.
Masala Mama Pop Up Open a Couple more Weeks!
CFSBKer Nidhi J has a few more weeks of her pop-up restaurant just a couple blocks from the gym at Michael & Ping’s restaurant at 437 3rd Ave (between 7th and 8th street, right next to my favorite pie place, Four & Twenty Blackbirds). They’ve got a new lunch menu she would love you to try as well!
The menu is vegetarian, simple and delicious, cooked with a light hand and with lots of plant-based options. In keeping with the Masala Mama philosophy, everything is prepared with quality ingredients, fresh produce and attention to detail. What makes our food special is our use of artisanal paneer, sourdough naan, hand-crafted tofu from Bridge, freshly roasted spices and extra virgin olive oil. Even our chutneys and relishes are made in-house.
There’s no table service but we do have counter service and seating for those who want to eat in. Beer is available for on-premises consumption, and you can bring your own wine for a $10 corkage fee. You can see the food menu and order online (MasalaMamaNYC.com) for pickup or delivery within a limited radius. We’re also available on Doordash with a wider delivery area, Grubhub and other platforms.
