The winter olympics start tonight, and to get you excited about that here is a profile on the entirety of the Mexico ski team. Read more about him here.

135 lbs. Sumo Deadlift High Pull
Pull to inverted hang and lower as slow as possible.
Workout is not for time.

SDLHP standard is pull to chin. Try and keep your body as straight as possible on the pull to inverted hang. On both the raise and the lower try and keep your body, arms and legs as straight as you can. This is not a timed workout but it is a good bit of work, work quickly and efficently but with enough rest to ensure solid reps and keep an eye on the clock.

Remember the Paleo Potluck tonight! Church of the Atonement, 7:30 pm. (find directions here). If you'd like to come please bring something strict paleo (No dairy, no grains, no legumes) if you haven't gotten the Evite and replied let us know down in the comments if your coming and what you're bringing. Unfortunately due to the weather we've thought it best to push this back one week to the 19th same time, same place.
We will be open this afternoon for 4,5 and 6 pm.

Just to re-enforce the goodness that is Paleo check out This is why you're fat. It's sort of like watching a train wreck, you want to go get help, but you can't look away.

We are still open this afternoon despite the inclement weather.
