IM by set

Last time, we told you that we were now AdvoCare distributors.  I’m going to tell you about my favorite product today, Spark.  Remember, feel free to skip this and just go down to the workout.

I took this first part straight off the website:

Directions for Use:
For ages 18 and older.
Blend, shake or stir contents of one pouch or one level scoop into 8 fluid ounces of water.

CAUTION:
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Pregnant or nursing women should consult a healthcare professional prior to use. Not for use by persons who are sensitive to caffeine or choline.

AdvoCare Spark® contains 120mg of caffeine.”

Spark comes in either packets (14 pouches per box) or a canister (42 servings) in these flavors:

Watermelon, Mango Strawberry, Pink Lemonade, Mandarin Orange, Fruit Punch, Grape, Green Apple.  I’m going to be honest, I do not like the mango strawberry or green apple.  I really don’t like anything that tastes like green apples except actual green apples.  I also don’t like mangos and I felt like that was the main flavor that came through.  My favorite flavors are grape and fruit punch.  I love to add these to my water to use during my daily workouts and/or in the afternoons.

Practice of champions

KC’s baseball season starts in 4 days and we cannot wait!  We’re still the champs until October.  Here’s a practice to remember our champions:)

Also, we’re now AdvoCare distributors.  They have products to help with weight loss, energy, performance and wellness.  We’re huge fans of Spark.  You just add it to your water.  It’s so good.  If you live in the US, are 18 or older and want to purchase any products, here’s our link.  We’ll occasionally talk about the different products on here.  If you’re not interested, just ignore that part and skip down to the workouts.

1738

royals

We’re from Kansas City and we are so, so, so proud of our Royals. They are just a lot of fun to watch, partially because you can tell that they like each other and they are genuinely having fun.

One of the things the players did this year was to use “1738” in their interviews.  If they didn’t, they fined each other.  You can read why in these two articles:

1. http://www.foxsports.com/kansas-city/story/royals-fetty-wap-and-how-1738-is-taking-over-the-kc-clubhouse-072915

2. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/the-royals-are-saying–1738–in-interviews-because-they-love-fetty-wap-211924083.html

We have a new member in our family, Cain (named after Lorenzo Cain), aka 1738.

Here’s our 1738 workout (the cool down would be a 125 plus 1/2 a pool length):

Underwater travel = streamlined underwater butterfly kick, coming up for air as needed.

Descending in time = swim progressively faster for each set.  In this workout, the first 100 would be your slowest, the second, third and forth would get progressively faster and the fifth 100 would be your fastest.

10×50 free on the 1:30 (2 fast 50s and then 1 slow 50, repeat until you’ve done 10 50s)
