Last week’s WOW was put in the comment thread of the previous post. I worked out yesterday at UE with Wendy while the kids carried out their paid janitorial gig.
Wendy’s WOW: MedX Compound Row (with SS cam), MedX Chest Press, SS Systems Pulldown, MedX Overhead Press, MedX Leg Press, Calf Press on MedX Leg Press, TSC Neck Flex/Ext
My WOW: SS Systems Pulldown, MedX Chest Press, SS Systems Neck Flexion, Nautilus Pullover with SS retrofits, MedX Compound Row, SS Systems Neck Extension, MedX Leg Press. Workout T-Shirt is the Ideal Exercise Vision Test taken from the Ren and Stimpy cartoon where they joined the army. Pictures are available on Instagram ultimate_exercise_.
Sticking to my theme of being hooked on myokines, I am attaching the following full text article on the relationship of myokines and exercise to decreasing cancer risk and for treating the cachexia of cancer. We have had several cancer patients at UE who have had great results training through their diagnosis, much of their chemo and after their chemo is complete. In the future I believe high intensity strength exercise will be a very big part of both oncology care and cancer prevention.
Post your WOW’s and your thoughts.
