Introducing a Workout that will blow your testosterone levels and you heart rate


Some time ago I started using cyclic workouts with well known exercise to replace my running for cardio. The style contained elements from strong lift, I mean big compound moves and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) because of the continues rotation between exercises without rest time.
I called it 666 because it's 6 rounds, 6 exercises per round and six reps per exercise. And you time it. So each of the six rounds is as below:

So 666 WOD

1st exercise: Front Squat (50kg) 6 reps
2nd exercise: Pull Ups (body weight) 6 reps
3rd exercise: Bench Press (80kg) 6 reps
4th exercise: Dead Lift (80kg) 6 reps
5th exercise: Barbell row (60kg) 6 reps
6th exercise: Overhead Press, standing with barrel (30kg) 6 reps

That is round one. You should do 5 more rounds without rest.
My personal best is 11 minutes and 15 secs 10 minutes and 25 seconds (28/1/2018). I am 82kg aged 42.
Try it out and let me know what you thing. Be good and strong ...

Let's start with athletic posture

So, hi everybody!

Let's see how we should start adding cafathletics with something interesting. What would be more interesting than assuring that our posture is correct?
What I mean is how we stand affects the way we do everything! How we live, work and exercise and therefore we should start paying importance to that.

Usually most people tend to duck. Round their shoulders and duck. How we fix that?
Well, believe me or not, I fixed this by doing barbell front squat and overhead squat. You see front squat forces your upper body to stand straight and not to duck, curve the neck and look down. Then Overhead squat forces your shoulders to rotate externally and allows thoracic extension s that you start getting used to that athletic posture.

I have selected the following videos from Youtube to take you through both front and overhead squat. Remember you don't need to load the barbell. As a matter of fact you need no weight to learn both exercises. Try get used to it only with the …
