There were a few offline podcasts that are now available again. Episodes 80-110 may have had problems for some people. If so, refresh or reload and listen!

In this episode:

Dumbbell or kettlebell power cleans with fixed dumbbell handles (thick-handled, with rotating sleeves are a different story) can cause injury to the spine, shoulder, elbows and wrists. The main point is that the risks of performing the dumbbell power clean far outweigh the potential benefits.

MOTIVATION
Eliminate boredom with workouts by using some fun techniques to challenge your knowledge and your body!

NUTRITION
A question posted on the Facebook Fan page from Gina,
"Eating on the go? I just started law school and finding the time to make healthy quick meals is becoming a challenge. "
The answer in this episode!
