This week we’re going to focus a lot on perceived exertion. Therefore when I ask for the efforts, please follow below:
Rate of Perceived Exertion Easy: Easy means easy. Moderate: Moderate effort means from a scale 1 to 10, I want you at five or six. Hard Effort: When I’m asking for hard/tempo effort I want you to scale from 1 to 10 I want you at seven or eight. Fast / Sprint: Go FAST but be smart and listen to your body!
Location: Tri Peak Athlete or via zoom. Address: 617 Virginia Dr, Orlando, Fl 32803

Healthy Snack Tip
Snack Time: 10 am or 3 pm
2 celery sticks
1 tbsp of peanut butter
Celery: Actually celery is one of the most alkaline foods you can eat! Research suggests that an alkaline diet lengthens life and prevents chronic diseases. Celery juice is highly nutritious. Celery is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin K and vitamin C. (Gabrielle, 2020)
Peanut Butter: Jump to Potential Health Benefits of Peanut Butter — Improved Heart Health One of the main fats in peanut butter is oleic acid. When substituted for other fats in your diet, oleic acid is shown to help maintain good cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. Managing these levels in your body can lower the risk of heart disease. Peanut butter also contains omega-6.
