First a magnificent miscellany of super cool news:
- Attack on the pentagon results in discovery of new mathematical tile: Three geniuses at the University of Washington Bothell discovered the first new pentagonal tiling in 30 years. Geometry is super cool. And coming soon to a tiled bathroom near you.
- Speaking of bathrooms, turns out coffee fights bowel cancer. My innards must be damn shiny. Coffee is super cool.
- It sort-of-almost seems like Hilary Clinton told representatives of the Black Lives Matter movement that they should stop making such a ruckus and be content to vote on stuff. Bernie Sanders says things that are much cooler.
- Islamic leaders call for action on climate change. A couple of months back, the Vatican did pretty much the same. If the Southern Baptist Convention would stop denying the science, we might be able to say they’re super cool.
Now for your Cabal Fang workout of the day, one that’s a little more of a slow burn than the usual all-out ball-buster (I told you I was going to dial down the intensity a little).
PTDICE Half Pyramid‡ to 9 of: Steam Engines, Fist Push-ups, Back Crunches, Zombie Squats, Staggered Push-ups, Twisters, Regular Squats (this should take about 19 minutes).
Heavy Bag Half Pyramids: 5 x 3:00/1:00: Each round complete as many sequences as you can of 1 punch, 2 punches, 3,4,5, etc. up to 9 followed immediately by 1 kick, 2 kicks, 3,4,5, etc. up to 9 (dis-including the last 1: 00 break, this will take 19 minutes also).
A Half Pyramid is 1 of each, 2 of each, 3 of each, etc. up to the max count. A Half Pyramid to 9 is a total of 45 exercises. Where p = the peak, the formula is p(p+1)/2. In this case, that would be 9(9+1)/2 = 45. Math is super cool.
