The Versatility of Pyramid Training | StrongFirst

"Because the pyramid is really just a progressive training system that is only limited by your imagination, I like to do them for different types of workouts."

strongfirst.com TwitterShare This workout is likely as old as the pushup itself and I am not sure who created it. Maybe the Aztecs or Egyptians. Who knows? Pythagoras was into triangles and math so maybe the Greeks. Whoever invented it, it has been a classic workout of mine since the 80s, when I learned it in […]

Avoid Burnout and Increase Awareness Using Ultradian Rhythms

I'm sure we've all heard the term Cercadian Rhythm. But have you heard of Ultradian Rhythms? Best Buy's WellTalk this week shared some insights!

Ultradian rhythms are defined as rhythms that are shorter than 24 hours. These daytime rhythms are the inverse of the REM sleep-cycle rhythms that humans go through during the night, there is typically a roughly 90-minute period of rest followed by a 20-minute period of activity (REM).

Try for yourself!
-Get a journal
-Set a timer for 30 minutes
-Record your energy, focus and mood when the timer goes off
-Take a 5-minute break
-Record how your feel after the break
-Increase the time of each period until your energy, focus and mood ratings seem optimal for you

Best Buy WellTalk sessions are hosted monthly on the 2nd Tuesday at 2:00pm via Microsoft Teams live. Best Buy employees and contractors may email [email protected] to receive outlook calendar invites.
