I happen to be a big fan of food. I have found that eating clean isn’t a big challenge since I do my research and know what items are best to eat from the restaurants that I go to. In the case of Long Beach Fish Grill it is not too hard to find a healthy meal. I found out about this place 1 year ago. At that time I was living in Long Beach and I was driving around the area looking for a new place to eat. When I walked in to the restaurant I was greeted by a friendly staff. They handed me a menu and I was surprised with the variety they had. Besides fish plates, they also serve tacos, salads, soups, and sandwiches. My favorite meal from this place is the salmon with steamed vegetables and sweet potato fries. You can choose between garlic butter, Cajun, or teriyaki sauce as the seasoning for the fish you order. I usually don’t go with any seasoning and ask for some lemons to splash onto the fish. The price isn’t too bad at Long Beach Fish Grill. The range is anywhere between $9 and $11. If I remember correctly it costs a little more to substitute for sweet potato fries. If you don’t want to spend extra money they happen to have many sides to choose from (at no cost)and that is one thing I like about this place. I highly recommend this restaurant. Next time you happen to be near downtown Long Beach please be sure to stop by Long Beach Fish Grill.
Monday was a double lift day. The first lift was the press and that was followed by the front squat. No PRs were set on the lifts but some notable numbers were Tyler pressing 160lbs for 3 reps and Jon’s front squat of 275lbs. Once both lifts were completed athletes worked on their pull-ups. Michele and Shelley did body weight pull-ups which were both PRs.
Tuesday’s WOD was a version of “Filthy 50.” It consisted of 50 box jumps, 50 knees to elbows, 50 kettle bell swings, 50 double unders, 50 walking lunges, and 50 burpees. Paul K. finished the workout in 21:39. Tami finished in 16:00. Some athletes did the entire “Filthy 50.” The other movements added to the above were 50 good mornings, 50 push press, 50 jumping pull-ups, and 50 wall ball shots. Josh finished in 24:10. Anna flew through the WOD and finished with a time of 24:46.
The snatch was the lift for Wednesday. Tami worked on her bench press that day and she set a new PR by benching 93lbs for 1 rep. The WOD was a partner workout. Partner A would run 400 meters and once they returned Partner B would run the same distance. Partners would continue to do this run until each individual ran 4 times totaling 2 miles between the team. Mike S. and Mark finished in 12:31. Holley and Josh were right behind them and finished in 12:34.
Thursday was a mobility and recovery day. After rolling out and stretching athletes would then work on hang cleans and rope climbs.
Friday’s lift was the clean. Jon was able to lift 225lbs for 1 rep. The workout was “Diane.” This workout is a 21-15-9 of dead lifts and handstand pushups. Mike H. finished in 13:14 while using 225lbs as his dead lift weight. Stephanie improved her time while increasing her dead lift weight and using plates and an ab mat for her handstand pushups.
Please post any PRs that I may have missed.
