Score is the last completed round

I saw this shared on Facebook. Now I know I am biased to strength training but for good reason. Now before anyone has there say about how good running is I just want to say this…. Running is good in small doeses, when we run in an excesive amount there will be more negative effects then postive effects unless you are an edurance athlete you don't need to run everyday for heaps and heaps of Kms. Also in saying that I beleive all runners should be doing a strength program. This doesn't have to be CrossFit but what we do here is a great option as we have a mix of strength and endurance. Anyway I want to say again I am not having a go at running I just don't beleive everyone who is after general health and wellbeing needs to run 5kms a day…. 
Last note strength training makes you awesome…… 🙂

    Running km on end just face it is boring if your going to exert energy why wouldn't you do something different each day strength training all the way

    To say that strength training 'çures' parkinsons disease, diabetes (especially TYPE 1) and arthritis is a joke. Yuck
