Interesting tidbit: Guacamole originated from the Aztecs…gotta love them and the guac!  Below are nutrition benefits  of avocados which should help persuade to try eating them more often (try it for one week and see how you feel)…

  • They are a good source of protein.
  • Rich in potassium, even higher than bananas.
  • Cancer prevention (mouth, prostate and breast)
  • Eye health – higher in lutein (81 mcg per serving) than any other fruit – protects against cataracts & macular degeneration.
  • Lowers cholesterol – high in beta-sisosterol which has proven to lower cholesterol levels.
  • High in folate, monounsaturated fats & glutathione (good for heart health)
  • Antiaging – because they are rich in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that helps slow down the aging process keeping the body healthier
  • Highest fruit source of vitamin E
  • High in fiber, folic acid, B6, C, and copper
  • Good for blood pressure because of the potassium

Behind the Neck Press: Set up grip 6 inches from your regular press position. The goal with the BTN press is to load more weight than is possible in the regular press position. This is possible because you don’t have to worry about getting your chin out of the way. Remember to fix your elbows below the bar, engage your back muscles, and squeeze your belly tight.
