Week 3 of the deadlift program.  Make sure and bring last weeks numbers so you can try and improve on the weights used last week.  Also, there is new glute work after the lifting portion!

Many of us food prep in advance for the week ahead.  Though sometimes time consuming, it really makes staying on plan a lot easier when all the food is prepped and ready to go.  The website, Greatist.com, had a really good article this weekend on some tools that can make the whole food prepping process a lot easier.  

Click Here for a link to the article which has links to the products and where they can be purchased if you’re in need of some tools that will make your food prepping less anxiety filled.  Below are a few of the products discussed in the article and some reasons why they are beneficial to your food prepping needs. 

Quirky Cutting Board With Storage Containers
This sleek cutting board from Quirky is the ideal chopping block for a meal-prepper. Chop veggies and slide them into one of three drawers located underneath the board, and boom, tidy storage until the next step of your recipe.

New Star Heavy Duty Three-Slice Egg Slicer
Whether you’re slicing hard-boiled eggs to top a lunchtime salad, dicing mushrooms for a dinner side, or cutting a few strawberries to toss in your morning cereal, this New Star heavy duty slicer is the answer. Our favorite part is that you don’t need to dirty a cutting board.

Cuisinart Two-Speed Hand Blender
Soup is a meal-prepper’s dream, but for recipes that require puréeing, the Cuisinart hand blender is a must. No more blending soup in batches in an upright blender; a hand-held version gets the job done right in the pot. PS. Using one also means there’s less to wash.

Bentgo Stackable Lunch Box
So you spent the weekend meal-prepping; now it’s time to eat. Fill these stackable lunch tins (with built-in plastic flatware) from Bentgo and you’ll be the envy of your office.

Wilton Silicone Muffin Pan
Whether you’re baking off a tray of classic blueberry or on-trend egg muffins, you’re going to need a stellar muffin tin. This silicone version from Wilton is easy to clean and stain-resistant. Want to know our favorite way to use it? For making multiple hard “boiled” eggs in the oven—oh yeah, it’s a thing!

If you have any other must have tools, be sure and post them to the comments section.
