Supplement Spotlight

“All aboard the Gain Train”

BlackMarket Labs

L-Citrulline

 Are you doing your bicep curls RX? If not, look no further than our Blackmarket Labs L-Citrulline. You’ve probably seen this product in many of the pre-workout supplements that we carry, but might not understand the benefits of this great amino acid. When it comes to crossfit, oxygen delivery is the name of the game. Our high intensity workouts deprive our working tissues of oxygen, which forces us to take recovery breaks mid-WOD.

Blackmarket Labs RAW L-Citrulline

Our exhaustion is a direct result of blood ammonia and lactate levels beginning to spike. L-Citrulline has been found to blunt the rise of blood ammonia and lactate. This great product is also often used as a pumping agent for bodybuilders! Citrulline has the ability to convert to other amino acids that assist in giving you sleeve stretching muscle pump! So if you use L-Citrulline don’t hide the gun show!

Weekly WODs:

Monday – Hefty Hinge

Bring your lifters on day 1! We have a 3RM deadlift, and will push the pace in our conditioning workout. For the conditioning, we will hack away at 3 rounds of moderately heavy deadlifts and a few double unders. The fun won’t end until we finish off with a 200m run.

 

Tuesday – Eazy-E

Don’t let the name fool you! This workout will be everything, but easy! We have a 21 minute EMOM of Dumbbell split snatches, calories on the bike, and unbroken wall-balls.

 

Wednesday – 5×5 / 5×3 Squat Cycle

We are adding that last five pounds before test week. You could say things are getting pretty serious! As always, let’s focus on bracing and treat each rep as a chance to get better. We will finish up with two minutes of max calories on the bike or rower followed by kettlebell swings.

 

Thursday – Belly Flop

Is it an Up-Down or a Kickback? Call it what you want, but we will have a good time regardless. In our conditioning workout we will perform kickbacks and power cleans as a descending rep ladder.

 

Friday – Bodyweight Ninja

What better way to honor a fallen hero than some old school military style workouts! We have a max effort run followed by a max distance row in the remaining allotted time.  We will get an awesome bodyweight workout with pull-ups, sit-ups, and hand release pushups afterwards!

 

Saturday – Community WOD

Bring your friends and come get sweaty with our community at 9am! We have burpee box jump overs, and alternating dumbbell snatches. We will conclude our 45 minute class with some single leg box squats!

 

Saturday – Level 2

We are gonna get a core blast this weekend! We have Russian swings, box jumps, overhead plate lunges, and V-Ups.  Our goal is to spend about 1 minute with each for four sets!

Saturday – Community WOD

We usually program lower skill movements for our free workout on Saturday, but that doesn’t mean we dial down the intensity. You can make your weekend workout with your friends as hard as you want! We have med ball cleans and med ball push presses topped off with spicy short running intervals.

 

Saturday – Level 2

Our new programming has taught us that holding static positions with kettlebells is a lot harder than it seems. We have a fantastic kettlebell routine planned for our warmup which includes windmills, around the worlds, and single arm front rack carries. Our longer duration conditioning workout afterwards will pump up our chest, give our quads a challenge on the bike, and heat up our calves from box jump overs.

Supplement Spotlight

Transparent Labs

Fat Burner Stim-Free

Sometimes we need a little extra help vacating that last little bit of stubborn belly fat. You are in luck if you are in the market for a fat-burning supplement! Often times, fat burning supplements are loaded with stimulants that keep you on edge and awake! Don’t worry though, Transparent Labs has you covered with their Stimulant Free Fat Burner. One of the key ingredients in Transparent Labs’ Stimulant Free Fat Burner is Forskolin. Forskolin acts as a fat cell liberator by producing enzymes like lipase to break down fat cells.

 

Image result for transparent labs stim free fat burner

 

 

However, there are a few other helpful products inside this fat busting genie! 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring amino acid that helps create the neurotransmitter Serotonin. 5-HTP is responsible for elevating your mood, assisting with sleep, and may even be used as an appetite suppressant. So don’t sacrifice your sleep for shedding that last little bit of body fat! Try the effective non-stimulant fat-burner from Transparent Labs!

Things should be heating up this week our squats! We have our regularly scheduled 5×5 or, 5×3 squat cycle planned for the beginning of the week.  We will also get some work with heavy push presses. You can pick your poison for the conditioning portion. Your options are the CFK benchmark “Barfight” (Max effort 500m row), or her ugly step-sister “Moshpit” (Max Effort Assault Bike Calories in 1:00).

 

Tuesday – Earthquake

On day 2 we will shake the earth with heavy deadlifts in our conditioning workout. We have deadlifts, double-unders, and rope climbs. If double-unders don’t excite you than we will scale to plate hops. Bring leg protection! It’s all fun and games until you get burned!

Wednesday – 9/11 Tribute WOD

The initial release of the week in preview had “Daniel” marked as the WOD for the day. We apologize for the confusion. As previously mentioned in the upcoming events, ALL classes will be performing the 9/11 Tribute WOD. Let’s get after it in this one in support of those we lost.

 

 

Thursday – Mac Truck

Saturday – Community WOD

We have not one…not two…but, three 4-minute AMRAPs for our free community workout this week. Bring a friend and share your undying love for wall balls, push-ups, and sprints.

We will be adding 5 pounds this week to our 5×5 or 5×3 squat cycle. Let’s focus on owning positions with the tempo, and get after it in the conditioning workout. We have a moderately long AMRAP filled with situps, calories on the rower, and a gymnastics pull of choice.

Tuesday – Gump

Wednesday – Grace

You read correctly, We have Grace! We will first work up to a heavy 1 rep max with the clean and jerk then head into our conditioning.  Grace is a pretty soulless type of girl so choose your weights wisely!

Thursday – Treat Yo Self

We have another dose of Thursday therapy planned this week! We have crushed some hard WODs now it’s time to take a step back. We will be doing a full body flush  with rowing, plate ground to overheads, and plate overhead lunges. You’ll see the same format for the workout as we’ve seen each Thursday before the qualifier workouts.

These workouts are tough, but as a resilient and experienced CFK athlete we know you have done everything in order to prepare. It’s time to perform! Drop the Hammer and Go!

Saturday – Level 2

Chest Day! We haven’t had one in awhile so its a great time to see where we are at with a heavy 3 rep bench. We also have a cool partner WOD planned that incorporates the elements of the benchmark Cindy, and max calories on the bike.

Saturday – Community WOD

Our free workout this week will test our ability to maintain consistency across 4 rounds of calories on the bike, kick-backs, and kettle-bell cross body static holds. It’s an excellent day to bring a friend, and learn some less familiar movements with our experienced coaches.

Supplement Spotlight

Clearing up the Confusion
When it’s time to chill out cannabidiol (CBD) should be a go to supplement in your stash. At CFK, we are confident in the abilities of Julian Marley to produce a supplement capable of reducing inflammation, decreasing anxiety, and giving you a more sound slumber. CBD does not contain the psychoactive compounds that produce the sluggish “high”associated with tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) . Often, people mistakenly identify CBD as THC. Receptors in the brain are highly involved with this “high”. These cannabinoid receptors found in the brain control our pain sensations, appetite, and even our changing moods.  One of the brain’s most common cannabinoid receptors , the CB1 ,  is responsible for the hunger binges and fogginess caused by THC. CBD does not produce these undesired effects because it does not attach to CB1 receptors like THC. No need to be scared! Try it today!  Whether your trying to win the battle against inflammation, or hit the sheets early Juju Royal is the way to go!

Tuesday – Thick Rick

Double-unders are hard, but some people seem to make them look  absolutely effortless! We will get some practice with the elusive double under, and work a gymnastics weakness at the first part of our class. Our conditioning is going to be a burner with double unders, running intervals, and handstand pushups.

 

Wednesday – Klokov

We will take 20 minutes to build to a 1 rep max snatch at the beginning of class. The focus for today is to hit the same positions with big weight as you would with lighter weights. The WOD for today will challenge our positioning by elevating our heart rate on the rower, and heading straight into maximum repetition of snatches at lighter loads.

 

Thursday – Get Moving and Stay Moving

One of the best ways to recover from workouts is to get moving. Day 4 is going to be lower intensity workout that will allow us sufficient recovery before Wodapalooza on Friday. Our recovery WOD includes jump squats, sit- ups, kettle-bell swings, and rowing.

Supplement Spotlight

Transparent Labs Turmeric

Turn To Turmeric

Your body’s ability to recover from training is one of the most important factors to consider when trying to reach your fitness goals. As crossfitters, we often experience the repercussions of our training through inflammation and the dreaded post workout delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Our body instinctively translates workout stress into inflammation. The active ingredient in Turmeric called Curcumin has extremely potent anti-inflammatory properties which can aid our recovery from tough workouts. Some research suggests that all natural Turmeric might be as effective in reducing inflammation as ibuprofen! Turmeric’s health benefits include reducing the effects of rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, and even depression! It’s no secret why it has been used as a staple supplement in India and China for thousands of years. Transparent Labs has created an excellent combination of Turmeric and Bioprene that allows nutrients to be absorbed to their full potential. Say bye to those cranky knees with Turmeric!

Wednesday – Recover from Squats with More Squats

We retested last week for the new cycle, and have made it to the first week of 5×5 squats.

Thursday – What’s your Weakness

 

Prepare to work on those movements you’ve always wanted to master! Our focus today is the flashy movements of crossfit. Some of these movements include strict toes to bar, muscle-ups, and pistols. If you are new to these more complex movements we will work their respective progressions!

“Talent without grit is just potential. Talent plus grit is unstoppable.” — Ben Bergeron

Supplement Spotlight – D-Aspartic Acid

 

This supplement triggers the brain to increase the body’s natural production and transportation of testosterone, and luteinizing hormone (LH). According to recent studies, T levels in men have drastically declined over the past decade while women  experiencing ovarian and other reproductive issues are on the rise. This could be due to the very flawed average American diet. D- Aspartic Acid can be used to increase muscle mass, strength, definition, and promote health of the reproductive system. Guys don’t be D-ficient… Try D-Aspartic Acid.

Weekly WODs:

 

Monday – Jelly Belly

 

We will start our week by waking up our abdominals! The first  workout of the week includes high volume sit-ups and heavy deadlifts.

Tuesday – Good Abs, Great Lifts

 

Core stability and strength are critical to olympic lifting. Core stability helps to protect the spine during heavy lifts, and allows us to transfer maximal force to the bar! We will be testing our muscular endurance in the WOD by holding difficult positions in periods of heart rate elevation.

Wednesday – Clean up your Clean!

 

Day 3 consist of a two part workout involving  a clean complex, and an ascending rep wall ball and power clean ladder. We will focus on positioning during the clean complex, and ratchet up the intensity for the conditioning.

Thursday – Boulder Shoulders

 

You know its going to be a good day when you are already upside down by  warmup time! Prioritizing consistency will allow us to move quickly through multiple rounds of rowing, plate ground to overheads, and overhead lunges.

Friday – Squat Cycle (Week 7)

 

Our final build week of the cycle is upon us! Brace yourselves! Literally. The bar should be moving much slower than it was at the beginning of the cycle. However, if you want an added challenge ask your coach about the tempo challenge!

Saturday Community WOD – Teddy Swolesevelt

 

Most of us have a friend that enjoys working out in front of the mirror at the dumbbell rack! This week is a perfect time to invite that friend, and introduce them to crossfit! Your friends will get the best of both worlds with an EMOM conditioning workout followed by a sleeve stretching arm workout.

Saturday Level 2 – Suns Out, Guns Out

 

We have a fun high volume workout consisting of double unders, toes to bar, and running. Our goal is to find a rhythm early and maintain consistency throughout the workout! We will finish with accessory work involving our chest and triceps.
