We’ve cooked up a nasty little bicep and tricep workout for the challenge this week. Post your video to  Instagram and insert these hashtags with your posting #cfk#bro’sandbi’s#coach’schallenge#crossfit.

 

Weekly WODs

 

Monday – Squat Day

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

Day 2 will force us to flex our grit muscles as we attempt to hold a tough pace throughout a long duration workout. We have lots of conditioning today that includes running intervals, double-unders, single dumbbell step-ups,  and rowing.

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.

Friday – Wodapalooza Online Qualifier (Released Wednesday Night)

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!

Weekly WODs

 

Monday – Colt 45.

We begin class with our regularly scheduled squat cycle. We will shake off Monday’s frustrations with an AMRAP of slam balls, slam ball lunges, and toes to bar. It’s a perfect day to release negative energy on the slam ball!

 

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.

 

Friday – Wodapalooza Online Qualifier

Ask your favorite coaches on Wednesday night what the WOD is so you’ll be prepared! Otherwise it’s a mystery until then!

 

Saturday – Level 2

We have a two part workout that consist of heavy deadlifts…everywhere! Our strength session includes a heavy 3 rep deadlift followed by a conditioning workout that may bake your back! Don’t worry we sprinkled in a few burpees over the bar for good measure!

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!

Weekly WODs

Monday – Tour De CFK

Tuesday – Double “Barfight” and Open Prep

If you like rowing fast today is your day! The second training day of the week is going to test our skills with some unfamiliar movements that we are likely to see in the open. We have single dumbbell overhead lunges, single dumbbell burpees, and double-unders.  However, we begin the workout with a 1000m buy in on the rower! Be fast and furious!

 

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. We will be dropping the weights down this week in order to focus on technique, and establishing great positions! We will finish the day off with a squat filled WOD that incorporates sprint intervals, hang cleans, and front squats.

 

Thursday – WODability

We are getting a nice recovery workout near the middle of the week because we need it! We will spend some time getting our heart rates elevated, and going through full-range of motion on non-complex movements. We will be recovering through perfect squats, slam-balls, and lunges.

Saturday – Level 2  “Straight 100”

We end the week with a benchmark workout that includes 100 reps of wall balls, 100 calories on the rower, and 100 box jumps. The key to this workout is big sets on the wall balls while maintaining a lower heart rate.

 

Saturday – Community WOD “Farmer Fran”

Bring your friends to our free weekly 9am class. We have a partner workout in which each partner will spend time blasting through calories while the other partner does pec pumping push-ups. We will also be testing our grip strength with a heavy 400m partner farmer’s carry!

“Winning means your willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than anyone else”

-Vince Lombardi

Supplement Spotlight

Don’t Race Towards Rickets!

Some people believe that by consuming large amounts of calcium in their diet  that it allows them to have strong bones, but this is only a half truth. Calcium absorption is solely dependent on the amount of vitamin D contained in the cells throughout the body.  Without sufficient levels of Vitamin D, Calcium cannot be absorbed through the intestines. Sufficient Vitamin D levels are critical to maintenance of bone, and overall critical to the crossfit athlete. Crossfit athletes often put their bones under extraordinary stress from heavy weight training. These situations cause bone to degenerate and regenerate. We need Vitamin D to facilitate this regeneration of bone, and to help increase bone density.

Wednesday – Old School

Supplement Spotlight:

Blackmarket Raw Glutamine

Glutamine is the king of supplements when it comes to reducing muscle soreness. It is the most common amino acid found in the muscles, and plays a major role in protein synthesis to repair broken down muscle fibers. Glutamine is also a neurotransmitter found in the brain that increases memory and focus. If you find yourself getting super sore from tough WODs and wanting to hold back on the gym, you may consider adding raw glutamine to your routine.

2019 “I AM CFK” Challenge



Keys to Success:    1. Develop the Habits  2. Fall in Love with the Process

Register here!

If your habits are great and you are where you want to be in life and in fitness, this challenge is not for you.  If you aren’t sure of your habits or know you need to develop better ones, this challenge IS for you!
We are a product of our habits. – We are what we eat, sleep, drink, think, and do most often.  No one event, meal, or workout will define us but what we do consistently will.  People who are fulfilled mostly do things that are fulfilling.  People who are lean, fit, strong, and look like they workout out all the time…. same, same.
Successful people rely on good habits for decision making. People who are struggling also rely on habits, they just may not realize it.  To make the correct decision day after day, requires us to chart our current behaviors and plan our positive decisions.  Then we apply a little discipline until they become habit.
The 2019 Summer I AM CFK Challenge is all about Healthy Habits.  We won’t focus on restriction or temporary lifestyle changes to get “Summer Abs.”  I AM CFK is a set of daily/weekly challenges designed to create lasting, sustainable habits.
To understand and develop habits, we must first analyze our current behaviors through tracking; then identify and incentivize healthy behaviors to replace the less desirable ones.  Watch this video and read this book to learn more.

6 Week Healthy Habits Challenge – $99
