4th of July is just around the corner! The gym will only be holding 1 WOD on the 4th. Gym will open at 9:00am and WOD will begin at 9:30am. The gym will be CLOSED July 5th. All of CF138 is invited to Dawn’s house for a 4th of July party. There will be a pickle ball tourney, volleyball, good food, drinks, and lots of fun. If you are able to make it, bring a side dish or drinks to share!! Party will start around 4ish – 5ish. Get directions from Dawn directly.
This post is a bit long, but very important. After some observation and thought, we will be trying a new gym hour format in the evening (currently only the evening). We will be having structured start times for WODs. Don’t confuse structure times with set class times. WOD start times will be determined by the amount of time warm up, strength, and WODs take. Day to day WODs can start on the hour, 45 minute, or half hour. It will be posted on the board how often WODs are starting. For example, if you come into the gym at 4:50pm and the next WOD time starts at 5pm, you will have from 4:50pm to 5:29pm to get your warm up, strength, and set up for the WOD (for example have your barbell figured out and loaded, kettle bell ready, box jump, nervous pee done, shoes changed, etc) ready for the 3-2-1 at 5:30pm. We value everyone’s time and hope structure WOD times creates efficiency in getting people through the evening. This new structure times will start tomorrow. Yes. Friday. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through the kinks and flow.

Review: Nicole Capurso's Flex Dieting Seminar at CFW Last week we hosted Nicole Cupurso and her Flex Diet seminar. I was very impressed. Nicole is not only a top weightlifter and CrossFitter (Team The Outlaw Way / Competitive Edge Performance), she speaks well and articulates the important parts of the Flex Diet and how to use it to reach your goals. First off... allow me to address the donuts. If you don't know, Nicole and many of her Flex Diet friends make jokes about eating donuts. They are NOT saying you should eat donuts, or other junk food, daily. Instead that it is ok to have one every now and then. The Flex Diet gives you a threshold... a specific number of grams of carbs to fit your donut into and therefore keeping the donut from derailing your goals. Most of you know I promote eating clean food... "Paleo" foods, if you will. I have tried to explain for years that the eating "Paleo" does not mean eating low carb or even that you should be. Granted some of the Paleo Purveyors did push a low carb version... that's dumb. Rather, you should eat the carbs, protein, and fat you need to accomplish your goals. No more and no less. I ate Paleo while training for an Iron Distance triathlon last year... I weighed ~225lbs so I sometimes ate 500+ grams of "paleo" carbs (fruit, potatoes, rice) to fuel each training day. Understand the difference between counting your macro nutrient intake and eating healthy are not always the same thing. For you Paleo freaks... you know, you guys and gals who eat a SUPER STRICT, 100% EVOLUTIONARY, CAVEMAN, PRIMAL HUNTER diet 80% of the time... what Nicole teaches is pretty much what you are already doing, only it quantifies it and keeps you from having to lie to yourself about being such a healthy hunter gatherer. Moving on... the Flex Diet is a pretty simple way to figure out how much you should eat per day. The equation uses a multiple to adjust for your specific goal fat loss, performance, weight gain, etc.). I prefer the Flex Diet approach over The Zone to lining out the number of grams of protein, carbs, and fats to the Zone. It is a more practical and less confusing approach that I think more people can apply and stick to. Ultimately, sticking to a diet is most important part to your success with it. If losing weight (fat) is your goal, I highly recommend it. Most people I work with have no idea how many calories they eat each day, much less how many grams of protein, carbs, and fat. It blows my mind how many adults actually eat like year old children... they literally have no idea that they reason they are fat and unhealthy is they have Poptarts for breakfast, nachos for lunch, and pizza for dinner. When they add it up and find out they typically eat less than 50 grams of protein and more than 300 grams of carbs each day, it is an eye opener. The Flex Diet will force you to learn to plan your meals and give you clearly defined numbers of each macro you can consume each day. Some coaches and nutrition "experts" scoff at the Flex. They forget that the average person, just starting to diet, cannot gauge their food intake like we do. For a beginner, weighing, measuring, and counting is a great way to get educated on eating and dieting. I don't care which method a person uses to diet if it works. The bottom line... Nicole presents the info in a clear and concise manner. I highly recommend you attend when she is in your area. If you want to know more about implementing the Flex Diet now, hit me up. Or contact Nicole... she does online coaching at a great rates.
It is that time of year again. The comfort zone is just a place where dormant stale people live. Last year I personally witnessed more than a dozen PR's by doing nothing less than putting themselves out there and pushing through their comfort zone. Also this year, something new...a scaled division?? READ UP AND GET SIGNED UP! We will be doing each WOW on Friday (the day after it is released)! http://games.crossfit.com/article/whats-new-2015

PSA: Although we will "test" front and back squat this week, I do not expect big numbers, from anyone who has been consistent with training, due to the high intensity of CF Open metabolic work we have on the schedule. I.E. don't get frustrated if you don't PR on everything or anything, look at the big picture and have confidence in the squatting volume under our belts.
