Each athlete will cycle through the 6 rounds (24 stations) of the workout. Teammate 2 starts 1 minute behind Teammate 1. Teammate 3 starts 2 minutes behind Teammate 1. Score is team total calories on the rower. On the first two stations, athletes will rest the remainder of the minute after the work is completed before beginning the next station. Weight on the snatch barbell should be something that athletes will complete unbroken on every round. It is ok if there are multiple barbells for teams with athletes using different weights.

2018 Nutrition and Fitness Challenge!

More Challenge details…

The nutrition aspect of this Challenge will be geared towards following the Whole30 just like we have done in the past. The Whole30 is a fantastic way to heal and detoxify your body. You’ll lose weight, have more energy, sleep better, have less aches and pains and be able to think more clearly just to mention a few things. Several of your fellow CF Woodstock athletes can testify to the benefits of the Whole30. I will set up a Facebook group for everyone who signs up for the Challenge and will be posting Whole30 related nutritional guidance all month long.

Here is the slight difference about this Challenge…it is scaleable. Just like our workouts are scaleable to meet the needs of the individual athlete, this Challenge is scaleable to meet the level of commitment of the individual athlete. Are you all in to set yourself up for a healthy new year? Great, commit to doing the Whole30 and follow my posts in the group. Not quite all in? Maybe there are some things that you’re just not willing to live without for a month? Then please try eliminating most of, or even some of, the “bad” things from your everyday diet for the month instead. You’re still in the group, you still get the posts, you’re still going to be healthier at the end of the month. Even if you just give up refined sugar (that’s an important one!) you’ll be doing yourself a huge favor! Check the Whole30 page to get the full list of foods to avoid. Avoid them all or pick a few important ones.

I’ll put a signup sheet at the gym. If you are not on Facebook, please leave your email address so I can send you the nutrition posts. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! Here’s to a healthy new year!

The front squat weight should be heavy, but something that athletes can complete in 1-2 sets each round. The bar will come from the ground, so it should be a weight that athletes can also clean. Squat cleaning the first rep is allowed.
