Saturday, 21/04/12

Choose either of the two workouts – A or B.Β Both workouts are 20 minute AMRAPs. One way to inform your decision is to choose the workout that provides the best balance for your week of training.
Workout A) “Cindy” was last programmed in February, which is not so long ago but it gives you an opportunity to see how your fitness has progressed over the last two months in terms of your bodyweight movements. You can check the scores from last time here.
Workout B) “Jack” has not been programmed at CFK before so you will be setting a new benchmark effort if you choose this workout.
A) “Cindy”
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
5 Pullups
10 Pushups
15 Squats
B) “Jack”
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
10 Push Press (50/35kg)
10 Kettlebell Swings (24/16kg)
10 Box Jumps (24″)

    I’m not sure what “pu” refers to here, pullup or pushup, as people put their own scores up on the board. If I write the score up I usually use “pu” for pullups and “push” for pushups. “kpu” = knee pushups, jp=jumping pullups.
    A) “Cindy”
    Lana 11 rounds (purple)
    Pip LF 12 (box pulls)
    Chris Bats. 10 + pu
    Lucy K 8+10 squats (box pulls)
    Ali 11+ pu (red/orange)
    Kate P 13+5 pullups (blue, kpu)
    Patrick 12+4 pullups Rx
    Kim L 10 ( green/orange, kpu)
    Jo G 7 Rx
    Bianca 11+3 pu (red, kpu)
    Lauren 15+5 pu (blue, kpu)
    Leah 13+8 squats (green)
    Melita 9+5 squats (green/blue, kpu)
    Rob C 12+9 push Rx
    Nick LF 13+2 pullups
    Sue O 11 (orange/red)

      Shifting your body weight is the most functional movement of all the exercises that we do. “Cindy” is a magically simple blend of upper body and lower body strength, stamina and coordination (if kipping) and cardio endurance. Those who don’t recognise the cardio aspect of a workout like this have never attacked it properly.
      Big up to Jo G today. Rx for the first time on this workout, it sets a good benchmark standard for future trials of fitness. If you put these personal performance goals ahead of weight loss, body shape, dress size, bicep diameters etc, you’ll stop standing in front of the mirror wondering where all of the effort is going to. These results will come as a natural consequence of improved performance over time and a good diet.
      The evidence is in the numbers, not your subjective evaluation of self that is dependent on so many variables on any given day. Performance numbers don’t lie if your movement standards are consistently good.
      Patrick also went Rx for the first time on “Cindy” today. How did your numbers stack up? Use them as an evaluative tool to target your training goals.

      Hey Jim
      Know I haven’t been around for a bit but I was there and did Cindy – 11 orange:red band and strict pushups.
      Sure it wasn’t done on purpose – wont take it personally and will be back Mon…
      Cheers SueO

        It’s on the board now. Good effort too comparing to last time when you used the green band for your pullups.

    Caveman Bars
    You need…
    3/4 Cup Raw Almonds
    3/4 Cup Raw Macadamia Nuts
    1/4 Cup Raw Pepitas
    1/4 Cup Raw Sunflower Seeds
    1/4 Cup Shredded Coconut
    1/2 Cup Cranberries
    1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (or substitute with macadamia oil)
    1/4 Cup Organic Honey
    2 Eggs
    2 Tbsp Cinnamon
    Crush the almonds/macadamias first, then add everything else to a food processor. Mix through and bake for about 20mins in whatever baking tray you have. Let them cool in the fridge before cutting them up.
    I get most of the ingredients from the markets to save me some $$$.
    One batch makes about 9 bars, but I’ve been using these as a breakfast bar so I want more than just a snack. As April says, don’t go nuts (hehe, get it?) and eat heaps everyday.
    Enjoy.

      Thanks for the recipe – if you can’t get to the markets I find Crisp on Creek (near Mt Gravatt Bunnings) is fantastic for everything we have needed and not over priced.
