Open  gym today from 6am to 11am

BE PREPARED!!!

We always do the 12 Days of CrossFit - BBCF style, this year we choose to step it up a notch and borrow a 2 Day WOD from Outlaw...

And IT KICKED EVERYONES ASS!!!!

“The 12 Days of Outlaw 2012″

*After completing the first movement go back to 1 and begin again adding a new movement each round. There are 12 total rounds with one new movement being added each round. I.E. do 1 C&J, then 1 C&J + 2 MU, then 1 C&J + 2 MU + 3 Box Jumps, etc. The WOD is complete when the 12 Front Squats are completed.

1 Clean & Jerk @ 225/150# we did 80/55kg
2 Muscle-Ups
3 Box Jumps 36/30″
4 Hang Squat Snatch @ 115/75# we did 60/30kg
5 Bar Facing Burpees
6 Push Press @ 115/75# we did 60/30kg
7 Pistols (alternating)
8 T2B
9 Wall Ball 20/14# - we did KB swings at 24/16kg
10 C2B Pullups
11 HSPU
12 Front Squats @ 225/150# (no racks) we did 80/55kg

For time.
Notes: Clean & Jerk may be any style. HSPU are head to floor (no need for Regionals standard), and kipping is allowed. Racks ARE NOT allowed for Front Squats.

Today we have a Memorial WOD for the loss of life at Sandy Hook Elementary.

This was a great workout, and I have to say thank you to Coach Travis for thinking of this great workout and an awesome sweaty time.

Metcon:

27 min AMRAP

7 deadlifts 120/80kg
20 pull ups
7 squat clean 80/50kg
20 GHD sit ups
7 hang cleans 60/40kg
20 pull ups
7 push press 60/40kg
20 GHD sit ups

The number scheme represents the lives lost of both children and adults, it is such a sad time that we have to program a workout as a memorial to the lives of innocent children and teachers that did not even have a chance to witness the joys of life that we take for granted everyday.

I love you all, I love my family and friends, please hold your loved ones and anyone else for that matter a little tighter tonight, and when you're done with this workout covered and sweat and on our knees pray for those who lost their loved ones.

Diabetes - What can we do?

Diabetes by the Numbers
 
We Americans love our sweets, that’s a fact. There are hundreds of varieties of candies and cakes out there; enough to satisfy even the largest of sweet-tooths (you can even get fried Coca-Cola at some county fairs! Fried soda!). Though we do love these treats, there should be restraint used. That’s not to say they should be cut out entirely; eating sweets in limited quantity in a "clean" sweets kinda way every once in awhile might not be so bad, but it’s once you start habitually over-consuming that the problems can occur. One of the (obvious) unintended consequences of this sugar over-consumption is the toll that can be taken on your health, specifically in the form of diabetes.

Today’s infographic from jsonline.com gives us an overview of Americans with diabetes. According to the graphic, more than 8% of the U.S. population has diabetes. While that might not seem like a huge percentage, it still equals out to around 28 million people who are afflicted! Diabetes is also a leading cause of limb amputation, but with comprehensive foot care programs the number of limbs lost could be reduced drastically.

 

14 FACTS ABOUT SUGAR!

Facts About Sugar
 
There’s no hiding the fact that American’s love sugar, it’s in everything delicious! From ice cream to French fries, there is no escaping this silent button buster. But as great as sugar tastes, its become a huge problem to the people of America. The problem has been mocked in television shows and has even been addressed in real life with the soda ban in New York.

Today’s infographic gives 14 sweet facts about sugar. After reading the infographic, you will come to the realization that sugar is poisoning us. I know after I finished reading it, I promised on more sugary snacks, but alas, here I am eating ice cream while I write this post. The truth is, sugar is hard to give up, so let’s at least try to decrease our intake. I’m sure well all look and feel a lot better!

 

BUTTER BUTTER BUTTER

Butter is Good for You?
 
I love butter. Its delicious, but I didn’t know there were so many different types. I used to think only salted and unsalted butter existed and I still never knew the difference. (Okay.. I guess one has salt..) Now it seems butter has taken the advice from beef and started going grass-fed.

Ready for me to blow your mind? Grass-fed butter has Omega-3s, CLAs, antioxidants and its even chocked full of vitamins. Another stat that I can barely conceive is the relation of butter consumption from 1910 to 2000. Butter consumption back in the day was 18 pounds per capita (holy crap) compared to only 4 pounds per capita now. The unbelievable part of this is that heart disease was less than 10% of the population in 1910. Now almost half of the population dies due to heart problems.

Why has butter consumption dropped but heart health declined? Maybe there isn’t a correlation between the two. Did you know saturated fat has never actually been linked to heart disease? I didn’t. It seems like trans fat is the heart killer in this situation and that saturated fat I was talking about? Its actually good for you.

Butyrate is a short-chain saturated fat found in butter. It it has also been proven to help lab rats with a plethora of health problems and can help to reduce swelling in humans. Butter has and always will be apart of our life. Don’t be afraid of it. If you want to be more healthy maybe just stop going to drive-throughs.

CrossFit Total

The CrossFit Total reflects an athlete's functional strength capacity more accurately than any other test, writes Mark Rippetoe, author of Starting Strength and owner of The Wichita Falls Athletic Club/CrossFit Wichita Falls.

The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift. All three lifts are done while standing on the floor. They require minimal and inexpensive equipment. They are not technique- dependent to the extent of the Olympic lifts, yet they require technical proficiency beyond mere passing familiarity. They are safe when performed correctly, since they can all be performed without spotters—alone in a garage if necessary.

There is no time limit for each lift or for the length of the session in which they are all performed, but they must all be performed during one session—i.e., you cannot leave the area to rest or perform other activities between the three lifts.

Anyone in a position to attempt a legitimate CrossFit Total should be familiar enough with their capabilities on the lifts to have a fairly good idea of just what might be possible for a one-rep max (1RM). This number is what you warm up intending to do. A meet situation will involve three attempts, and this is a good way to determine a true 1RM.

The first attempt would be a weight you know you can do for a heavy set of three. The second attempt would be a weight you know without any doubt that you could do for a single, having just done the first attempt. And the third attempt is the weight you want to do, based on your performance on the previous two attempts.
