FCF Nutrition Challenge: Week 3

On to our third week of the nutrition challenge!

For those who chose the Keep It Simple route, how are things going? Are you still honestly following along without any follow ups? We want to hear from you! Share what your go-to recipe has been so far, on our challenge event Facebook page.

Here is one of our favorites:

Teddy-Inspired Chicken Recipe:
– chicken thighs
– coconut aminos
– sesame oil
– salt
– chopped green onions
– sprinkle or two of crushed red peppers
– chinese 5 spice (Sheena usually omits this)

Marinate the thighs for 15-30 minutes, allowing the thighs come to room temperature before cooking. Turn pan on medium-high heat and sear/cook each side for 7-10 min each. Great to pair with a side of veggies, on top of mixed greens with cherry tomatoes, or add in some sweet potato on the side.

Here’s one of Andrew’s favorites that he plans to make this week:

Maybe if he makes extra, he’ll sell you a container!

Remember, we have a sign up for meal swaps for every Thursday in our challenge. If you’re making some kind of stew this week, this would be a good opportunity to swap meals so you don’t eat the same thing for days and days! Another option is to freeze up the stew/soup to enjoy for a later time.

Yet Another Take on CinDT

Throwback Thursday: a staff picture with Nate and Carl the last time we hosted a Freestyle Connection Seminar

“So what’s this seminar we’re hosting on Tuesday all about?”

GLAD YOU ASKED!

This is a 2 hour workshop designed to be an exploration of movement thru the Freestyle Connection framework. The seminar will help attendees set movement standards and learn to create universal progressions.

Specifically Carl will address:
– Freestyle Connection Framework. A universal language for movement.
– Principles of Motor Control
– Pushing and Pulling
– The theory of Blocking Movement

This seminar is designed to help you:
* Turn on and trust your intuition about movement
* Use tools that help optimize imperfect movement
* Tap into the universal movement patterns and progressions underlying all disciplines
* Use Carl Paoli’s movement framework to create roadmaps for your physical success
* Learn what being strong really means

Our take on bootcamp workouts, this class challenges you for the entire hour with a blend of strength and conditioning that works all the major muscle groups and focuses on functional movement. HellaFit will get you #hellasweaty while having #hellafun!

Another Two-Part Sprint

Our gym philosophy on running is as follows:
– We generally subscribe to the idea that efficient running form with stronger bodies will produce better results rather just “pounding the pavement” and putting mileage in.
– Furthermore the workouts should be on some splits (depending on the length of the event you may be training for): short-interval, long interval, tempo, time trial, Fartleks, and sprints. This is of course paired up with a General Physical Preparedness program like CrossFit.
– As far as form is concerned we are POSE Method-biased: a cyclical “POSE – FALL – PULL” protocol is used with a bias towards forefoot striking.
– Sometimes we load the runs (odd-object carries, rucks, plate carriers or vests, etc.)

CHIEF

G$, the chief

THE CHIEF is a fun interval test to see how much work you can maximize per round, but repeat for multiple times. What is your drop off like, if any? Could you add another round in to each of your cycles? Which of the three exercises hold you back? Which of the three exercises lend to your strengths? Did you time the work properly to maximize the allotted time? So many factors, but a focus on one or more could lead you to better results.
