30 Apr

We are running a new challenge for the CFCC BCCC!  Take a picture of a meal and write a recipe to send to me at erin@crossfitcc.com – the 3 best recipes and 3 worst recipes will win.  The winners will win dinner and instruction with the one and only Arrus Farmer who will be feeding you all and counselors Meghan and Abbey.  Among the instruction will be the following items: Perfect Steak, Braised Pork, Easy Fish, Getting the most out of Roasting a Whole Chicken, Tony Oil Salad, Southern Greens, and Ginger Infused Sweet Potatoes.  You will learn SO much – and all at the price of submitting your picture and recipe! Turn in your recipes by Friday, May 11th at midnight to win.

Arrus is taking you on a trip to Reading Terminal Market to learn about how to pick your proteins, greens, and carbohydrates at 8am this Saturday (meet at the gym) and also next Saturday (5/12/12) at 8am.  Why 8am? Because that’s the only way you’ll get the best, and learn the most without being distracted by tourists.  Skills for picking things out at the Terminal do transfer to your normal every day supermarket – so get some shut-eye early on Friday and come out on Saturday to learn how to navigate a place you’ll be every week if you know what’s good for you!

What happens to your body when you carb binge!

Beefy, Refreshing, AND BCCC approved – Lettuce Wraps from NomNomPaleo.

Do you keep a workout log?  If not, you SHOULD.  Here’s one place to Register for one. You’ll have to put your Workout Log as “new thread” under that section.  From there, just post whenever you do what you’ve done and it’s easy to search through the years to see how you’ve improved.  You can also use the “subscribed threads” feature to follow OTHER members of CFCC such as: Angie Marfisi, Coach Liz Edmonds, Reid Hurley, Original CFCCer Dave Lishego, Tara Garlinghouse, Todd Lane (in Ireland!), Melanie Lane (in Ireland!), Hunter Blackmore, David Wisniewski, Eileen Horgan, Rachel Miller, Jonah Detofsky, Shana McCarron, Meghan Ramos, Arrus Farmer, Rachel Baratz, Karis Yusavitz, Coach Sammy, Tony Kas (in Texas!), Jpap, and Coach Erin (moi!)  If you start a log – let me know!  I will gladly check it out when I can and also post it on a page I’m working on that has a list of CFCC logs – keeping track of where you’ve been is not only convenient for training purposes but also for encouragement on days when you’re not getting where you want to go as quickly as you would like!  No matter HOW you log – you SHOULD be logging!

CROGA at 630-715am and CONDITIONING at 715-8am.

SKILL WORK: The Muscle-Up, use the cage if rings are still not hung at this point, it will not be in use. Use a strict muscle-up if you are scared of the pull-up bar – or if you are lucky, and tall. Otherwise, feel free to use this time to work up to a max triple on the ring dip.

STRENGTH: Snatch, work up to a peak of 1. For those who have not been Snatching throughout the cycle, Overhead Squatting or Snatch Balancing may be used.

A little reminder.  You have to want it.
