DSCF Goes to the Grocery

by JJ Christopher in Event | Leave a comment

holistic-denver-co-nutritionistRecently, I’ve received a lot of questions regarding diet, nutrition, and supplementation from members looking to make a change in their eating habits. This is GREAT! You work out hard so it makes sense that you’d want to maximize your time and energy (and results!) by feeding your body with the proper fuel. Plus, it’s about to be summer! So now is the perfect time to get ready to show off your progress (or prevent you from jeopardizing it….depending on your summer plans ;)).

 

Yet, the most challenging aspect of making a change is having a plan and putting it in motion. There are so many questions and possibilities that it makes it difficult to know where to begin. So….

let’s do it together!

Here’s the plan:

  1. Clean out your fridge, your pantry, and your cupboards. (optional: save this as the last step)
  2. Meet at the gym (on a date/time to be determined) for an informal nutritional presentation and discussion.
  3. Head to the brand new Mariano’s on Chicago Ave. for a guided field trip to help you navigate the maze of aisles, shelves, and bins. You’ll be provided with a shopping route to steer you toward the food on which to base your diet while avoiding the processed, packaged junk.

 

If you’re interested in attending, please comment below so we can look to schedule something for an upcoming weekend.

About Al:

Alison Lampier – Coach

al@divisionstcrossfit.com

Al’s been an athlete her entire life. From soccer to basketball, track & field, rugby, and even D1 rowing, she’s been active since she could walk. Not until Al found CrossFit in 2010 did she find her true athletic passion. It’s the one sport that requires her to push past both mental and physical blocks. And after being sidelined by multiple injuries in the past, it’s the most sustainable form of fitness she’s yet to discover. After being an active member in the CF community for a few years, Al became a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and ACE-CPT. Ever since then she has loved teaching functional movement to anyone who will listen!

IMG_3149Strength:

push press

    • 3 RM

 

Conditioning:

8 min. AMRAP

    • 1 Bear Complex (135/95)
    • 1 muscle-up (sub: 2x burpees and 2x pull-ups)
    • 2 Bear Complexes
    • 2 muscle-ups
    • 3 BCs
    • 3 MUs
    • etc.

400m run

then as fast as possible, go back down the ladder of BCs/MUs, starting wherever you finished

- Bear Complex: power clean, front squat, push press (to the back), back squat, push press (to the front)

- since this is a metcon, you may “smooth out” the Bear Complexes and perform a clean into a thruster into a back-rack thruster or anything in between. however you choose to perform your Bear Complex, the bar must touch the ground at the beginning followed by hitting a front squat bottom, overhead lockout, back squat bottom, and overhead lockout.

- wherever you finish the couplet at the 8 minute mark is where you begin upon returning from the run

- for instance, if you get through 3 muscle-ups in the round of 5s you will do 3 muscle-ups, 5 Bear Complexes, 4 MUs, 4 BCs, 3 MUs, 3 BCs, etc. as quickly as possible.
