When insulin was discovered in 1921, recommendations on carbohydrate restriction began to loosen. Carbohydrate restriction remains, however, a direct treatment for the pathophysiology of diabetes. Insulin treatment may be harmful to some diabetics, exacerbating an existing state of hyperinsulinemia; carbohydrate restriction, conversely, reduces glucose, insulin, and insulin resistance simultaneously. This 2018 review summarizes the clinical evidence supporting the use of a ketogenic diet for Type 2 diabetes and provides guidance as to its safe, effective clinical application.

“Strive to blur distinctions between ‘cardio’ and strength training. Nature has no regard for this distinction.” But how does CrossFit blur this distinction given that strength/power training and cardiovascular training are at different ends of the power spectrum? More simply put, when you do “Grace” or “Fran” or “Angie” or even “Linda,” what kind of training are you doing? Is it power, strength, or cardio? Can they be combined? To what extent do they overlap? Obviously, they in fact do, and this is one of CrossFit’s huge contributions to fitness, but it flies in the face of much of the accepted knowledge in exercise science. How does it work? What are the mechanisms? These are complex questions and the answers depend on many factors.

I believe a bodyweight is a good start for most athletes. if strength is your limiting factor go for 75-80% from your bodyweight. If HSPU is your weakness break it up. Its a long workout. For rx+ go for 120-140kg. That will be a great stimulus. Have fun

In hindsight I would have gone heavier since the workout really revolved around recovering for more Strict HSPUs... I don't think going to 225 lbs would have reduced the number of rounds.

5 strict HSPU to a 25&10# plate + an mat (almost all sets were singles with :30-1 min rest between reps)


Ego got the best of me on this one, at first I read HSPU and assumed kipping - when I saw strict I was just like “meh you can do this too” and I got wrecked... I wish I had done it with just regular pushups and like 95# or 115# DL.

9 rounds + 2 DL @ 275#.


So that is 9.1 * 275 = 2,502.5. (Or 2,475 if we don't do fractional rounds.)


Tough. Probably went a little heavy on the deads. Thought I would stall out sooner on the HSPUs, but those went great — had several unbroken rounds and then some 6-4’s. Broke deads starting in round 2, but was able to stay 6-4 for awhile. By the end, it was 4 and then a lot of singles. Back is smoked!

This workout provides a nice opportunity to modify the workout based on the goal that you have for the day.....do you want a light and fast workout, a heavier and slower workout, or do you want a mix. You can use a load on the deadlifts and a rep range on the strict handstand push-ups to give you the desired effect that you want. Below are some scaling suggestions:


Deadlift: Being that there is no prescribed load, I will not need to scale much today. I will have athletes use loads where I’m confident they will be able to maintain sound mechanics throughout the duration of the workout. I will reduce reps for athletes that struggle with the movement and need to work at slower speeds. There might be a very rare instance where I elevate the barbell to a position that allows for sound mechanics.

As far as choosing loads for my athletes on this particular workout, I will likely encourage a moderate load that allows 10 reps to be completed unbroken for the first 5 rounds or so, before potentially needing to break the reps up slightly on the remaining rounds. If I pick a load that is very light (135-155/95-105) then I visualize this workout turning into a handstand push-up dominant workout. If a weight is too high (275-315/185-205) then I could see intensity dropping significantly and the athlete could be more likely to put themselves into poor positions. In the end, all of the options are fine, just choose one that aligns with a goal you are seeking for the day. If you are following the programming on a delay, I recommend looking to see what the workouts are for tomorrow and Saturday and use this to help guide your loading choice. For example, if tomorrow is a heavy day and Saturday is moderately load, consider opting on the lighter side today.


Strict handstand push-ups- I expect a high volume of reps to be accumulated today and I also expect that I will need to scale a lot of my athletes to help maintain consistency and range of motion. A large portion of my athletes will scale to a controlled kipping handstand push-up and focus on an eccentric phase of 3-5 seconds to still preserve an element of the strict nature of the movement. I will only have athletes perform 5 reps of this movement each round. I normally don’t like scaling to any form of kip when a strict movement is prescribed, however, as long at the 3-5 second negative is upheld and there is no crashing into the ground, I won’t have a problem with this today.

For athletes that cannot perform the kipping recommendation or a slow negative, I will have them perform a pike handstand push-up variation on the box. This can be a great option, as athletes can modify their body position to increase or decrease the difficulty. For example, performing this variation with the legs straight and hips stacked over the hands, in the starting position, can be very difficult. While performing this variation with the knees on the box would be less challenging. I will modify athletes to a pike push-up with feet on the floor if needed. If an athlete absolutely cannot get inverted in any fashion a strict dumbbell shoulder press will be my go to for the day.

At first I said, I wanna go for 300lb DL for 4 rounds, then I was like... 😂 not going to happen so I stuck with something really realistic, my body or close to that.

Strict hspu were performed with an abmat and a 25 lbs plate.


Deadlifts were done in sets of 5 all the way through. Hspu were done in sets of 5 except the last two rounds that went 5-3-2.

For 20 minutes

10 deadlifts @ 50kg

10 box handstand push ups

Result:

10 rounds x 50kg = 500...is that how this is calculated?

Yes Brendan, in Pounds that would be 10 x 50 x 2.205 = 1102.5 which is what most people are using.

Globo scale: sub strict press for strict HSPU, heavy (about 70-75% 1rm strict press) . deadlifts should be the same (70-80%).


If you only have dumbbells today do max sets of dumbbell deadlifts and shoulder press, or 20 dumbbell deadlifts, 10 shoulder press 50lbs. Women scale as necessary here.

INTENDED STIMULUS

.

Game day! Beast workout! This is how you learn about your own capacity. The obvious problem is what weight to pick for the deadlifts. In order to answer that let's focus on the other two variables. First consider the time window. This is a long workout, which means that being too heavy is really going to punish you in the second half of the workout. The second thing to consider is that the number of handstand push-ups is manageable, it shouldn't really stop you that much. This means you are going to be coming back to that bar often and continuously. The combination of these two facts tells us to proceed with caution. One way to think about this is that the deadlifts should not be what stops you from moving. You should be able to keep cycling that barbell–you don’t necessarily have to go unbroken, but you should be able to keep moving for sure. If you’re scaling the handstand push-ups, keep the number of reps the same, but modify the movement to something you can handle for the 20 minutes. You should not be reduced to singles in this movement, not until the final rounds. Before you start, get your calculator out and test a couple of scenarios in order to help you decide. No matter what happens you will learn, and that's the point!



OPTION 1

For 20 minutes:

10 deadlifts

10 box handstand push-ups



Score: multiply deadlift load by rounds completed.



OPTION 2

For 20 minutes:

10 deadlifts

5 hand release strict push-ups (only chest touches the ground, no hips or thighs)

5 seated strict DB presses



Score: multiply sum of deadlift and press loads by rounds completed.



OPTION 3

For 15 minutes:

10 deadlifts

10 banded pike push-ups



Score: multiply deadlift load by rounds completed.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT:

You are probably going to fall into one of two camps when looking at this one:

“Wow that’s a lot of handstand push-ups”

or

“Wow that’s a lot of deadlifts”

I think scaling to 5 and 5 would give most of us a better stimulus for today. 10 and 10 would be for people who are on either ends of the spectrum (struggle with deadlift form/can’t do any handstand push-ups or can sneeze heavy deadlifts off the ground/sleep in a handstand). 5 and 5 allows us to go heavy(ish) and preserve the upside-downness of the hspu. Also the intensity will be higher.


I SHOULD TRY THIS RX’D IF: I can go through the first half of the workout unbroken on handstand push-ups; I have a calculator handy


GROUP VERSION: see the rant, 5 and 5 for most, 10 and 10 for some. Handstand holds, feet/box hspu can be subbed for the 10/10 people. I also usually just count rounds, but I might switch things up and do the multiplication thing.


I’M ONLY HERE ONCE A WEEK AND THIS IS THE DAY VERSION: group version is good


INJURY VERSION:

Upper-body injury — one-arm push press is the easy answer, one-arm plank might be the best answer. Depends on what you want to get out of it

Middle-body injury — amrap in 20 of: 10 squats, :20 plank hold

Lower-body injury — amrap in 20 of: 5 strict toes to bar, 5 hspu


WARMUP:

Handstand — obviously

Jump rope — always

Squat — deadlift is a form of a squat

Hip extension — more deadlift prep

[insert thing you suck at]


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL (1=REST DAY, 10=PR-DRIVEN FGB): 6. Muscle fatigue will stop this from being really bad

I was wondering the same thing; what’s the weight?

Just pick your own weight, score is based on weight*rounds so light and fast or heavy and slow

Makes sense. Not sure I’ll enjoy either one, but I’ll find out in the morning.
