As rx’d, and this would be a Diane PR I think.


I also think I figured out I need to put a lacrosse ball on my external shoulder rotators before heavy pushing movements.

This stuck out to me the most:

"The most successful CrossFit trainers recognize that a long, slow trajectory of advancement in skill and capacity toward a distant horizon is most effective both in terms of athlete development and retention."

What is your approach when an athlete has strong limits in their range of motion? Despite all the instructions and cues, he still cannot respect the points of performance.

The GRIT crew is going to love this one! Work/rest intervals are always a hit, and these movements specifically bring them lots of real-life benefits.


Because transition time is always a consideration for us, and because of the level of proficiency in our groups, I'm going to go with something between Juan's Option 2 and Chris's Practice Scale.


For total reps:

8 x :20/:10 Deadlift

8 x :20/:10 Handstand push-up // DB shoulder press

8 x :20/:10 Deadlift

8 x :20/:10 Handstand hold // DB OH hold



None of our athletes have handstand push-ups (yet), but Jeremy is getting really good at bent-hip hspu off an 18" box. This will be a great test of stamina for him. (And his deadlifts are *gorgeous* - we're running out of weights for him.) He also loves to practice wall walks, so I think he may do some wall walk holds and some plank holds for that second go-round.


Several others will do push-ups and plank holds as a scaling option there. Some knees, some elevated, some from the toes - but they'll all be shaking by the end. :)


For the deadlifts, a few standing athletes will load up barbells. (We had a couple more "graduate" to light barbells last deadlift day!) Some are still working on balance - a common adaptation there is to stand inside the dip horns and use one hand for balance while they do single-arm kettlebell deadlifts. This has been great for developing grip, patterning the hip hinge, strengthening the posterior chain and core, etc.


A few of our seated athletes do great with DB deadlifts, but many are still working on the core/grip/etc. to make it happen. Some will do single-arm deadlifts, some will do MB to lap, a couple may do seated back extensions - the emphasis today will be to pick something that makes you better AND works well in the tabata. We won't get too fancy with it for this one. I expect to see lots of variations here.


For our general warm-up: (a riff on Bryan's, but with less equipment/set-up time - these bodyweight movements will be more appropriate for our crew)


2-3 sets (maybe just one for the classes that will require a lot more transition time during the workout)

250 m erg (we have rowers and ski ergs - usually let them pick their fave)

15 swimmers

10 ea back scale (these will be very limited ROM, but they'll get a little single leg balance in) // reach-and-lean

10 hugs


Then they'll split up with their coaches and make a plan. Some will do a couple practice runs of :10/:20 at each movement.

Strict HSPUs. Deads were a little more straight-legged than typical to keep less knee flexion. But honestly when I go fast, I tend to do a more SL style anyway.

Commented on: It Is Time to Bust the Myth of Physical Inactivity and Obesity: You Cannot Outrun a Bad Diet

One thing we know for sure is that you can run your way INTO a bad diet. As the sports beverage industry knows, endurance athletes are notorious for carb loading before a race, carb refueling during a race and carb recovery after a race. You couldn’t design a better customer for Gatorade than that.


It’s encouraging to see evidence that fat-adapted athletes can perform well in endurance activities. However, it’s been claimed that low carb diets are bad for high-intensity work. This could be due to the fat adaptation period confounding results. Impaired high-intensity performance is not consistent with the observations of CrossFit as reported in 2004 (Zone Meal Plans): “For those eating according to Zone parameters, body fat comes off fast. When our men fall below 10 percent body fat and start approaching 5 percent, we kick up the fat intake. The majority of our best athletes end up at X blocks of protein, X blocks of carbohydrate, and 4X or 5X blocks of fat. Learn to modulate fat intake to produce a level of leanness that optimizes performance.”


A study on CrossFit athletes following either a low-carb keto diet or a control diet:


A Low-Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet Combined with 6-Weeks of Crossfit Training Improves Body Composition and Performance


There was no difference in performance between the groups, but the low carb group lost more fat. There doesn’t seem to be any reason to fear low carb diets will hurt performance. Sadly for Gatorade, it looks like sugar water is not required for exercise.

Commented on: It Is Time to Bust the Myth of Physical Inactivity and Obesity: You Cannot Outrun a Bad Diet

Interesting read, but when “Science” argues in favor of an absolute, it forces me to not take their evidence seriously (even if it is something I currently agree with). The diet that fueled the record for 2016 record of the Appalachian trail is something that immediately came to mind.


Excerpt from The NY Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/19/sports/fueled-by-beer-and-candy-bars-ultra-runner-karl-meltzer-sets-appalachian-trail-record.amp.html):


: “This time, he capped each night with one or two beers and left from rest stops with rainbow-colored Spree candy, Three Musketeers chocolate bars and bacon in his pockets. To save time and keep his energy up, he typically slept less than seven hours a night and instead had an energy drink every 10 miles, downing about five a day. When on another day his support crew found him napping, they gave him a pint of ice cream for a boost.

Though Meltzer averaged 50 miles in 15 hours of running a day, his pace faltered at times. At one point he slept on the trail instead of making it to his support van — and then he slept the next morning on the dirt again. But in the last two days, he gathered strength, running 83 miles nonstop in the final leg to finish Sunday morning at 3:38.“

——————————————————

On the other hand, maybe “big food” is in cahoots with The NY Times. One thing I know, anyone totting their science around as the absolute answer is the real similarity to draw in alignment with big tobacco. People’s bodies are different, any one solution isn’t for everyone, and with a population approaching 8 billion, that “Somebody” ranges in the millions. My opinion: our ancestors definitely outran a poor diet and Karl Meltzer definitely did as well. Exercise is limitless; Good exercise and diet together are unbeatable.

The sign of metabolic flexibility -of humans:

Volek, Phinney et all: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0026049515003340


I guess ultrarunner Zach Bitter was there as well.


Conclusion

Compared to highly trained ultra-endurance athletes consuming an HC diet, long-term keto-adaptation results in extraordinarily high rates of fat oxidation, whereas muscle glycogen utilization and repletion patterns during and after a 3 hour run are similar.


Carbloading was the thing to do, but Prof. Noakes aims to rewrite his nutritional advice in "the lore of running". It is kind of a beneficial to acquire access to one's fat storages of 100 000 kcal, and not solely to rely on carb storages of 2 000 kcal. Especially if you aim to do ultra, where you need 6 000 - 8 000 kcal within the day. The less you need to ingest in the later phase, the better (it robs time to take breaks in the bushes...).

Commented on: It Is Time to Bust the Myth of Physical Inactivity and Obesity: You Cannot Outrun a Bad Diet

Sadly, Dr. Benjamin Levine, Professor of Internal Medicine Cardiology and Distinguished Professor of Exercise Sciences at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas is obviously both brilliant and foolish at the same time. This phenomenon is not restricted to diet and exercise. Just about every discipline known to man has been adulterated. Once an idea gains traction and is taught, very few go back to the original assumptions to determine for themselves the veracity of the idea. And it is even worse when financial interests, or personal esteem, become motivating factors, and the use of fear-mongering, ridicule and condescension are employed. Today, people depend blindly on internet narratives. They prefer unproven theories to empirical evidence. And once they are convinced, they take part in disseminating nonsense as fact. Truth must swim against an overwhelming current of misinformation. I thank God for CrossFit in its fight to resist and overcome the ignorance of a lazy uncritical world.

Commented on: It Is Time to Bust the Myth of Physical Inactivity and Obesity: You Cannot Outrun a Bad Diet

"However, this is little appreciated by scientists, doctors, media writers and policymakers, despite the extensive scientific literature on the vulnerability of all ages and all sizes to lifestyle-related diseases."


If you ask Dr. Benjamin Levine, Professor of Internal Medicine Cardiology and Distinguished Professor of Exercise Sciences at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas if diet or quality of calories matters, he will emphatically tell you no and then offer you a piece of candy from his desktop candy jar, as if to silence any further discussion on the matter.

Sure, it's every kids dream to believe that 100 calories of candy is equivalent to 100 calories of whole foods. But, shouldn't we outgrow that myth as an adult and look to what the science is actually telling us?

INTENDED STIMULUS

.

Oh baby, this one will make you better. One great skill you can teach yourself today is not to take more than ten seconds of rest. If you ever track your rest in a workout, you probably have noticed that ten seconds is a pretty short rest. However, for the majority of workouts we do and the time domains we hit 10 seconds is more than enough. Today we practice that. In your scaling aim to put yourself in a position in which you can work for the 20 seconds, and commit to only resting in the prescribed intervals. You want to be in that place in which you want to stop moving, but you know the rest is coming, and so you fight to hang on. That's the sweet spot today. Choose a weight for the deadlifts that allows you to get 8-12 reps per set and that you think you can hang on to for the eight rounds. On the push-ups, choose a modification that allows you to keep moving with great mechanics. If you have handstand push-ups but only sets of 2 or 3, you need to work on your stamina. That means you should lower the difficulty of the skill and work on volume. Box handstand push-ups are your friends. Today is also a good idea to alternate the pushing movement with a handstand hold, a headstand hold, or a tripod hold. This will guarantee you are working for the whole interval while gaining capacity in the key positions of the handstand push-up. Check the options below for ideas. HANG ON!

8 rounds for max reps of:    


20 seconds of deadlifts, rest 10 seconds

So do you do all 8 rounds of deadlifts THEN go to 8 rounds of HSPU? I think it would be fun to alternate deadlifts and HSPU each 20 seconds and just do 16 rounds in a row that way.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT

This is one you are really going to need to take a harsh look at your fitness capacity. Yes, you can do 225-lb. deadlifts, yes you can do hspu, but can you do them consistently enough to make this workout enough for the day?


PURPOSE

Remove some of the stamina factor from regular Tataba and allowing for more intensity by alternating exercises


NEW TO CROSSFIT SCALE

AMRAP in 8 minutes of:

6 deadlifts

:30 handstand hold


rest 4 minutes then repeat again


TRAINING SCALE

Make the deadlifts light enough to go 20 seconds straight through and scale the hspu to push-up or some other variation that lets you take no more than 1 quick break per set


PRACTICE SCALE

As listed, just make it 16 rounds instead of 8. Makes it less tempting to go fast and let form break down.


INJURY SCALE

New to CrossFit format, just using one upper body pushing movement and one midline-focused movement


GROUP SCALE

Probably practice scale for most people


WARMUP

Handstand

Hip extension

Kb swing

Squat

Kip

Jump rope


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 5

Globo scale: as rxed. If your gym prohibits HSPU, or they can't be done because of gym setup, sub heavy dumbbell push presses. If your gym doesn't have a barbell sub heavy dumbbell deadlifts (ideally 50/70lbs). Hotel sub dumbbell deadlifts and push press, 35/50lb dumbbells.


Day 2 at Wodapalooza was good and bad. The swim wod was A-ok, but the Worm hung my team up bad ( lots of no reps for squat depth). We will fight hard tomorrow!
