All classes will run as normal except the 9.30am class which will commence at 11.00am instead.

The WOD will be followed by a BBQ and drinks, probably around 12.00pm - 12.30pm. Feel free to bring along any family and friends, but please let us know by Thursday, for catering purposes.

TOP DOG 2

With TOP DOG this year including Individuals, Teams & Masters we have had to find a bigger space to accomodate everything. The day will be split over 2 locations. We are fortunate to have a great location just a few hundred metres from or Box. Jamison Park Netball complex will be a great area to showcase CrossFit.

The Address is; Cnr of Batt St & York Rd South Penrith

I have outlined a timeline below. Im still finalising some heats so just use this as a guide at this stage.

Registration - 7.30am-8.30am

WOD #1 9-11am
Masters
Teams
Scaled
Rxd

WOD #2 11-12.30pm
Masters
Teams
Scaled
Rxd

12.30-1pm Break
Pack up tents etc and walk to CFP Box (300m)

1- Finish (Approx 2.30pm)
Team WOD #3
Masters WOD #3
Scaled "Top 5 Shoot out"
Rxd "Top 5 Shoot out"

Presentations

This will be a full day of competition, but I'm confident of sticking to the schedule with everyone's co operation. The Masters & Teams will do 3 WOD's each & the lowest ranked Athlete & Team will be Crowned the winners.
In the Scaled & Rxd division, there will be 3 scoring opportunities with a cut to get the final 5. These athletes will also be scored & ranked in the same manner as the Masters & Teams. We have a good mix of elements to test on the day and I'm sure everyone will have fun. We see TOP DOG as an "unoficial ticket" to the world CrossFit Games as 50% of the athletes that made the podium last year ended up competing in Carson City Los Angles.

Rest Day



Anyone who knows me through CFP knows my admiration & passion for the Masters. This not only extends to CrossFit & the intro from CFHQ last year to formally start up the Masters Catergory (50+) in competition.


My interest in getting people active in the 50+ age range has been a mission of mine for some years now. Any CFP regular knows Margaret & she is without doubt my greatest success story, whilst she was very active when I met her, she had a frozen shoulder & was advized that it may not ever improve. She thrived since starting a "Seniors Strength & Conditioning" program that i kicked of a few years back when I was working in the land of Globo. In the last 12 months she has moved on to CrossFit as her primary source of Strength & Conditioning.


It seems that more and more evidence is accumulating regarding the benefits of high-intensity (or at least higher-intensity) exercise well into the golden years of life. It appears that a fairly strong case can be made for exercise improving one's quality of life, and there may even be a case mounting for high-intensity exercise extending your life (although certainly not as strong a case at this point, since studies on the interaction of exercise and life extension are still a fairly new area for examination).


I was put on to a recent NY Times article "The Incredible Flying Nonagenarian" (see link at end of post), Olga Kotelko is profiled. Olga, a masters track athlete who currently holds 23 world records, 17 of them in her current age category (90-94 years old), doesn't show any signs of slowing down.


The article is a fascinating portrait of Olga, but is also a nice discussion of high-intensity exercise and its benefits, as well as some discussion of what's going on at a cellular level when it comes to aging. The author of the article even points out that some scientists now view aging as a mitochondrial disease.


My favorite tangential excerpt had to do with a researcher's findings on NASA and its astronauts, their loss of muscle while in space (a well-documented occurrence in space travel), and their suboptimal exercise program. They were using a program centered around treadmills, a stationary bike, and a resistance machine.



The researcher's recommendation: "Trappe concluded the regime wasn’t nearly hard-core enough. His prescription for NASA: heavier loads and explosive movements. 'It’s pretty clear that intensity wins up there,' he says."


The article is a great read, albeit a long one, so grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and read up:

The Bear

WOD The Bear

The bear is what's known as a complex. In other words, you will do a certain sequence of exercises in order to complete one "rep" in this workout. You will complete 7 "reps" in each round, for a total of 5 rounds. Starting Rxd weight is 35/25 and ending weight is on the individual. Goal here is for max loads, not time, so there is no time component. Rest is as needed, but with a catch: If you are in the middle of a round, there is no resting with the bar on the ground. The bar must stay off the ground (however you want to) until that round of 7 complexes has been completed. After the first set of seven is done, you can put the bar down to rest, add weight, and chalk up as needed.This is the complex to be completed:

Power Clean
Front Squat
Push Press
Back squat
Push Press
(Aim to be at MAX load by round 4 or 5)

You can combine the front squat/push press and the back squat/push press into thrusters if you wish, but you must stand in the clean prior to attempting the front squat or thruster. Like I said, 7 reps of the "Bear" per round, 5 rounds total, max loads. Post loads to the comments, and have a great time with it.

Foodee Project

You would of noticed the the link on the right for "Meal of the day" hope you find this new resource of some value. It came about from Matthew Lucas from CrossFit Southwest in Tempe Arizona & in true CrossFit style was happy to share with the community. I have an extract from an email he sent us. Let us know what you think & dont be shy in contacting Matthew to let him know also.

I want to share something we have been using with great success at our gym that I have been developing over the past several months called the Foodee Project.

One of the main concerns our members have with trying a new diet or lifestyle as outlined by the paleo or primal-style diets is they don't know where to start. We can give them great, compelling articles and research on the merits of these diets, but without a good source of easy, delicious recipes, people often waiver and fail. It is our job as coaches to make sure we give our clients every possible opportunity to succeed! Instead of assuming members will seek out their own healthy recipes, why not bring the meals to them?

The Foodee Project brings the best of the web's recipes for a paleo/primal diet to one central location. The "Meal of the Day" is a widget we have developed for the Foodee Project to make these recipes readily available to your members. All you have to do is insert a snippet of code into your website or blog and it automatically delivers a new paleo/primal friendly meal to your site every day.

If you decide to do todays workout Rxd and wish to have an Rxd next to your name keep this in mind. You must open your hips and stand tall on the box jumps either on top of the box or in the air, you must come all the way down on the bottom of the pull up and straighten the arms and get the chin over the bar on the top of the pull up, you must do American Swings ear showing at the side, you must get the rear knee to the ground on lunge steps, knee to elbow means knee touches the elbow, push press head through window & no re-bend of the knees, back ext or Good Morning go to parallel, burpees the chest hits deck, double unders is Rxd, single jump rope is scaled.

*Scaled version “Dirty 30″ is 30 reps of each exercise!

Recovery = Progress

I raised the question yesterday regarding CrossFit changing from a GPP program & what people thought about it. This has been running through my mind for a while now & I have started & re written this same post a few times over the last month or so, as I have chopped & changed my view slightly. When I first done my CrossFit Cert Course, the programing was certainly more of a GPP program & in some ways a lot more easier to program (schedule) workouts. However with all the coompetitions coming through & CrossFit becoming a legitimate sport (Enter the CrossFit competition Athlete) the programing across most Affiliates has evolved with it. Ill cover a bit more of it tomorrow perhaps, as what I wanted to cover today was how an athlete at CFP should approach their WODs on a daily, weekly & monthly basis.

As coaches,we get a lot of people coming up to us & saying "Its sooo hard to do this everyday, & now I havnt hit a PB in a while" Whilst the advice verbally from our Coaches is usualy the same, for some reason somethings still get lost in the translation. So as Head Coach & the guy who programs, heres some tips that might help.

An Athlete must work hard to provide the stimulus to improve, but improvement will not occur without sufficient recovery. Given that everyone does a variation of the same workout and that workouts are programmed on a four day cycle, only one of which is rest, what is the best way to continually move forward while avoiding stagnation or performance regression?

The general CrossFit recomendation is 3 days of work with 1 day rest, however at CFP I still program a WOD on that day which is why you will see Rest Day Then For those coming in to CFP (The WOD) as not everyones lives permit a 3:1 workout format, & for those people we have outlined somewhat of a plan, but more of that another time.

When I program, I aim high & the workouts are designed to provide a stimulus significant enough to challenge the fittest people in the gym. Add to this a demanding three on, one off schedule and the tools are provided to make great gains. Enter periodization.

While it is easy to get lost in the complexities of the subject, periodization involves performing periods of work towards a goal, followed by periods of active rest and recovery. Then the cycle starts again. Almost no athlete can withstand exerting maximum effort during every workout. You should not try to do so, either. Within a four day cycle, it is important to approach each training day intelligently and to choose those workouts which you will tackle more aggressively. Freddy Camacho of CrossFit One World recently provided some excellent ideas related to this topic. You must choose your battles.

Progress occurs incrementally. It will be rapid at first and slow down as time goes on. As the gains begin to slow, it is time to consider some periodization. For many people at CFP, it will make sense to divide your training into monthly and quarterly blocks. For three weeks, you workout as you normally do, keeping Freddy's ideas in mind. On the fourth week, you deload, or scale things back by 50%. What does 50% mean? Good question. It may mean doing half the number of repetitions. It may mean using half the weight. If you are really tired, it may involve both of those ideas.

You should finish your workouts without being exhausted. In fact, you should not be tapping into your reserves during this week. It is active recovery. Take the time to work on precision and technique instead of intensity. When a workout with 100 double unders for time comes up, do 50 at your own pace and concentrate on becoming coordinated and efficient. Work on getting proper depth in your squat with good bar speed at a light weight instead of setting a new 5 repetition maximum. Do you flail around on your kipping pullups? Deload weeks are the perfect time to practice that tight kipping technique Kelly Starret recommends. The goal is to be standing upright at the end of your workout and feeling good. We have three days on, one day off. This can be thought of as three weeks on, one week light.

The quarterly part is the most difficult for many CrossFitters to do. Every twelve weeks, take a week off. That is correct. Don't work out. Make friends with your foam roller instead and focus on getting 9 or 10 hours of sleep a night. Go for a walk. Then come back to the gym the next week and slay.

Rest Day

Rest up, maybe even enjoy a salt bath


The various Games days & the CrossFit Games in the U.S.A is a competition that is growing at a rapid pace. I've heard many opinions on the impact the games will have on CrossFit as a General Physical Preparedness (GPP)program. I'm curious to hear if you have any thoughts?? Do you think the games will have a positive or negative impact on CrossFit? or no impact at all?

TOP DOG CHALLENGE


The TOP DOG Challenge is on again on 12th December. Just like CrossFit has grown in the last 12 mths, the TOP DOG Challenge will be bigger & better also. Like last year it’s a 1 day event which will involve multiple workouts designed to find the fittest in each of the categories. The different categories for athletes to enter will be Rxd, Intermediate/Beginner (same category), Masters & Team (2 Male + 2 Female)

NOTE: Due to the possibility of similtanious WOD's, ie- Individual & Team, an athlete can only register in one category.

Categories of Competition
Rxd
Experienced CrossFitters who perform Main Site WOD’s, WOD’s at their Box as Rxd etc. A competitor in the Rxd category has probably competed at this level previously (although not essential)

Intermediate/Beginner
Is open to anyone who has the “Fundamentals” of CrossFit & the support of their Coach to enter competition, through to someone who performs SOME WOD’s as Rxd SOME of the time. The key word is SOME not all or a lot.

Masters
50+
To keep in line with the events at the World CrossFit Games in Carson, Los Angeles, United States this year. Masters athletes must have a birth date on or before December 12th 1960.

Teams (2 Males+2 Females)
One Team per box will be permitted to register & all team members are to be members/regulars of the Affiliate they represent. The WOD’s will be suitable for any Teams that have well rounded beginners through to anyone who regularly does WOD’s as Rxd. This category will suit Affiliates who intend to have a “Red Hot Go” at booking a ticket to Carson next year right down to the well rounded beginner who wants to compete with a few friends.
The WOD’s will be programmed for this category, with a focus on work rate under moderate load. Nothing overly technical in mind. To quote Matt Murski’s dad in Every Second Counts “Just Grunt & Work”.


Scaling
All categories will allow scaling, however the scoring will indicate "Unranked competitor" for that particular WOD.

In the end, we want this to be as inclusive as possible. If you're unsure of any of the categories or if you're unsure if you're ready to compete, first chat to your Coach. But don’t hesitate to call if you have any further questions.

WOMEN, CROSSFIT, & MYTHS - Part 2

Women will not get big bulky muscles because they just plain don’t have the hormones to build them. It is the difference in the hormonal profile between men and women that causes their performances to also be different. There are several aspects of a woman’s performance that will different from those of a man, all of which depend on neuromuscular efficiency, and all of which are a direct result of lower testosterone levels and the effects that testosterone has on motor unit recruitment, central nervous system excitation and other neuromuscular factors.

You might now be thinking that because there are such big differences, then it must be true what the fitness industry says about the necessity of gender specific programs and exercises. This could not be further from the truth. Women may lack higher levels of testosterone, but we are built the same when you look at our body structures. We are not as different as bunnies and fish. Men and Women, however, both recruit motor units into the same patterns to cause muscle contractions…..just to different degrees. A real world example would be that physiologically, Aaron Rogers and your grandmother operate the same way, in the same sense that Labradors and Toy Poodles are both dogs.

What does this all mean? That the type of stress (i.e. training / heavy strength) will cause the best results in both men and women, only the degree of results will vary. For example, Squats work better for everybody than leg extensions, leg curls, and the Bun Blasters because of the quality of stress they produce. “Squats are performed with the same muscles by everybody, they are hard for everybody, hard enough to produce system-wide stress for everybody – and this is why they work for everybody. Men are more efficient at responding to the stress of squats in terms of elevated testosterone levels, and in this respect men can get stronger and bigger faster.” (Rippetoe) What this doesn’t mean is that women are not served well by using “less efficient” ways to produce stress on their bodies. We just wont get as strong or big as men.
So what should we do ladies? We need to be doing barbell exercises that demand strength, balance, power, coordination, and mental focus to produce a type of stress and adaptation that is superior to either low-intensity floor exercise (or walking on the treadmill) or isolation type machine exercises (i.e. bicep curls, leg extensions). It is the stress that causes the adaptation, and the quality of the adaptation is dependent on the quality of the stress. For example, an exercise that does not involve balance cannot cause an improvement in balance. The stress on the body must target the parameters that need improvement or these parameters will not see adaptation. It is this simple fact that is ignored and/or misunderstood – by the fitness industry, and thus the value of squats, deadlifts, presses, cleans, and combinations of barbell movements with gymnastic skills and track & field skills goes unappreciated and therefore causes an incorrect education of our society.

The other unfortunate aspect is that holding businesses to these truths would complicate their businesses. It is very hard to find qualified staff to train members at optimal levels of skill and intensity. And it will continue this way as long as the standard fitness center pays minimum wage for trainers. Qualified coaches generally get paid more than fitness centers are willing to spend. All hope is not lost! This paradigm is slowly breaking down and we can thank CrossFit! As CrossFit grows and it becomes harder to ignore the results of honest work done at high intensities, the “fitness media” is taking notice. You see more stories featuring the benefits of weight training versus aerobics-only programs.

It honestly isn’t rocket science, as most things in life work in a way that you get out of an effort what you put into it. This is something that we all know, however, we still crack and are willing to believe people who tell us otherwise. We hear 20-min a day and you could look like this, or all you have to do is walk on the treadmill. Unfortunately it isn’t true and we know that because we are smart people.

To summarize my experience as a CrossFit Coach and Affiliate owner for 1 1/2 years, on top of 10+ years in the fitness industry, is that not one of the 180+ women we have trained has gotten bigger and stayed bigger. I have seen a couple women get bigger as the body begins its transformation. However, bigger is temporary. Usually lean mass increases first. Shortly thereafter, a layer of fat melts off the top of the newly acquired lean mass. As soon as that happens, the women are thrilled. For the clients that incorporate a zone/paleo approach to nutrition, the results come quickly and without fail. For those that do not make dietary changes, the process takes longer. And don’t forget that strength will have longer lasting benefits than the immediate tight ass or smaller waist. It will help you open jars, carry your own groceries, move your own furniture, stay mobile and osteoporosis free so you can enjoy a long active life! So get started and pick up some heavy weights to start making the changes that you want to see.

Below article from: http://www.oaklandcountycrossfit.com/

WOMEN, CROSSFIT & MYTHS - Part 1

As I was pondering what to write for today’s post I noticed an article posted to FaceBook by D-Pain (aka Dana). It is titled” “LIES IN THE GYM”. It shows us that one does not have to go far in the average gym (obviously not a CrossFit Gym) to find someone willing to hand out bad information. This article outlines many of the myths that women are hearing about fitness and strength training.

Let me summarize several of the myths this article touches on.

1. Weight training will make you huge and masculine.
2. Men Train. Women Tone.
3. There is a difference between toning, sculpting and firming.
4. Women should stick to machines and stay away from free weights.
5. Women shouldn’t work on their leg and butt muscles, otherwise they’ll get to big.
6. Weight Training Turns Fat into Muscle
7. Women should only lift light weights to not get “bulky”

To quote a famous fitness author, “Women are not a special population. They are half the population.” In an article written by Mark Rippetoe he points out that Women DO respond to heavy physical stress (i.e. lifting heavy shit) differently than men. However, women get the best results when they train for performance (the whole premise of CrossFit and what we do), because even though there are differences between men’s and women’s response to training, there is no difference in the quality of the exercise needed to produce the stress that causes our bodies to change. The different responses men and women see in training are not the ones that the industry, media and popular culture have presented as fact. This unfortunately has had a detrimental effect on women’s training.

The answer to our questions on how to get there are right in front of us. The results, in terms of both performance and aesthetics, admired by the vast majority of women, continue to be routinely produced by advanced athletic programs. Which then amazes me how “body-sculpting sessions or low intensity machine based circuit programs were the approach sold to the public. But then again, “easier” is easier to sell.

The fact is that aesthetics are best obtained from training for performance. It becomes very simple, if you want to look like a lean athlete (the standard most active women strive to emulate) you have to train like an athlete, and the unfortunate part is that most people lack the “sand” for that. Despite this unfortunate truth (most truths seem to fall into this category), the fitness industry continues to see appearances first, as though it is independent of performance. Appearance cannot be trained for. Think about it: I know how to make your squat stronger, but how do you program Bun Blaster sets and reps for a tight ass? I may be able to double your pull-ups in a month, but I don’t know how to give your back that V-Shape everyone craves without increasing your pull-ups. Every single aspect of programming for resistance training that works at all does so because it increases some aspect of performance, and appearance is a side effect of performance.

Appearance can’t change unless performance does, and the performance changes are what we quantify and what we program. Your appearance when fit is almost entirely a function of your genetics, which are expressed at their best only when your training is at it’s highest level, and this level is only obtainable from a program based on an improvement in your performance in the gym. To top it off the best improvements in the gym occur when participating in a program that looks more like performance athletics (i.e. CrossFit) that one that looks like waving your arms or legs around on a machine.

More Unfortunate Truths:

. Your muscles cannot get longer without some rather radical orthopedic surgery.
Muscles don’t get leaner ….. you do!
. There is no such thing as “firming & toning”. There is only stronger and weaker.
. The vast majority of women cannot get large, masculine muscles from weight training. If it were that easy, I would have them!
. Women who do look like men have taken some rather drastic steps in that direction that have little to do with their exercise program.
.Women who claim to be afraid to train hard because they “always bulk up too much” are often already pretty bulky, or “skinny fat” (thin but weak and de-conditioned) and have found another excise to continue life sitting on their butts.
.Only people willing to work to the point of discomfort on a regular basis using effective means to produce that discomfort will actually look like they have been other-than-comfortable most of the time.
.You can thank the muscle magazines for these persistent misconceptions, along with the natural tendency of all normal humans to see reasons to avoid hard physical exertion.

Matt Chan, 1st Place 94kg Division and overall Event Champion



Mobility WOD: http://mobilitywod.blogspot.com/
History took place a couple of weekends ago. USAW and CrossFit teamed up for an official competition. It's a weightlifting meet with a CF twist. There were 3 events... Max snatch, Max Clean & Jerk, and as many rounds and reps in 10 mins of: 6 Squat Clean m55kg/w30kg, 12 Pull Ups, 24 Double Unders. This is a huge deal and my hope is for this event to make the olympics one day.
WOD #1 is inspired by the event.
WOD#1
3 Attempts for 1rm Snatch
THEN
10min AMRAP
6 Squat Cleans 55/30
12 Pull Ups
24 Double Unders
THEN
3 Attempts for 1rm Clean & Jerk

*Their is a continuously running clock. You will get 6min to find your Max 1rm for Snatch (3 attempts max)
*At the 6min mark your 10min AMRAP will begin.
*At the 16min mark you will get 4min to find your 1rm C&J (Max 3 attempts)
