A Picture Is Worth A 1000 Words

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words. I was just in my local Coles, but whenever I'm in any supermarket lately I swing by the meat section & check out their supply of Grass Fed/Finished stock. Pretty much all the mainstream supermarkets these days have a reasonable supply of Grass Fed/Finished stock. I remember when I first started buying GFF Meat, you had to know someone who knew someone who,, well you get the idea. The fact I can walk into ANY supermarket butcher & get a good selection of GFF product is a great thing. Check it out next time your shopping.
What I wanted to comment on though is the marketing & psychology used in selling food. The picture posted is not the best, however it's in Glossy black packing & It's a lovely cut of Angus Eye Fillet. 100 Day GRAIN FED, & oh yeah it's also (Wait for it) hand carved, WTF??
Then there's a lovely picture of the Lushest Pasture I have ever seen. All sounds tasty huh? & I bet it is. Well if seeing that Lush Pasture helps seal the deal in purchasing this cut of meat, then wouldn't it make sense to simply purchase the Grass Fed stock? & let's face it, when they say it's 100 day Grain Fed, just remember it's not like Bourbon aging it's pellets, it's cows in "lots" eating junk food so they get fat quickly. It's the cow equivalent of battery hens.
Now I'm no card carrying cult leader & I'm not saying you will burn in hell unless you buy GFF meat, cos it is slightly more (Depending on the cut) what I am saying is if your looking for the prime cuts etc don't be fooled by the gift of the gab. Oh yeah & feel free to tell the next person you share a steak with that you "Hand Carved" it lol


Clean Complex
Perform 7 sets for MAX load
Power Clean
Hang Power Clean
Hang Squat Clean

How far in 10min

Competition Prep Program

The “Competitor Program” is for those athletes who want to maximize their potential in competing in the sport of CrossFit, attending local competitions and looking to qualify for Regionals and ultimately The Games. It is designed to be Additional training & is periodized approach to CrossFit. With cycles focusing on Strength, Olympic Lifting, work capacity, finding and fixing weaknesses, and finally peaking for competition. This will be done concurrently with our existing programing & as a Squad on Saturdays. An Olympic Games Coach will attend periodically to Coach the Squad, which of course will fast track results.To get started I will measure some fitness standards that I believe are necessary for any competitor & these results will determine what "Assistance Exercises" etc will be programed for you & will call for Athlete & Coach to be committed & organized. We will kick it off "Officially" by weeks end & I have already started templates for a few athletes that i Coach individually. If you have any questions or want to book in for your assessment & to learn the Assistance Movements etc just give me a call or chat at the box.
