So many things.
First the great news. I have been able to help a bunch of people this week with chiropractic, nutrition, classes, and personal training.
I am grateful to be able to do that. It's an awesome feeling to be able to wake up and pursue my passion.
Second, what is up with this photo?
Why the completely arbitrary broad generalizations!!! Are there people over 50 who should not do these, absolutely.
Are there people under 50 who should not do these, absolutely.
However, let's not throw the baby out with the bath water!
I have a client in her 60's doing all of these movements to help build bone density and help mitigate the effects of osteoporosis.
Also, what is with all the hate about someone doing keto, is it just the name? Like if we say low carb, is that ok? Or I eat veggies, that ok? What's the deal?
I have people who do great with it and others who hate it. There is no one size fits all. Done correctly it is sustainable. Done wrong it's a disaster waiting to happen, just like every other dietary modification.
NOTHING WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
Calm down, stop being so dogmatic.
And somehow I ended up stop a soapbox. I'll get down now.
With commitment comes #PROGRESS . ⬇️
Join us tomorrow, Thursday 27th September to track your progress with our "CrossFit Total WOD!"
The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at your BACK SQUAT, SHOULDER PRESS and your DEADLIFT.
"The Total" is CrossFit’s approach to testing absolute strength, deeming these movements the “three most effective lifts in existence for developing and testing functional strength.” It was first posted in the CrossFit Journal on December 1, 2006 and also appeared at the CrossFit Games this year. We hosted it at Replay on 4 April.
Beginning athletes (JumpStarters) should treat tomorrow as an opportunity to practice and get comfortable with heavier lifts or as a great starting point in order to track future progress.
See you at the Box!

Working up to an RPE 9 single. A cheeky rep PR at 60kg too.
Body weight bench is soooo close, but kinda not haha.
Also, I got told I have the arch of the century so can my arch correlate to a good bench please thank you #cjbstrong
And after almost 5 months without deadlifts here's my come back 💪🏼
My one rep max is 110kg and I used to start my warm up sets at 65kg.
Yesterday I didn't want to over 70kg as I could feel I've lost loads of strength and it wasn't as easy as before but at least my form is still correct so let's build it up again!
Triceps have 3 heads. Lateral, the long head and the medial head. You can exercise different heads with different variations of exercises though all three heads are included in tricep exercises. Additionally if you focus on compound movements like bench press and shoulder press your triceps gets good enough of work.
Lateral head is the visible head and exercises like tricep push down and dips works on that. The long head is the back portion of the triceps which is hit by over head exercises.
The medial head is least visible and sits right below the long head, exercise like tricep push down with ropes instead of bar hit this head a bit more. Although any push down exercise will hit both the heads.
Overall all the exercises have similar function so you’re probably hitting all of them to some extent. If you feel any one area is lagging then you can include those exercises which hits that area more.
Skillset, Mindset and your Toolbox.⠀
When you focus on all three, you become unstoppable. ⠀
Most people focus on the first one, some may focus on the second one, but not many know how important it is to have high quality tools.⠀
Let me explain... and this will apply to ALL aspects of your life, not just in training.⠀
Your skillset is your ability to execute a skill — the strategies you use to create an outcome. The more detailed AND unconscious your skillset is, the faster you can produce results. ⠀
Your mindset is your beliefs, values and your attitude. I'll go deeper on that later.⠀
Side note — when people think they have a MINDSET issue, 99% of the time, it's actually a skillset issue. They haven't been taught how to do things the right way which produces beliefs that they can't do it. ⠀
The last one is just as important as the first two: your toolbox. Your body is your tool. The better you take care of it, the better it will serve you.⠀
Tools are internal just as much as they are external. ⠀
The better you take care of your body, the better you take care of your external tools.⠀
The better you take care of your tools, the more your skillset and your mindset will amplify to your ultimate goal.⠀
How are you maintaining your toolbox? Does it need more maintenance? Does it need upgrading?⠀
You have all the power to choose.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer
Although @k_calcraft and I are battling it out to hit our respective numbers first, we’d much rather keep each other accountable and see each other succeed.
Was planing 3x3 @ 92.5kg. I only managed to hit the third rep on this second set. Look how happy Kit is when I stick the third rep, that’s what it’s all about #RoadTo105#Hench
Idag hände något så ovanligt som ett renodlat marklyftspass, det var kul, får ske oftare och regelbundet framöver!!! (typ skärp dig Stina). Jag körde 8x40/8x50/5x70/5x80/3x90 (lätt och @ivweissenberg sa att det såg ”extremt bra ut... ” så då blev jag ju på riktigt gott humör. Därefter 3x100 (också lätt) och 3x110 (filmen, fick anstränga mig men ändå helt ok). Tänkte därför att en etta på 115 skulle avklaras utan problem, men så noterade jag ’publik’, andades fel och löjlade mig och släppte stången som jag trodde knappt lämnat marken men som visst kommit en bit upp ändå... fick då mental coachning av redan nämnda Bella, och jag gjorde därefter ett nytt försök. Det var tungt men med mål att inte släppa stången så krigades den ändå upp och det var otroligt skönt... Därefter 5x8x70 och en del stångrodd och lite omvända flyes. Mer komplettering blir det i em/kväll. #deadlift#ilikeit#mustrememberthat#mentalissues#herewegoagain#strongat54#lostvilla
I've love conditioning days, I think it's more to do with how my body feels post the session on such days. Truth be told, working on muscular endurance is a prime requirement for everyone and coming up with innovative ideas to do the needful poses a challenge of it's own.
Today I chose two of my favorites and made it a time based routine with 20sec of deadlifts, 20sec battle rope waves and 20sec break, did that for 10min ... It's afternoon now and I feel like I'm still burning calories from the mornings workout.
Try and tag. 💪🏽 #tryingsomethingnew#conditioning#battleropes#midweekmadness#wave#deadlifts#instafit#ificanyoucantoo#coachFatBoY#deadlift#fitness#battlerope#functionaltraining

Equal PB, no taper and after a back niggle the last couple of week. Look coach, I didn't drop any 😅🤗 No complaints here 🏋️♀️💪 Huge thanks to @pbphysio for touching up a couple of under-conditioned areas earlier in the week 💕
Rainy days lead to sunshine, tough times lead to pleasant times. A quote from coach @jnidz_grind_n_shine that will forever stick in my mind. Prep wasn’t easy but god it lead to a pleasant time up there 🙌 #allsmiles#icntas#icntassie
I’m sorry I’ve been completely MIA lately guys, aside from zay and I being super sick, sometimes I just need a break from social media, it gets tiring trying to keep up with comments and other posts and what not.. but here I am, back again with another selfie... what has my insta fam been up to the last week?!?!? ❤️🤦🏼♀️
A little deload week before seeing where I am at after this make-shift powerlifting meet in a week. Currently at a bodyweight of 172# and looking to drop to 165# by Sunday (all of that will take place in about 48hours). After about 6-months off of any type of powerlifting or powerlifting programming, we will see where I'm at after 9-weeks of getting back on. Remember my starting numbers I posted a while back, we'll compare them after sunday.
Took 70% v. 6-chains (120# at the top) x5x2 (335# + 120# of chains)
