Hey everyone! So I will be posting my own workouts here. These will also serve as my programming for the 2014 PlantBuilt CrossFit Team scheduled to compete at the NaturallyFit Games in Austin, Texas in July 2014. Feel free to follow along as well, since this will be a source of transparency and accountability for all participating. As a strength and conditioning coach, I have access to all the bumper plates, barbells, kettlebells, squat racks, medicine balls, dumbbells, pullup bars, and rings I could ever need. I also coach TRX classes, so you may see some of those posted occasionally as well. Now if you don’t have a gym membership or access to this type of equipment, I suggest you get a gym membership or buy equipment if you want to follow along. Body weight movements can only get you so far, so don’t expect the same results if you can not perform the same work. Expect to see 5 workouts a week. My ideal schedule is 3 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 1 day off, repeat. So now on to the workout:
20 minutes to establish a 1 rep max of Barbell Snatch
I do realize I need to upload videos of me coaching the movements, but in the mean time, here is a video link I approve of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0PITbWa0eU
and one more:
then, 20 minutes to establish a 1 rep max Barbell Clean & Jerk, and a few videos:
rest 20 minutes, then, 1 mile sled drag:
Use a weight that you can keep moving.
Post results below.
Hey guys! I now have 5 sets of TRX Suspension Trainers, as well as Kettlebells (ranging from 9 to 53lbs), jump ropes and a few other goodies that allow me to train people anywhere in the Bay Area! The PlantFit BootCamp schedule will be up soon at http://plantfitstrength.com/schedule-2/. I am thinking Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday morning in San Francisco, at either 6am or 7am, and locations still to be determined. I will scope out various locations to make sure the space is free. What do you guys think for time and location? Feel free to respond here or on the facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/PlantFit-Training-Studio/330510723629920 Also, Free BootCamp classes for the month of December. Is that a deal or what?
Hey guys, I recently wrote an article for http://www.veganbodybuilding.com on veganizing a meat and nut breakfast. Check it out and let me know what you think! http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=article_ed_003
This will be my very last day coaching at the Portland Location of PlantFit Training Studio. I will coach all classes except the noon class. The brand will continue to move forward and expand as time allows. As always we will promote rock solid plant-based nutrition, a cruelty free lifestyle, and functional movements mixed in with a healthy dose of intensity. Thank you so much Portland! It has been an absolute honor to be a part of this community for the last 5 years.
Rest 5 minutes.
