Yes, you need another one of these! What Lindsey is talking about in the video goes well with the quote above. Combined they should provide enough motivation for quite a while. Aren’t you glad I post these?

DAILY FEATURE: Better Sleep (Something you probably need)

A few days ago I heard someone say something along the lines of “you break your body in the gym, refuel it in the kitsch, and rebuild it in the bed.” There in a nutshell you have the recipe for successful performance enhancement. On the specific topic of rebuilding your body in bed (aka getting enough QUALITY sleep) I found this great article by Tabata Time referencing a Mark’s Daily Apple article on how to improve your sleep quality.

Lately, I’ve been paying a lot more attention to my sleep as far as amount and quality are concerned. I’ve increased my average by about an hour a night and the results have been fantastic. Lots more energy during the day and a major increase in muscle production! Follow these tips and get your sleep dialed in.

CF Endurance 6-Week Running Drill Program Week 2 Day 2

  • Drills – Ball of foot hops with forward lean 3 x 10, wall drill 3 x 20 each leg, forward lunge 3 x 10 each leg.
  • 2x through of: 4 x :60s @96 cadence, 4:00 @ 91 cadence.

Core:

  • Plank 3 x 1:30, :45s left, :45s right
  • Hollow rocks position hold 3 x TF with albs ankle weights. Time: :37s, :38s, :33s.

After completing the CrossFit Endurance seminar I was still pretty shaky on the fundamentals of the pose position of running, at least in the application sense. What’s more is I didn’t have much confidence that I’d be able to make progress from working on the drills on my own. Fortunately, I was completely wrong! After just two weeks of the prescribed six of running drills, I have made drastic changes in my running form and technique, all for the better. What’s more is that these changes are coming much more naturally and comfortably. I can now get into the proper positions and run in the proper form without much physical or mental effort. Can’t wait to see where I am after six weeks!

AFTERNOON SESSION

REST, RECOVERY, MOBILITY AND STRATEGIZING ALL FOR 14.5 TOMORROW MORNING!

Feeling the Itch!

Rock Candy Mountain in Olympia. Just for the hell of it!

Taking another off day and literally having to force thoughts of training out of my mind… Especially after the release of 14.1 and watching Fisher and Hendren go head-to-head! Overall though I will say that I’m feeling stronger. Every night before bed I’ve been taking 10mg of melatonin and a serving of Progenex Cocoon, and also turned the temperature in my room down to 68 degrees and my sleep has been great! This good rest coupled with the fact that I’m still eating like I’m training has lead me to feel strong, solid, and ready to go! Looking to do some light technique work and crush 14.1 on Monday morning!

Check out this video by Barbell Shrugged featuring Brian MacKenzie and Athlete Cell as they breakdown and strategize for 14.1!

I love the Progenex commercials (and their products!) Simple, motivating, cool. And this one featuring Sam Briggs is my favorite! Watch them, get inspired, then go train. And take your Cocoon!
