Gabe Goes Beast Mode!
I like how the nutrition challenges we do keep me on track and help me reset things when I’ve drifted a little bit off course with my nutrition. Many of our challenges involve not doing bad things so I thought we could mix it up with a fun little 2-3 week challenge in July that focused on 2 positives. The first: Drink only water. Delicious water. Now stop yourself for a second. You’re about to ask something like “What about xxxx?” The answer is no. If it’s not magical unicorn pee that guarantees you’ll crush Rich Froening and Annie Thorisdottir at the CrossFit Games then don’t drink it. There may be one tiny exception but sadly enough it won’t be coffee. Second: Eat 10 different vegetables or fruits per day. If you want to lean out stay focused on the veggies, if you’re fine where you are maybe go with a 7:3 or 6:4 ratio.
We’ve found challenges are more fun when there’ s a buy-in. And a cash out. I’m open to suggestions on these but am thinking the buy-in could be 5 Rounds Fight Gone Bad on a Saturday morning and if you don’t finish the challenge it’s “As many burpees as possible in 30 minutes.” The last time I did the 5 round FGB I had the heavens open to me and started to journey down the tunnel of light somewhere around Round 4. So that workout is a winner. I can’t possibly think of anything I’d hate more than 30 minutes of burpees which will ensure my compliance. We have two options for start dates: Start on the 5th of July and go until July 26th at 5pm. Or wait until after the CrossFit Games and go until July 31st (2 weeks). Let me know your thoughts and if you’re interested.
