Workout of the day blog

Next weeks programming June 26th:

Next weeks programming:

‘Constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity’ (Also known as CrossFit)

 

Next week there will be approximately 30 workouts in a hat, before each class one workout will be drawn from the hat. After a 10 minute warm up the workout will be performed.

Be ready for anything!

 

One of the main tenets of CrossFit is the ‘constantly varied’ part of the definition. In order to keep moving your fitness level forward you need to constantly change the stimulus. The human body adapts to a training stimulus quite quickly and if you keep doing the same thing over and over you will actually become less fit as your body becomes so used to the same stimulus. To put it simply you need to regularly change the type of workout that you do and how long you do it for.  

 

CrossFit founder Greg Glassman uses the phrase ‘the biggest change that occurs from doing CrossFit occurs between the ears’ - What he means here is that you develop tremendous mental strength. You develop a ‘ready for anything’ mentality. Physical suffering develops mental strength. I’ve seen that with myself and with most of the people that I’ve trained down through the years. You develop a confidence that no matter what life throws at you, you will be able to handle it.

In order to maximise your development both physically and mentally you need to step outside your comfort zone regularly, I would suggest at least twice a week. It’s not advisable or possible to push your limits every day but every second or third training session you should get uncomfortable to the point where you are close to or in the red zone. This is the area where the beauty lies and it is the area where most progress is made.

Next weeks workouts could throw up something quite straight forward or a real tough challenge to complete. Foster the mentality that no matter what it is you can get it done.

I know I can and I know all of you can, some of you just don’t know it yourselves yet.  Next week you will find out…

THE CROSSFIT OPEN!!

WHAT IS THE CROSSFIT OPEN?

The CrossFit Open is an annual fitness event that takes place in CrossFit gyms Worldwide. CrossFit Headquarters issue a workout on the CrossFit Games website each week for 5 weeks. There is an advanced and scaled version of the workout.

 

AM I FIT ENOUGH TO DO THE CROSSFIT OPEN?

The CrossFit Open is designed to be inclusive. There is an advanced and scaled version of the workout. There are also age categories 35-39/40-44/45-49/50-54 and so on.

 

DO I HAVE TO REGISTER?

If you would like to register officially then go to the CrossFit Games website and register. Each week you submit your score and the gym owner will validate the score. It’s $20 to register officially.

 

CAN I DO THE WORKOUTS WITHOUT REGISTERING OFFICIALLY?

Yes. Each Monday for the next 5 weeks the CrossFit Open workout will be the workout of the day at CrossFit Mallow. We will run our own in-house Leaderboard on the whiteboard at the gym. There’s no fee for registering. The goal is just to get people involved and to have fun.

 

IS IT A COMPETITION?

If you want to compete then register officially to get your ranking. If you don’t want to compete then just do the workouts without registering officially.

 

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE CROSSFIT OPEN?

The end goal is to find the fittest man and woman alive at the CrossFit Games in America in July. No Irish person has ever got that far so it’s unlikely you will either. The real point of the CrossFit Open is to test yourself against yourself and see did you improve compared to last year. The sense of achievement, community and accomplishment is also wonderful during the 5 weeks of the Open Season.

 

ANY ADVICE FOR THE NEWBIE OR VETERAN ATHLETE?

The Earth will keep spinning whether you do well in the Open or not so keep perspective and have fun. It’s a workout - that’s all it is and all it ever will be.

For advanced CrossFitters the Open can become a bubble within a bubble. It can become all-consuming and that’s not healthy physically or mentally. We have a number of members of CrossFit Mallow that have competed in every Open including Michael Kennedy, Neil Lucey and Tadgh Carroll and Gerard McAuliffe. (If there’s more my apologies!) Ask them for advice on the right approach to taking part, if they’ve managed to stay the course for seven years they must be doing something right!

Movement of the month for February.

Handstand development.

Fear not, if you currently cannot do a full handstand for there are a lot of progressions that you can begin with such as the wall climb or inverts from a box. If you can do a handstand the aim is to be able to hold it for 60 seconds. Once you can do that the aim is to start developing the free standing handstand. If you don’t try to get out of your comfort zone you’ll never get anywhere so be brave and get upside down!

November: No Sugar No Alcohol.

That was a lot of rowing yesterday for just one litle glass of wine!

The idea behind exercising the calorific amount in various foods isn't so that you'll never again enjoy them but to make you all realise that working out a few hours a weeks unfortuntely doesn't give you free reign to eat what you want.

'Falling into the weekend eating trap'...
You can undo an entire weeks training and healthy eating in 20 minutes of eating the wrong foods. Most people fall in to that trap each weekend. And then they wonder why they are not getting leaner?!

If you truly want to become fit, lean and healthy then you need to 'manage' most weekend as well as you 'manage' the weekdays.

This week we burned the calorific equivalent of 1/4 of a scone, half a Croissant and a glass of wine. Next week will see a few more similar items:

A Pint of Guinness = 210 calories
Taytos = 184 Calories
Can of Coke = 139 Calories
Chocolate covered Rice Cake = 84 Calories
A slice of White Bread = 79 Calories
A heaped tea spoon of sugar = 25 calories
Cadburys Dairy Milk (49gram) = 260 Calories
A Big Mac Meal = 1,120 calories!!!

All of the above items will be placed in a hat and one drawn after each class each day next week. Say a little prayer you don't get the big mac meal!!!

November - No Sugar - No Alcohol

I hope everyone on the 'November - No Suar - No Alcohol' programme managed to stay the course over the weekend!

If you didn't, then try again for the week and go for it again next weekend. It can be done!

Weekends are most peoples downfall when trying to eat healthy. They'll do great all week then eat all around them at the weekend because they think they 'deserve it'.

...

If you did avoid all sugar and alcohol over the weekend how are you feeling this frosty November Monday morning?
How are your energy levels?
How is your mood?

For this week i want everyone to aim to drink 2-3 litres of water every day and minimise tea and coffee to 1 or 2 cups a day (with no sugar!)

A fun month of training ahead!!

November Training Plan:

A: Choose the Front Squat or Overhead Squat.

B: Kipping (Swinging) Pull Ups and Toes To Bar are allowed again.

C: There will be ‘finishers’ a few days a week. Some of the finishers will be based on burning the same amount of calories in items such as biscuits, buns, fizzy drinks, chocolates, sweets so you can equate the calories in those items with the amount of exercise needed to burn it off.   

D: Aim to increase weight on the bar for the snatch and clean & jerk if techniques allows.

E: There will be some short high intensity conditioning workouts.

F: Wednesday will continue with long moderate paced aerobic workouts. They have been extremely popular so we will continue with them.

Next Saturdays Class!

Next Saturday Mornings CrossFit Class TIME CHANGED to 9.30am!!!

A few people have asked me to change next Saturday mornings CrossFit class to 9.30am to avoid a clash with the Ghostbusters 5km so we'll go ahead with that - provided there are no objections!

The Ghostbusters 5km starts at 11.30am and you can pre-register via the website so all you have to do is collect your race number (or have someone collect it for you)

...

The Ghostbuster 5km is a family fun run with optional hallowen fancy dress it's not really a day for chasing personal bests so it will be possible to do the CrossFit class and the 5km.

'CrossFit Stretch Class'

NEW CLASS ADDED TO THE TIMETABLE FOR THE NEXT 6 WEEKS.

'CROSSFIT-STRETCH'

Starting Wednesday Oct 26th at 6pm.

...

- Improve flexibility
- Improve joint range of motion (ROM)
- PR your overhead squat and snatch
- Reduced injury risk
- Become able to tie your shoe laces!

The class will take place in the gym. We will make use of equipment such as foam rollers, barbells, stretch bands, boxes and the rack.

The class will start off with myofascial release using the foam rollers and move on to utilising effective stretching techniques such as proprioceptive neuromuscalar faciliation (PNF) and static or assisted stretches.

All are welcome to attend.

(Note: the CrossFit Wednesday 6pm class goes ahead as normal)

The week ahead:

In this article:

 

Why kipping is kipping banned?

Why are Sept, Oct and Nov the ‘Best 3 months of the Year’ for getting Fit?’

+

Training for the week ahead:

 

September, October and November are the Top 3 months of the year for making real improvements in fitness. There is a collective focus and commitment to work during these months. Over the next 3 months you can become fitter than you have ever been before if you work hard.

The three months after Christmas are also quite effective at fitness improvements but the problem lies in the fact that usually all of January and half of February are used up simply undoing the damage caused during the month of December.

Commit to training hard and eating a healthy diet 6 ½ days a week for the next 12 weeks and you will make unbelievable progress.

 

Programming for the next month will include:

High Volume Weight Training with 8/10 Rep maxes and high rep accessory work to develop strength endurance and build muscle tissue.

Long Aerobic Conditioning Sessions to build an aerobic base, this will also have an effect of burning a lot of fat so if you eat clean you’ll get lean.  

Kipping is banned for the next few months. Perform strict toes to bar or knee raises, pull ups, handstand push us, muscle ups. Taking a break from kipping for a few months each year will help reduce injuries and develop ‘CrossFit longevity’. Kipping is very demanding on the joints connective tissues; muscles, ligaments and tendons. Reducing the loading on the joints caused by hundreds of kipping movements performed each week can only be good for long term joint health.

May Weekend

GYM CLOSED BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY MAY 2ND.

May

April was a tremendous month at CrossFit Mallow.

There were lots of welcome new and returning members and there was a noticeable focus, energy and determination about the place. It seemed as if everyone was playing their part in unison with the strive towards greater fitness for us all. And then along comes a bank holiday weekend…

‘Activity May Weekend- Murph and Mountain Biking'

...

I purposely targeted the May Bank Holiday weekend as an ‘Activity Weekend’ with the goal of keeping everyone on track for the month ahead. I expect May to be as good as April was in the pursuit of our fitness goals.
Long weekends are disruptive to our rhythm and can knock us out of sync. Like most of the rest of you I will enjoy this weekend with a few glasses of wine Sunday night, maybe go out for lunch and eat some chocolate but it was be back to the eggs, fruit and nuts on Monday morning and back into the rhythm again come Tuesday. The first few workouts of the week will be with a partner, it helps to share the workload and raise the intensity for the rest of the week.

I hope to see 25+ people attack the Hero workout Murph on Saturday. If you have used your weekly allocation of 2/3 sessions you are still welcome to come along and join in for this one. I’ve completed Murph 5 times and it’s a great workout, there’s a great sense of satisfaction in completing it. See you Saturday and hopefully on Sunday.

For Mountain Biking you’ll need:
A bike that can handle rough terrain with good brakes. Bike hire is available, book in advance.
Helmet and cycling gloves
Water and food
Padded Cycling shorts
Spare tubes and tyre levers.
Rain jacket
Bring 1 and 2 euro coins for the bike wash/shower/vending maching/coffee.
€5 per car in the car park

3 Eay Steps to success!

Create and maintain the habits of the successful people.

 

Success comes to those that make a habit of fruit full pursuits. They ingrain good habits into their daily lives. It doesn’t come any easier to them than it does to the next person but what sets them apart is they become so habitual in their weekly routine that it becomes easier to be successful, to attain goals and keep moving forward.

 

3 Easy Steps to Wellness and Success

Prioritise the following 3 easy steps to wellness for one month and see where it takes you:

Number One: Sleep.

Get quality sleep every night for one month. Get to bed before 10pm on a week day and before 11pm on a weekend. Avoid eating 2 hours before bed and avoid more than 1 glass of wine or beer each evening. Ensure the room is completely dark.

 

Number Two:

Exercise a minimum of 4 times each week. At the start of the week pick the days that you will exercise and get it done no matter what. CrossFit, running, walking, cycling- the list is endless- the main thing is to move nearly every day. Humans are not designed to sit down all day in an unnatural environment such as an office, factory, school etc. We need to undo the accumulation of negative energy and stress and the best way to do that is to get moving in a natural way.

 

Number Three:

Eat like your grandparents used to.

Eat 3 square meals a day composed of real food. Eat fat - it won’t kill you but sugar might.  Avoid processed ‘carb-age’.  I never saw my grandparents eat a pizza or drink a can of coke, did you?!  

 

Getting the basics right with sleep, exercise and nutrition will bring a sense of wellbeing and wellness. The more consistent you get the further along the ‘wellness continuum’ you will travel becoming healthier and fitter.

The basic pillars of sleep, exercise and nutrition cannot be skipped over in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle. Are you searching for the ‘magic pill?’ – You’ve just discovered it!

 

At CrossFit Mallow we help create healthy habits, we educate on how to exercise safely and effectively. We focus on the pillars of success and getting the basic right. Surround yourself with 100 like minded people and success will come your way too.

 

 

 

 

 

WOD Monday

A nice week of workouts ahead. Pick the days you are going to train and don't let anything get in the way of getting to the gym. You can have results or excuses...

The early morning 6.45am class is a fantastic time to workout. Nothing gets in the way at that time. If you get to bed before 10am then it's easy to rise early and start the day off in a great way. Sunrise is appox 6.30am these days and it's a beautiful part of the day that most don't get to see.

Open 16.3

Open 16.2

Move over Dan Bailey!

Well done to Maureen Linehan and Der O Connor who both performed amazingly well in Open 16.2 this morning. They both successfuly completed the workout finishing the 5th Round to complete 430 reps each scaling to 95lb's and 55lb's. Neither Maureeen or Der are actually registered for the competition but that doesn't mattter, what matters is that they did the workout and gave it everything they had. Maureen set a Personal Record on the squat clean with 55l...b's during the warm up and then hit it for a whopping 55 reps in the next 18 minutes!! That is what taking taking part in the Open is all about.

Both Maureeen and Der barely finished Round 1 with just 2/3 seconds to spare but they picked up the pace for rounds 2 and 3 and finished well inside the time cap. During Rounds 4 and 5 they were hurting but they both dug in deep as the finish line was in sight. It was inspirational to watch!

Open 16.2 is a beautifully designed workout that will test all levels of ability and fitness. It's a great one to go head to head with someone of a similar level to you. Niall and Tadgh are going to go head to head - date and time to be confirmed...

Best of luck to everyone completing the workout this afternoon and this evening. Enjoy it!

NEW TANK TOP!

NEW HOODIE!

NEW T-SHIRT DESIGN!!!

NEW T-SHIRT DESIGN!

Massive thanks to Neil Lucey for designing a very unique CrossFti Mallow Logo.

An edgy look that ties in hundreds of years of local history in the completely original design. Thank you also to Michael Kennedy for his input and ideas with the logo design. Resident Official CFM Fashionista Patsy Kelleher also gave her stamp of approval, so we are officially good to go!

...

I wanted this T-Shirt to be the best CrossFit Mallow T-Shirt we have ever designed. This is the 6th batch of official CFM merchandise and without doubt it it the best by far. We've taken our time and got it right.
Wear with PRIDE!

Hoodies are also being designed and a female style tank top. They will be revealed this week. You can pre-order your own T-Shirt or Hoodie at cost price as soon as the T-Shirt Company finalise the total price.

The story behind the Original design by Neil Lucey and Michael Kennedy:

Neil Lucey:

The Image combines a face two deer, two swans and a river. The reason behind the Deer is that on the grounds of Mallow castle is one of two herds of white deer in Europe. Queen Elizabeth 1 donated two white deer as a gift because she had agreed to serve as Godmother for a daughter of the castle's lord. This was the beginning of what is now our herd of white deer.

The swan, which appears in the fourth quarter of the coat of arms, refers to the Irish name Magh Ealla, Plain of the Swan.
The face just looks cool!

The Motto

This appears on Mallows coat of arms, it means from fire and water. It refers to the sacking of the town carried out by British forces in September 1920 during the War of Independence and the fact that the lower parts of the town are subject to flooding from the river blackwater.

Michael Kennedy:

The motto "Per Ignem et Aquam" Per Ignem refers to the sacking of the town carried out by British forces in September 1920. During the Irish War of Independence, the town was the HQ of the North Cork Militia – known as North Cork Rifles. The town's RIC barracks was the only one captured nationwide during the war. In retaliation, several main street premises were subsequently torched by the British Army. The et Aquam referral is to the fact that the lower parts of the town were subject to flooding from the River Blackwater.

If you want to go Froningesque - Transivimus per ignem et aquam et eduxisti nos in refrigerium - Psalm 66:12 We went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance

The white deer are descended from a herd of white fallow deer, given to the Mallow Castle by Queen Elizabeth 1st.
