We are adding a 730pm class on Monday and Wednesday nights starting next week.
Trainer Chuckles will be coaching.
I whip my hair back and forth.
Chris and I decided to make a couple changes to the Paleo Challenge Benchmarks. Since push-ups are hard to judge we are going to do max burpees in one minute in place of max push-ups. Also, instead of doing a max attempt of thrusters in 2 minutes, we are going to test for strength excluding the conditioning component, and record a max deadlift instead. We prefer that you do the burpee and row test first, that way you are warm for your deadlift. Make sure you complete several warm-up sets at a lower weight before going for your max deadlift attempt. Give yourself enough rest between tests!
There have been a lot of questions about oatmeal and greek yogurt. Since these food items are on the more favorable side, but still are not considered paleo, you may subtract -3/serving instead of -5. Also, there have been a lot of questions about post-workout cheats in the 30 minute recovery window. If you have a cheat within 30 minutes after you finish your workout, you may subtract -3 instead of -5. And (since I know I will get this question) if you eat greek yogurt or oatmeal in 30 minutes post workout it is only -1 point.
Please remember that you need to find a journal to log your food, and to contribute $20 to the prize money. Please bring cash with you, will not be accepting credit cards.
