Crossfit D WOD – Shopping list!!
We have always maintained that in order to see the best gains in your performance in and out of the gym, your nutrition should be the focal point. You do not get better from working out, you get better by recovering from a workout. Proper nutrition helps you recover faster, which in turn makes you perform better. Like it or not nutrition is the foundation to a healthier life .
We do not preach any one diet, although diets can help people stick to a program better and we suggest certain ones to people from time to time; Paleo, Primal, Zone, etc. However, it is easy to get stuck on one diet looking at scales and points and calories and other numbers that ultimately mean nothing in your overall health and wellness.
The easiest thing to prescribe is to eat natural foods such as lean meat, vegetables, nuts, seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. That’s the easiest way we can say it and the fastest way to recovery, muscle gains and fat loss.
We just rapped up our Look good feel good challenge last week and the result show average of 5% drop in body fat with and 15% increase in work capacity .This all happened in 30 days so imagine what could take place in 60 days .
The winner of the challenge was Conour Sweetman with the most improved score in BF% and work capacity.
Body fat % went from 28% to 23%. And the work capacity went like this:
|23rd January 2012||20 February 2012|
|– Clean: 27Kgs
a. 20 (6kg)
b. 40 (16lbs)
c. 32 (20″)
|– Clean: 36Kgs
a. 41 (6kg)
b. 47 (16lbs)
c. 40 (20″)
The scores above tell the story in relation to what we hoped to achieve by the challenge. It was also a platform for the challenge takers to educate them selves by asking questions around the food choices and the long term effects food has on our bodies. Knowledge is power as you all know so you should have it around what food you are choosing to take in.
