Wahoo 18.1 done for some! 🙌🏻 Congrats to all our amazing athletes that tested their fitness tonight. Awesome to see the box full of colour and representing our team series of Wolves, Cobras and Bears! Back at it tomorrow to support our community in the first workout of the CrossFit Open 👊🏻🐻🐍🐺

Another epic 20min workout to start this years Open and huge congrats to everyone for getting through it. Can’t wait to support the rest of you tomorrow! 🙌🏻👊🏻
CrossFit Open 18.1, first attempt. This is my are we only 6 minutes in face.
Super pumped when this was announced, I love long workouts. Pretty much all went to plan only 4 reps short of my target. That dumbbell got way heavier than I expected on the presses though. Did the whole wod in unbroken sets finishing with 348 reps.
I'll repeat in 2 days. Target will be 360.
Wow! What an epic night up at Wangara for the start of the CrossFit Open. Check out our Instagram stories for all the fun with our awesome community! Congrats to everyone who did 18.1 tonight and thanks to all that came and supported. See the rest of you in the morning for round 2. 👊🏻🙌🏻
CAPACITY vs. QUALITY//. I’ve had plenty of time to sit and reflect the last days. Much needed. After listening to a recent talk between @dk_movement & @strongcamps the subject of Capacity vs. Quality was on my mind. 🐒 •
We are not built to be robots, we are built to move organically. However, when you choose to undertake a movement practice that seeks technical skills such as the Stalder Press/HSPU/Front Lever.. there are certain aspects of the given movement that need to be understood, and fundamental principles that give these skills their quality. Success is not accomplished by simple reps, but by setting clear intentions that enable clear understanding of the various technicalities. The details are where the gold is here. 🙏 •

I've always been put off about posting things where I'm doing something/anything...but since starting to read "Rise Above - 7 Strategies to Crush Adversity" by Nate Miyaki, I now realise that I need to use it as a tool for progress and improvement and not a tool for comparison. ⠀
In this instance the points for improvement are: straighten my knees, point my toes and push my shoulders down (oh and breathe).
Prepping Cacao Crackle for tomorrow morning’s @chelseajoyyoga Empower Energy yoga and crystal pendant workshop! 😃👌🏼 Yummmm! Added bee pollen, vanilla essence, chia seeds, currants, almond slivers and coconut shreds to the original recipe.
By the time most people reach adulthood, not only have they stopped playing like a kid, they’ve actually lost the functional flexibility required to climb trees, swing from monkey bars, squat in the dirt, and move freely. The good news is you can regain your lost flexibility (and often much, much more), and the benefits you’ll experience go way beyond the yoga mat.

This month of February is the month of Love! So in its honour, I will be sharing some quick facts about Cardio! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Part FOUR: The Basic Guidelines for Cardio Frequency and Intensity
The frequence of your workouts will depend on your fitness level, and your schedule. General guidelines are:
• For health - try moderately intense cardio 30 minutes a day, five times a week, or vigorous intense cardio 20 minutes a day, 3 days a week.
• To maintain weight - you will need about 150-250 minutes (20-35 minutes daily).
• For weight loss, your weekly workouts should consist of 200-300 minutes of moderate and high intensity exercise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• High intensity: This falls between 75-85% of your maximum heart rate (MHR), or a 7-8 on the perceived exertion scale. What is means is to exercise at a level that feels challenging and leaves you too breathless to talk much. • Moderate intensity: This level is between 60-70% of your MHR, or 4-5 on the perceived exertion scale. This is the level you typically want to aim for during your workouts.
• Low intensity: This exercise is considered to be below 50-55% of your MHR or 3-4 on the perceived exertion scale. This is a good level to work at during your warm ups! .
I hope you've enjoyed February's fun fact Friday's on cardio workouts! Stay tuned for more fun fact Fridays!
