Coach's Corner
This workout has been developed by Neal Maddox to be the first of 2 benchmark workouts. It is modeled off one of the original benchmark workouts and adapted to create appropriate skill levels for our wide range of athletes. The original workout was only 1 round no matter what the skill level, but we are challenging both our level 2 and level 3 athletes to take it up a notch with 2 rounds.

Pick a level based on your current abilities, not because you feel like you should be an X level athlete. The goal is to move as quickly through the workout as possible without getting stuck on one movement due to it being too heavy or too advanced of a movement. We will be retesting this workout in 6 weeks for all CFM members. Enjoy the workout and this variation on the Baseline!

And coming tomorrow...

20 Minute AMRAP “Open Test”
50 Wall balls (20/14) to (10/9ft)
50 Double Unders
40 Box Jumps (24/20”)
40 Toes to Bar

CFM Lurong Championship Challenge Results

Congrats to everyone who completed our first Lurong Challenge. We announced the winners this week at the gym. Here are the results:
1st Place Overall- Hope Hunt
2nd Place Overall- Michael Aaron
3rd Place Overall- Sarah McColley
Most Improved Female- Christina De Giulio
Most Improved Male- Kevin Moylan
Best Diet- Hope Hunt

Awesome job everyone!

"Awesome job everyone!"


Congratulations to all of our Lurong participants for completing the challenge! Thanks to our sponsors for donating prizes throughout the challenge and for the CFM winners: Reebox, FitAid, Hylete, and Lurong Living. Participants who successfully completed the challenge receive a commemorative T-shirt, "Test your limits, then break them" and the top winners receive prize apparel from Hylete. Special shout out to Kevin Moylan and Christina De Giulio who were our male and female "most improved." They showed the greatest change on both the workouts and their weight/measurements. Another shout out to Hope Hunt who also had awesome improvement across the board and the highest overall score (Diet, Workout Performance, and Improvement)!

These 7 weeks tested our discipline and commitment and we emerged with some awesome results:

Measurements
The average person lost 5 1/4 inches over 7 body measurements. The waist was the number 1 area for losses- hips were number 2. The average person saw 5% of their waistline disappear which is more than 1 1/8 inches per person.

Weight Loss
The average person lost more than 6 1/4 lbs. As a whole CFMers lost over 100 lbs and that's all excess body fat (How do we know that isn't muscle loss? See Performance Gains). 100% of people lost weight.

Performance Gains
The average person improved their performance and work capacity by more than 15% measured in the 23 minute Champion Test Benchmark. In the Olympian Workout, participants improved their strength and ability to move large loads quickly by more than 4%. These improvements shatter the fallacy that eating "strict or clean" results in performance loss. Said differently, you don't have to sacrifice performance when eating right or losing weight.

At the end of every Challenge we like to take a minute to reflect on what we have accomplished. Our goal is to gain strength from our achievements in order to give us direction and drive for the next Challenge. That the end of the Challenge is just the next step in our journey. Now that we are riding high from our success from the Championship Challenge, we can carry that momentum into the new year and setting goals for 2016! Great job everyone!
