It’s Getting Warm!
CFI Gym Towels are available!!
Hey CFI, the weather is changing (finally!) and with that comes warmer temps. Warmer temps = more sweat. More sweat = the need for a towel (and a water bottle, of course!). If you do not have a gym towel, we happen to have them available for purchase at the gym! Paper towels in the gym are meant for drying hands and cleaning up spills, so let's be a little more green and bring a towel! Let's get sweaty!
Workout for Mon, May 20, 2013
Five sets of:
Shoulder Press x 2 reps + Push Press x Max Reps
(strict press twice as heavy as you can, then push press as many times as possible)
Rest 15 seconds
Push-Ups x Max Reps in 45 seconds
(practice PERFECT plank position – no snaking or loss of midline integrity)
Rest 2-3 minutes
Every minute, on the minute, for 10 minutes perform:
*Work up as heavy as you can, but don’t let your ego get the best of you. If you fail to complete your set within the minute, finish it and then rest the remainder of the minute you ran into. Note total number of rounds or reps completed.

Just Write it Down…
No Excuses (Button), write your results down!
Accountability is the reason why so many athletes have success with our program. At CFI, we define ourselves as coaches not trainers. We are not here to pick up after you, change your weights, or write down your results as you progress through our program. You are accountable for everything that you do inside and outside of the gym to achieve the goals you set from the beginning. We are here to guide you like a basketball coach from the side line. This coach wouldn't stand next to his point guard making every decision/action for him. He stands back to observe and guide the athlete through his career.
We have reminded you since you started your CFI journey that writing down your results is one of the most important things you can do for your success. Yes, it takes time and energy but there is NO EXCUSE. We have even added a feature to the side of our website where we post whiteboard photos every night just in case you forgot your scores. We will stay accountable for updating these scores just like YOU athletes will be held accountable for posting their results to their notebooks and Beyond the Whiteboard account.
It it's worth doing, it's worth writing down...
Workout for Sun, May 19, 2013
In teams of three, complete three rounds for time of:
Row 1000 Meters
75 Kettlebell Swings
50 Box Jumps
Only one member of the team may be working at a time, and no member may begin the next movement until the team has completed the preceding. Tasks may be partitioned as you see fit. Coaches will encourage communication and vocal support of your teammates. Tell your teammate when you are strong and can keep going, and tell them when you need assistance before you expected to need it. The key to quick times is communication and quick transitions.
