WOD for Monday. Diet Contest OVER! Awards Ceremony remains. Clear your schedule, and rsvp in the comments.February 15, 2016
The 2016 Diet Contest is concluded, with only the winners left to be determined. As in past years there were some great results, some ok results, some complete lack of results and a number of dropouts.
To my dropouts: Sometimes life intrudes and it’s just the wrong time to tackle big changes. I am aware of extenuating circumstances for some of you, but several more people didn’t take after pictures to my very great surprise. If there’s changes to the contest that could be made that would’ve helped you finish, please give me your input.
Remaining is what has become known throughout the Cape Fear Region as THE Social Event of the Season: the Awards Ceremony!!! Where our two winners will get their $400! In year’s past, winners have: quit their jobs the next day, blown it all on P90X Videos, hoarded every last cent in a bottle of diet Cheerwine hidden in their crawlspace, rolled around on the floor giggling in ecstasy, and flipped off all the “losers” at the party and peaced-out right after. It’s always fun to see the reactions!
Please take this seriously: Any and all CFCB members are invited. Contestant or not, you are welcome. Spouses yes. Kids No. Drop outs, you definitely should go, as you helped pay for the supplies. Details and address to follow but count on a start of 7-8 PM and a finish 2 or 3 hours later. So 7-11 is the absolute largest window. Everyone attending, please rsvp in the comments as soon as possible. This stands to be the largest awards ceremony we’ve ever had and a head count would be VERY helpful to Joey J. our gracious host. Please bring a food item to share and/or something to drink if you don’t like soft drinks and beer. Those are provided by CFCB.
On a different note….
It’s Valentines Day. Partner WOD. As follows. Both Open Prep and Diet Contest.
“The Couple that Cleans Together”
For time: Partners alternate through a simple barbell complex: 1 Power Clean, 1 Squat Clean @ 155/110. Mixed Gender Partners use separate bars, same gender uses the same bar. Play to your weaker member’s tolerances. Each partner will hit the cycle 15x. So 30 pulls off the ground total.
“The Bicycle Built for 2”
Airdyne for total calories: 2 men 100, 2 Women 70, Mixed Pairs 85. Partners can alternate whenever they wish. Partner NOT on the Airdyne must maintain a Parallel Squat Static hold.
“Jack & Diane”
Elements of the two benchmark workouts Jackie and Diane spliced together. Split anyway you want.
21 Deads At 225/155, 21 HSPU, 15 Deads, 15 HSPU, 9 Deads, 9 HSPU, 1000m row, 50 Thrusters at 45/35, 30 Pullups.
Chet Baker and the like are the soundtrack. Adapt and overcome. Fun Sh*t, for sure.
