Thursday 23rd July

WOD

Nothing programmed. Use today for recovery or catch up.

 

Here are a couple of podcasts you might enjoy:

Tim Ferris and Charles Poliquin talk about (but aren't limited to) Strength Training, Shredding Body Fat, and Increasing Testosterone and Sex Drive. This is very informative and frequently hilarious. If you enjoy this you might also want to check out strengthsensei.com.

From what I've listened to so far the The Julie Foucher podcast   takes a slightly different view of CrossFit. Celebrating the achievements but focusing more on the health and wellbeing angle.

Another podcast from Tim Ferris - Laird Hamilton, The King of Big Wave Surfing (Plus: Gabrielle Reece and Brian MacKenzie). As with all of the TF conversations thing meander all over the shop. This is a fun conversation to eavesdrop on.

 

Events

Free taster - Classes running on Thursday 30th July at 1730 & 1830. Go forth and find someone you think would enjoy or otherwise benefit from discovering SCCF. Have them book into one of the sessions here.

Tribal Clash - There's a team heading to Devon for this event running 21st-23rd August. Last I heard Amir was looking for a lady to compete. Speak to him if interested in that or about the spectator crowd. This is the third year of Tribal Clash and the third year Second City CrossFit have competed. There is no doubt that this will be spectacular and well worth a weekend away from home.  

Second City Super Total - Weight lifting competition on Saturday 29th August. Make a max effort lift in each of five categories (Snatch, Clean & Jerk, Squat, Bench and Deadlift). Judged to IWF and IPF standards. More details will be released soon but basically you'll have a 30 minute window to work towards and complete each lift. £20 entry. Open to all. Book here.
