- Back Squat 1-1-1
- Shoulder Press 1-1-1
- Deadlift 1-1-1
WOD Notes: This is an annual benchmark and an opportunity to cross off some 2019 goals! After warming up, you’ll have THREE attempts at each lift to establish a one rep max. Choose your attempts wisely! Your score is the sum of your highest squat, press, and deadlift. If you’re curious, click HERE to read a 2006 CrossFit Journal article about the Total. Compare to 181029. Rx today requires wearing a costume! (Plus, it is scientifically proven that wearing a costume helps you PR.)
Nutrition Challenge Notes: The results are in, and we are thrilled to announce the winners of our 2019 Fall Nutrition Challenge! First though, we want to give one last congratulations to everyone who participated in the challenge; we wish we could have picked more than 3 winners because there were so many awesome performances. But the following three athletes really stood out, so without further ado:
- Beginner – Diana G followed Level 1 (Eat Real Food) for the 6 week challenge. Her performance test improved across the board, going from 4 to 6 strict pull ups and PR’ing her row. Outside of ICA, she ran a 5k and cut 3 minutes off her previous PR! Diana’s before-and-after InBody test showed an overall loss of 3% body fat.
- Advanced – Tobin followed Level 1 (Eat Real Food) for the 6 week challenge. Despite being a 4-year member, this was her first nutrition challenge, and she jumped in full force. Her performance test improved across the board, cutting nearly a minute off her metcon time. She dropped 9 pounds of bodyfat, while gaining muscle, for a net 6% decrease in body fat percentage!
- Spirit – Kirsten followed Level 2 (Weigh and Measure). Despite being new to ICA, Kirsten came into the challenge with lots of nutrition knowledge and prior experience with the “if it fits your macros” diet. For the challenge, we increased Kirsten’s overall calories, but her committment to eating only high quality, real foods resulted in her shaving 2:20 off her metcon and losing 15 pounds overall. During the challenge Kirsten also PR’ed several lifts including her deadlift and clean.
As the Advanced and Beginner winners, Diana and Tobin will get $50 gift cards to Kettlebell Kitchen, and Kirsten will receive a beautiful gift basket donated by Kimberton Whole Foods. Please join us in congratulating them on a job well done!
