MOVEMENT QUALITY OVER MOVING FAST

Your focus today should be on moving well and with quality in mind versus moving fast just to get it done.  Adjust the weights accordingly so that you can go through a full range of motion for every rep.

Once the two EMOMs have been preformed you will have the choice of either doing some mobility or another conditioning WOD.

THE GEO-BASE CYCLE WORKOUT PLUS A BIRCHER MUESLI RECIPE

Today you will be hitting a workout that many of you would have done a short while ago.  Hopefully you recorded your result (because we all know how important it is to keep track of our performances) so that you can try to do better this time around.

Much of the training we have done over the last couple of months has been focussed on conditioning (improving your engine) and technique.  So not only should you be fitter (you have bigger work capacity), you should also be moving more efficiently.

Get after it!

BIRCHER MUESLI RECIPE

This is one of easiest meals to make and it is chock full of goodness.  The base is oats soaked overnight in coconut water or almond milk, then you can just go to town and add whatever fruit, nuts and seeds you want.  It is healthy, nutrient-dense and will give you plenty of energy for you to get through your day.

  • 1 cup rolled oats (organic is best)
  • 1 cup either coconut water/ or almond milk
  • 1⁄2 cup slithered or whole almonds
  • 1⁄4 cup sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds (or both)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1⁄4 cup goji berries/dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 grated apple
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon •
  • To serve:
  • Handful strawberries/berries
  • 1-2 tbs natural yoghurt
  • raw honey (optional)

Instructions

1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, including the grated apple.

2. Cover the lot with the coconut water or milk. You can make up the extra fluid with tap water to ensure everything will soak. Cover the oats and let them soak over night in in the refrigerator.
