The conventional food we are eating on a regular basis is one of the single most factors for sickness today. Food is linked not only to life-threatening issues like obesity, heart disease, and cancer but many other life-irritating issues like acne, mood swings, menstrual pains, allergies, heartburn etc. During this Seminar, we will examine the science behind ditching grains, legumes, and dairy, plus learn how our mind, body, and spirit can adjust to a new lifestyle.

What will we learn?

-All details, rules/regulations about the paleo challenge
-Some science behind the body and the gut

Hoosier CrossFit Presents:
2nd Annual Winter Rendezvous!WR2013


WOD 1: Video

AMRAP 14 min
1 person working at a time, can split reps up in any manner (but weight must be changed out by athletes in the M/F division for partner to begin work on deadlifts)

3 rounds: 25 deadlifts (115,165#), 25 pullups, 50 double-unders
3 Rounds: 20 Deadlifts (135,225#) 20 burpees- jump to a bumper plate, 40 double-unders
3 Rounds: 15 Deadlifts (165,255#), 15 toes-bar, 30 double-unders

*if the final round of the above is finished in under the 14 min time frame, teams will begin back on the first 3 rounds of work at the lighter deadlift. every rep counts.
*partners must also physically tag team partners hand before moving onto next reps/movement etc. if changing positions.

WOD 2: video

10 min to develop 1 rm ‘bear complex’ for both partners.
*each team will have 1-45# bar + a full set of plates totaling 320#.

Bar must begin from the floor with plates loaded and clamps on bar. Bar can be power cleaned or full cleaned, but must touch shoulders in receiving position, and then pass through full depth squat. after standing from squat barbell will then travel from shoulder-overhead by thruster, strict press, pushpress, pushjerk, split jerk and have control of bar with feet together, then lower bar to back rack position and complete 1 back squat, after standing will then perform 1 back rack-overhead in same manner as from the front rack. Once they have control of the bar overhead bar can be dropped and a score can be acquired of whatever the weight on the bar is.

Partners may take as many attempts and can go up or down in weight as needed throughout the 10 min. Total score is both partners weights combined.

WOD 3: video

AMRAP 6 min. (scored in 2 parts)

Partner 1 begins on rower and rows 500m. for time to the tenth of a second.
While Partner 1 is rowing, P2 is performing the following:
ascending ladder of thrusters and box jumps
1 thrusters (65,95#), 1 box jumps (20,24”)
2 thrusters, 2 box jumps
3 thrusters, 3 box jumps…
Once P1 finishes on the rower, P2 will then row 500m. for time and P1 will pick up where P2 left off on the thruster and box jumps

If both partners complete the row in under the 6 min time frame they may both work together on continuing with the thruster/box jump portion, working one person at a time, switching whenever needed.

Final score is 1. the AVERAGE of both partners on the 500m. row.
and 2. the total reps completed on the thrusters/box jumps
