Who’s ready for “Murph” on Monday!?
_
Even if you’re not a CrossFitter, I think it’s always a great experience to participate in this workout once a year. Besides the fact that’s it’s a really hard workout, it gives you such an appreciation and respect for the ones who serve for us on a daily basis. For about 1 hour you will be wearing about 1/3 of the weight that the average soldier wears for most of the day. You will also be performing reps that are another fraction of a much larger number that is required to be where they are now. Small dues to pay for the amazing lives we get to live in the best country on earth.

“Murph”
For Time:
1 mile run
100 pull-ups
200 push-ups
300 air squats
1 mile run
* All While wearing a 20lb vest*
_
Do a little research on the workout and see more reasons why it’s such a big deal. For first timers I recommend cutting those numbers in half.

Straight off the airplane and into my favorite place. Stopped by the gym to say to hi 👋 to everyone and get one of my favorite little burners in!

EMOM x 10min:
10 Cal Ski erg
10 Alt DB Snatch #50 *both in the same minute

Don’t forget I’m giving away a ski erg to one lucky person who signs up for CHALK Online in the month of May! You have 1 week left to sign up and be in the running. There’s some pretty incredible odds of you winning... Just saying.

It’s a wrap! @yayasview and I just finished 3 amazing podcasts up here in Scottsdale Arizona. We got to sit down with the CEO of @opexfitness , the man the myth the legend @jfitzopex , and director of coaching at OPEX @mikeleeopex .
_
We dove into business strategy, growth, and development for gym owners or aspiring gym owners. Athlete/Coach relationship and all the tools needed to exceed in your “Why.” Lastly, we hit a one hour brain growing and straight knowledge bomb dropping session with James Fitzgerald. I’ve looked up to that man personally for a long time, so I’m super excited for the opportunity to chat with him and share that episode with all of you.

Listen to Real Chalk on the @shruggedcollective and it’s like reading the summary hundreds of books. 🍻 Cheers to the greatest job in the world and to the best fans in the world. ❤️

Episodes will be coming in hot this June. #itshotasfuckhere

Overhead Lunges
_
I’ve been incorporating a lot of these lately and I have to say that’s it’s becoming one of my favorite movements. You’re getting an amazing core workout with the added benefit of squatting and unilateral movement. You can throw shoulder stability and booty work in there as well.
_
It really bothers me when I see all these people on social media trying to reinvent the wheel and showcase random movements. Sure they work, but if the goal is size and lower body fat, it all comes back to the same stuff. Volume, food intake, and a lot of the traditional lifts that have floated through the world of bodybuilding and fitness since the beginning of time.
_
Rather than invent, just add variation. The real secret to all the gains in the world is called, “pain.” The last few reps that you aren’t willing to do. The extra set, the extra 30min in the gym, ordering the healthy dish on the menu in front of your friends, and going to the shitty hotel when you’re traveling. Nothing will ever supersede that.
_
Remember... It’s suppose to be hard af. Otherwise everyone would look the same.

One of my “go to” workouts when time is not on my side.
_
EMOM x 10min. (both in the same minute)
2 Heavy Snatches
4 Muscle Ups
_
I’ve also done this with muscle snatches and strict muscle ups. As well as with power cleans and muscle ups which is probably my favorite combo. 3 cleans at 225 and 4 muscle ups. When I first opened my gym and I was coaching all the classes, this was literally my regionals training. I got to do 2-3 of these a day with zero warm up and that was it. I still remember those times when I do this little circuit and it brings back all the feels. Give it a go sometime if you have 10min to spare 😘.

Figured I’d get after a traditional farmer carry today to switch up the challenge. (Two 88s in hand 💪🏾).
_
Not familiar with the challenge this month?
THE CHALLENGE:
30 days of a 400m SINGLE ARM carry (so you just need 1 kettlebell). Must compete 200m straight before switching sides. Can be held as shown in the photo or an overhead carry is permitted as well. Recommended weight is 70/53. Get good at that and you can add. Does not have to be unbroken, like the swing challenge.

A lot of people out there preaching kettlebells are really into “flows.” I however am not into that... I like taking traditional interval workouts that you would normally do with a bar and just swapping it out for kettlebells. It gives you a reference point in terms of time or performance as well as the morale of working out with everyone else and not looking weird. There’s also the unilateral aspect of kettlebells, which I think is most important. Working 1 side at a time is great for balancing your body out as well as working your core. And let’s be honest, as people who do “functional” fitness... Moving a Barbell has way less everyday life transfer than kettlebells. Not saying barbells don’t transfer over, but the inconvenient nature of a kettlebell in certain positions is just more applicable. I absolutely love both, so I’m not taking sides, but with the large shift we keep seeing over to kettlebells, it’s nice to hear some reasons why. Not to mention how insanely convenient it is store them. I have one in my living room and in my car at all times.

My Biography / Who am I?
_
My entire life has always been about fitness. At the age of 12 I was a world ranked BMX racer. In high-school I ran track and set records at just about every distance while also playing lacrosse and football at the varsity level since my freshman year. I was the kid who stared at the TV and promised his parents Olympic gold in something. Commercial breaks always included push-ups and sit-ups and I was already obsessed with nutrition. I knew I had found my passion at such an early age.
_
As I grew up I got into skeleton and bobsled qualifying for the US Olympic Team Trials for both sports. I had 7 CrossFit Regionals appearances, with multiple top 5 regional finishes and top 20 worldwide open finishes.
_
I struggled for years trying to make a career out of everything I accomplished, but it never equalled enough money to live. Throughout a series of events, I actually spent a few months as a couch surfing homeless kid in San Diego, CA. While I didn’t have enough money to live on my own, I still had the fire in my soul to do what I loved and I never let go of my true passion. Eventually, I qualified for a huge event with all the best athletes in the world with a free admission given to me by the owner of the event. He felt sorry for me, but could tell that being part of that event meant so much to me at the time. I got 2nd place, against all of the best athletes in the world that weekend. Athletes I looked up to for years, watched on YouTube, and aspired to be like on a daily basis. That homeless kid made a name for himself that day and I hold onto that moment with every breathe I have.
_
That passion radiates throughout my gym, my programming, and to all the people who join and coach at my gym. This is why CHALK is known around the world as one of the best gyms with unmatched community and programming. So much so, that hundreds of gyms around the world follow the very same programming that you will get when walking through my doors.
_
I also host the #1 podcast in health and fitness on iTunes, consult for large companies, BA in physiology, helicopter license, and I’ve created programs for fire, police, and the US Military.
