Congratulations to all our members who participated in the Whole 30 this month! It took a lot of dedication and hard work on your part, and we are proud of each and every one of you.  We cannot wait to hear about the things you discovered on your journey (appearance/body changes, observations, habits, etc.) and hope that you created many positive changes for life.

We will be recognizing our participants at our CFMG 3 Year Anniversary Party on Saturday, October 13th, 2012 at 6pm, and giving out some prizes to the “winners” (although, let’s face it: we were all winners in this).  Six prizes will be given out: 3 to the top points awarded in the challenge, 2 to the top male and female with the most improvement in the assessment WOD, and 1 to the individual with the most overall pounds lost.

In order to determine the winners, if you have participated in this challenge, we need you to do the 4 steps outlined below.  You cannot be rewarded for all your efforts unless you have entered in all your information!

1) Record your final points for the week HERE

2) Record your 2nd assessment WOD score HERE

3) If you took your weight/measurements and IF you would like to share with me, please let me know, as one prize will be awarded due to weight loss.  Again, weight-loss alone was not the goal of this program, but we do know that some of you have experienced significant weight loss and we would like to recognize you for it.  E-mail me at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

4) Please post 3 things in this document that you have observed/discovered about yourself during this Whole 30 (this can include cravings, habits, patterns, body composition, sleep, WOD performance, new discoveries, etc.) HERE

Do you feel changed?

Today, at 5pm, J&J Grass-fed Beef will be visiting CFMG to talk about their CSA Program. Jay will describe the CSA Program, the farm and partners, and answer any questions you may have. He have some beef jerky to sample, and will also bring a "starter pack" of grass-fed beef (2 packs of ground, a roast, and steak-frozen) that we will raffle off to one luck winner at the end of the meeting. CrossFit Mission Gorge will be a "Pick-Up Site" for this program if we get at least 5 people to participate. There is no long-term commitment, delivery is the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 1-4pm, and your meat will be stored in a freezer at CFMG until you come pick it up. If you know you want in right now, please visit their site to sign up, select CrossFit Mission Gorge as your pickup site, and enter your payment information. Looking forward to another great local partnership!

We are also set up to have our body fat measured today at Fitness Wave San Diego via the dunk test from 6-8pm. Cost will be $40 for the test ($20 savings). Call (858.573.9283) or e-mail to set up your appointment and let them know that you are from CrossFit Mission Gorge! Want to know what it's like to have yourself "dunked"? Check out the video HERE

“You Pick the Lift”

Snatch -or- Clean and Jerk 6/4/4/3/3

The first set of 6 reps should be relatively light but aim to make the set of 4 reps around 70% of your 1RM, add weight to the barbell as you move through the sets. Work on pulling yourself under the barbell in a full squat, even on your lighter sets. You goal should be to develop the correct movement pattern! You have plenty of time to finish your strength training so SIT DOWN and REST between sets.

This Friday we will be starting our Mobility Class
