6 Week F’N Fit Challenge: April 22nd – June 3rd 2017
The 6 Week F’N Fit will start Saturday, April 22nd and end June 3rd. We will be hosting a Nutrition talk at the box on Saturday, November 5th starting at 9:00am. Weigh-ins and measurements will on Saturday after the Nutrition Talk.
Your daily food intake will be on the “honor system”. We aren’t going to get super nerdy about what constitutes Cleaning Eating. Just make sure you are eating lean meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit (berries) a little starch, and NO SUGAR. We also want to stay away from all grains, alcohol, breads and processed foods. The 1st 3 weeks we are allowing string cheese and plain Greek yogurt, but not in the last 3 weeks. If you goal is not to lose weight you may also have 1/2 cup of cooked rice per day. Approved protein bars for the challenge will be the quest bars, The ONE bar or Rxbars, only one per day. No paleo desserts are allowed. Stay away from fruit that are high on the glycemic chart: bananas, pineapple, grapes, cranberries, dates and raisins etc… These are trigger foods for Carbaddicts. Eat more green vegetable and light on starchy vegetables. We will allow a Post-WOD supplements and protein powder. To exclude those items would be silly.
The challenge is based on percent of improvement in metcon, strength and body composition. For the Clean Eating journal tracking and working out 5 times a week will be scored based on how many days you train plus recording your food. For recording food, write type of food, amount and what time of day. Your Food Journal or my Fitness Pal App are due every Friday at midnight, other wise no food journal points for that week. We will also be added (Homework) Skills and Cardio. Each week we will have different skills/progressions and different cardio distances to complete.
Food Journal must be email to Pam every Friday by Midnight. email@example.com
