Monday August 3, 2009: "Going Paleo"

Nice shoes Joe.


"August Paleo Challenge"

It's on people.  Time to start eating more like our ancestors.  That means we're going to do our best to eat only vegetables, fruit, lean meats, nuts and seeds, and heart healthy oils.  And conversely we'll be avoiding sugar, high-glycemic carbs, processed foods, dairy, alcohol, and caffeine.  Make sure you get your starting point measurements (FGB score, weight, before pic) in by Wednesday.

We'll try to post a new paleo friendly recipe every day along with the WOD.  If you have a good one you'd like to share, please email it to me so I can post it.  Good luck!


"Fight Gone Bad"

3 rounds, for as many reps as possible of:

  • 1:00 Wall Ball (20#/10ft target)
  • 1:00 Sumo deadlift high-pull (75#)
  • 1:00 Box hops (20")
  • 1:00 Push-press (75#)
  • 1:00 Row (for max calories)

*Rest precisely one minute between rounds.

*The clock does not stop or reset between exercises.  On the call of "switch", you must get to the next exercise and begin as quickly as possible.  You will add your total reps and calories (Row) for all 3 rounds to get your score.


  • Will you be joining us for "Paleo August"?  Are you looking forward to it? Dreading it? Any questions about the nutritional guidlines? Post these, any other thoughts, and your "fight gone bad" score to comments.

YAY TEAM CADENCE! I am very much looking forward to Paleo August. Let's do this! I can say from personal experience that eating paleo the last few months has been fairly easy and surprisingly yummy. I am a bit nervous though about cutting out my wine as that has been my one vice thus far. Power in numbers I suppose... :) I have some good recipes that I have tested out and will email to Josh this week. Good luck everyone!
