flux update

I have a few announcements for you.

flux's affiliation application was accepted by CrossFit. flux will soon become flux CrossFit.

Next week Mike from Bronco Plumbing is doing the rough in for the flux bathroom!

The bathroom will have a shower and changing area that will be partitioned off from the bathroom sink. There will be another small room with a toilet.

I have ordered 2 more medicine balls - 8pounds and 14pounds.

Some of you may have noticed a cute little welder hanging out in the attic of the garage. That would be Tawney installing the hardware for the........rope!

It's Bison Time!


I am in the process of ordering another bison and I wanted to give you the opportunity to order some meat as well.

Why eat bison?
-Bison has less fat than chicken and turkey.
-Bison has a healthy Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acid ratio.
-Support local farmers and small businesses. The bison meat I order comes from a small family farm outside of Rose Valley Saskatchewan. The butcher is also from Rose Valley. The animal is grass fed and never goes to a feed lot. This is incredibly important for both ethical and practical purposes. The pre-slaughter environment of the animal is critical to the tenderness of the meat; the less stressful the environment for the animal the more tender the meat. The animal is killed on site and the animal does not have to undergo the stress of being transported to a feed lot. Also, the health benefits of grass fed bison in comparison to bison that are fattened up at a feed lot are numerous.

If anyone is interested let me know via email.

the kettlebell swing

video video
Charity (35p), Jane (35p) and Kim (25p) all have very decent kettlebell swings but each of them could make improvements. Charity should further engage the hips and hamstrings simply by bending her knees a bit more and pushing her hips back. Jane hinges too much at the hips and hence her chest comes too far forward. Kim, on the other hand, doesn't hinge enough and she is too vertical.

These are small things that when corrected will make their kettlebell swing much more efficient.
