In your warm up, include tall muscle cleans and behind the neck rack jerks. Also do some rolling (forward or sideways for beginners) and go through the proper way to roll out of a handstand. For beginners, the sideways roll will be enough.

A note on handwalking - quite frankly, as long as you have a 30 sec chest to wall handstand (you don't need 30 of handbalancing) and you know how to do a proper forward roll, handwalking requires far less skill than handbalancing. So don't be scared to try if you have met the above requirements.   (I have yet to meet someone with a 30- 60 sec handstand that can't, with minimal to no practice, walk a few feet on their hands. Conversely, I have yet to meet someone who practices handwalking but not handbalancing, consistently kick up into a 30 sec handstand.

A. Clean and Jerk
Beginners: From the hang, land as deep as possible with good form.  Focus on re-setting the feet for the jerk after your clean. Also focus on proper recovery from the split.
I want lots of practice reps, something like - 5, 5, 5, 5.

Intermediate/advanced: clean and jerk 3, 3, 3, 3 Go up in weight with each set. If you press out do not go up in weight.

B1. Arms only rope climb x 2  - start from butt. Heels lift off floor first before you even think of pulling. Knees DO NOT have to be locked out; rest 2 minutes x 4 sets

B2. Handstand walks - accumulate anywhere from 6-20 steps (if you do not know how to roll out of a handstand properly, do the following: either candlestick it or handstand to roll) x length of mats; rest 60 sec.  x 4 sets

B3. Pseudo Planche Push ups x 5 reps (resist the urge to push forward on the concentric); rest 2 minutes x 4 sets

B1. Rope climb using feet 1-2 reps (if this is super easy for you then jump up on the rope and do an eccentric arms only 1.1.1); rest 2 min x 4 sets

B2. Handstands - if you are scared of walking on your hands or kicking up into a handstand in the middle of the floor, back a couple of feet away from the wall and accumulate a 30 sec handstand. If this is impossible for you, either reduce the time or kick up and do 10 heel pulls.; rest 60 sec x 4 sets

B3. Ring Push ups x 5 reps; rest 2 min x 4 sets

B1. rope climb from bodyline x 1.1.1; rest 60 sec x 4 sets

B2. Either 30 sec chest to wall hold or 5 kick up attempts, aiming for 5 sec of time under tensions; rest 60 sec x 4 sets

B3. Either 30 sec eccentric push up (if you can maintain bodyline, or elevate the height to which your chest hits x 5 reps; rest 2 min x 4 sets

What's the Flux standard on chin ups and pull -ups? Obviously no kip. The bar MUST make contact with the body. Ideally, this happens at the chest, but start with the neck.  To do this, you must have the strength to roll the shoulders back at the top of the pull - ie. full retraction!

Read Ido's description and instruction on the perfect pull up below.  

Strength Tip Number 3 - The Perfect Pull Up - by Ido Portal

August 30, 2011 at 8:54am
Few people are really capable of doing a real Pull Up - using complete Lat recruitment.
Most will pull towards the bar, only reaching over it with their chins.
Some will be able to touch their chest to the bar, but will do so with rounded shoulders at the top - relying on their subscapularis - a habit that will eventually lead to shoulder issues.
Many do not fully depress shoulder blades nor do they retract it before pulling up - a habit that will lead to injury.

The real pull up is very difficult to master:
1. Start in a slightly wider than shoulder width grip. From a complete hang with shoulder blades elevated, while maintaining locked elbows, depress shoulder blades down and retract them together. Your head should elevate between your shoulders as the lats and scap retractors will 'engage'.
2. From the position achieved in stage 1 start to pull up by thinking of bringing elbows to your sides. Do not concentrate on the upper arms. You should also avoid concentrating on the load - as research shows one should concentrate on the working muscles in order to achieve optimal activation, even if you are not interested in body building - this is an essential cue for you: concentrate on your lats.
3. Pull all the way up until your lower chest hits the bar with shoulder blades retracted backwards and shoulder rolled behind. The triceps of both arms should make contact with the lats and there should be a slight pause at this position for 1-3 sec. The come down will reverse the process, going down at least in 4 sec to complete hang.
4. Repeat for the required amount of reps.

Beginners, most females and generally weak people should concentrate on lat activation work first or will forever rely on their upper arms, Teres Major and Subscap for the Pull Ups and will neglect their Lat development.

Vince Gironda, who was an innovator of many training and nutrition concepts wrote many years ago this description:

Reminder - Dr Shannon Hayes Speaking at Flux, Saturday, Oct 19, 2013

 I highly encourage you to purchase your tickets for the first event in our Entangled Animal Speaker's Series, featuring: Dr. Shannon Hayes, PhD. in sustainable agriculture from Cornell University.

What is unique to all human animals?  It is part of the universal condition that 1: as newborns we are completely helpless and entirely dependent on others; 2. we all require shelter, and three: we must all eat to live.  We know we can live on a poor diet that is void of nutrients, but suffice to say that most of us would like ourselves and our children to thrive - emotionally, physically and intellectually.

Why The Entangled Animal Speaker's Series?
Well, originally I wanted to call it the Anarchist Animal Speaker's Series, but Charity put her foot down.   Every human on this planet is, whether we want to be or not, hopelessly entangled in both the lives of others, but also the environment.  What do I mean by this?

 I can think of no other human activity that entangles us more in both our local and global economy than the food choices we meet. The easiest example is to take a quick look at the sticker on the apple, banana, or orange you are eating. Chances are, that simple piece of fruit has been on a long journey that required fossil fuel for his transport, people power for its harvesting, corporations for its management, geneticists who designed a "superior" product, chemists and chemistry labs researching the best pesticides, potash plants for its fertilizer. The list goes on and on.  That small, seemingly inconsequential act of biting into a piece of fruit, as you can see, positions everyone of us in an intricate web of relationships and practices. 

Radical changes in the way we live begin in the kitchen. In her book, "Long Way on a Little," Shannon writes: "I am asking you to change your life. Admittedly, that statement may see a tad ambitious for a cookbook. After all, this volume was marketed to you as a collection of recipes, not a self-help book. But as far as I am concerned a cookbook, done well, is the ultimate self-help book. It presents a theory for engaging with the most fundamental need in life, food..."

You can purchase tickets from any one of our coaches.
Note: You may attend all of the lectures, or just one or two.  Below is a description of her lectures.

Real Cows in a Parallel Universe:
This is an inspirational/ motivational talk that draws on sustainable farming sensibilities and lighthearted story telling as a way to explore how we can move from an extractive economy to a life serving economy. The subject matter is quite wide, exploring everything from fear and aging to food, growing practices, health crises and healthcare. The content is heavy, but the tone is gentle, tender, and often light-hearted. 45-50 min.
Starting at 1:00pm.

Long Way on a Little:
This program is based on the work from Shannon’s latest cookbook, Long Way on a Little: An Earth Lover’s Companion for Enjoying Meat, Pinching Pennies and Living Deliciously. This program teaches about stretching meat dollars as far as possible through the use of under-utilized resources such as bones and fat, and it examines the basic principles for a low-carbon, meatbased diet from the little-understood viewpoint of nutrient density and blood sugar control. Essentially, when we address nutrient density and minimize our bodies’ demands for insulin, we minimize our hunger, and greatly reduce our food intake, thereby minimizing our ecological impact. In addition to covering basic theory, we’ll spend time learning the basic (and easy) culinary skills required to put theory into action, from making broth and rendering fat, to putting together easy soups, casseroles and stir fries. Lecture time is 45-50 minutes.
Starting at 2:30pm.

Unraveling Consumerism:
Blending her characteristic story telling, unique farm humor, and her uncanny knack for stirring up trouble, Hayes examines the history of consumerism in America, how it played out in the household, the effects it has had on our food system and culture, and how we can recover our households, our communities, our ecosystem and our country. Like much of Hayes’ work, this talk is characteristically controversial, and is likely to stir up debate as well as inspire action, even among those who disagree. Lecture time 45-50 minutes.
Starting at 4:15pm.

$20 each lecture or $50 for the day.

Update - Renovations

Just a quick update to let you know that it looks like we will carry on at the McTavish gym at least through Thursday and into Friday!

As renovations go, we are doing some major work and you will definitely FEEL the difference afterwards. Our contractors have requested a couple more days to address some additional things that have arose in the process.

Please double check the mindbody calendar so that you know where you are supposed to be.

Thank you to all of our Flux members for your ongoing patience with the renovation process!

Flux going "old school" Friday, Oct. 4th to Wednesday, Oct. 9th for renovations

Yes, that's right ... all Flux classes will be held at our 2251 McTavish Gym from  Friday, Oct. 4th to Wednesday, Oct. 9th as we renovate our 13th Ave location.

Please check the mindbody as some classes have been moved around during these few days!

Also, please park your vehicles on 14th Ave or 15th Ave and walk up the street or the alley to the gym. Please DO NOT park on McTavish!

For those who haven't been there to the McTavish gym yet, it's fully loaded with all the amenities (shower, change area, etc.), a beautiful and scenic sitting area, and lots of fresh air! For those who have been with us since the beginning, a little nostalgia, here's a little "old school" feeling just for you!

Thanks for all your patience as we make Flux even better for all of our athletes!
