What it isn’t

With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.

Tomorrow, Diso will elaborate on the aims and purpose of our IWC 8 week challenge.  Today, I’m going to talk about what it’s not.  Nutrition is the foundation of our development pyramid, and only 2 ways of eating have survived critical evaluation in the CrossFit world: the Paleolithic ‘Paleo’ Diet and the Zone diet.  The former was prescribed to avoid metabolic derangement, the latter to optimize performance.  Yet we avoided calling it a ‘Paleo Challenge’ or a ‘Zone Challenge’ on purpose.  It’s not a Paleo Challenge because when our first one spontaneously began at the old gym last year, people were eating 8 apples a day (as in, nothing else, eight apples for the entire day) or entire loaves of coconut banana bread and thought it was okay.  We avoid calling it a Zone Challenge because you could easily Zone beef jerky, doritos, and peanuts (and it will still work!) but that’s not our idea either.  The day may come where those criteria may be fine for the challenge at hand, and we’ll gladly call a spade a spade.  But for this one, the priority is . . . well, that’d be Diso’s cue.  Till next time!


Pull ups!
