Are You Ready for a Zombie Attack?

I mean let's be honest, that is why we all train. It has nothing to do with wanting to be the healthiest versions of our selves, looking good in a bathing suit or keeping up with our kids. We work our butts off to prepare for the battle of a lifetime: Humans VS Zombies.

We have heard whisperings of Walking Dead taking over small towns in remote areas of Antarctica. News reports claim that Zombies carry powerful bacteria transferred to the living when a bitten. This bacteria kills its host within moments. Should the Zombie be hungry, well, it is done deal for the victim. The unlucky who don't get devoured will themselves become Zombies.

Beware beloved CFG community, reports estimate these Zombies will make their way to Florida as early as October 30th. We have little time to get strong and ready for their attack. Hopefully before then, the Department of Defense and scientists will have a plan to protect us. If not, we'll be ready.

Stay safe!


Emily O'Hearn has been putting in work!  I want her on my side when the Zombies come!

Why You Should Want More Mobility! (Part 1)

I often hear member requests for more strength on power lifts, new PR's on the beloved Olympic lifts, and even simply to feel more comfortable with barbell movements like squat, deadlift, and press. I love these requests because each one is meaningful to the athletes that set their eye's on them.

With many athletes, functional training is new and their experience is within the last 1-3 years. Although, mobility benefits can be gained from regularly performing the lifts we want to improve, the frequency and practice must be regularly occurring to make impressive gains. So, most athletes will find themselves needing to prioritize their training time to include the mobility drills that will personally improve their performance and lifestyle goals.

So, why should you want more mobility?

  1. By performing regular mobility work you can improve the range of motion needed to complete a successful exercise/lift with good technique (common areas include shoulders, hips, knees, ankles).
  2. With a healthy joint range of motion, better positioning can be gained which can create more force needed to generate power and strength gains in your performance.

With the help of various practice drills like stretching, mobility, and sport specific exercises we can begin to increase your range of motion and positiong for better performance output.  It's important to regularly look for improvements and position changes to assess your progress as well as eveluate changes to your strength development.
