I'll do my best to keep everyone updated about Regionals all weekend.
For those of you who plan on attending on Friday, here is the heat schedule:
Chyna will be competing in Heat #3 for both workouts. The seating will change all weekend. Hopefully Chyna will be in Heat #4 on Saturday and Sunday.
My name is Tommy. I've been following your program for about eight months now, and it has been absolutely amazing! I've been crossfitting for about a year and a half and started by using crossfit.com's program. It was great, but I lost a lot of strength from it. Your program didn't just help with my conditioning. It definitely helped my strength get back up.
For those of you planning to make it up to Santa Rosa for Regionals, I will be setting up a One World Base Camp on Thursday. Look for the old One World banner hanging on an easy-up in the area on the map marked "TENT CITY". Bring your own chairs. If someone wants to coordinate food, that would be great. It's going to be an awesome weekend.
Saturday July 6th 2013. CrossFit CSA will be holding our 1st Competition in our brand new facility… The Combat Fitness Challenge i.e., “CFC Championships 1″.
This will be a Partner “Tag Team” Event (1 Man/1 Women per team) like no other. This Competition will blend CrossFit Movements, Strongman Movements, Power Lifting Movements, Combat Sports Movements combined for one Bad A** Competition.
All Teams Will be Guarenteed Three (3) WODS and One (1) Floater WOD. Top 8 Teams in the RX and Scaled Diviisons will Advance to the Finals. Scoring will be classic simple CrossFit Scoring 1st Place = 1 Point, 2nd = 2, etc…The team with the lowest point total after all the WODS (including the Finals) Wins.
Podium Teams will get awesome swag bags from our Sponsors; Muscle Pharm, Xyience, Revgear, and many more to be announced…Winning Teams in each Division will take home Custom “CFC” Championship Belts and lay claim to to the Title”Baddest Team in the West”…Stay Tuned to this page for Announcements, WOD Information, Standards, etc…more information to follow.
There will be three Divisions; RX, Scaled and CSA Members…so no one feels like CSA has a “home gym” advantage (CSA Members will have their own division).
CSA has partnered with some awesome coompanies for this competition; WOD Rocket will be handeling the Registrations and Live Real Time Scoring during the event. Diablo Fitness Engineering will be supplying speciality equipment for this one of a kind competition as well.
Be advised, VERY Limited Spots will be Available only 15 RX Teams, 15 Scaled Teams, 5 CSA RX Teams and 5 CSA Scaled Teams… this event will sell out!
Also, We will also be hosting an After Party…our Annual Open House/ July 4th/ UFC 162 Party that night and all Teams will be able to attend with no cover charge. Most of you know…there aint no party like a CSA Party…cause a CSA Party DONT STOP!!!!
You better get on this quick if you want to put a team in the competition.......

"Hi Rocklin Crossfitters! I wanted to share with you my ProAnox Biogenesis experience. Ugghh. Already I sound like a commercial. Unavoidable no matter how hard I try, but here it goes. I tried ProAnox for 2 reasons. 1) was so that I could tell Todd (whose been trying to sell ProAnox to me since the first day I started) that it didn't do much for me. That the cost way outweighed the benefits, and sorry, but at least I tried it. And 2) I couldn't believe that Jennie McKernan was doing a team workout with the honey badgers a day after she'd just competed at the Elk Grove Grinder. I asked her how that was possible and she simply said, "ProAnox".
I've been taking it for about three weeks now, and much to my surprise, it has done wonders for my recovery. I did two competitions two weekends in a row, and I was still able to workout the very next day. Usually, after a comp I can barely walk the next day let alone workout! I can honestly say, since I've been taking ProAnox I recover faster, feel better, therefore Im able to get more work done. So, Todd, now comes the part where I have to say something that I never thought I'd ever say in a million years.......YOU WERE RIGHT.......it works. And thank you (and Jennie) for convincing me to try it:)"
Chyna Cho- 3rd Place finish @ 2012 Summer Crush in Miami.
Hoping some of you can make up to the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa on May 24-26. Chyna is competing in the 2013 CrossFit Games NorCal Regional Qualifier. It sucks because the venue is farther away than the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds, but if you make the trip up for even one day, you will see some awesome athletes doing some amazing things!
Chyna tied for third in 2011. She placed 4th in 2012. This year, she is stronger and better conditioned than she has been in any of the last three Games seasons. Let's all cheer on Chyna Cho back to the Games in 2013.
Go get it girl!
All the information for the NorCal Regional event can be found here:
This looks like a fantastic event for all you One Worlders to get involved in. You folks that like to run can crush it. The rest of you can just cruise. The NHUSD definitley needs your help. Wear your One World shirt! I have already done my part by signing up for the 400m. I plan on whooping ass on some kindergarden kids. TOTAL ONE WORLD DOMINATION!!! See you all there.
A few of you have noticed the awesome strength results my brother and Bianca have achieved under my guidance. Enough of you have inquired that I now want to offer something in a similar vein, if it fits with what you're looking for.
What you will get out of this program:
Individually tailored nutrition programs focused on supporting your activity, whether it's fat loss, muscle gain, or a mixture of both. Yes this includes Crossfit :)
Individually tailored strength programs that will get you stronger.
Two 1.5 hour sessions a week, on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30-8pm (we can change this as necessary) to get my feedback on your lifts and ask me any questions related to your progress or programming/nutrition/etc.
Unlimited email or facebook contact with me to address questions or concerns.
A solid framework that will allow you to manage your own training cycles and diet in the future. I won't make you dependent on me - the point is to teach you how to catch the fish :)
This program is for you:
1. If you've been crossfitting for more than a year and feel that your lifts are stagnating or you can't quite figure out how to progress on your own.
If your lifts are going up but you're not getting leaner or can't figure out how to maintain your strength while leaning out.
If you want to know how to program nutrition and training cycles on your own while getting my expert coaching feedback.
This program is NOT for you:
If you've been crossfitting for less than a year.
If you're still getting newbie gains (ask Freddy if you don't know what this means).
If you're not going to follow the program to the letter.
I'm looking to start this on June 4th, and it will last 12 weeks through to August 6th. The program cost will be $500, or about $40/week, payable up front. There will be a 30 day money-back guarantee, no questions asked. Payable to me through check in person (not preferred) or Paypal (preferred). This program is limited to 5 participants per 12 week cycle.
Email me at email@example.com if you are interested.
Let's get your name on that One World Strength board!"
The width of the training floor at One World is 28'. To do the above listed shuttles, perform the movement across the floor, and then jog back to the starting line. Post score as total shuttles completed.
As much as I love being co-owner of One World and coaching all you awesome One Worlders, I have to admit I love being a police officer even more. It's been an awesome 14 year ride.
Every single day, officers are patrolling the streets you live. They all live with the reality that the day they show up at work could be their last day on this earth. 5/15/2013 is National Peace Officers Memorial Day. So far this year, 41 peace officers nationwide have been killed in the line of duty (21% increase over last year). 16 deaths were caused by gunfire. 15 deaths were auto related. If you see a cop tomorrow working the street, thank them for what they do. It means a lot to them when they hear it.
To all my brothers and sisters out there: STAY SAFE!
The challenge was made. Muscles were flexed. Shit was talked. The challenge was accepted. The battle of the biceps was on!!! Chris versus Cesar. Who was the winner? Post your guess to comments (no posting if you were there and know who won). I'll try and get my hands on the video.....
The picnic area for the One World Members Appreciation BBQ was reserved today. The date is June 29th! Mark it on your calendars, and make sure you have the day off from work. It's going to be EPIC! More details to follow later this week.
The new pulling blocks are finally done! They got to see their first action on Saturday and worked PERFECTLY! The pulling blocks are adjustable to 5 different heights. I also put wheels on one side making them super easy to move around even when all five levels are stacked.
There is no better way to learn hitting full extension in your snatch or clean than training with the pulling blocks. If you want to see a demo, hit up one of the regular weightlifters on how to use them.
I find doing pistols in weightlifting shoes to be much easier than my regular workout shoes. If you can't do a pistol or an assited pistol, do 20 air squats instead. If it is a large group, mix up the order if necessary so everyone isn't on the row at the same time
