What To Include In Your Training Journal

Q:  I’ve never recoreded my WODs before, what should I include in my training log?

A: There is no right or wrong way to do it! I suggest that you take some pre-workout notes and post-workout notes for at least 30 days, to see what you can learn about yourself. If you’ve never done it, keep it simple and stick to the basics.

1. Very Minimal:  the date, what you did, and (possibly) bullet points on how you felt.

2. Some More Info: the date, where you were, what you did, how your energy and mood were before the WOD, a couple of positive points from the workout, a couple of things you’d like to improve on from the workout.

3. Lots of Info: Some people just love information and prefer to take very detailed notes. Here’s a list of info you could add – time of training, what you did, results, rate of effort during training, highlight of training session, any muscle soreness or pain, nutrition (pre/post workout), quality of sleep the night before training, energy levels before and after training, level of stress, level of confidence, level of motivation, any negative thoughts.

I typically suggest something like the middle option, as it’s important to get used to tuning into how you feel before the workout, as well as after it. I like to help athletes assess their physical and mental condition, so that they have a better understanding that it’s all connected.

HellaLife Buddha No Fear Custom Wood iPhone 6 Case is Coming!

 

IMG_6320

New to the HellaLife collection coming in late April will be the addition of this custom cedar wood engraved iPhone 6 case. Since each piece of wood is different then one anther each one will be slightly different then the last.  On the back of the case engraved in real cedar wood is Buddha himself with one of our favorite quotes “the whole secret of existence is to have to have no fear”.  The phone slips easily in and out of the case and gives plenty of protection with style. You paid a lot of money for that iPhone 6, might as well protect it. Each case is made in the USA as we’ve partnered with Carved which makes some of the most amazing products out of wood.

New HellaLife Barbell Club “Kilo’s Only” Edition Unisex Baseball T-shirts

New for 2015 we’ve introduced our New HellaLife Barbell Club “Kilo’s Only” Edition Unisex Baseball Tees. We’ve created three different color options for all kinds of styles. The idea behind these t-shirts happened during one of our Olympic lifting sessions. With so many people entering the world of Olympic lifting for the first time and not understanding the conversion between kilos and pounds. We decided in our club we would only use kilos so we would be sure to keep it real! These are super soft and comfortable while remaining ultra light and breathable. The HellaLife Barbell Club is a place were hard work beats talent any day. We bleed, sweat and destroy together as one. Join the movement and start living your HellaLife today!

Cait Lucas New HellaLife Advocate Joins The Team

cait lucas hellalife advocat

cait lucas hellalife advocate3

Our newest member of the HellaLife Family Cait Lucas!

I’m 25 years old, athletic through high school and did a lot of running in college.

I’ve been a CrossFitter for roughly 2 years now at Shenandoah Performance – CrossFit Abrams Creek. I’m a morning lifter and full time employee by day although if I need to finish any accessory work or any extra training I go back in the evening.

I am a coach as well at our facility and really enjoy working with those new to CrossFit. Recently I’ve been added to the Outlaw Barbell team and I am their 58kg lifter. As I haven’t much experience I am competing more frequently to sort of gain the “game day” knowledge and shake off any inconsistencies. My end goal for this year is  to qualify for Nationals, and I’m not terribly far off.
My fiancé is my world and after him I have a sweet Goldendoodle you’ll see or hear about quite often. It’s a HellaLife I live but I wouldn’t change it for the world!

New HellaLife Advocate: Pro Muay Thai Fighter Jason Andrada

jason andrada hellalife advocate

 

We are HUGE fans of Muay Thai and we couldn’t be more happy to support our good friend Jason Andrada as he gets ready for his next fight on Lion Fight Promotions February 20th. If you know anything about Jason, he certainly lives one heck of a HELLALIFE!

Name: Jason Andrada

Nickname: Ridiculous
Style: Muay Thai
DOB: January 15, 1985
Sign: Capricorn
Amateur Record: 18win 7loss 1draw 1no contest
Professional Record: 6wins 1loss

Favorite  Quotes: “Do what you must and do it well” -my dad & “fight hard eat hard” -me
Professional Accomplishments: Muay Thai Authority 2013 Rookie of the year & 2013 knockout of the year

Amateur  Accomplishments: 2009 IFMA 125lb bronze medal, USMF 125lb title, WMC 125lb title, USMTA 130lb title, WCSC “Best of the Bay” 130lb title, INKOSI Cup 125lb title

Why did you start training: Technically  i started jumped into Muay Thai when i was a freshman in highschool. This only lasted a few months taking the youth class with Master Toddy. Fast forward several years later 2006 after watching Ben Garcia on MTV’s True Life and the then newly released Ong Bok, curiosity took over and brought me back to Master Toddy’s with the question i asked myself “do i have what it takes to be a fighter and can i be good at it?” The rest is history.

Most memorable moment so far: Competing for the US team in Thailand for the 2009 IFMA World Championship and bringing home a bronze medal.
