My favorite thing about the Internet is that you get to go into the private world of real creeps without having to smell them-

2011:  CultFit a Statistical Retrospective

287 Posts: 33% being abusive towards X-Fit apes, 33% Claiming you are doing too much training and over thinking working-out, 33% Beating you over the head.

50,239 Unique Hits: Most used search term “Random Workout”…We pray it’s for people wanting to read here and yes that is a conceded statement.  If that many people wanted to do a Random Workout?  We are doomed as a society!

29 Le-Git emails from reformed peeps who have seen the light.

2012:  CultFit a Look Ahead

Accept the fact that working out and living a healthier life in any fashion is inherently good in our book.  Shake weight, pole dancing etc (although X-Fit Yoga is still flippantly idiotic).

Explore more holistic, earth friendly workout programs and how to integrate them into our fad social media driven society.

Strive to be even more pithy and dense in our posts.  Something all Random Fitness blog-o-sphere peeps should consider.

We are not perfect here at CultFit HQ, not even remotely close for that matter.  If falling down the stairs for time is your thing?  Cool.  Just know we are here to offer a glimpse, a perspective you may not see as you wait in traffic driving to workout.  Now where is that Ab Mat Uncle Mo gave us for Hanukkah?

So on that note…If you are bored today sitting in front of your worn down Google machine.  Give it a gentle slap and search away for: CrossFit torrents

We take no responsibility for what you may find!  The “Well, X-Fit costs too much” argument is invalid peeps.  It’s within your search results that you will find everything you’re willing to pay $$$ for each month.

So on another note…unless CrossFit or any variation et al does something patently stupid this year, we are finished stoning them to death.

The Plan-

If you have a special connection with this following article, it’s ok we understand.  We spent a whole year trying to explain to the masses that the marketing behind the product is actually better than the product itself.  Were willing to bet you could make a list of at least ten other health related products that fit the same parameters as coconut water.

The Workout-

From our “I was cool before the New Year was the New Year” archive here at CultFit HQ.

Walking Lunge for 10 minutes both forward and backward (be creative and mix it up)

Bridge Work for Ten minutes (use your Google machine to look some variations up)

Swimming for One Hour

Meditation for at least 45 minutes at the end of your day

Notes:  People are easily confused and misled while reading and comprehending words both orally and written.  We strive to keep things simple here, we really do.  Perspective and simplicity are keys to us living a better healthier life, ENJOY (the pic)!!!

Learning is not compulsory… neither is survival-

Hopefully everyone made it home in one piece after Halloween last night.  The individual below on the other hand…

The Plan-

It’s time to be completely honest with us here at CultFit HQ Random Fitness peeps.  How many of you just roll right through your given workout without giving any thought to what you are actually doing?  We thought so and it changes today.  Listen to your body the rest of the week…

The Workout-

Not for time…

20m Heavy Farmers Walk…Followed by:

20 Perfect Push Ups

3 Goblet Squat Holds

We prefer you do this first set barefoot for the following reason:  Actively spread your toes during each step and grip the floor beneath you.  If you feel you are a danger to your well-being and stand the chance of dropping the weights…Don’t.  Every movement we do is under control and planned with a purpose.  Heavy Farmers Walks give us the perfect opportunity to perform  single rep dead-lift right?

20m Heavy Farmers Walk…Followed by:

20 Perfect Push Ups

3 Goblet Squat Holds

Quick feet this time while still gripping the floor.  Big chest and chin up, paying more attention to your core stability.  Open No thumb), loose grip on the weight.

20m Heavy Farmers Walk…Followed by:

20 Perfect Push Ups

3 Goblet Squat Holds

Gently and importantly, under control lean forward and let gravity assist during this set.

Notes:  During the last set put all the pieces together and walk it out until your grip fails you.  ENJOY!!!

As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly-

Thank you for all the feedback, both positive and negative!  It really does help us here at CultFit HQ no matter what the naysayers opine.  Also, to all our athletes who competed this past weekend (you know who you are…) congratulations on the podium finishes!  Training to lead a healthy life and to produce measurable results…what a novel idea, huh?

The Plan-

Think of some movements this morning that you have been neglecting of late and why you have been putting them on the back burner.  If they are there for a reason i.e they make you hurt or aggravate an old injury, leave them there for good!  The idea today is craft a series of movements that augment your training goals in addition to the proven movements that have been working for you of late.

The Workout-

Pulled this one from our “Craft Brew Series” here at the CultFit archives…

Walk/Run-Run-Run/Walk…Tempo run peeps, find a good pace and stay in the groove for 30 minutes.

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Weighted Step Ups

Perfect Dips

Notes-Once you pick the weight up for the ‘step ups’ it stays up…Plant foot and push through, nice controlled movement.  ENJOY!!!
