Hope everyone enjoyed their respective T-Giving festivities, where-ever you were and whom-ever you were with. It might seem middle-school-essayish, but what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Hopefully, somewhere among the myriad answers, fitness can be found. No, I’m not talking about the type of fitness that allows you to rip of 100 DUs, or Deadlift 200 or 300lbs, or even complete Fight Gone Bad. I’m talking about the type of fitness that allows you to walk to the grocery store without getting winded, or being able to walk to the grocery store at all.
Yes, we all make choices, and we’re pretty thankful each and every day that all of you made the choice to come be a part of the CFDC community. Sometimes our fitness, our actual physical health, is in within our control, and can be improved by making simple choices. Sometimes, though, it’s not within our control, for reasons such as genetics, occupational hazards, unforeseen accidents, etc. So, as we close down the holiday, remind yourselves how lucky you are, not only to have made a great choice as it regards your personal health, but how luck you all are that you’re physically capable of following through on that choice.
AND, as a small celebration of these capabilities and choices, CFDC and CFDupont came together for a little T-Giving throw-down on Thursday morning. You know, just to make sure we all earned our feasts.
For this iteration, we chose DT as our hero WOD & Angie as our Girl WOD. It was designed as a partner/team workout, with everyone assigned to teams of 2 or 3 people.
To complete, each member must complete one round of DT at a time: so P1 does one round of 12-9-6, then P2 does one round (then P3 if applicable), before P1 starts on the second round, etc., etc. until each member of the team has done all 5 rounds. Rx’d weight for men was 155lbs, with ladies at 105lbs.
Once each member is done with DT, the entire team heads out for a 1 mile run.
Once all members of the team are back from the run, start on Angie, where the team must complete 100 total pull-ups, 100 total push-ups, 100 Sit-Ups and 100 Squats. Totals is 100 reps of each exercise(not 100 per member), and all 100 reps must be completed before moving on to the next exercise (i.e., exercises must be completed in order). Teams can divide the reps among members as they see fit, but only one team member can be working at a time. Teams of three have the option to scale up to 150 reps of each exercise.
A good way to start the day. For more photos, click on the link to the CFDC Picasa web album below.

Remember, we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming on Sunday, but until then, rest up, enjoy some left-overs, and post thoughts on the workout, as well as what you’re generally thankful for this T-Giving.
