This Sunday: Wim Hof Method Fundamentals Workshop at CFSBK
Put yourself in the expert hands of a certified Wim Hof Method Instructor to learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method: Breathing Technique, Cold Exposure, and Commitment. Find out how you can utilize oxygen and cold exposure to optimize body & mind, and learn about the underlying physiology.
The intimate quality allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation. Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about— a WHM workshop offers something for everyone.
The program generally kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, and always includes a breathing session and an (optional) ice bath. At the end there is ample room for reflection, and the Instructor is there to answer questions throughout the workshop. (Wim Hof will NOT be at the workshop.)
Instructors have their own specializations, and there is some variation across the individual workshops. A detailed overview of the day is sent out upon registration.
If you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you finish your showers cold in the days leading up to the workshop. This may be overwhelming at first, but just try to relax, focus on your breath, and bring it into a controlled, steady rhythm.
Date, Time, and Pricing
Sunday, March 31st from 2:15pm to 6:15pm

This workshop is suitable for everyone, but does require a basic level of health. Out of precaution, we advise against participation during pregnancy, or if you are epileptic.

19.5 recap: 13:03!
I was one of the crazies who redid this. And I do not regret it!!! My goal was to get top 1000 worldwide. Unsure if that’s actually going to happen given I was sick the first week, but I’m STILL sitting in 941. I may drop 100 or so overnight. But MAYBE NOT! Fingers crossed 🙂 either way, had I been healthy week 1 I would have been able to hit my goal, guess that’s what the October open is for!
Anyway I was able to shave 1:59 off of my time after spending a full hour analyzing my splits and finding a good pacing strategy. I did this on Friday and felt sluggish and exhausted, could barely Kip (was just a super off day for no reason I guess). I really should have stopped early to save energy for a redo but I didn’t want to look like a quitter at Friday night lights. So I pushed through!
This time around. Stuck to 7/5/3s throughout on chest to bar. Only a single once on a random kip mess up and the. At end with a single and a double on last three reps! That was definitely because I forced rest and didn’t redline on thrusters.
So exciting! The pacing game is so fun when you figure it out. You can just turn off, run on autopilot knowing if you do what’s on paper you will do well. Takes a good bit of experience to understand yourself to do this accurately, but I was pumped about how close I was to reaching my pacing goal!
Thrusters: 11/11/11, 9/9/9, 7/7/7, 9/6, 9. Didn’t die this time. 10-15 seconds rest in between sets to slow down heart rate
Pullups: 7/6/5/5/5/3/2, 5/5/5/5/4/3, 5/5/5/3/3, 3/3/3/3/3, 3/3/1/2
I think all in all, despite my inability to turn off my competitive atttitude and going against my noble claim that I was only going to do them all once, I approached this open with the healthiest attitude yet. I had moments where I was beat up about a performance here and there, comparing myself to others, doubting my abilities, etc. but I would say A WHOLE lot less. I had a lot of fun this year, had a blast with Friday night lights, and am completely and totally still motivated to compete and be better by next year. Last year I was in pieces, and almost didn’t sign up for Murph because I didn’t feel like comparing myself to someone else. This year, I’m excited to deload a bit and take a mental break. But I absolutely cannot wait until the fall open.
Woooo!!! Thanks again Brett for putting on an awesome FNL for all of us! And the support staff who halped.
Last year I was in a bad mental place about Murph too, and I’m embarrassed to say that I did skip it because I thought my time would be embarrassingly slow if I did it Rx. So good on you for having done it anyway.

3rd – 30sec Ring Plank (feet elevated)
A1) C2 Bike 1000m
A2) Staggered Stance Deadlift 5 reps @ 3131 per leg

B2) Jefferson Curl @3131; 6-8 reps;

Then I couldn’t resist today’s wod of DUs and HPC… 4:06 Rx, with surprisingly good DUs and HPC all unbroken.
Ooooo so excited for Friday night classes.
Am emerging from some burnout fatigue and got my rear to class this AM with Lauren and Whit. Cleans felt strong; double unders not so much … some days I got ’em, other days they got me.
