Episode 10 - Benchmark workouts and the 'Why' behind the programming
On this episode, Lambert asks Madison some questions that he had and had heard throughout the week in the gym. The questions were finding out the "why" behind a lot of the workouts and sequencing of movements. This past week, we tested a bunch of benchmark workouts and explain the benefits of them. How testing can help you stay fired up in the gym and also how to manage the downs that can come up from testing. The programming seems random at times and some times the reasoning behind when stuff is programmed seems crazy and not understanding why. We cover what a "recovery" workout means and why would you do certain things before a WOD.

Episode 9 - adding volume and building an engine
On this episode, I sit down with Shayne Denihan, a member or Ute CrossFit and long time crossfitter. Lambert was out of town, so Shayne agreed to have a chat about things beyond the workout! We talk about adding in volume to training and how to make sure you don't over train or under recover. The conversation goes everywhere but the overall arching theme is how to get better at exercising fast! We had a little hiccup with the memory card getting full, but the camera picked up the audio. It's a short part of the video, but enjoy!

Episode 8 - A few Diet Myths, Lamberts weight loss Journey, and calories in vs. calories out.
On this episode of Beyond the Metcon, We talked about setting goals in regards to diet and weight loss that are realistic and how to understand that expectations and reality are two different things. We get a little vulnerable with talking about Lambert's weight loss journey, how he thought he would feel once he made it to a certain weight, and what he's doing to stay positive while realigning his goals. We also talk a little about calories in and calories out. We cover what calories burned looks like in different forms of exercise and how to use them properly to meet your goals.

On this episode, Lambert and I are recording in the Ute CrossFit gym. We talk about a few myths that we have heard throughout the years of our experience either as crossfitters or as a coach. We wanted to break down some of those and give some clarity to what's really going on in a CrossFit gym and try to share some of the positives that happen in and out of the gym.

After the open is over we get excited about the test that we just put ourselves through and then we work on a few weaknesses, but keeping that going all year is tough so we talk about how to keep yourself excited and working on something even on those days you don't feel like working out.

Beyond the Metcon - Episode 5
On episode 5 of Beyond the Metcon, Lambert and I wanted you all to get to know us a little more in our CrossFit journey. We have had our ups and downs and wanted you all to hear the stories that we found funny after they were done. We talk about moments that we thought were funny or awesome in workouts, competitions, and even while coaching class. We all have those moments that we remember and will stay with us forever, such as PR's or moments of failure, but at the end of the day both are equally important. Let us know what moments have stuck with you over the years and even those moments that helped shape you into something better than the day before.

Beyond the Metcon - Episode 3
On this week's episode, we talk about what you need for CrossFit, what is nice to have, and what cool but not really needed. As the episode progresses, we go from what we feel is really important for all crossfitters to have with them everyday/week to something you may use only once a year. Lambert and Madison, both have what they like to have with them that isn't the same as the others. Here are a few links to a few products we talked about. When in doubt, give it a google. Jump Ropes: a few from Amazon, Rogue, and the most expensive we talk about 1. https://www.amazon.com/Rogue-Fitness-Speed-Rope-Adjustable/dp/B01CYITKS8/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=Speed+Rope+Crossfit&qid=1615178136&sr=8-9 2. https://www.amazon.com/WOD-Nation-Speed-Jump-Rope/dp/B00K1VOXYW/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Speed+Rope+Crossfit&qid=1615178136&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyMDZIWElRR05HVEREJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzY3MzYzMzQ5WERRNlg1M1FYVyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDUwMzUwMUY4OFJWU04zWjk3WCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= 3. https://www.amazon.com/RxFIT-Aluminum-Handled-Crossfit-Silver/dp/B07PF8HV6L/ref=sr_1_12?dchild=1&keywords=Speed+Rope+Crossfit&qid=1615178136&sr=8-12 Rogue Site 1. https://www.roguefitness.com/sr-1s-short-handle-bearing-speed-rope-color-series 2. https://www.roguefitness.com/froning-sr-1-speed-rope RPM https://rpmtraining.com/collections/ropes Grips Bear Complex - https://www.bearkomplex.com/products/bear-komplex-carbon-no-hole-speed-grips?currency=USD&variant=32147059638344&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_campaign=Google%20Shopping&gclid=CjwKCAiAkJKCBhAyEiwAKQBCkuZEdHl0IhJs8_WCyMd_UKH5h4clTUKoCj7PWzw2e1JWnfM2bu_RLRoCPLAQAvD_BwE Wodies - https://jerkfit.com/products/wodies-workout-glovespair?variant=31061921431630 Victory Grips - https://victorygrips.com/ Knee Sleeves Reband - https://www.roguefitness.com/rehband-rx-knee-sleeve-5mm-black Get Workt - https://getworkt.com/collections/all Belts Valeo - https://www.amazon.com/Valeo-Industrial-Performance-Profile-Support/dp/B001QKCHVS/ref=asc_df_B001QKCHVS/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167124601101&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13490727448507645341&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9029744&hvtargid=pla-314574810709&psc=1 2pood - https://2pood.com/collections/metcon-belts?gclid=CjwKCAiAkJKCBhAyEiwAKQBCkumYr-IB1irkRFItvJx1CkXdj82xRDtJdDLqI7VtD12ZrsubjAhS7RoC1HkQAvD_BwE
