QUARANTEAM: Week 3

Your Weekly Dose of SLEVEN

QUARANTEAM Round-Up

Week 4 of QUARANTEAM starts today! Our third weekly task, to learn something has come to an end. The goal of our weekly task is to change habits and get you doing something you wouldn't normally do day-to-day.  Many of us have a love-hate relationship with running, but there has never been a better time to run: the weather is ideal and, with gyms closed, it’s a great way to get some exercise done. Our new weekly task is to run for 60 minutes over the course of the week. Break this up however you wish: 3 or 4 shorter runs or a couple of longer efforts.

Make sure you ready your daily QUARANTEAM email for tips on how to get the best out of this task, especially if you're new to running!

Niall Sheehy and Andy Ward continued their QUARANTEAM kitchen war. This week, they had a crack at our banana cashew muffin recipe. Considering Andy is a chef by trade, we feel like he has a slight advantage over poor old Niall who has never baked in his life! With social distancing, we're not able to taste test but we'll let you make your own decision!

Last week's QUARANTEAM leader, Fokion Sanoudos, has consolidated his position and even extended it! A great way to pip him to that top spot is to do well in our weekly quiz on Friday nights. This week we're adding a baby picture round. Make sure you send us a baby picture to be included in the quiz and let's see how well we know each other!

TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN

Although we are all missing Sleven, we hope you're all following TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN to keep up your daily dose of training. We publish the bodyweight programme complete with videos of the movements on Instagram each evening. If you check out our Instagram stories, I also post an easy to follow warm up to get you prepped for the session.

If you are lucky enough to own some kit - namely some dumbbells and/or a kettlebell, we also have a version of the programme that incorporates use of this kit called BELLS. BOTH versions of TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN are posted on Wodify each night at 20:00 for the following day, along with tips for the workout and points of performance for each of the movements.

Sometimes, it is not as simple as swapping out bands for a dumbbell and although the workout will be similar, some changes to rep schemes and movements are made to accommodate use of this kit whilst maintaining the integrity of the workout. So if you are using kit, make sure you check Wodify for how best to incorporate it into your training and don't just swap a band for a heavy kettlebell!

If you are following TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN, we'd love to hear from you, so please email us your feedback to let us know how you are getting on.

Love,
Coach Loz

Smoothie Saturday is quickly becoming part of many Sleveners' weekly routine! Not only do you get to try out a new recipe but chat with nutritionist Tom on the hot topics of the week. Come with questions or just have a listen and we bet you'll leave the chat feeling a bit more connected to your fellow Sleveners and hopefully having learned something too.

This week's recipe is Apple Pecan! Pecan nuts are a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals such as manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. Coupled with the fibre rich apples and protein this is a great mid afternoon smoothie.

Your Weekly Nutrition Roundup

Just a reminder that partner WOD Saturday is now EARLIER at 10:00. This gives you the opportunity to get your WOD in before the Cook Along with Tom. Also, there is no need to partner up with someone beforehand, we will do that for you! We’re going Asian this week with a simple, yet delicious stir-fry! Jamie’s Quick Steak Stir Fry is high in protein and low in carbs so if you’re following up your training session with this meal we recommend you add a carb source such as rice or noodles. If you’re not into red meat, you can always sub it out with chicken or if you’re a veggie, tofu!

QUARANTEAM: Week 7

We’re still on course for a July reopening and we’ve been incredibly busy behind the scenes making preparations for your return. We can assure you that we will be the cleanest gym in London! While we wait for direction from the government, we have some solid plans in place and if you’re feeling uneasy about Sleven’s reopening, we would like to reassure you that everything will be OK. While the future is uncertain, we’re confident we can provide you with a fantastic training experience.

Your Weekly Nutrition Roundup

For this week’s Cook Along with Tom, we’ve chosen a brunch favourite: smoky mushroom frittata! If you’re following a low carb diet or looking to up your protein intake, this simple recipe is for you! To help you fit your macros, you can easily serve with toast or crusty bread to up the carb content. If you need to cut down the fat in the recipe, you can make some easy substitions: turkey bacon, egg whites and light cheese.

QUARANTEAM: Week 6

Let’s be honest here, lockdown is beginning to drag! We’ve not only noticed this ourselves, personally, but in the enthusiasm and engagement of the membership and it’s completely expected. The days seem to merge together, any novelty has worn off and we’re all craving social interaction, outdoor activities and especially, getting back to the gym! We’ve reached out to every member personally and we’re seeing a common trend: either work has become exponentially busier, as the business you’re in switches online, or you have nothing to do! We worry mostly about those of you with nothing to do so please do reach out to us if you are feeling hopeless,lonely or fancy a chat. We are here to help!

QUARANTEAM: Week 5

Yesterday, we received a payout for CrossFit HQs “Support Your Local Box” competition and we’d like to send out a massive heartfelt thank you! Not only was it a fun weekly competition with so many of you participating, many of you found some spare funds at a tough economic time which shows the strength of our community! Needless to say, we can’t wait to be back and we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes to make your return and experience at Sleven the best it can possibly be!
