QUARANTEAM: Week 4

Your Weekly Dose of SLEVEN

European Championships

After the success of the Home Alone Open, where we had over 40 Sleveners sign-up, we've been keeping tabs on competitions and initiatives to keep your competitive juices flowing and we've found just the one for you!

The European Championships is offering a FREE online competition which we will be integrating into our Bodyweight and Bells programming for TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN on Wednesdays. WODs will be released on Mondays for a total of three weeks and three workouts. You don't need any kit if you want to participate in the Bodyweight workouts and all you need for Bells is a 22.5/15 kg dumbbell and a skipping rope!

To sign-up for the competition, all you have to do is click on the below button. Coach Emma will be running a Zoom class on Wednesdays at 18:30 for those wanting a bit of support getting into that "dark place". The session will include a warm-up, strategies and a demonstration of movement standards.

QUARANTEAM Round-Up

Week 5 of QUARANTEAM starts today and with the weather taking a sharp turn for the worse, the running task ended just in time! We have a new weekly task - we're giving something up!

Much has been written in the media about the numbers of people drinking more alcohol and overindulging on unhealthy snacks and fizzy drinks. Or perhaps you've found yourself drinking huge amounts of coffee! Let’s use the next week to take a break and to try and establish new habits for the remainder of the lockdown period. 

Not only did Niall Sheehy and Andy Ward continue their QUARANTEAM kitchen war but they are now both sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard! This week, they had a crack at our black bean breakfast tortilla recipe. We're delighted with their involvement including their reposts on Instagram. Please make sure you tag us in anything QUARANTEAM related, it's a great way to keep everyone in touch and see what our Sleven family is up to! 

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 Cherry Bakewell! Cherries are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds which may help relieve exercise-induced muscle pain, damage, and inflammation. Coupled with almonds, which contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, magnesium and vitamin E, this is not only a classic flavour combination but a nutritional powerhouse!

After the success of Captain Tom last week, we thought we'd treat you to a Hero WOD every Sunday! This week we're taking on "Loredo", 

U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Edwardo Loredo, 34, of Houston, Texas, assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, was killed on June 24, 2010 in Jelewar, Afghanistan, when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. He is survived by his wife, First Sergeant Jennifer Loredo; his daughter, Laura Isabelle; his stepdaughter, Alexis; and his son, Eduardo Enrique.

There are enough movements (and low enough volume per set) in “Loredo” to avoid any major muscle fatigue. Pick a strong pace from the beginning, and go faster as the rounds progress. Round 6 should be a sprint!

Coach Jamie will be hosting a Zoom session at 11:00 with an appropriate warm-up, scaling options and strategies.

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!
