Why Sumo?

Why Sumo?

The deadlift is considered the ultimate test of overall body strength. It’s a combination of a push with the legs and a pull the upper body. It produces STRONG people, keeps you fit and enhances your flexibility.

Two popular deadlift variations are the conventional and the sumo. Conventional is what we do most often at CPM. It’s a great opportunity to lift some heavy $#*! and work on our derrieres🍑. So what about the sumo deadlift? What are the unique benefits of this besides that crazy looking sumo stance 😜.

The Art of Jumping Rope

The Art of Jumping Rope

It looks so easy. It’s just a jump rope. All they are doing is passing the rope twice for every jump. SO WHY CAN’T I DO IT!!

Jumping rope is a tremendous conditioning tool that has been used for years to improve endurance and coordination. I have witnessed some pretty amazing things from people lifting tremendous amounts of weight, running like the wind and completing pull-ups until their arms falls off, but as soon as they pick up a jump rope, it’s like they have two left feet.

For many people, jumping rope was something of the past. You might be one […] Read more

Run vs Row

Run vs Row

I got asked the other day,  “Why when running is in the workout people can substitute rowing but not vice versa?” Obviously this is not really true…ok sometimes I am a stickler but it’s usually because people are picking what they are better at.

Rowing is an invaluable tool for runners. When you learn how to do it right, it lights up weaknesses you didn’t know you had. It helps find power in muscles they hadn’t used before and can be a great replacement for running when injuries surface.

So which provides a better overall workout?

Both running and rowing provide a great […] Read more

What if Your Routine is the Enemy?

What if Your Routine is the Enemy?

Routine is only the enemy when you continue to NOT evolve. Your routines will lead you to your future (as the quote mentions above). The problem with routines is that everything works but only for so long. Life is continuing to move forward if you aren’t willing to change with the times you could end up being frustrated with your lack of results.

Sioux Falls had a great opportunity a few weeks ago to listen to a very unconventional yet very successful entrepreneur, Jesse Itzler, at a YPN event. Even though he has a different ways of achieving in […] Read more

CPM Approved “Back to School Snacks” …

It’s hard to believe, but school is in session virtually everywhere.

One could be making sure your kids have nutritious snacks during lunch, or during and after school day.
