Understanding Intensity

The other day after a short burner met con I was talking with Aaron (pronounced A A Ron) about how effective some of the shorter workouts can be. We both agreed that you really do not need a ton of time to get in a very effective workout. If you understand the intent of the […]

Would you like some Yin with that Yang?

When you think of Yin and Yang you think of balance. Light/Dark, Cold/Hot, Quiet/Loud, these are some examples we can think of that together will create balance. We do our best to create balance in our everyday lives but I think we could all (including myself) use some improvement in this area.

Quadricep Recovery and 18.5 Video…..Almost!

In CrossFit we tend to use the squat fairly frequently, in a variety of forms. Whether it’s the air squat, back or front squat, squat clean or squat snatch, or wallballs, we see the squat show up a lot in CrossFit! This is with good reason, because it is one of the pillars of any […]

Let it go

In the sport of fitness, there is a myriad of exercises and skills to work on and improve. However, trying to increase your 1RM back squat by 30 lbs, while also shaving 30 seconds off your mile time, might be a tough feat.

Training Through Injuries

If I had a dollar for how many times I have been told or have read that CrossFit is dangerous, I would be free of all my student loans. The truth of the matter is any physical activity we engage in carries an inherent risk, you just have to make as much effort as possible to […]

Sprinkle in the Volume

Over the past couple of months something that I think has been a great addition to the gym is the Sweaty Swag Board (Thanks Nabil!). Every time I look at it there is something new added. Whether its extra credit burpees, a PR, or someone writing a personal goal, that thing is filled by the end […]

Walk this Way….Actually, Lets Just Drive

As some of you have known I was gone in Europe for almost a month, but I am now back! You can ask me about the trip any time you see me and I will do my best to give you the abbreviated version, but all in all it was an amazing experience. I saw […]

Benchmark Workouts

If you’re a long time CrossFitter, chances are you already know what the benchmark workouts are. For some that are just starting out, this might be the first time you’ve heard that term. Greg Gassman released these 6 benchmark workouts in 2003. “In Benchmark Workouts, Coach Greg Glassman describes and examines six of Crossfit’s benchmark […]

Measuring Success

This post will relate to Nabil’s post on remembering your why and JB’s post he made a while back about you versus you. I wanted to make this post because when I am not blasting the latest EDM hits while I am driving around, I like to listen to a lot of podcasts. One of the […]
