Stop Giving a **** and Go Shirtless!

I spent WAY too many years of my life worrying about what my body looked like and what other’s thought of me. I had enough. I was wasting too much time and energy focusing on others. In the past I found myself constantly saying: “When I lose weight…” “When I’m a size…” “When I lose...

Taking a Second Job Just to CrossFit

We all know a CrossFit membership isn’t the cheapest thing around. But is it worth it? Most CrossFitters will respond with a resounding “YES!” However, would you take on a second job just to pay for your membership? That is exactly what 20 year old Austin Rice did. Austin goes to school full-time, works at...

No Boots About It

Kirsten immediately felt defeated upon the release of 14.1. She thought double-unders would force her to submit a score of zero on the very first Open WOD. It’s not that Kirsten Able isn’t proficient in double-unders – because she is! However, less than 3 weeks before she had surgery on her foot to due to...

Mental Game – Your Body Hasn’t Given Up Yet

6 words uttered to me during an Open WOD last year changed my whole CrossFit mental game. During that hellish Fran workout also referred to as 13.5 I was dying…and I mean dying on the chest-to-bar pull-ups. I was panting, my hands were ripping and it was the longest 4 minutes of my life. I...

Slamming Bars, PRs and a Bearded Dummy Drinking Coffee

Jon North from Attitude Nation walked into CrossFit Embark on a Saturday morning. Admittedly a little late because he needed his coffee! I can’t completely blame the man… He was there to give a Weightlifting seminar and teach us the Catapult; a relatively controversial theory of lifting. If you aren’t too familiar …

There’s More to Life Than CrossFit

Routine is the enemy. You hear this a lot in CrossFit. So, why are so many CrossFitters stuck in the routine of only doing CF? I get it, you love CF and it has had such an impact on your life. You have seen more gains in body composition and performance than ever before. However,...

Are You Too Sick To WOD?

Its that time of year again…you have a cough, runny nose, and your head feels like its going to explode. Yep, you’re sick! Unfortunately, even if you eat all the right things, exercise, and take your supplements, you are still susceptible to getting sick. A number of things can compromise the immune system, including …

I Want To Do a Pull-Up!

The infamous pull-up…a movement that is at the top of many to-do lists (especially for the women)! So, how do you get your chin up over the bar? There are a couple schools of thought when it comes to training the pull-up. Some say you should gain the strength to do a strict pull-up before...

Can’t You Just Tell Me What To Eat?

I get questions similar to this all the time: “Just tell me how much protein, fat and carbs to eat and when…” Simple question, right? Don’t you think that if I, or anyone else for that matter, had the magic plan that worked for everyone – you would have heard about it by now?? Believe...

Why I’m a Paleo Drop-out and Carbs Are My Best Friend!

Paleo. This is what you hear all the time in CrossFit gyms and all over the Internet. It seems to be the diet that will not only solve all your physical and mental ailments, but will increase your performance. I’m not here to totally discount the Paleo diet by any means. Maybe it works for...

Strong Is The New Skinny – And That’s a GREAT Thing!

I’m not perfect and I’m by no means skinny – nor do I ever want to be. But strong – now that’s something I can get on board with! Over the past year my legs and butt have grown to the point where I no longer fit into my pants. This would send many women...

With the LuRong Paleo Challenge and the Whole Life Challenge in effect, it seems like it is Paleo season! Here is some really good info on Paleo carbs and some GREAT recipes too! Speaking about the LuRong Challenge...Did you know? Kill Cliff "Tasty" (the orange one) is NOT allowed on the Challenge! Kill Cliff "Free Fall" and Kill Cliff "Awesomeness" ARE BOTH ALLOWED in moderation...yay!!! They count for 2/3 of your daily sweet treat allowance. Can Le, MCF needs some "Free Fall" and "Awesomeness"...STAT...LOL! All we have is "Tasty" on hand!

"When something bad happens while the barbell is in your hand, I believe you have three choices: You can either let it define you, destroy you, or strengthen you. When you allow a mistake to define or destroy you, you are not giving yourself the opportunity to let the mistake strengthen you. I believe that you need to take ALL you learn during practice and use it to strengthen you. To make it right."

Remember if you didn't find a 1 Rep Max on Deadlift this past Monday, you have the option of doing so until the week ends instead of that day's strength workout. Here's Jared who, before he started his sets, stated that he was going to beat his previous max 315lbs and he did indeed. Here he is lifting 360lbs! Nice job on that massive PR Jared!
