You CAN Take It With You: 5 Tips and Tricks to Tackle Travel

Summer has almost arrived in the USA! The prospect of warmer, sunlit days breaths new life into the travel and tourist industry. If you aren’t one of those people who has attempted to lose weight or tone up for swimsuit season, you’re probably know someone who is doing just that right now. While having time …

The Wrongfully Hated Butterfly Pull-up

Because you’re reading this blog, I’m making the bold assumption that you are a Crossfit enthusiast, or at least have a partial appreciation for what Crossfit is (whether you love it or hate it) and its many layers of modern fitness. If you’re at all like me, you’re also probably used to its criticism and […]

5 Muscles to Stretch, Part II. Your Sleeping Position Could be to Blame

This is more of a public service announcement than a CrossFit article, I guess.  In my last article, 5 Muscles to Stretch to Improve Your Lifts, I discussed how stretching the calves, quads, hip flexors, hamstrings, and pecs can improve lifts such as overhead squat, clean, snatch and deadlift.  This article it simply to …

Developing Winning Concentration for Peak Athletic Performance

This is Part 9 in the series on Mental Strength and High Intensity Athletic Performance. In the previous post, we talked about the trouble slumps and obstacles can have when we are trying to achieve our peak athletic performance. In today’s post, we are going to look at the mental strength tips that can help […]

How to get Awesome at CrossFit

My name is Tommy Caldwell and I’m the owner of Hybrid Fitness. Here at Hybrid we run one of the top CrossFit programs in the country, and for the last 2 years I have participated in the CrossFit Open even though I am not a CrossFitter. We have a fairly large, enthusiastic community here to […]

Proper Hand Care in a Pull up, Barbell & Hard-core Workout World

It’s painful to tear your hands, and it’s equally annoying to hear you whine about it. These tools will prevent you from ripping, entering a world of pain, and thus whining. To help give your hands some respect, here is what you need in your soft-hand arsenol. It’s my recommendation that you use these tools …

5 Muscles to Stretch to Help Your Lifts

We all work on strength, speed, power, and endurance to improve our CrossFit abilities.  We hit new PR’s on our lifts, WOD’s seem to be a little easier, and we Rx more often.  It’s so much fun! But are we doing all that we can to improve our abilities?  To be truly well rounded, shouldn’t we …

“The Froning Factor.”

Must be a tough place to be in, if you are one of the male athletes that want to dethrone good ´ole Rich from the top of the podium. Why!? Well, Rich Froning has been very much open, about the fact that he wants to go team after the upcoming CrossFit Games. This doesn’t sound […]

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 […]

Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad CrossFit?

For some reason, whenever a fitness fad becomes super-successful, a lot of people begin to worry about it. The Internet buzzes with “why it’s bad” articles, and people “tsk, tsk” those who cheer it on. That seems to be exactly what’s happened with CrossFit, and it might be why it’s so doggone difficult to get …

Namesake WODs: Honored Through Sweat

Last week, my trainer assigned me a WOD called “Dork”. At first I thought he was making fun of my goofy Disney-fandom, or my love of all things sci-fi, but he quickly explained that it had nothing to do with my hobbies outside the gym floor. It was actually named after a hero. “Dork” is […]

Is it time to pay judges?

Is it time to pay judges? CrossFit and CrossFit Competition is big business. There is a lot of money within the sport and the stakes are becoming a lot bigger. When money is involved people need someone to blame when they don’t make the cut. This, in CrossFit, is the judges. Judges are always under […]

Overcoming Slumps and Obstacles

This is our 8th part in the Mental Strength and High Intensity Athletic Performance series. Both slumps and your peak performance have one thing in common and that’s concentration. But how can that be? Let’s take a moment to explore that. When you’re in a slump or facing a road block, you are: • Spending […]

Are You Too Sick for the Box?

While most CrossFitters like to think of themselves as fairly durable and, in some cases, nearly invincible, they do sometimes encounter a problem that plagues every person who loves to work out: Illness. Once a sickness has befallen a CrossFit enthusiast, what is one to do? While it can be tempting to simply “ignore” …

A study by the University of Pennsylvania found that people with more diversity in their diets tend to get seven to eight hours of sleep. Less alcohol and fewer carbs, general signs of a healthier diet, were also more common in those who get a full night's sleep.

Wellness Challenge!! Woohoo guys! I have almost everyone's sheets and I've been going over them and glancing through your myfitnesspal diary's. What I love seeing is the progressive improvement either in reaching the goals and/or food choices. This is a challenge for all of us. One thing I have noticed that makes a huge difference. Is if you know what you are doing for dinner then you can plan the rest of your meals and snacks around what you still need to get. Pre-plan your day and it helps!! Keep up the hard work and keep an eye out for a post on the Wellness Challenge Standings to see how you are doing!!
