Training Around your Injuries

If you exercise on a regular basis, with any degree of high intensity, than sooner or later injury will come. It doesn’t necessarily mean you weren’t training smart, or that you did anything foolhardy, but it comes with the territory. Anything from a nagging shoulder “twinge” to a pulled or torn muscle. Training …

I’m not building my body for you

I’m not sure at what point my perspective changed and I stopped giving a shit about what other people thought of my body. There were times in my past when a compliment or a negative comment about my body could make or break my day. Frankly, I could give two flying fucks anymore. I don’t...

What is Beautiful?

Ten years ago I was 15 lbs lighter and wore a size 0 or 1 jeans. I worked my tail off in the gym 6 days a week and I was never satisfied with how I looked. Today, I have two beautiful children, I weigh more than “the standards” say I should weigh, and I...

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...

From Plant-Based to Paleo

I was putting away groceries last night when I came upon my Tofu Press collecting dust in the kitchen cabinet above the sink. I received it as a gift last Christmas from my parents along with multiple vegetarian cookbooks and a subscription to Vegetarian Times Magazine. I feel guilty still having that subscription as a...

CrossFitters: How to Avoid Rhabdomyolysis

While it’s absolutely possible to get injured during any strenuous activity, the ultra-intense makeup of CrossFit can sometimes lead to athletes – especially first-timers – over-exerting themselves. While this isn’t unusual in and of itself, long-term exertion has been known to lead to physical issues, not the …

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...

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 …

Front Range CrossFit had a fantastic 2 days of Olympic Weightlifting down in Colorado Springs at the Rocky Mountain State Games this past weekend. Congratulations to all of our lifters. You worked so hard for this and lifted so well. We are so proud of you. Ryan Dritein made 5 of his 6 lifts, achieving a personal record (PR) in the snatch at 66kg, a PR in the C&J at 95kg, and a PR in the total at 161kg. Teralyn Carter went 6 for 6 (meaning she made all of her lifts) which is very impressive since she had PR's in all 3 categories as well. The snatch at 54kg, the C&J at 74kg, and the total at 128kg. Teralyn took Gold in the 63kg open division. Josh Guillen went 5 for 6 and PR'd all his lifts and total with a snatch of 80kg, C&J of 114, and total of 194. Dave Loudenslager also PR'd all of his lifts and total with a snatch of 75kg, C&J of 104, and total of 179. Amy Backel lifted next. And yes... She PR'd all of her lifts and total too! She snatched 76kg, C&J 96, and totaled 172. This was enough to give her a Gold metal in the 75kg Open division. Owen Shearer was our last lifter. Yes... He too went 6 for 6 and PR'd all of his lifts! Snatch 93kg, C&J 116kg, and total 209kg (no straps). In addition to the lifters above we had some of our old members come back and lift under our Club. Paula Schoettinger took 1st place in the 53kg open division, Martin Wolfe won 1st place in the 69kg open division, and Kalee Noe took 1st in the 69kg youth division.
