Injury to RX: Lessons Learned on My Journey to Recovery

By Beth O’Connor In 2008 I had a great idea. I was going to train for and complete my first sprint triathlon! Woohoo! I was excited! I had four solid months to prepare for it, and I was already pretty decent at each of the three elements. My shining outlook, however, soon became overcast when...

How to prevent back pain while working out

by JESSICA ROBERT Obesity is the condition where the body weighs much beyond being simply overweight. The body mass index is close to 30 and above and one should immediately attempt to lose weight to combat problems of joint aches, shortness of breath and fatigue. Obese people are also at the risk of suffering heart...

Don’t Lose Sight of Your Goals

Anyone can do CrossFit but everyone is different. Unfortunately some participants and coaches can lose sight of this fact and forget that not everyone wants to do the exact same thing as everyone else. Most people join CrossFit for their own personal reasons. They have goals that they want to obtain it could be weight...

Are You RX’ing Life?

Why Benchmark WODs Aren’t Really Benchmarks.

One of the things that really surprised me when I began CrossFit, and perhaps one of the main points of criticism from mainstream fitness, is CrossFit’s use of “benchmark,” “prescribed,” or “rx’d” workouts, without respect to individual differences like height, weight, body type, current fitness levels etc …

Having a Balanced Diet Can Boost Your Fertility

There are plenty of men and women today who suffer from infertility and ultimately have to live with the notion of never having a child of their own. Many women choose to buy menopur which is an ovarian stimulant, meant to promote the healthy function of the ovaries and the release of eggs during ovulation....

What sups bro?

Every time a new athlete joins the box I get the same question. What sups bro? What supplements should I take? What supplements do you take? Which do you recommend and on and on and on. Seeing that HQ only advocates fish oil, where do we as coaches and peers begin inserting our own ideas?...

Slow Down: Or, “So, I Just Failed That Deadlift…”

So, it’s the 24th of January and I’ve been CrossFitting since the beginning of September. I’m down almost twenty five pounds, I’m setting PR’s pretty evenly every two weeks, and I have to be honest, I’ve never been so addicted to anything. And I used to smoke. At 21, I feel fortunate …

When to Bring Your Child to the Box

Kids love to imitate mommy and daddy, especially when they see how much fun their parents are having at their box.

Did anyone catch the "Grid"? National Pro Grid League or NPGL? The first ever match was today. It's head-to-head, team workouts, where you strategically sub in Athletes (depending on their strengths) throughout the WOD to complete a chipper before the other team. It was interesting! Big CrossFit names on each team...go to www.npgl.com and check it out. Tell us what you think! The LA Reign home field is the Cal State LB pyramid...maybe we'll all go check it out! CFBH 8.20 WOD a: For Time 3 rounds: 30 KB swings (53/35) 30 Box jumps (24/20) WOD b For Time 3 rounds: 400m run 25 Wall Balls (30/25)(20/18) 10 Pull Ups
