I cried at CrossFit

I cried at CrossFit. It’s true, so what. I have been an active crossfitter for just under a year. Basic training a year ago, then I joined with a limited membership and a full on membership in May of 2013. So basically I have been progressively increasing WODs in quantity over a period of time....

Weight-Lifting Takes Guts

Success is terrifying. It’s a weird thing to say or write, but it’s true. Success is exposing. It’s standing on stage naked and facing the crowd. It’s allowing the world to feel the weight of who you are. It’s accepting that failure could come at any moment. I’ve spent most of life afraid of success...

Strength Movements to Improve Your Muscle-Up

Do you feel like performing a muscle-up is about as likely as seeing Bigfoot stroll down your street noshing on a bag of Cheetos? There’s no doubt that the muscle-up is a coveted move among CrossFitters, mainly because it takes tons of practice, skill and determination. It isn’t for the beginning CrossFit enthusiast …

Discovering the Olympic and Crossfit Edge in Strongman

In the summer of 2013, I competed in my first local Strongman Competition. I trained the specific movements necessary for weeks ahead of time. They included a 400 lb tire flip, a heavy rope pull, a heavy sled pull, an Atlas lift (lifting heavy logs over a pole), and maximum effort deadlifts in 1 minute...

My First Crossfit Workout

So you’ve taken the first steps and made the appointment at the box – and you’ve started calling it a box and not a gym. Your shoes are on. You’ve tried on four different outfits – wanting to make sure your butt and stomach are covered, that nothing is going to ride up and make...

Has Your Athletic Performance Leveled Off?

Do you find yourself doing the same ‘ole same ‘ole workout? Or worse yet, are you even unaware of how you are doing, good or bad, or if you are making the progress toward your personal goals? Maybe you are working-out on a consistent basis, but you’re simply going through the motions instead of training...

Massage Therapy – A Useful Tool for You

While many of you are aware of the benefits of massage therapy, there are still even more who haven’t yet discovered just how much benefit they can derive from regular treatment from a qualified therapist. So for my first Friday Thought, I am going to present what in effect is the ‘dummies guide’ to …

Strength-to-Endurance Balance: Evaluating Your Needs

It’s the box version of the chicken-versus-egg question… Which is more important to a CrossFitter: strength or endurance? The trainer’s response is that they’re both integral to your success, but you need to find a good balance between the two or you’ll never kick butt during the WODs or progress like you could …

Change, good or bad?

We don’t like change. It is implanted in our beings. If we have to go do something different, we shy away from it or worse yet, we speak out against it. We feel empowered when we voice our opinions and we do it everywhere. It is especially powerful because of social media and the power...

Competition Pressure And How To Neutralize It

Do you perform remarkable athletic techniques in practicing, only to struggle when the game is on the line? Even if this happens rarely to you, don’t worry…you’re not alone. Many athletes struggle performing up to their capabilities during competition, when it matters most. In this post we will look at the …

Be the Whiteboard

You do it. Your friends do it. i do it……we all do it. No one is safe from the hypnotic pull of the “all powerful whiteboard”. It has the ability to consume our thoughts and emotions – fill us with elation or anger, even control our own self image. Give it enough attention and that...
