Finding Your Fit: Jeans for Crossfit Girls

Strength and fitness do not equate to thin and slender. Certain physical regimes build up muscles, resulting in firm but bulky bodies. The bodies are healthy and strong, but may struggle to squeeze into standard-sized clothing. Women living in the Crossfit realm of exercise know this all too well. When you’re a Crossfit …

Diet Starts on Monday

I smoked for 16 years. From 11-27 years old, I smoked tens of thousands of cigarettes (I’ve done the math). It was part of who I was. I ran cross country and smoked before and after practice. I smoked right before a meal and immediately after. It was the first thing I did when I...

Eating and exercising for the body you want

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 …

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...
