I Don’t Eat Breakfast!

GASP!!! NO BREAKFAST?!?! I just can’t take it anymore! I was at work today. Someone brought in donuts (yes, I spell it the Dunkin way, get off me). I had the following exchange: Co-worker: Hey Mike, have a donut. Me: No thanks, I don’t eat breakfast. Co-worker: But breakfast is the most important meal of...

Brace yourself

Do you ever wonder why you drag yourself to your specific training facility or just get up from the couch and get your home equipment to train? Some days it really just feels like too much (especially in winter) and the questions and doubts start in your mind. Do you play along and just skip...

Kind of Science: Part Two

Living with PEDs Shuffled back to Dr. Whatshisname for the results, got my print outs and here’s the scoop! Magnesium, zinc, iron, red cells, white cells, blood sugar, all good! Vitamin D on the other hand, MARGINALLY DEFICIENT! Yeah, I was kind of hoping it was deficient. Because everyone wants some deficiency! Or …

Decoding CrossFit: A Recipe to Success

I have been a member of NewEra CrossFit for 18 months and I always wonder about the impact it has on my life. It is obvious that there is a positive impact of being fit. It enables you to perform physical tasks but it adds more to your life in terms of mental and psychological...

Stronger VS Lighter – Friends or Foes?

Ever see “Body weight” on a workout and cringe a little bit? I do. At 5’8″, I hover somewhere between 190 and 200 pounds. As a woman, I’m still challenged by many ‘body weight’ lifts. While squatting and dead lifting my body weight (and then some) isn’t an issue, I …

Exercise Dependence Syndrome

How much exercise is enough? When does exercise become a disruptive factor in our lives? Sport psychologists have been examining these questions for decades regarding athletes but not until recently has their been attention paid to the regular exerciser at the local gym or health club. Exercise Dependence Syndrome occurs …

Do You Struggle With Chronic Disease?

I live with Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease. I’ve done a pretty good job of keeping it at bay and living how I want to live. But the really stupid thing about Chronic Disease is that they are, well, chronic. They never go away and they fluctuate in intensity due to various factors. My RAD has been...

Baby Got Back: My New CrossFit Ass and Other Image Crushing Muscles

Random Person: “um, do you workout?” Me: “No. This totally happens by accident. Strangest thing ever.” Sound familiar? Welcome to my (new) daily life. I am a second generation athlete. My mother was a professional cyclist before I was born, and continued to dominate every athletic endeavour she sought thereafter …

The Importance of Performance Goals

I’ve written several posts and articles on the mental strength skill of goal setting, so this topic of Performance Goals should be familiar to you, right? Goal setting has long been promoted and used as a tool to enhance personal performance – in athletics, business, academics, and other areas of your life. In …
How CrossFit Causes Injuries

How CrossFit Causes Injuries

Does CrossFit cause injuries? Or are our bodies already damaged before we start CrossFit? Either way, you need a good coach and common sense for prevention.

The Need For A Workout Partner

It is no doubt that the best way to get involved in crossfit is to join a box, but there is a legion of us who workout at home. It is liberating to be able to have a space that is your own. When you work out on your own you have much more freedom....

Fish Out of Water?: Visualization for swimming CrossFitters

There I was, 6am, struggling through my swim practice as the emerging Texas sun painted oranges and pinks across the sky.  Beautiful pool, lovely peaceful setting except for the sound of my flailing arms and sputtering.  Like lots of CrossFitters, I’m a land-lover.  Simple really.  No pool at the box, so I …

You don't lift the barbell with your body. You lift it with your heart, and your mind, and every ounce of courage inside you.

Have a great and safe Labor Day Weekend. Enjoy your time with your endeavors, family or whatever you want to do. Many have kids (don't forget pets), spouses and commitments...so enjoy your time to even do nothing. Just like in our workouts, recovery is essential to our growth :) One thing is to please appreciateand acknowledge Deputy Jason Weber who just shot in his line of duty recently. He is not in the same privilege to enjoy this weekend as we all are. This 2014 Labor Day Weekend is for Klamath County Deputy Sheriff Jason Weber!
