Remember, bowling this Saturday. Its pretty official. Let us know you are coming on the Facebook Page here.
Someone asked me last week how much water they should drink. I was struggling to come up with an official answer since it seems like most ‘research studies’ on water...

Remember bowling is this Saturday, try and visualize some strikes.
Visualization, or mental rehearsal, is a nifty tool. Fact is, the human brain can’t tell the difference between a well imagined thought and the real deal (why we need sleep paralysis to refrain from running...
Special bonus for tonight – 2 posts in 1! First, Rich breaks down the skill work for Saturday’s mobility/skill class – Double Unders! Then, Keenan discusses the ant-bend in Olympic lifting and what the Oly class will focus on for Sunday. Enjoy!!
Ok people. No more...
As much as I hate to say it, there are things that challenge me and many female athletes that are simply non-issues for the dudes. Push-ups, pull-ups, dare I even mention chest-to-bars? Achk. Unless you are a rock star, you probably walked into the box and needed to scale some of your...
SNOW! Need I say more?!! The long awaited season has finally come! And what do I hear around the box?
“It’s raining here, you know what that means?”
“When are we going up to the mountains?”
“When are we going snowboarding?”
“When are we going to...
That’s what we’re doing kids! So get your bowling game faces on and make sure your (bowling) balls are clean. Get your mind out of the gutter and hopefully your ball too.
We’re planning on dinner at The Humble Potato at 6, across from the LMU campus. Then we’re gonna...
Balance is not stillness. It is a dynamic dance of small movements, ever reflecting on and responding to the environment. At the box I see this in the shaking leg as the torso remains stable – the shock absorber below allowing the top to continue work without toppling.
In life, the...
These three words I want every single one of you guys to ingrain into your heads. Got it? Good.
You guys have heard me plenty of times say that CrossFit is an amazing thing, WHEN DONE THE RIGHT WAY. Especially now that we are starting this athlete and competitor programming. When making your...
Sometimes I hate those words. To me, it just means doing 18 million things all at once and then being able to do them in a short amount of time. Like sort of a day like this:
Work out swim
Appointment to get my passport renewed
Go to work by 8:00am
Buy a birthday...
Some of us are nerds. Nerds in the sense that we geek out on CrossFit information and videos. Take it a little further and (for me) much of it revolves around Olympic weightlifting. We can watch CrossFit Games videos, but after those have been exhausted, watching standard movements isn’t...
Thought I would start your week off with some motivating fitness videos to get you in the box!!!
Workout of the Day 11/5/2013 – Tuesday
Snatch 6 x 1
Rest 2 minutes between each set. Should be performed at 90-95% of 1 Rep Max Snatch.
Amongst the many complaints last week of not knowing what the next days workout was, believe it or not we did get a little positive feedback on the unknown. As we promised we will start publishing WODs the day before again, starting with today. But with yet another experiment… do you...
Last day of not knowing the WOD. Hope the week didn’t kill you guys too much. Maybe you appreciate the WOD’s being posted more, maybe your addiction to knowing waned a bit. Either way, the experiment is over…for now.
In just about every sport, the better athletes are...
