For those of you newer to the CrossFit lifestyle – you should already know by now we subscribe to a Paleolithic type of diet appropriately named “Paleo”.
The founder of the Paleo Diet, Robb Wolf, has created a system around adjusting your lifestyle which he calls Whole 9....
So much todo about how CrossFit is dangerous. You don’t have to look far to find someone talking about how you’re destine to catch a serious injury with all that high-intensity-barbelling stuff we do. Words like Rhabdo pop up on blogs as if we’re in the business of...

It’s finally here. For all...
I’m not gonna lie. Every day I hit the box, one of the first things I do is roll up to Benzo’s Quote of the Day section on the whiteboard. I’m always looking forward to the pearls of wisdom he’s dropped on us today. One common theme I noticed in many of his quotes...
Today, I’d like to talk about everybody’s favorite topic. RICE. No not Jerry Rice. No not Jasmine Rice. Not even Cody Rice. We’re talking the long practiced injury maintenance program:
Rest. Ice. Compression. Elevation.
To sum up a pretty informative and excellant...
So as I mentioned last night, I went to go see the new Batman Movie: Batman The Dark Knight Rises. Being the uber CrossFit geek I am, I see this one scene in the movie and I immediately think “Hot damn, I can blog about that”.
So, I’m sitting there eating my (paleo)...
Just got out of a late showing of Batman – and it was quite a long but very good movie…. I’m finding it quite appropriate to see this as today’s WOD. Both long and good. TWSS.
Have a great day, I’m calling it a night. =)

The following post was originally posted by Freddy Camacho of CrossFit One World on July 18th, 2012. In it, Freddy talks about something that’s slightly taboo to talk about at times – getting injured. Bottom line is this – you’re going to experience pain, soreness,...
I’m writing this post solely as yet another dude who works out at the box. Not on behalf, nor the perspective of any of the coaches or owners. And with a disclaimer like that, you know we’re about to touch on something meaty. (TWSS)
I’d like to...
If you think I like CrossFit and the numbers behind it, you haven’t spoken to Chris Bongiovanni, aka Bong. He’s probably the most analytical CrossFitter you’ll ever meet. You could tell him your times for benchmarks and PRs for lifts, and he’ll probably be able to tell...
Facebook. I swear it’s becoming like “The Universe” lately. There’s always something coming across my timeline that’s meaningful or timely. This just came across my timeline – and while it’s not all that timely, it sure is meaningful. It...
