Don’t Eat Toxins
By: Chris Kresser, M.S.
It is important to understand as we discuss the role of dietary toxins in contributing to modern disease. Most of us won’t get sick from eating a small amount of sugar, cereal grain, soy, and industrial seed oil. But if we eat those nutrients (or rather anti-nutrients) in excessive quantities, our risk of developing modern diseases rises significantly. READ MORE

Find What Works for YOU!
By: Carlos Bown
When I first started getting into fitness and CrossFit I used to look up to elite athletes like Rich Froning and spend hours watching YouTube videos trying to figure out what all these athletes eat and do to achieve a great physique and results.  

So I figured since I wanted to be a better athlete, I should follow one of them and do exactly what they do. One thing that took a long time to realize is that these elite athletes have different diets, training routines believes, etc. There are athletes that eat 8 meals throughout the day, other athletes don’t eat much during the day and get all their calories at night, other athletes do intermittent fasting, paleo, keto, zone, etc, etc.

The truth is that what works for them, might not work for you- everybody is different and our bodies react differently depending on our training volume, recovery, food intake, etc. 

Don’t be afraid of trying out different things, and making some changes until you find what works for YOU. Find something that makes you happy, healthy, and that’s going to help you achieve your goals. We learn from failure, not from success!

Fight The Morning Sludge: Push-Up Challenge
By: Kyle Hoef
Ben Bergeron says “Win the Morning, Win the Day.” I have a pretty strict morning routine, but like many of you, I have that first 15 minutes upon waking up that either wins my morning or ruins my day. To ensure I would win my morning every time, I challenged myself to do push-ups first thing in the morning. The second my alarm goes off, I rolled out of bed and did 30 push-ups. I found by doing this, my morning sludge went away instantly. Then the next week I increased to 40 push-ups and continued to add 10 each week until I could perform 100 unbroken. 

If you need a jump start to the morning, I challenge you to try 10-20 push-ups right when you wake up for a week straight. You will feel more energized to tackle the day and help you sleep better at night. Win the Morning, Win the Day!
