Nutrition is a big piece of reaching your fitness goals regardless of what they are. There are a lot of folks with a lot to say on the subject and it is super tough to sift through the crap. When you find someone you can trust hold on to them. Having someone you can trust not only to dispense information … Read More

Here is a follow up to the Fran video from the other day. CI asked me some questions about the workout and I give my thoughts as well as some bonus ridiculousness from one of the kids at the orphanage. It certainly speaks the the “constantly varied” portion of the CrossFit tenets that we adhere to. Even though our training … Read More

CI posted a comment to the travel post that reminded me of some pretty sweet footage that I had archived from our trip down to South Africa two years ago.

Sunday is the only day that i take completely off and even though I don’t go into the gym or answer any email until late in the evening it is … Read More

Folks are frequently emailing me about their vacation plans and asking me to send them a few workouts to do while they are travelling.  Right out of the gate I am wondering “where is the journal full of workouts that I have been writing and you have diligently been recording for the past however long you have been coming to … Read More

Before I was married a friend gave Erin and I some sound advice. If you want to be happy in marriage then don’t be selfish. It seemed so easy. I wasn’t really a selfish person and she didn’t seem all that selfish so we were definitely going to kick marriage in the ass. It turns out that after we got … Read More

This makes me happy. If this doesn’t make you happy too then something might be wrong with you that even deadlifts and fish oil can’t fix. We can certainly talk about it though.

Tough call

We make lots of decisions everyday. Most of them are pretty easy, in fact many of them have become almost automatic. It doesn’t take much mental effort to get your pants on. It might take considerable effort to choose which pair of pants to wear but once the selection of which pants has been made the next few steps are … Read More
