It’s that time of year, the time where we as a CrossFit community start to get geared up for the CrossFit Open Workouts, and a lot is on the line. CrossFit HQ blew up my Facebook NewsFeed with a post about “Where do you stand?”. The graphic showed how the average man’s time compares with Khalipa, Froning and Ben Smith. Of course, the average man’s times pale in comparison to the giants of the sport. At the bottom of the graphic it states that almost a million people signed up for the open workouts, while only .4% actually make it to the CrossFit Games. For any box in the world, there is great incentive for any gym to have their athletes advance to regionals and nationals. For this reason, is it really possible to have a fair and balanced judging process, while athletes are being “no-repped” by their friends?
The result: A tangy, toothsome, easy-to-make salad of grilled calamari and sweet roasted peppers.
These muffins can be served warm, room temperature, or cold right out of the fridge. I know I’m beating a dead horse, but frittatas really are awesome.
These Paleo lamb burgers were fan-effing-tastic. Cavemen, make this meal for that special someone in your life and I promise that the 30 minutes you spend will be repaid in spades.
Competition in life makes you a better person, it is what the American society, and the world thrives best on. If you are trying to better yourself than it is most likely because you are trying to be the best YOU. It's time we stop giving out participation medals, and seeking goals that are difficult to obtain. ?
