Gotta Catch Up On Those ZzZzZ’s

The importance of proper sleep and how it effects your training daily   We all know that sleeping is important. It is a vital part of our survival. So why do so many of us neglect a quality nights sleep? As coaches we hear it all the time. “I feel horrible today. I have no energy. Everything hurts and feels heavy.” We usually pull the athlete aside and the first couple of questions we ask go like this, “Did you eat?” “How did you sleep last night?” and 9 times out of 10 the answer is “I slept horrible.” Getting little or poor sleep can contribute to a  higher body composition and can put up a nasty fight with you when trying to lose weight. There is a direct correlation between sleep quantity and quality and weight loss. When a person is tired and exhausted, their hormones go crazy and get out of balance. A small hormonal shift in your body can have a significant impact on your ability to not only lose weight but to also hinder putting on muscle! We are fully aware of how busy each and every one of us can be, so here are a few tips to help get the biggest bang for your buck when going to bed!   Tip #1- Commit to getting a certain amount of sleep nightly. Try to stay on a sleep schedule on the weekends as well. You can’t make up your partying ways from the weekend by sleeping in one day. It just doesn’t work like that. Tip #2- Get rid of all light in your... read more

The Worst 4 Letter Word In CrossFit And Life!!

Can’t I can’t do this. I can’t do that. I can’t. I can’t. I can’t.   The word “Can’t” needs to be eliminated from everyone’s vocabulary like, yesterday! We spend entirely way too much time focusing on the things we do not have or things we can’t control. This creates a lot of negative thoughts, a terrible mindset, and way too much pressure.   Life isn’t linear. Not everything is going to be laid out for you. If you spend your time waiting for perfect conditions then nothing will ever happen the way you want it to. We hear all the time…   “I have to do THIS to have this.” NO. Be the thing you want to have first and then order will line up.   “I want to weigh 135 pounds.” “I’ll be happy with my body when I weigh 135 pounds.”   Now approach it a different way and watch your goal become a reality.   “I love my body just the way it is.” You are now confident in the way you look and more dedicated to staying healthy.   Set a goal you have control over. Saying you want to lose 50 pounds, Back Squat 400 pounds, or get your first pull-up is out of your control, Until you come up with a plan. You don’t have control over the outcome but you do have control over your behavior.   Want to lose 50 pounds? Make your goal to eat your vegetables, drink a gallon of water a day, or get 8 hours of sleep. Those are things in your control and will put... read more

How Much Protein Should I Eat?

You may have a heard a coach say it to your before: you need to eat more protein! And while you may have been told it helps build lean mass, there’s a lot more to protein than you may think. Protein is essential for us in so many ways – it supports muscle growth, promotes healthy brain function, and is vital for our immune function, metabolism, satiety, and performance. What does this mean for you? An improved mood, better recovery, weight management… just to name a few benefits! When you engage in high intensity exercise the need for protein increases. Here’s why: Protein doesn’t get stored in the body the same way fats and carbohydrates do. Maintaining our amino acid pool is like keeping a sink full without a drain plug – you have to keep the water running or the sink will become empty. What happens when this amino acid pool in our body runs dry? The body looks to our muscle fibers to support our energy needs. That’s right, all that muscle you’ve been trying to build can be ‘eaten’ by our body just to keep us functioning properly. Pretty counterproductive! Therefore, you need to maintain an adequate intake of protein every day. Without adequate protein you may see: * Trouble losing weight * Low energy levels and fatigue * Poor concentration * Mood swings * Muscle, bone and joint pain * Low immunity * Frequent injuries Protein can also help to ensure a quick recovery from injuries as our body requires more protein (again, consistently) to repair itself. The fact is, with regular endurance training you... read more
