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

Why We Program The Way We Program!

Some insight to the programming here at CrossFit Peekskill   We get asked all the time: Why are are we doing this workout? Who does the programming here? Is this just random? Well, I am here to tell you that there is a method to the madness!! The coaches here at CrossFit Peekskill chat daily about workouts and make sure we are hitting everything we can to benefit you. Obviously no program will please all athletes; it is common for athletes to choose not to do workouts with movements that they are poor at. However, if we want to be the best athlete we can be, the best human we can be, working weaknesses is part of the program.   The goal of the program here at CrossFit Peekskill is to improve a person’s General Physical Preparedness and of course HAVE FUN! This means that when a person is given a task, whether it be chasing a criminal, carrying groceries, shoveling snow, building a new shed, or playing outside with your kids, the multitude of functional movements they perform in the gym means they are physically prepared for that task,  even though they may not have been given this task before. Prepared for life!   This means we must hit a broad range of different workouts and movements. We make sure we are training all the different energy systems from sprinting/lifting, to a workout lasting several minutes, or a workout lasting a much longer period of time. We also must make sure we are using functional movements! Functional movements are multi-joint, they are safe, essential for life, and most... read more
