Eat Your Vegtables

We have been told all of our lives- “eat more vegetables”. Even in a world where there’s a constant disagreement over what we should and shouldn’t eat, vegetables are almost always on the ‘do’ list. while everyone realizes they should eat more vegetables, they do not understand just how important they can really be.  Vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals. What can happen when a diet is lacking in these? Fatigue, insomnia, impaired growth, poor circulation, dry hair or hair loss, diminished immune function, shortness of breath, bruising, muscle atrophy, bone loss and muscle cramps. Phew!! That’s quite the list. But it doesn’t stop there.  Do you find your always hungry? When you consume a diet that’s low in the micro-nutrients found in vegetables, it may cause your appetite to remain high. This continued appetite increase, even when you’re consuming a diet high in calories, may be the result of the body trying to force you to keep eating until your basic nutritional needs are met.  So why try not eating more vegetables…. This relatively easy fix could have a HUGE impact on your life.  Written by Coach Chloe  Certified Nutritionist.  Want to learn more?

The Dreaded “C” Word.

Why working on “Cardio” twice a week can greatly improve your fitness Let’s first start off by getting rid of that word “cardio.” Every workout we do in CrossFit can be classified as “cardio.” What we need to understand is our Aerobic Capacity. Our engines. This is an overlooked aspect of training because it’s not the “sexy” stuff. It isn’t a muscle up, or a 1 rep max, or a “girl” WOD. It isn’t something you see people post on social media because most people aren’t doing it. Now what if I told you that combining your weekly CrossFit WODs with small doses of pure endurance training could maximize your potential as an athlete? Meaning the “sexy” stuff would greatly improve. SIGN ME UP! Therefore, it comes as no surprise why many elite CrossFit athletes have started incorporating pure endurance work on top of their CrossFit training.   At a basic level, there are two different energy systems that we train, Glycolytic (Anaerobic) and Oxidative (Aerobic). Majority of CrossFit WODs fall into the Glycolytic system or Anaerobic. These are your high intensity workouts that create a lactic acid build up testing your “Lactate Threshold.” Let’s take a classic CrossFit “Girl” WOD like Helen. On paper this workout doesn’t look too bad. 3 Rounds 400m Run 21 KB Swings 12 Pull-ups   But we all know this is a dirty trick and this workout turns into a giant suckfest pretty quick! Any workout that takes you to this place is mostly through the glycolytic system. This system is relied upon to produce increased amounts of power for semi-sustained periods of... read more
