  • In this post, I will finish up the discussion about protein powders by talking about Progenex’s Cocoon. Say you’ve finished all your meals and are still looking to get more protein into your diet. (Personally I look to get about 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight…so some days that’s entirely from food, and […]

  • Often in classes, when we reach the Metcon, the Rx weights associated with movements are extremely challenging, even unachievable for many in the class. And that is as it should be. Literally, no more than 10-15% of athletes in the class should be able to (or attempt to) address the workout at Rx weight, (and […]

  • As members “mature” in their CrossFit experience, whether it be through the advancement of skills, or simply the passage of time, many look to move into “Open Gym”. While this is admirable and does allow advanced CrossFitters looking for additional training time the opportunity to get added volume in a quality environment, it can also […]

  • Just as a short introduction, my name is Emily Henderson and I am a current member at CrossFit ICE. I hope to be posting on this blog with some topics that interest me and that I believe would be relevant to the CrossFit community. My background is in biology and chemistry, with four years of […]

  • A press by any other name, is not a press, at least not in terms of the amount of weight a lifter can raise. If you know anything about physics, its easy to understand that you can push press more than you can shoulder press, and you can push jerk more than you can push […]

    The Games Season is Over Already, What Do I Do? I don’t know about you, but my Games season came to a end a lot earlier than what I’m used to.  This year’s Open was a humbling (if not humiliating) experience for me.  In the 4 years I’ve competed in CrossFit, this will be the […]

  • Mental Toughness and Endurance Sports

    By admin | In Uncategorized | on March 5, 2013

    People say, “Wow, I could never run that far, swim that far, ride that far, or walk that far.” You know what I say?  Then you’ve already predestined your outcome. Belief that one can is so important to anything.  How many times have you noticed someone straight out of on-ramps, strong as an ox, but […]

  • Three things…(From Ben Bergeron of CrossFit New England – http://competitorswod.blogspot.com/2013/02/wednesday-22713.html) 1.  If you are a beast, and don’t “have enough time” to do the metcons/runs, but have time to throw around a barbell you are not going the Regionals or the Games.  Your weaknesses will be exposed – and it will be your fault for […]

    Mental Toughness Written by Sage Burgener (and her brother, Casey) – Reposted from www.crossfitinvictus.com I’m not going to say much in this post, I’m going to let my brother’s letter do all the talking (he doesn’t know I’m posting this. He’ll probably be upset. I’m ok with that). But I will say that last year […]

    What is the “CrossFit Open”?  This is where any athlete, anywhere can compete in their local affiliate over a period of several weeks.  These workouts will be the bar that is set to narrow the field of CrossFit competitors for competition at the Regional level.  Think of it like establishing a ranking like the NCAA […]

  • First Muscle Ups

    By admin | In Uncategorized | on February 14, 2013

    For so many of us, the Muscle Up is an ever elusive goal.  The kip, the hips, the pull through, the dip press.  So many pieces and so darned difficult to string together. Enter Jack.  Jack is a recent on-ramp graduate.  Monday’s class included Muscle Up progressions, but Jack just looked at the rings and […]
