Best Nutrition Advice Ever

With the CrossFit BNI Paleo Challenge now underway, we want to give you some words to live by. This “diet” is not hard to simplify. CrossFit founder, Greg Glassman explains it like this:

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.

Our friends at Steve’s Original Paleo Kit put it this way:

We are so excited for everyone who has registered to participate in the CrossFit BNI Paleo challenge. Through discipline, determination, and community support, we know that all the participants will end up making tremendous improvements in their overall health and individual WOD performances. Good luck!

The Ever-expanding Appeal of CrossFit

Click on the photo to read Bob Harper’s CrossFit story.

Current CrossFitters know all of the benefits – physical, mental, emotional – that this sport has brought into their lives. However, we are often faced with resistance from those outside the CrossFit world. Increasingly, however, CrossFit is becoming more and more mainstream, and has been getting some serious attention on one of network television’s most popular shows.

The Biggest Loser on NBC features a trainer named Bob Harper, who has lead countless people through their own weight-loss transformations. But if you watch the show, you might notice some very familiar training methods to what goes on at the box. Truth be told, Bob is a CrossFitter and he is taking the theory and practice of CrossFit to his show. In the following article, Bob outlines what CrossFit means to him and how he has used it to help those who have turned to his show for answers.
