Happy times for "Happy Hour".



Recently Allison, a member of my 5:15pm "Happy Hour" class, gave birth to her 3rd son Case.
In fact, she came to class and worked out on the day she gave birth to Case! This is her pictured center, next to myself and Dr. Reue...the Doctor delivering her baby. Her WOD just happened to be "Nicole": AMRAP in 20 min of 400m Run and Max Pullups.


Allison's Success Story

No scaling for this lady, she was cranking out unassisted pullups 3 at a time!



Actually, throughout the 9 months Allison scaled few things. Handstand walks and olympic weightlifting were all apart of her training regime. She was even a top finisher in most workouts up until the halfway point of her pregnancy!

Allison, we wish you a speedy recovery and will see you soon in the gym crushing workouts again!

Oh, Pyrros....



This was one of the first videos I watched for Olympic weightlifting when I first got into Crossfit.

It's of Pyrros Dimas training. He weighs about 175lbs in the video and does a 375lb power clean at the end! Inn the words of Travis Holley...this guy is silly strong!

Learning the butterfly in MAY '08



I wanted to learn this move bad back then! Anybody else feel that way about the butterfly pullup?

Practice, practice!

Matt Lowe, USA Swimming National Team Member

Now I see you...


















Now I don't!

This is Matt knocking out a 48in box jump with ease.

A world class athlete (swimmer), and he is just now tapping into his athletic potential. His strength gains have been fast. It will be scary when he puts this engine in the water for a real test run!

Matt, in the comments section, post what success you have seen from our training. Would you recommend it for other swimmers?

Typical Meals for Me


I Am Crossfit participants:

Here are a few examples of the meals I eat throughout the week. The portions are usually larger so I can have multiple meals from it.

Breakfast:


Usually includes- Bacon, meat (ex. turkey, sirloin, etc.), kale or spinach, zucchini, squash, onions, mushrooms, and eggs! I top with mustard most of the time...hey, don't knock it till you try it!





Din Din:

Usually meat and veggies! Brussels are done in a pan with olive oil, and asparagus is baked with olive oil and other seasonings. Protein choice of the day was backstrap.

My nutrition is specific for my goals. Your diet should reflect your goals as well.
