Follow the Road to Carson: East Regional

Next up, my home sweet home - the East Regional. Once upon a time regionals were in a place not too far away (Canton, MA - about 2 hours north of here).

This one's for all the people out there who would benefit from swallowing their pride, stripping the… Continue reading 7 Reasons to Squat Ass-to-Grass

We Squat, Bro.

As much as I love Lululemon, a sore spot for me has always been how all of their models online are the same slender 'yogi'-looking girls with little to no muscle definition. As a CrossFitter, I do NOT look like that. According to my measuring tape and their sizing chart, I'm a perfect 10. With both junk in… Continue reading We Squat, Bro.

Dave Castro Doesn’t Define You

Ah... it's that time of year.
