The Chalk Conundrum

Written by Mike Hom from CrossFit Invictus It began as an off-handed joke. It progressed into semi-serious statements. It evolved into full-blown declarations. “Chalk is overrated.” Pro-Chalk I used to be pro-chalk.

Rx and Hydration

Oh for fun

I had a recent revelation of sorts while reading Mark Sisson’s “The Primal Blueprint.” I reference Sisson’s blog, MDA, a lot because I like his approach and his common-sense advice.

Twists and turns

If I had my druthers (By the way, druthers is a great word. Feel free to use it as often as you’d like. In fact, consider it your word WOD. As many druthers as you can work into a conversation. For time. … But I digress.), upon entering this world, I would have been handed more »

R&R

I am not an expert at most — well, really any — forms or kinds of exercise. But I do know how to rest. I can rest like nobody’s business. I am a Super Rester. But honestly, a lot of times, the importance of rest, of letting your body heal and recover and strengthen, gets more »

I complain a lot — endless, actually — about the exercises I hate in certain WODs, but there are some movements I really do more »

Balancing the scales

I’ve thought a lot recently about Justin’s recent post “Stay off the Scale.” In theory, I would love to agree with everything he said (editor’s note to Justin: I’m going to only partially throw you under the bus here. Please don’t raise my membership fee. Or make me do extra burpees.). Nothing would give me more »
