Congratulations to everyone on this board, everyone striving to get on it, everyone who has been knocked off of it, and is determined to get back on, and everyone who finds this a source of motivation to push themselves to a level that they did not believe even existed. A special congratulations goes out to those who are on the board in completely different areas, showing a superb level of overall athleticism, and what CrossFit is all about after all. Keep up the good work, and let's get all these blank spaces filled up.

Saturday Games at Cole Park

Where: Cole Park Amphitheatre

When: 4pm Saturday June 11th

These park games are always a lot of fun, we bring out the things we rarely get a chance to do such as tire flips. sandbag carry, etc... Plus team wod's are always fun. We change the dynamic from individual focus to team focus, which is nice change of pace. Look forward to seeing you there!


hot day but a fun team workout

The Workout - 2 teams of 5

Each team runs approx 600-800m in opposite directions, out and back. When the last member crosses the line the team can begin knocking out their workload.

Return to start and complete 250 kettlebell swings, and 250 pushups, for a total as a team. Each team member must do a minimum of 15 reps of each exercise. The remainder can be divided up as desired. Each team member must make 2 trips to the top of the hill and back; one with a log, and the other carrying a sandbag. Team members can help each other make these trips as long as each person makes at least 2 trips up and back.

To finish, each team runs in the opposite direction from which they started, and again the time is stopped when the last person crosses the line.

Matt's Team - 18:19

What I'm reading...about lard

The following is an excerpt from Gary Taubes' latest book Why We Get Fat ...and What To Do About It.

Take lard, for example, which has long been considered the archetypal example of a killer fat. It was lard that bakeries and fast food restaurants used in large quantities before they were pressured to replace it with the artificial trans fats that nutritionists have now decided might be a cause of heart disease after all. You can find the fat composition of lard easily enough, as you can for most foods, by going to a U.S. Department of Agriculture website called the National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference. You'll find that nearly half the fat in lard (47 percent) is monounsaturated, which is almost universally considered a "good" fat. Monounsaturated fat raises HDL cholesterol and lowers LDL cholesterol (both good things, according to our doctors). Ninety percent of that monounsaturated fat is the same oleic acid that's in the olive oil so highly touted by champions of the Mediterranean diet. Slightly more than 40 percent of the fat in lard is indeed saturated, but a third of that is the same stearic acid that's in chocolate and is now considered a "good fat," because it will raise our HDL levels but have no effect on LDL (a good thing and a neutral thing). The remaining fat (about 12 percent of the total) is polyunsaturated, which actually lowers LDL cholesterol but has no effect on HDL (also a good thing and a neutral thing). In total, more than 70 percent of the fat in lard will improve your cholesterol profile compared with what would happen if you replaced that lard with carbohydrates. The remaining 30 percent will raise LDL cholesterol (bad) but also raise HDL (good). In other words, as hard as this may be to believe, if you replace the carbohydrates in your diet with an equal quantity of lard, it will actually reduce your risk of having a heart attack. It will make you healthier. The same is true for red meat, bacon and eggs, and virtually any other animal product with might choose to eat instead of the carbohydrates that make us fat.
