  • Go Hard, or Go Home… And Do Some Damage Control

    By Reena Tenorio | In Recovery | on February 25, 2014

    The term “overtraining” is constantly tossed around in the world of sports, performance, and training.

  • CrossFit Foundations

    By Ryan Brown | In Crossfit Training | on January 24, 2014

    Squat, Front Squat, Overhead Squat, Press, Push Press, Push Jerk, Deadlift, Sumo Deadlift High Pull, and Med Ball Clean. Those were taught to me as the 9 fundamental movements when I began in CrossFit. The real question is, if they are so fundamental then why do so many people butcher the hell out of them. […]

  • The nature of the sport of Weightlifting is such that it creates a sort of persona in each of us once fully committed.  Some of these traits are great, and others are slightly less than desirable; that is until, of course, you have them.  It is at that time they become a necessary evil.  There […]

  • Since the dawn of man – or at least since the popularization of CrossFit – the intranets has been ablaze with coaches vilifying high rep weightlifting.   “The snatch and clean & jerk are meant to be done at low reps.”   “Doing the snatch and clean & jerk for high reps is dangerous.”   […]

    By paul nobles | In Crossfit Training | on August 26, 2013

      Unless you follow my blog, EatToPerform.com, you probably don’t know who I am.  Since Chad asked me to write an article for JTS, I am going to ask you guys to assume that I have some idea of what I’m talking about which saves us a long introduction that frankly isn’t all that interesting.  […]

  • The Journey Back into CrossFit

    By Ryan Brown | In Crossfit Training | on August 14, 2013

  • Pain Doesn’t Equal Productivity

    By Juggernaut | In Crossfit Training | on July 23, 2013

    By Christina Sloyer One of the biggest CrossFit lessons I’ve learned over the last year is that the “no pain, no gain” approach that most of us have is pretty ass-backwards. Sure, us CrossFitters love to put ourselves through grueling workouts like the Regionals’ “Hundreds” or Hero WODs for a whole host of reasons – […]
