Getting Caught Up

Posted by & filed under Nutrition, Uncategorized.

I'm trying to get caught up on things that I have been meaning to post, so here they come. A former teammate of mine, and a friend to some of us who have been around Coronado for awhile, succumbed to cancer recently.  He was a father, husband, and a pipehitter.  Right after I found out,… Read more »

    I can't help but watch THIS VIDEO CLIP and subsequent INTERVIEW with a twinge of jealousy.  I want  this to be my gym.  This is what Crossfit was before there were such things as bumper plates, pullup bars, and Dynamax balls.  The movements are completely timeless and represent the ultimate in function and true fitness. … Read more »

Fat and Meat

Posted by & filed under Nutrition, Uncategorized.

     It seems to my simple mind, that most doctors in this day and age will prescribe anything outside of common sense and discipline to try and keep us healthy.  The front page of Monday's paper had an article about the latest and greatest study on statins (funded by the drug manufacturer of course).  These… Read more »
