How To Not Cook Sweet Potatoes

How To Not Cook Sweet Potatoes Written by Bryan Miller Here is how you shouldn’t cook sweet potatoes! If you are NOT a fan of perfectly cooked sweet potatoes, then do not cook them the way I am about to describe. Step 1: Rinse and peel the sweet potatoes or yams. I find they are easier to peel when wet. I also like them to be peeled so all I have to do is consume without messing around with the skin. Step 2: Wrap the potatoes in tin foil, which will ensure a they are cooked thoroughly. Step 3: Get

Should You Be Taking Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)? Written by Calvin Sun (Originally published in 2012) I have received a good number of questions lately from both athletes and coaches in our community on branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplementation.

Find Balance in Your Life

Find Balance in Your Life Written by Bryce Smith Drive, passion, intensity, and focus are all great tools to have in your tool box in order to succeed in CrossFit, in your career and in life in general.

Reflect on Your Journey

Reflect on Your Journey Written by Cat Blatner After years of training in the Sport of CrossFit (or any sport for that matter), it is very common for all of us to fall into temporary ruts. Everyone goes through struggles and it’s easy to allow negative thoughts to creep into our heads and at times they can manipulate us into believing that we are not getting better. These “ruts” can be extremely frustrating and can prevent us from further progress in our sport. Sometimes it’s easy to forget where or why we started on this journey in the first place.
