What is your main event?
Written by C.J. Martin

Should you be performing each of the Open workouts multiple times during each week of the Open? Well . . . it depends.

In my perfect world, the answer would be “no.” But I have come to accept that it’s not quite that black and white. CrossFit is an extremely competitive sport, and if I want to give my athletes the best chance at winning, there has to be some flexibility in answering this question.

Athletes need to ask themselves one important question,

(As published on the CrossFit Games website)

SoCal’s CrossFit Invictus recently welcomed 19-year-old Lauren Fisher to their affiliate team. As a high school senior, Fisher competed as an individual and finished 12th at the 2012 NorCal Regional. Now a freshman at San Diego State University, Fisher has chosen to forgo individual competition.

Over the past few weeks, we have heard quite a few announcements concerning the 2013 CrossFit Open. I am hoping this blog post will answer any questions that my fellow Invicti may have during these exciting times.

Written by Nuno Costa

Why yes . . . I am juicing.

No! Not that kind of juicing. If you thought I was going to be talking about steroids for performance gains, I have something even better to tell you about.

When I first heard about juicing I was a little reluctant to really give it a chance.
