CrossFit Open 2018

It’s that time of year again, the CrossFit Open is just around the corner! Just like last year, we’ll be doing the weekly Open WODs on Saturdays starting on February 24th and finishing on March 24th. We’ll change up a few things, but for the most part everything is going to stay nearly the same. Registration for the Open ends …

Cooking With Keras: Char Siu

This is one of my favorite dishes to cook, it’s so addicting! The balance of sweet and savory in the sauce and the fattiness of the pork shoulder makes it irresistible. I make it in small batches in the oven and by the time I cook my second batch I may have already eaten the entire first batch…oops! Char siu …

Cooking With Keras: No-Knead Pizza

My past two pizza posts have both involved making your own pizza dough. However, most people are tepid about all the steps involved, which is totally understandable. If I didn’t have a stand mixer, I would hate having to knead the dough by hand. It’s hard work! So why do we even need to knead the dough? Flour has proteins …

Intergalactic Throwdown 2017

The Intergalactic Throwdown returns September 30th to CrossFit South! This will be a fundraiser competition open to all CFS members, as well as any athletes in the area.

3 Weeks To A Faster 2K Row

I like to row. Okay, that’s a lie. Let’s try that again. I’m kinda good at rowing so I like it when it shows up in WODs because I know I’ll do well! When I took up CrossFit many years ago, I found that I was decent at rowing. I’m tall, I’m heavy, so therefore I’m good at rowing! It’s …

Rowing: Meters vs Calories

I thought I’d make a quick post about the difference when it comes to meters vs calories on the erg. Spoiler alert: there is none! We’ve all heard it and probably parroted these thinking they were true: Okay, I haven’t heard the last one too much, but some people think everything changes when doing calories because when you stop pulling …

Cooking With Keras: Deep Dish Pizza

What’s your favorite type of pizza? So many different styles! New York, Sicilian, Chicago, St Louis, sushi, calzones, and so much more! I love them all, but apparently some people really HATE Chicago-style deep dish pizza: It’s a tale as old as time, New York vs Chicago pizza, distinct in their own ways. Thin foldable grease traps from New York, …
