There should be a goal for every workout you do. Are you trying to get faster? Are trying to get stronger? Do you want to build stamina? Do you want to increase your explosiveness?
When a workout is designed the person programming it has a goal in mind. In this podcast I talk with Victor about how to understand what the goal of a workout is and how to make sure you achieve the intended goal.
Hope you enjoy.
We don't get a lot of teenagers in our box and I am always so happy when they do come. I wish I had been introduced to Crossfit and what real nutrition and fitness looked like when I was in high school. Crossfit is hard and eating right is even harder and these two ladies are dedicated to doing the hard work.
I am a big fab of EC Synkowski and what she is doing to help people eat better.

She has developed several tools to help people improve their nutrition, including the 800 Gram Challenge that has been adopted by 100s of Crossfit gyms to help their members improve their health. She developed her 10 Principles of Nutrition which she has turned into a masters class for people that want understand at a deeper of how to help themselves and others find the right diet.

We dig into several nutrition topics but my favorite was about helping people find the right food solution for them and helping them make improvements from where they are today.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
Brian is a member of Cocoa Beach Crossfit, a firefighter in Tampa Bay, lives on Merritt Island, and his nick name is SoCal. We get into how one person can be so geographically confused, how he relies on his fitness to do his job, and his advice to all of us to stay safe and healthy.
After this conversation I even appreciate more what Brian does as a first responder, it seems scary and truly brave.
Stay all the way to the end on this one because the advice Brian gives to stay safe at home is different than what I would have expected and you should all here it.
