Good morning, friends! So, this workout was a fun one! It was fast and furious and over before I knew it. Love that. As for the name, I joked to Mal that all of the granola I’ve eaten lately “fueled” me through it. Haha! For this workout, you need a barbell (I used 65 pounds), a kettlebell (I used 45 pounds), somewhere to run, and a timer. The movements: Power Cleans Push Presses Kettlebell Swings Running…

My CrossFit box did “Dirty Diana” a few weeks ago, and I saved it as a “must do” workout for at home. I finally had a chance to do it this past weekend, and it was definitely a lung-smoker! For this workout, you only need a kettlebell, timer, and some space to run (outside or on a treadmill). I also used a yoga mat, but only because I didn’t want to scrape up my knees on…

Hi, friends! I have another fun WOD for you guys! It’s called “Death By Slamball,” and it’s a tough one! For this workout, you only need 2 pieces of equipment: a slamball and a timer. (I used the one on my iPhone.) Here’s how it works: Start your timer and then, every minute, add one slamball rep to the rep scheme. So, starting with the first minute, you perform one rep. After that, the remaining time is…

Yesterday afternoon I noticed that Murphy rubbed his face with his paw a few times. His eye had been a little watery and wink-y the day before, but it didn’t seem to bother him other than a few paw rubs, so I didn’t think much of it. I just figured he got a little dirt in there or something. No big deal. Well, when I took a good look at Murphy’s eye, it looked kind…

Hi, guys! Here’s the workout that I mentioned the other day. It was a fun one and perfect for this pregnant lady, who definitely appreciated the rest between intervals! Thank goodness for EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute) workouts! The exercises, equipment, and weights that I used: Ball slams ””> Slam Ball @ 15 pounds Ball squats (air squats holding the slam ball) ””> Slam Ball @ 15 pounds Russian Kettlebell Swings ””> Kettlebell @…

Thank you for all of your nice comments on my previous post about our new home gym! I’m so excited about it and can’t wait to share my experience as well as the workouts I do there! That said, here’s my first basement workout and, boy, it was a good one! It ended up being a lot harder than it looks! The exercises, equipment, and weights that I used: Ball slams —> Slam Ball @ 15…

The majority of the equipment featured in this post was supplied by Again Faster Equipment. As always, the opinions expressed are honest and all my own. Last Friday, Mal and I received a very special delivery to our house: a CrossFit home gym from Again Faster! It was nearly 700 pounds worth of equipment! Unpacking all of the different equipment was like Christmas morning, and Mal and I were geeking-out hardcore. And, of course, we…

Hi, guys! Since it’s Monday and all, here’s another edition of “High Low High,” which recaps the high and low points of my weekend. I always want to finish on a high note, so there are more “highs” from my weekend than “lows.” If you’d like to play along, please leave a comment with your “high low high” from your weekend! Having our new home gym delivered from Again Faster! Friday afternoon was seriously better…

I receive all sorts of inquires about my CrossFit gear, including specific questions about my favorite products as well as my thoughts about what someone new to CrossFit should buy. Obviously, I’m not an elite athlete and everyone’s needs are different, but here are some of the things I personally use in my CrossFit workouts: gear I cannot WOD without and gear that I think is just nice to have. WHATCHA NEED:   Reebok CrossFit…
